“1 x 15” Photography show explicitly kicks off the New Year!

The cold weather and the Holiday did not prevent us from having a successful opening reception on January 1. The gallery was filled with visitors - of any age - all evening long.

This exhibition is the brain child of Pat Berrett, a well-known Albuquerque photographer. He invited fifteen photographers to take pictures of professional model Stephanie Ann. The resulting images range from the classic nude to those dealing with gender and identity to scenes fresh out of “The Lord of the Rings.”

Thank you everybody for coming to our shows, and thanks to the many volunteers from New Grounds and Matrix who helped to make this another successful evening! If you missed the reception, the show runs until January 30, and the gallery is open Wednesdays through Sundays from 9 AM to 6 PM, and Tuesdays from 10 AM to 4 PM.
