The dancer is the window. The Dancer is the view. The dancer tells a story deep as you.

VSA AmeriCorps program offers a transition that allows members to use their talents in socially productive ways before moving onto their careers. While this year of service is temporary, VSA AmeriCorps provides the freedom to create and innovate.

Transitions include works by all nineteen VSA AmeriCorps members, revealing both their physical and personal migrations. Ten of these members have transplanted from the following states- CA, CT, IL, IN, MI, NC, NJ, and OH. As a group, they currently live and work in New Mexico, an important stepping stone in their careers as artists. Multimedia works on exhibit are by artists Lindsey Brenner, Sonya Briones-Parks, Susanna Derby, Jonathan Parks, Caitlin Schrage, Maggie Simon, Anna Whitacre, Drew Blanton, Grace Chacon, Rosie Leaks, Phillip Longley, Lydia Peterson and Stephanie Trujillo.

Exhibit runs April 25 – July 3, 2011

 

VSA Day Artists were inspired to enter quilts in the By George! Quilt Exhibition from February 4 – February 28, 2011 in the Branigan Cultural Center in Las Cruces. The President’s Challenge theme was for quilters to incorporate  the use of George Mendoza’s fabrics. Eight quilts were entered, six of which are on display in N4th Gallery. Exhibiting quilters include Maya Anaya, Cari-Lynn Carlston, Christina Caraveo, Michelle Eckles, Lena Han and Rosie Leaks. Two additional quilts have been selected to tour nationally and include one by Phyllis Herrera and another by Linda Plageman, which was completed by her teachers and dedicated to her memory

N4th Gallery hosted Mendoza’s paintings and quilt fabric in the exhibit George Mendoza: Wise Tree Collection from March - April 2010. Mr. Mendoza, now a Las Cruces resident, was a promising high-school athlete when a degenerative eye disorder caused legal blindness. Mr. Mendoza’s talents remained intact as he became a world-class runner, a motivational speaker and a full time artist. His colorful art has become a 100-percent cotton fabric collection that debuted at the International Quilt market in October 2009.
