“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness.” -Mark Twain

 “Peregrino” means “traveler” in Spanish. Fuller Lodge Art Center’s first juried exhibition of the 2020 season focuses on the journey. Whether a trip abroad to see famed landmarks close up,  a perspective altering journey of self-discovery or a pilgrim’s prayerful walk to a sacred place; the art of “Peregrino” challenges the odyssey. Oil and acrylic painting, mixed media, clay, wood, fiber art, jewelry and photography span the vast distances of media employed by over 35 regional artists and several out-of-state artists. 

The Peregrino exhibition will do some traveling once the show closes April 4 here in Los Alamos. Fuller Lodge Art Center Director, Ken Nebel, has arranged with a Chicago area art gallery to exhibit the art from Peregrino in the early summer. In turn, art exhibited there will travel to Los Alamos and be shown at Mesa Public Library’s upstairs gallery in July 2020.

Journey through the gallery this Friday, Mar. 6 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. for Peregrino’s Opening Reception and take in the sights at Portal Gallery’s “Black Mesa Majesty” as well. The shows run through April 4, 2020 at Fuller Lodge Art Center, 2132 Central Ave., Los Alamos. The regular hours at Fuller Lodge Art Center are Monday–Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
