HARWOOD STORIES

Barbara Grothus

Former Harwood Artist


I remember when the Harwood was a big empty building and Friedje had recruited a few people from the community to brainstorm about what it might become. The art community was large; studio and gallery spaces were limited. A match was made, and as the space filled up, the vision evolved. Albuquerque United Artists had an office, and held exhibitions during the 1990s. In 2000, I collected burned relics from the Cerro Grande fire.The Harwood had a space available, and though I have always had my own studio (OK, those burned things were sooty), I rented a studio there while I worked on some ideas. Eventually, I had two shows about the fire The Harwood also awarded me an exhibition in 2005. That was a true honor. The place has been part of my life for the entire time it has existed as a “home for art and artists.
