Though Weyrich Gallery is a small space, it presents work intended to surpass limits. Weyrich's focus is harmony. The gallery shows handmade jewelry, photography, etchings, hand-painted silk and mixed media. The gallery also carries ceramics and specializes in Japanese-style porcelain.

Weyrich owners Valerie and Gary Tibbetts offer services beyond selling the exhibited art. The gallery doubles as an "Art of Living Center" and offers classes that promote harmony through art, including Feng Shui consultations, artwork color and placement workshops, and Japanese tea ceremonies.

Weyrich is also the only Albuquerque gallery to receive NICHE Magazine's Top Retailer of American Crafts award. This week, Weyrich opens a new exhibit as part of First First ARTScrawl. The exhibit, "Expressive & Aesthetic Ends," features the work of Kevin Crowe, Judith Duff, Gary Hootman and Dale Huffman and is open through May 29. Visit Weyrich Gallery at 2935-D Louisiana NE.
