The opening reception of my exhibit “Universe in Pieces” at the Fuller Lodge Art center was a delight. Friends drove up from Santa Fe and even Albuquerque (a 180-mile trip!) to celebrate with me. Many of the Original Collages were new even to fans who have seen my work in previous shows. The week leading up to the reception including a lot of preparation, but kicked off in a fun way: an interview on the Los Alamos community radio station KRSN 1420 AM/107.1 FM. The next day, I found out that my show had a great write up in the calendar of Santa Fe’s free weekly newspaper The Reporter (that’s like “The Reader” in Chicago). Then on Friday afternoon, I was included in a second interview – The Richard Eeds show on the Santa Fe radio Station KTRC 1260 AM/103.7 FM [a recording is available on their website]
I drove from the interview to Los Alamos for the reception which started at 5 pm – I was glad I arrived early because visitors started to filter in while I was plating up star-shaped cookies. The town was celebrating a “Night of Culture” - musical and visual events were happening throughout the Historic District, drawing in new guests.
I have been exhibiting my work at various shows at Fuller Lodge Art Center for a year and the community has become acquainted with some of my themes and techniques. However, they have never seen so many of my “outer space” collages. It was a thrill and the fulfillment of a dream to display this work in this community. The people of Los Alamos have been so receptive and supportive that I must include this town as one of my favorite places in this world.
For my part I know nothing with any certainty,
but the sight of the stars
makes me dream.

I will be visiting the Art Center a few times before “Universe in Pieces” closes on March 2. I hope that you can see the exhibit while visiting Los Alamos – but not on Sundays: The Art Center is closed on Sundays. I will be at the Railyard Artisans Market on offering my art for sale on February 10 and 17. On the final Sunday of the month, February 24, I will be in Albuquerque, helping to promote Poetry Out Loud at a poetry reading at Bookworks. I will be giving away FREE posters at that event, as well as selling giclee prints of “Hear the Echoes”.
