Time to Head for the Art Show!
27 January 2007

"Green" is the title of the new art show at 516 Arts. This gallery is located at 516 Central SW and is open Tuesday-Saturday from 12-5 pm until January 28, 2007.

"Green" features 56 pieces by 23 artists in painting, sculpture, photograhy, and digital arts. This is the kick-off show for the newly renovated gallery.

Names of those who committed themselves to establishing this gallery and this show read like celestial shooting stars. Luisa Casso, leader of the Downtown Action Team, has been pleased at all who stepped up to help in this communitywide effort. The McCune Charitable Foundation of Santa Fe and the Albuquerque business community led by John Lewinger, a real estate broker, donated over half a million dollars for the purchase of the building and organizing the physical setting and operation of the gallery. Andrew John Cecil and Suzanne Sbarge planned the inaugural exhibit.

Come to the show, enjoy the works, and celebrate this new addition to Albuquerque's Downtown. You should note, too that there will be a gallery talk with artists and catalog essayist on January 20, 2007 at 2 pm and a poetry reading and closing reception on January 26, 2007 at 8 pm.
