Many thanks to ALL the artists that submitted their work for Radio-Active!  The show opened on May Day – Thursday 1 May 2014 – and continued through June 1st at Common Ground Gallery in beautiful downtown Silver City, New Mexico.  The exhibit was curated by Paula Geisler, former Director of WNMU’s Francis McCray Gallery and owner of Common Ground Gallery.


Elmo Baca of Santa Fe, NM was our awards juror.  He is a graduate of Yale University with a double major in Arts & Architecture.  Mr Baca was state director of Main Street from 1994 – 1999 and in 2007 he was part of the team that developed the New Mexico Arts & Cultural District program.

The slideshows will pause while you “mouseover” and display the artist and the name of the work or other comment.  As there are two slideshows, both will run simultaneously which may be distracting.  If so, alternately place the mouse over the one you wish to pause and the other will continue.
