As you may remember, our region invited the New Mexico region to join us in creating pieces for Under the Western Sun.
In return, the New Mexico region has now invited our members to enter their upcoming show titled Life Along the Rio Grande.
This is a great opportunity to have your work shown in three New Mexico venues, with the possibility of more to come!
Here is the call:
