Harwood Art Center is pleased to present SURFACE: Emerging Artists of New Mexico and
GhostPrism by Christopher MacQueen. SURFACE is an annual juried exhibition, endowed awards and professional
development program presented by Harwood Art Center, to support the creative and professional growth of emerging
artists and to expand their visibility and viability in our community. We have received hundreds of noteworthy submissions
over the five application cycles to-date; as of this year, we will have served 66 exceptionally talented, committed artists,
including the 12 we accepted for 2017.
This year’s SURFACE Main Gallery exhibition features Meghan Arcaro, Jazmyn Crosby, Margaret Farrell, Michael Gomez,
Jessica Gross, Kathryn Jaroneski, Shaelin Jornigan, Malcolm King, Cecilia McKinnon, Gwen Miller Wagner, Gaspar
Salazar-Mendez, and Jeremy Salazar.
Christopher MacQueen received the SURFACE 2016 Harwood Art Center Solo Exhibition Award, presented annually for
artistic excellence, originality of vision and dedication to practice; he will have a concurrent exhibition in the Front Gallery.

SURFACE would not be possible without our extraordinary local collaborators at Albuquerque Art Business Association, A Good Sign, The Grove Cafe & Market, Tractor Brewing Company and University of New Mexico School of Architecture & Planning.
