Janie Gonzales, of Vida Art Connections, is throwing Zimmer, an art exhibition, at her Rio Grande Estates home Saturday, Oct. 9 and Sunday, Oct. 10 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and by appointment after that.
Gonzales said the invitational art exhibition is in honor of Lis Zimmer, a former Albuquerque resident and community activist, who died this spring from breast cancer. A percentage of proceeds from this event will be donated to the New Mexico Cancer Center.
Vida Art Connections, formerly known as Vida Art Exhibitions tries to place high quality fine art in non-traditional venues for the mutual benefit of the viewer, the hosting organization, and the artists involved, according to Gonzales.
Gonzales set the event up to coincide with the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta.
Marian Berg, Travis Bruce Black, Susan Brown, Magda Rea Burger, Anna Carillo, Kim Eagle, Tina Garcia, Estevan Gonzales, Janie Perry Gonzales, Sydney Johnson, Linda Laitner, Margie Lucena, Cecelia McRoberts, Norma Mitnick, Andrea Ponzini, Holly Roberts, Todd Tibbals, Bob Wilson and Teal Wilson are participating at the event.
