DECEMBER 2022: The Giving Season

The first weekend of December is full of art shows and many of them are fundraising opportunities for community organizations. Each year I donate a piece of art to the Harwood Art Center’s 12×12 Exhibit and to the Endorphorin Power Company’s Annual Art Party. This year I’m also giving my subscribers to this newsletter and followers on social nedia a 22% off coupon on original art through my website.

PROTEST: See Something, Say Someting

Fusion Theater, 708 1st St NW, Albuquerque, NM 87102

Part of the Two Moons exhibit series curated by artist Martin Terry, this contemporary exhibition will focus on a select group of artists whose works speak to a social consciousness. Included are fiber arts, sculpture, painting, graphite, mixed media, written word, video, song, and other new and innovative means of communicating social commentary. Work in a wide range of styles matches the breadth of subjects addressed, including racism, sexism, economic inequality, climate change, violence, political upheaval, war, disease, and hatred. Each piece in this exhibit reflects the artists’ unique perspectives (SEE something) on the society around them, holding art up as a mirror (SAY something) to us all, in the hope that we will DO something.

Stay healthy and safe!
