ART
FROM COMMISSIONER MAGGIE HART STEBBINS:
Please join me for the next District 3 art show, “Walk With Me”, featuring paintings by Christian Gallegos. This show is the 26th in a series of exhibits showcasing the talent and creativity of District 3 artists.

Christian Gallegos is a contemporary abstract artist who was raised in Spanish Harlem in New York City, but now calls Albuquerque home. In his early twenties, Christian evolved from a graffiti artist into an oil painter, painting mostly abstract pieces and experimenting with surrealism.

Christian’s early graffiti work is apparent in his current paintings through his use of bold lines, shapes, colors, patterns and graphics. His experimentation with styles, themes and techniques; an improvisational, melody-like approach to painting; and a unique rooftop perspective allows Christian to “forget the subject, make intuitive connections and give expression to thoughts and feelings about himself and the world around him.”

Christian’s paintings have been on display in galleries in Albuquerque, Tucson and New York. You can see more of his work by visiting his website, http://www.christiangallegos.com/index.html.

Please join Christian and me at the Opening Reception on Friday, August 2nd, 5:00-6:30pm. My office is on the 10th Floor of One Civic Plaza, Suite 10111. When you arrive, look for the directional signs near entrances from the street level and the parking structure and throughout the building.

Please share this e-mail with your friends, colleagues, neighbors and association members. A RSVP is not necessary.

For more information, please call 505-468-7108 or email jhartley@bernco.gov.

Thank you for your continued support of our art shows and I look forward to seeing you on August 2nd!
