Harwood Art Center is pleased to present SURFACE: Emerging Artists of New Mexico and Beyond the Future by Nate Lemuel. 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.

SURFACE is open to individuals working in any media and from diverse creative fields, including drawing, painting, printmaking, jewelry making, fashion, design, architecture, digital media, etc. We encourage submission of new and / or experimental works. Harwood takes a broad approach to “emerging artist,” and applicants are asked to self-identify with this description. Applicants must be currently living, working and/or studying in New Mexico.

This year’s SURFACE exhibition in Harwood’s Hall Gallery features Thomas Bowers, Jordan Caldwell, Bridey Caramagno, Lauren Dana Smith, Harley Kirschner, Adrian Martin, Madison McClintock, Kate Overton Miller, H. E. Ramage, and Daisy Trudell-Mills.

Nate Lemuel received the SURFACE 2020 Harwood Art Center Solo Exhibition Award, presented annually for artistic excellence, originality of vision and dedication to practice; his exhibition will run concurrently in Harwood’s Front Gallery.

Beyond the Future by Nate Lemuel

There comes a moment of appreciation for what one loves to do as they struggle, but continue to make it happen no matter how much it means to them. The joy that envelopes, the realness that conveys honesty, the unity of hopefulness, the passion for stepping out in confidence, the struggle with identity, and the continuance of stories that need to be told more, visually continue to happen as we live our lives through we pass.                                                                                                                                                                    read more
