Art Exhibit: VERDE: The Color of Life

February 29 - April 30

Creatures – Judith Roderick

According to Kermit, “It’s not easy being green.” But while it’s hard to argue with the world’s most famous frog, his plaint offered a welcome challenge to artists whose work appears in “Verde: The Color of Life,” the March/ April exhibition at the Placitas Community Library (PCL). The exhibit features nearly twenty local ceramicists, photographers, quilters and jewelers responding to “green” as both color and concept.

Cottonwood Leaves – Beth Larsen

Coordinated by Placitas resident Linda Hughes, co-chair of the PCL’s Art Committee, this exhibit considers green as a symbol of nature, renewal, freshness and our need to heal and save the environment as well as its association with money, jealousy and envy. Carol Allen, Patti Farley, Pea S. Garr, Tricia George, Annie Gross, L. Heath, Beth Larsen, Lesley Long, Lavon Maestas, Pamela Neas, Linda Nisenbaum, Erica Wendel-Oglesby, Stephen Palmer, Susan Pine, Judith Roderick, Margaret Shannon, Pam Troutman, and Fehrunissa Willett use a plethora of techniques to explore the idea of “green.”

The exhibition runs from February 29 through April 30 with a public reception on Friday, March 13. Expect green edibles (among others) and an opportunity to meet the artists and be among the first to inspect oil, acrylic and watercolor paintings, cyanotype botanicals, ceramic objects, mosaics, photographs, jewelry, solar lights, and quilts. A portion of each sale benefits the Placitas Community Library.
