Working Albuquerque-area artists open their studios to the public.

For Public Selects, working Albuquerque-area artists will open their studios to the public on three consecutive Saturdays: March 7, 14, and 21. Visitors will vote for their favorites online, culminating in an exhibition at the Museum from June-October, 2015.

To make this most possible for studio visitors across the area, the Albuquerque region has been split into three geographical sections: North, Central, and South. Visitors must simply sign in at an artist studio and provide an email address to be eligible to vote.

The people speak

Lookie, it’s art: “Eyeglasses” by Kristin Diener

Meet local artists where the magic happens. For Public Selects: A Celebration of Albuquerque Artists, participating creators bare all by opening up their studios. After you visit, vote for your favorite artists to be included in an exhibition at the Albuquerque Museum (2000 Mountain NW) this summer. Although two open studio dates have already passed, you can catch the final event on March 21 from 10am to 4pm. On the roster are Thomas Christopher Haag, whose layered murals and paintings refer to ancient traditions and the spiritual world with, as he puts it, “just a hint of smart-ass,” and Kristin Diener, a metalsmith whose intricate assemblages fall somewhere between jewelry and sculpture.
