UNM Law School Art Gallery Launches Faculty and Friends Art Extravaganza Reception on September 16, 2014


The UNM Law School Not-for-Profit Art Gallery launches the Faculty and Friends Art Extravaganza with an opening reception on Tuesday, September 16, 2014 from 5-6:30 pm in the Forum at the Law School, located at 1117 Stanford NE. Free parking is available in the Law School parking lot after 4:00 p.m.

The Art Gallery’s largest show ever features 15 artists displaying 38 works ranging from $150 to $3,000. Included are four rain paintings by Sibylle Szaggars Redford, the wife of actor/director Robert Redford, who exhibits her work globally. Although Szaggars Redford cannot attend the opening reception, her business partner will speak about her work at the reception, and she has agreed to have lunch with the purchasers of her work in Santa Fe at a later date.

The show includes paintings and photographs from four UNM Law School faculty members (Professors Bergman, Burr, Homer, and Rahn), three current staff members (Robert Flinkman, Cindy Nee, and Tamara Williams), one retired staff member (Dan Noyes), relatives of faculty, staff, and alumni (Sandra Allen, Jan Attencio, Vera Neel, Rachel Rankin, and Robert Weber), and friends of the law school (Jonathan Miller and Sybille Szaggers Redford).

The opening reception will feature a shrimp buffet, wine selection and non-alcoholic beverages. Johnny Alston, a Native American flutist, will play his free form music.

Bookworks will be selling the work of faculty members at this event and has agreed to donate 10% of their sales to the Law School’s Art in the Classroom Initiative. Authors Alfred Mathewson, Jenny Moore, Nathalie Martin, and Sherri Burr, along with novelist-photographer Jonathan Miller, will be on hand to say a few words about their books and sign them.
