We had a meeting this morning (8/28). Just in case we forget the co-op part of Amapola artists’ co-op Gallery, we get together 5 or 6 times a year, when we HAVE to cooperate. Every three months everyone’s display space shifts so each of us gets a chance at the “best” spots. Since we began in 1980 the elected board has learned to conduct business on curating days. Gathering forty disparate artists bears a shocking resemblance to herding cats. Every advantage helps.
So–a meeting this morning to vote in 3 new permanent members off our list of Guests–Catalina Salinas, Matthew Snyder and Pam Troutman. Come check ’em out!–make some business decisions, move our work and restock.
This roiling mass o’ cats produces the rich and varied array of art and fine crafts that our visitors find so appealing. It’s like your personal arts and crafts fair but with no entry fee! And while you won’t meet all 40 of us, you will meet at least two every time you visit. Make the Amapola experience a habit and you can collect us all–each one better than the last.
Amapola Gallery is a repeatable treat which is neither illegal, immoral nor fattening. Cooperate with us and enjoy the Amapola experience.
Amapola Gallery, on the Plaza in historic Romero House in Old Town, Albuquerque. Open daily 10 to 5 at 205 Romero N.W. (505) 242-4311 or amapolagallery.com.
