Starting Friday, May 3, the Branigan Cultural Center presents The Art of Community: Visual Sonnets by Bruce Barton. The exhibition concludes on June 1. A reception takes place at the Branigan Cultural Center from 5:00pm to 7:00pm on Friday, May 3, during the monthly Ramble.
An interesting aspect of The Art of Community: Visual Sonnets is that humans are absent. Mr. Barton presents a world devoid of ‘us’ making his works even more atypical in what he refers to as in an ‘ordinary’ way. In addition, he avoids using color. He says, “People get arty about it – Oh, that’s beautiful color.’ I want them to see honestly what it is they’re looking at.”
The Branigan Cultural Center is located at Las Cruces at 501 North Main Street. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday from 9a.m. to 4:30p.m. For more information, contact the Branigan Cultural Center at (575) 541-2154 or visit the Center’s website at las-cruces.org/museums.
