Recycled Heart: Artists of ArtStreet | Harwood Art Center

Recycled Heart: Artists of ArtStreet

Friday, February 02, 6:00pm

Opening Reception: Friday, February 2, 6 - 8pm
Exhibition Runs: February 2 - 22, 2018

Bringing the injustice of poverty and homelessness together, Recycled Heart is an exhibit that is uniquely poised to capture the diverse, distinct, and highly individual responses of ArtStreet artists’ interpretation of their community experiences in relation to poverty and homelessness.

ArtStreet artists channel the potential within themselves and within discarded objects to create something new. They quickly learn to see media in a fresh way, enabling them to transform raw materials into works of art. Their portfolios highlight themes of re-purposing and offering alternative perspective, much like those who are impoverished or living on the street must do with many materials and situations.

Current Studio Artist

Harwood Art Center is my sanctuary and my connection to the community.  It’s unusual and amazing to have these opposing forces satisfied in one place.  The Harwood community enriches my life because of studio artists, staff, teachers, and exhibits. Through classes at the Harwood Art Center and mentoring from influential New Mexico artists, I began painting in 2005.  My paintings have been included in exhibits at the Albuquerque Museum, the Museum of Fine Arts in Santa Fe, Mariposa Gallery in Albuquerque, and Patina Gallery, in Santa Fe.
