Making an Impression


Two artists working at North Fourth Art Center are making impressive strides toward a goal of artists everywhere –recognition for their art.

Rudy Via is that rare breed of artist who enjoys promoting his work. He is an accomplished Career Artist at North Fourth Art Center and has been taking art classes since 2008. Last March, two of his acrylic paintings were selected for All About Art, a juried exhibition and art sale annually presented by Moss Rehab in Elkins Park, Pennsylvania.

All About Art focuses on work by artists with disabilities and is open to a wide range of media. The 2018 exhibition was on view from April 12, through May 30, with a link for online sales of the artwork through June 4. However, those interested in buying Rudy’s paintings in Pennsylvania will have to come to New Mexico, since both of his paintings in All About Art were quickly sold.

Sarah Wilson began developing as a Career Artist at North Fourth Art Center under teacher Tom Brejcha and and has been taking classes since 2011. In April, Sarah was one of five individuals with Down Syndrome and their parents selected to attend the Disability Policy Seminar in Washington DC. The trip was sponsored by The Arc Down Syndrome New Mexico Fund through the National Arc, advocates for the critical issues facing people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD).

Sarah brought along some of her bird paintings on her trip to Washington DC, and was able to present them to several legislators from New Mexico, including Senators Tom Udall and Martin Heinrich, and Representatives Michelle Lujan Grisham and Ben Ray Lujan. Sarah’s ability as an artist is in itself a powerful advocate for both New Mexico and the I/DD community.

A Reflection of Generosity

Delightful Donations
for BVD and ETC

A generous donation from the Michael and Laurie Naranjo Touched by Art Fund at the Santa Fe Community Foundation has made North Fourth Art Center’s resident companies Buen Viaje Dance and Equilibrium Theater very happy performers.

Thanks to extra effort on behalf of donors Michael and Laurie Naranjo, the companies were asked to determine what was needed most to help them prepare for the new N4th Season. For BVD it was materials and labor to make rolling rehearsal mirrors from several donated mirrors, and for ETC it was digital recorders for interviewing people as they develop characters for their new play.

Ordering the recorders was easy enough, but finding someone to work with used polymer mirrors of different sizes was a challenge. Fortunately a talented woodworker named Alan Overmier came to the rescue. Alan had created elegant stands for Michael Naranjo’s sculptures in his retrospective at N4th Gallery back in 2015.

The 2018 N4th Season was a great success and a first for both companies to combine their new work into one seamless performance entitled The Ability Project. Company members work all year to prepare for the annual season and generous donors like Michael and Laurie Naranjo make all that work all the more enjoyable.
