For the eighth year, the Albuquerque Art Business Association is honoring area artists who not only excel in the arts, but who have given back to their communites.

The awards ceremony and reception will be held at the Albuquerque Museum of Art & Hitory, September 6, 2015, From: 1-3:00 pm.

Simmons states, "I was a hand weaver from the early 1970's to the early 1990's, I have always been drawn to vessels. I began experimenting with papermaking in 1995 and found it to be an exciting and responsive medium. The papers used to construct these vessels are made primarily from native plant materials that I make from gathered organic vines and other materials. My process is focused on collaborating with the spirit of nature at its ebb by reconstructing these fibers into fresh forms."
