Recycled Heart: The Artists of ArtStreet, Albuquerque Healthcare for the Homeless
Bringing the injustice of poverty and homelessness together, Recycled Heart is an exhibit, like all ArtStreet shows, that captures the diverse, distinct, and highly individual response of our artists to community-chosen themes.

ArtStreet artists work with the potential within themselves and discarded materials to create something new. Artists quickly learn to see materials in a new way-enabling them to transform raw material into artwork. The artwork highlights materials that are re-purposed and given a new perspective, much like those who are impoverished or living on the street must do with many materials and situations. {both galleries}

Our Sheets: Danila Rumold
Rooted in the knowing that motherhood and artistic practice are co-creative forces, Rumold blurs the boundaries between family life and art-making to explore the unseen labor of domestic life and the relative invisibility of women artists- yielding intimate portraits of paradox: isolation and connection, oppression and liberation, and becoming and being. {front gallery}

HARWOOD STORIES

Karen Mazur
Karen Mazur

Current Harwood Artist


I have been a Harwood Artist since 2001. Four different spaces, four different lifetimes and across media. Sometimes my studio has been a graphic arts workshop, sometimes a painting studio, sometimes a production pottery shop, but being here is always wonderful. From late nights preparing materials for art students to mornings doing pre-natal yoga while I waited for the older child to be done with his work at Escuela del Sol, it is wonderful to reflect on all the art adventures I’ve had over the years at Harwood. The very first night I lived in Albuquerque was spent at a film program at Harwood and from that moment I knew this was an organization I wanted to be involved with. That was 17 years ago and the dream of that first night has blossomed into a reality and a community of which I am proud to be a part!
