A Growing Art Communityby Ken Collins on 02/27/10
I attended the reception for the High Desert Fine Art Festival last night at San Juan College and was impressed. I was impressed by the quality of artists and their works, impressed by the diversity of artists, impressed by the number of exhibiting artists that traveled to Farmington from outside of the area, and impressed by the number of visitors who attended the reception.
The individual efforts of local artists and the organizations to which they belong are now beginning to blur into collaborative efforts. It will be the collaborative efforts that finally establish Farmington as the art center it is waiting to be.
And as a side note - I sold a painting at the reception last night even though I wasn't exhibiting in the show!
