Ever wonder what members of the Dona Ana Arts Council think about art? While not all of us are artist (although we can boast that many of us are), we all share a steadfast appreciation and understanding that the arts are essential to developing our local community and culture. Art connects us, inspires us, and gives our children better tools to learn and change the world around us.

The arts enliven the soul and enrich our lives.

The Arts in Las Cruces are an added piece to the culture and heritage of our great community.

I am helping to establish the Center for Spiritual Living in the Heart of Las Cruces as the newest addition to the First Friday Art Ramble in Downtown Las Cruces.

Our first show was August 2019.

We have a new artist scheduled on a monthly lineup with several local artist for the community to enjoy.

Looking forward to working with and meeting other Artists in our great community.

"Art speaks to ALL"
