Art Exhibit in Las Cruces 2016

"Rural Reflections"

For September, the Gallery at Big Picture is featuring Sue Nichols and her latest body of work "Rural Reflections" This exhibit provides a nostalgic glimpse of bucolic and domestic scenes derived from a life on her orchard ranch in the rural Southwest. Some paintings carried their history from the land while others depict the animals and plants that surround them in their daily lives. Nichols paintings give a nod to the nostalgic, being anchored by realism both pictorially and metaphysically.

Hours are Tuesday – Friday 10-5 and Saturday 9:30 - 1:30.
