Photo New Mexico 2010 was a hit!

Photo NM 2010 captures a broad range of imagery

Now in our third year, Photo NM continues to attract the best of photography in New Mexico. This years’ juror, Andrew Connors, curator of art at the Albuquerque Museum of Art, had the difficult job of selecting only 21 images by 20 artists out of the 224 entries we received from 74 artists.

Here are a few of the artists in the show with some new and several familiar faces:

Melany Herrea, who also won our “People’s Choice” Award this year – congratulations!

Barry McCormick

Bruce Shortz

Dino Farfan

William Gruner

Karl Latino

Robert Goldstein

Thomas Leiblein

Robert Nugent

Tim Anderson

Andrew Connors says about this show:

This selection in many ways celebrates the classic elements and techniques of photography with only a few forays into digital manipulation or enhancement.

The best of artists allow us to see the world in a new way, and the best of photographers help us see and understand with greater complexity and with new perception. Those of us who are not art makers owe to them a debt of gratitude for enriching our visual experiences. Those who submit their work to a blind jury are doubly brave.

Thus a big “Thank you” to all who submitted work” and did not get in – we hope that you will try again next year. The call for entry will go out in January.

A big thank you also to Tanya, Pam and our intern Justin who helped with this show.

Justin, our intern, did a fabulous job keeping up with the ballots which were cast throughout the evening to determine the “People’s choice” award. It was a close call and Robert Goldstein, Karl Latino and William Gruner were neck to neck throughout the evening until Melany Herrera took the award home. The Juror’s Choice” award, went to Jeff Laird’s “1510 Wyoming NE.”

This show runs until July 31, and Andrew Connors will give a one hour gallery talk on Saturday, July 24 at 1 PM. Visit to see the entire show.
