Due to the pandemic GANM has suspended all in person events. There are many wonderful online happenings, for your convenience we have listed them here on our calendar.
A number of galleries are doing regular Zoom live tours of artist studios and showing artist's works through online video presentations. Most require an RSVP to get the Zoom link.
AACG FIRED UP: New Mexico’s own Lucy Lyon
AACG's FIRED UP series presents Inside the Studio: with Lucy Lyon on
Tuesday, October 20, at 2 p.m. Eastern time.
Join Lucy Lyon for a look inside her artist studio and learn about her
process and life. Working in cast glass, Lucy's sculpture centers
largely on the notion that despite the interaction we have in meeting
up with each other, each of us is essentially alone. That brings up a
bit of melancholy, but it also makes the individual unique and
therefore very important.
Lucy started working in glass because it is a very seductive material,
and she chose to focus on sculpting figures. What interests her most
is trying to convey the intellectual and emotional state of the
individuals in her pieces, relying on subtle gestures, a turn of the
head or twist of the hips, to express the figure’s state of mind.
This program is open to the public at the Zoom link below.
Register in advance for the Zoom event!
