In Memoriam—Every person who knew Reggie Gammon seems to have a kind word for him. He was a fixture on the art scene here in Albuquerque, maintaining a studio at the Harwood Art Center for years, creating a body of artistic work immersed in music and social justice.

Although Gammon passed away a couple years ago, he hasn't been forgotten. The Reggie Gammon Memorial Award has been created to honor his memory and “support artists working in printmaking, painting and jazz” by providing funds for supplies, classes and exhibits.

The Harwood has just started accepting applications from printmakers. You can pick up forms at 1114 Seventh Street NW, Albuquerque, N.M. 87102, or just send a SASE to that address. Deadline is March 31. For details, call the Harwood at 242-6367.

The Jonson is located at 1909 Las Lomas NE. 277-4967,
