This Red Truck #1 is the photography of Guest Member Artist Joy Kelley at Amapola Gallery Albuquerque.

Join us in welcoming Joy Kelley to the diverse gang of Amapola Gallery photographers.Farmgirl Joy once raised and raced Thoroughbred horses, at one time owning twenty -two. She taught English at the federal juvenile prison in Santa Fe for four years.

The boots and flowers photography is from Guest member artist Joy Kelley at Amapola Gallery Albuquerque.

Intrigued by the Native Americans among her students, she then moved to the Navajo Big Rez in Arizona, where she taught high school English and photography for five years. Joy ‘s photographs of race horses illustrated an article published in New Mexico Magazine, but “I shoot everything! ” she says — landscapes, adobe buildings, old trucks and ancient cowboy boots.

This Image of Native American Dancers is from Guest Member Artist Joy Kelley at Amapola Gallery Albuquerque.

Her images of dancers at The Gathering of Nations Powwow in Albuquerque will amaze you. Joy says, modestly, “I like to catch a memory. ” Come welcome her, revel in her photos and make a memory of your own!

After a lifetime batting words around like shuttlecocks in an endless game of badminton, it is a pleasure to use them to promote Old Town and my fellow artists at Amapola Gallery. –Kristin Parrott, carver, painter and acorn stuffer
