Environs of the San Luis Valley

Adams State College Community Partnerships is hosting an exhibit featuring four women artists from throughout the San Luis Valley: Jeannie Norwood, Linda Relyea, Evelyn Sprouse Rowe, and Annette Troncoso. These artists provide different perspectives on the theme of "location" that provide interest and variety to the overall feel of this exhibit. This exhibit includes both paintings and photographs of scenes from the valley.

Rowe explains that "As an artist, I feel like I have captured a moment in time and a place to describe it." Relyea adds a different view expressing her "attempt to capture the desolation, loneliness and beauty of abandoned dwellings." Delving deeper still, Norwood comments on location being "not just a physical location that exists on a map, but a new perception of that locale presented with a changing complexity that reveals different ways of looking at and seeing things." Troncoso adds yet another angle including "a sense of the people -- la gente" in a certain time and place, giving life to the location.

Come enjoy the many views of the places we call home through the eyes of four women artists. The "Location, Location, Location" exhibit will run from October 3 through the 28. The gallery is open 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. ASC Community Partnerships is located on the corner of Edgemont Blvd. and Main Street in Alamosa, Colo. Join the artists from 4 p.m. until 6 p.m. Friday, Oct. 14 for an opening reception. Call ASC Community Partnerships at 719-587-7869 with questions.
