Artists of the Month: September 2020
Yvonne, a native of Texas, has been dabbling in art most of her life. After retiring from the business world and raising a family, she has concentrated on her love of oil painting. She is a member of local art associations, holding various offices. She has taken private art lessons from local and international teachers in addition to attending workshops. Her interest is mainly tree formation in landscapes.
Arlene, a watercolorist and “watercolor collagist,” has lived in Las Cruces for over fifteen years. Prior to living in New Mexico, she resided in California, Oregon and Washington State. Arlene has taken numerous workshops from artists in the Southwest. She says the master artist of the natural world around us is her greatest influence. She is happiest at her easel painting plein air in the wide open spaces of the West.
New Gallery Artist
Marty is a New Mexico native who grew up in the Mesilla Valley. He creates his art with fused glass, that is, glass that is “melted” or fused at approximately 1400 degrees Fahrenheit. He has had a varied career as an accountant, building contractor, high school teacher, oil and gas landman and currently a home inspector. Mr. Alberson became fascinated with fused glass when a stained glass project he was creating needed a fused glass element. That “element” in the stained glass project captured his imagination and he has been “melting glass” for the last 11 years.
In addition, the gallery artists offer art in many media, which include:
original paintings, photography, jewelry, ceramics, fabric collage,
stained glass and gourds, as well as affordable note cards and prints.
