Louise Deroualle uses ceramic materials to create formal abstractions that reveal different physical, experiential and emotional facets of herself. Her work is influenced by the cultural experiences to which she has been exposed—from her upbringing in Brazil to her studies and residence in the United States—and the way those interactions build her identity. The artist will give a lecture about her work at 5:30 pm and an opening reception will follow from 6 to 7 pm. The exhibition runs through June 24, 2018, and is free and open to the public.

With support from a grant by the New Mexico Humanities Council, the Museum is putting together a lecture series this summer in coordination with the exhibition Magical & Real: Henriette Wyeth & Peter Hurd, A Retrospective. Topics to be explored include how the exhibition came together, biographies of the artists, an examination of their work and influences, the importance of place to the artists, as well as Wyeth’s artistic family. The exhibition combined with the lecture series, will connect audiences more closely with this significant collection. Dates and further details about the series will be available in May.
