Art League News

Our own Buffy Nelson was interviewed on February 10 on Spencer Beckwith's Saturday morning "On the Arts" show on KUNM!

The New Mexico Art League​ is about "giving access to people who would typically not have the opportunity to take an art class -- folks who always wanted to explore that part of themselves," says Executive Director Buffy Nelson.

In the Sunday, September 17 edition of the Albuquerque Journal, Wesley Pulkka writes that our exhibit "Quench: Water in the Desert " a knock-down, drag-out success that should quench most realist art lovers’ thirst for excellent landscapes.

The show runs through October 7.

Wesley Pulkka reviewed our "LIMITED EDITION" exhibit in the Sunday, August 6 edition of the Albuquerque Journal! Click here to read it.

After lauding works by Ruth Cohen, Dennis Liberty, Dinah Swan, Mary Sundstrom, Mary Sweet and  Fred Yost, he said, "There are even more walls full of well-rendered ideas, real places, things, people and flights of the    imagination. 'Limited Edition' is a    solid exhibition." 

   The show runs through August 19.

"The Art of the Flower" exhibit and our own J. Waid Griffin were featured on KRQE news on June 7! Watch it below.

Tony Ryder's February 25 demonstration "Painting the Portrait in Oil" was illuminating and inspirational! Thank you Tony. View slideshow here.
