Exposed Women: Through Her Eyes opening reception

A photo will only tell you what was in front of the camera. Which is why this year's InSight Women's Photography Exhibit, In Her Eyes, running April 5 through 26 at Expo New Mexico (300 San Pedro NE) lets you experience the perspectives of over 60 women from all over the state. The camera may not lie, but it usually only tells half of the story. To hear the rest, swing by the exhibit's opening reception on Saturday, where you'll get your chance to push back the curtain and meet the women behind the cameras. You aren't allowed to actually crawl inside anyone's head and take a look around or anything, but enjoying refreshments while hobnobbing with the artists is just as good.
