SURFACE: Emerging Artists of New Mexico is Harwood Art Center’s annual juried exhibition, professional development and endowed cash awards program for emerging artists currently living and working in New Mexico. SURFACE is dedicated to cultivating the creative and professional growth of artistic talents and to expanding their visibility and viability in our community.

This year’s SURFACE exhibition in Harwood’s Main Gallery features Kirsten Angerbauer, Evan J. Beck, Dante Betsch, CB Bryan, Jesse Dávila, Moira Garcia, Marianne Hall, Marlena Livingston, Mona Martinez Manzanares, Eric Romero and Keith Scott.

Ruby Troup received the SURFACE 2018 Harwood Art Center Solo Exhibition Award, presented annually for artistic excellence, originality of vision and dedication to practice; her exhibition, Point of Interest, will run concurrently in Harwood’s Front Gallery.

In her exhibition, Point of Interest, Troup creates symbolic landmarks as a kind of map, charting the last few years of her life in the high desert. Abstracted from symbols that have a common cultural connotation, these landmarks evoke a sense of a shared experience and invite viewers to consider what they have discovered in their own travels.
