Both the art site itself and the new in-town gallery are part of this New Mexico-based non-profit's mission to promote environmental awareness though a sustained dialogue about art created on the land and for the land via off-the-grid, immersive residencies. You can read about my transformative 2006 residency at THE LAND/an art site on Landviews.org. Stay tuned for the upcoming 'collaborative' exhibit, Site Unseen, during Fall 2008.
