In “Passages” artists in Mosaic New Mexico interpret, depict, and proclaim through their work what the Albuquerque part of our riverine world witnesses and has witnessed over time. The inherent vibrancy of mosaics coupled with the passion and the unexpected vision of the artists takes gallery visitors to a moment of wonder, a sharp intake of the breath, and the realization that they now see our Rio Grande in a new light. The beauty and complexity of the mosaic medium well reflects the beauty of nature and can lead to a deeper respect for the natural world. To help promote environmental conservation, artists participating in “Passages” were encouraged to use recycled materials in the works. The exhibit runs through May 12, 2019.
