The name comes from Miranda Howe’s brother, Jeremy Howe, whose opening reception for his exhibit is on April 20 from 5 to 8 p.m.

“The name comes from an oil-rich strata layer in East New Mexico and West Texas,” Miranda Howe said. “That way I keep the connection to the history of the warehouse.”

Miranda Howe incorporated other pieces of history into the building. “There are items from Sears, a desk from Cobeans and Inkspot Printing, some doors come from the New Mexico Military Institute and the tables for the classes (art classes) came from the Roswell Independent School District’s science section,” she said.

The next day, April 21, at 10 a.m. the doors open for the official ribbon cutting. The gallery is a true art space as its name suggests.

Miranda Howe is planning to offer a creative gathering place for artists and those who love art. It will feature art classes for all ages, exhibition space and studios.
