Besides being open for First Friday June 1st (stop in and and see the newly opened Time Pieces 5-8pm) there are quite a few other great exhibitions that we suggest you make your way to while you're out and about...
UNM's Raymond Jonson Gallery (located in the UNM Art Museum) Be sure and check out the Contemporary Art Society Prize Show (5-7pm) featuring Xuan Chen (1st prize), Kate Carr (2nd prize), Cedra Wood (3rd prize; we did a studio vist with her back in April for New Mexico Showcase) and Heidi Pollard (4th prize). The first annual CAS Prize was juried by Dave Hickey, Libby Lumpkin of the Department of Art & Art History, and Luanne McKinnon, Director of the UNM Art Museum.

Right across the street from UNM, Tamarind Institute will be opening of Afro: Black Identity in America and Brazil, a group exhibition highlighting work by three Afro Brazilian artists and three African American artists who have been invited to create lithographs exploring the complexities of racial identity in Brazil and the United States. The exhibition will showcase work by Brazilian artists Rosana Paulino, Tiago Gualberto, and Sidnei Amaral along with American artists Alison Saar, Willie Cole, and Toyin Odutula. You'll have to catch this one before 5pm on Friday or during the rest of the week (Monday-Friday 9-5) because they're opting for a closing reception in lieu of the normal opening reception (August 24 5-7pm)
