The 12 x 12 Art Exhibition and Silent Auction is an annual event, held in October for one night only. It supports AMoA’s innovative art education programs and brings the community together to celebrate art and forge friendships. The artworks in the exhibition are sold via silent auction at a starting bid of $120. Fifty percent of the sale price goes towards educational programs at AMoA and fty percent goes to the artist. The generosity and support shown by artists and art collectors is vital to our museum and greatly appreciated by the Board of Trustees, AMoA Alliance, and AMoA Staff. Participation in this event enables AMoA to continue bringing rst-class art programming to area schools.
BURNING RING OF FIRE: 20 Years of Cast Iron Sculpture in Tucumcari, NM
October 26 – December 30, 2018
For the past twenty years, artists from across the United States have convened in the small town of Tucumcari, New Mexico to engage in a weeklong workshop making cast iron sculpture at Mesalands Community College (MCC). D’Jean Jawrunner, artist and MCC Foundry Director, began inviting artists to Tucumcari for an annual iron pour in 1999. The Mesalands Iron Pour is distinctive for its inclusivity, connecting a diverse group of artists across gender, age, and level of experience. This exhibition will include examples of at least 50 artworks created over 20 years of participation in the workshop, and will include works such as photographs, prints, and installations representing the artistic extensions of the medium. Video documentation of an Iron Pour in action will be included as a media component. Initial plans are being discussed for an on-site Iron Pour open to the public to view the process in action.
