Possibilities from Afar at Questa Public Library

The newly renovated Questa Public Library is proud to display some of New Mexico’s favorite artists in a Spring show entitled Possibilities from Afar! Join us to look at the artworks that capture unique feelings and emotions, and join the opening reception on April 2 from 1 – 4 pm. The show will be up through the end of June.

This show will feature works by professional artists from Taos to Santa Fe and as far south as Albuquerque. Their work ranges from complete abstraction to realistic representation and presents a variety of media.

The 2-D artists are: Ricky Pass, Abby Salsbury, Alice Webb, Merrimon Kennedy, Risa Taylor, and Paul Murray. The show will also feature 3-D work by artists: Taos ceramic artist Sarah Newberry and book artist Gail Murray.

While you’re at the library, make sure to check out the textile display by local quilters and other fiber artists.
