North Fourth Art Center Art Exhibit


September 26 – November 10, 2014

N4th Gallery
4904 4th Street NW, Albq NM 87107

Closing Reception
November 7, 2014,
Friday, 5-7pm

N4th Gallery is pleased to present an exhibit of artwork by artist-teachers, administrative staff and volunteers of North Fourth Art Center. The exhibit runs September 26, through November 10, 2014, with a reception for the artists from 5pm to 7pm on Friday, October 3, 2014, during the first Friday ARTSCrawl.

in•struct provides a glimpse into the artistic inspirations and working methods of the talented people who form the backbone of an organization that has served Albuquerque’s arts and disability community for over 30 years. The exhibition is an artful mix of 2D and 3D work in a surprisingly wide range of media—from the fabric art forms of an “interactive” sculpture, an embroidered “painting” and a woven wall hanging, to prints produced using woodcut, monotype and intaglio techniques. The exhibit also includes oil, acrylic and watercolor paintings, photography and works in ceramics, colored pencil and mixed media.

In an interesting role reversal related to the exhibit’s title, in•struct was curated by Jessica Pinto and Phillip With, students in VSA’s Exploratory Arts and Day Arts programs. These core programs for adults with disabilities at the North Fourth Art Center provide education and training in the visual, performing and literary arts, performance and exhibition opportunities in N4th Theater & Gallery, and promotion of the artists’ works in the community. For more information or to arrange a tour of North Fourth Art Center call (505) 345-2872.

N4th Gallery hours are Monday through Friday, 10am to 4pm, during performances in N4th Theater, and by appointment (505-345-2140).
