Happy 2 year anniversary to us!
As of March 2013, these art walks have been running monthly for 2 full years. Come help us celebrate!
For our March Meetup we will still meet at the same time and place, then... caravan down to the Ranger Station and set up an art show, prior to heading out for the walk. So, please bring any art, or photography that you would like to show. I apologize, but due to budget cuts, I can not provide any matting or framing. Please bring your work in the condition that you would like it hung. The show should hang for a few months, and then all items will be returned when you come to the art walk in June!
We will meet at the North West New Mexico Visitor Center at 9:00 am. Then we will caravan to a different place within the National Conservation Area each Sunday, where all artistic minded folks can set up their easels, or pull out their cameras and let nature inspire. There can be as little or as much walking involved as you wish. There might be artistic inspiration right in the parking area. Or you can join Ranger Jenn on a short walk for a stunning view. Total round trip mileage each Sunday should not be more than about 1 and 1/2 miles. It's more about being outside getting creative, than about hard core hiking.
Bring your own art supplies: paint, canvas, pencils, cameras, or sketch books. We plan to finish by noon or 1 depending on weather and the feelings of the group. Artists are encouraged to linger if they wish.
Dress for changing weather, layered clothing, closed toe shoes, hat, sunscreen, water, and snacks.
Please contact me at the BLM office[masked] if you would like more details. or on the day of the walk, call the Northwest New Mexico Visitor Center at[masked] If you can't attend, but would like photos hung in the show, you can e-mail them to me at [masked] Hope you can join us! :)
