Runs through 03/29/2020.

Jonathan Reeve Price presents an exhibit of digitally altered images of Rio Grande. One series of images features the San Antonio Oxbow located just south of the Rio Grande. They show the value of this precious urban-wildlife interface that is under threat from development. Another series of images follows the Rio Grande from El Paso to the Gulf of Mexico, what the artist calls “The Liquid Border.” “These images contrast the beautiful curves of the river, seen from space, with the sharp dangers that migrant face when trying to trek across the river, and through the brutal landscape on the American side.” The exhibit runs through March 29, 2020. See www.cabq.gov/openspace for more information or call 897-8831.

We write a lot about the US/Mexico border in this newspaper. From politicians’ views, to the plight of migrants, to the perspective of artists, the issues involved are fluid and require a great deal of ink to be understood. From the perspective of the artist Jonathan Reeve Price, the Rio Grande is “The Liquid Border.” His mixed-media exhibit The Rio Grande: Wetlands/Borderlands opens Saturday, Feb. 29 at Open Space Visitor Center (6500 Coors Blvd. NW) with a reception from 2pm to 4pm. For more information about this free, all-ages event, see cabq.gov.
