Bright Rain Gallery calls Old Town its home, but the gallery owners' mission is to infuse the area's tradition with edgy and interesting beauty from local artists. Married couple Travis and Molly Black opened Bright Rain Gallery in November 2007, and the space features contemporary, Southwestern and Modern Art.

Travis Black’s paintings are featured in the first gallery with a rotating stable of guest artists featured in the second. What We Left Behind: New Work by David Polka opens on May 1, with a reception that’s part of Albuquerque First Friday ARTScrawl. Polka, a recent UNM graduate, was the recipient of the Best in Painting award at the 2008 Southwest Biennial. His paintings at Bright Rain exhibit focus on the notion of growing up.

Bright Rain Gallery is located at 206 1/2 San Felipe NW. For more Bright Rain artists and show information, visit brightraingallery.com or call 843-9176.
