The Framemaker proudly presents APSU faculty member and Professor Emeritus Bruce Childs as part of Clarksville’s First Thursday Art Walk on Thursday, October 6, 2011. An opening reception will be held from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. The exhibit, titled “Urban Open Spaces,” will remain on display at the Framemaker throughout the month of October during normal business hours (Mon. through Fri. 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.).
Childs states, “The idea behind Urban Open Spaces is to give gallery audiences an opportunity to see open spaces of high desert — mountains and the Rio Grande Rift — as pockets of possible refuge for the urban dweller and visitor, whose eyes are conditioned by the built environment.”
In addition to The Framemaker gallery show, Bruce Childs will be simultaneously featured in a group exhibition in the APSU Downtown Gallery. According the the artist, “The Downtown Gallery show is the result of having more in-depth conversations with environmentally sensitized residents of Albuquerque. More specifically, I have been concentrating my eye on the magical west mesa landscape, the Rio Grande Rift and Escarpment.”
The Framemaker is located at the corner of North Second Street and Georgia Avenue, across from The Clarksville Academy.
