Roswell artist at New Mexico Museum of Art “Alcoves 2020”

Diane Marsh, former Roswell Artist-in-Resident member, who lives and works in Roswell, was chosen as exhibitioner at the New Mexico Museum of Art “Alcoves 2020,” which coincides with the symbiosis and opening of the St. Francis Auditorium and Alcoves No. 1.

This new Alcove No. 1 exhibit relates intrinsically to the original purpose of Saint Francis of Assisi who is known for attending to animals and birds. It is fitting that his original ethos of the physical and spiritual connection between human beings and the animals of land, sea and air are emphasized in the portraits of Marsh, which are currently on exhibit in Alcoves No. 1.
