Event Description

Featuring two gallery exhibitions, open studios, collaborative art making projects and activities for all ages, Encompass is both a reflection of, and an offering to our community. 

Uncharted Territory
Featuring Swoon, Erin Currier, Ann Dunbar, Leigh Ann Langwell, Heidi Pollard, Holly Roberts, Brittany Sundheim and Myriam Tapp, Uncharted Territory highlights women artists investigating how they fit in, respond to and affect change in the world around them -- and demonstrating a certain refined optimism in the process. Presented as part of Women & Creativity. 

Escuela del Sol Elementary students share a transformative body of work. Shifting common, imagined and sometimes ordinary images and text affects the viewer's perception of the work and the gallery environment. Visitors are invited to participate in this interactive exhibition.

Open Studios
Since 1991, Harwood Art Center has provided creative workspaces, exhibition opportunities and professional development programs to local artists. Our 45 Harwood Studio Artists invite you to visit them (and in some studios, guest artists) and view their beautiful wares.

Women & Creativity
An annual celebration coordinated by National Hispanic Cultural Center and Harwood Art Center, Women & Creativity works in collaboration with over 35 local and regional partners and features over 90 events in a wide array of creative disciplines. Read the full calendar >

Site Specific Installation
As part of both Encompass and Women & Creativity, New Mexico artist Stephanie Lerma has crocheted a land art doily out of recycled plastic bags for Harwood's front yard. Escuela del Sol students will "seed bomb" the negative spaces in the doily, allowing plants to grow up - creating a living relief of the pattern. 

The Supper Truck, Conchita’s Creations and Maine Street Lobster will be on hand with delicious dinner options.

The evening will be accompanied by the sweet musical stylings of duo Sage and Jared’s Happy Gland Band.

Basement Films stages a filmic coup d'etat, nodding to the psychedelic light shows of the 1960s.

Collaborate & Interact
Pass It On: An interactive exhibition created by you, live the night of Encompass. Led by guest artist Spring Griffin.

Take Art: Pick your props and have your photograph taken in the Amsterdam Ham Photo Booth! $7 each.

Wear Art: Bring or buy a t-shirt to be silk screened by James Black of 111 Media Collective with the original artwork of Escuela del Sol elementary students. $10 BYOT / $15 new T 

Many thanks fo our generous sponsoring partners: 
The FUNd of Albuquerque Community Foundation, McCune Charitable Foundation, New Mexico Arts and National Endowment for the Arts, City of Albuquerque and Urban Enhancement Trust Fund.
