“Cuts to the Heart” Art Exhibition Opens at KiMoJanuary 27th, 2014 at 6:15 pm by KRQE Staff under Community Affairs, News
Three artists are featured in a new art exhibition opening on Thursday, February 6th at the Historic KiMo Theatre Art Gallery. Entitled “Cuts to the Heart,” the exhibition offers a view of how three artists approach different themes unified by the relief printmaking process, the love of the sculptural aspects of carving and the art that results from “violence” done to a surface.
A free public opening night reception for the artists is from 6 – 8 p.m.
The three artists featured in the exhibition are:
- Anastasia Andersen, who comes from New Jersey and moved to Albuquerque in 1994.
- Sculptor Justine Ortiz earns her living primarily as a sculptor, but also works in many mediums, including painting, performance, printmaking, needle felting, casting and jewelry making.
- San Antonio native Henry Morales studied art at San Antonio College and printmaking at the McNay Art Institute.
The KiMo Gallery is open during normal hours of operation of the KiMo Theatre (Wednesday – Saturday 11 a.m. – 8 p.m.; Sunday 11 a.m. – 3 p.m.) and during most KiMo events. During the day visitors are requested to enter at the KiMo’s Business Office at 423 Central Avenue NW (corner of 5th and Central) where they will be directed to the gallery to view and enjoy the exhibition at no charge. For the reception, visitors may access the gallery through the 417 Central Avenue entry. The show is open until March 22nd.
