|Enjoying the Image New Mexico 2015 exhibition|
On July 3, Matrix Fine Art was proud to host a First Friday opening reception for the Image New Mexico, 2015 exhibition, an annual photography event.
|This popular annual event always draws a great crowd!|
IMAGE New Mexico2015 is a juried photography exhibition organized by Tim Anderson and Patrick Berrett.
The Matrix Fine Art has enjoyed hosting the Image New Mexico exhibitions for several years now--and sadly 2015 marks the final installment. Pat Barrett and Tim Anderson are retiring the exhibition. We want to thank both Pat and Tim for all the hard work they have done for photographers in the past several years.
They are still hard at work lining up the 1x15 (1 Model, 15 Photographers) in December, opening here at Matrix Fine Art.
We had a great crowd and an excellent turnout and we thank you for supporting this legendary local event!
|The photo lineup included rich monochrome pieces...|
|...and luscious, full-color entries!|

|Viewers contemplate works closely|
Tim Anderson: Publisher, Red Dog News, Shadow & Light Magazine. Photographer.

Ann Pallesen: Gallery Director of the Photographic Center NW, a position she has held since 1996. She has created over 250 exhibitions with emerging and renowned artists. Ann has served as a juror for several exhibitions and competitions outside of Photo Center NW. She offers independent consultation to photographers who are editing their work and preparing for exhibitions.
Viewers also voted in real time for their favorite pieces during the opening. Winners received excellent prizes (and fame!)--though we agree all the works are fabulous.
