DESCRIPTION

516 ARTS announces New Mexico Showcase, a juried exhibition of New Mexico artists in celebration of our fifth anniversary. Our 2012 exhibitions schedule kicks off with this showcase of emerging and established artists from across the state. Historically, there have been several juried exhibitions in Albuquerque and Santa Fe, spanning local to regional in scope, but area museums have taken a hiatus from them. 516 ARTS opened five years ago with an invitational exhibition of New Mexico artists, and now will revisit this subject through a juried process to reach a diverse selection of new work.

We are pleased to welcome guest juror Peter Frank, an acclaimed curator and art critic based in Los Angeles. Mr. Frank is currently Associate Editor of Fabrik magazine and art critic for The Huffington Post. He has served as Senior Curator at the Riverside Art Museum in California, as Editor of THEmagazine Los Angeles and Visions Art Quarterly, and as critic for Angeleno magazine and the L.A. Weekly. He is originally from New York, where he wrote art criticism for The Village Voice and The SoHo Weekly News. He contributes articles to numerous publications and has organized many exhibitions, including for the Riverside Art Museum, Independent Curators Inc., New York's Alternative Museum; Otis/Parsons Art Institute in Los Angeles and the Guggenheim Museum, among others. Frank has taught at Pratt Institute, Columbia University's School of the Arts, Tyler School of Art, University of California Los Angeles, Laguna College of Art and Design and other institutions.
