“Home: Thinking Inside and Outside the Box”

Online exhibition opens today at LEAPsite.org

For the past couple of months we’ve flown an open call for participation in the NeoRio online exhibition. Nearly thirty submissions have been received from practicing artists as well as from groups of kids, teens, Questa Junior and Senior High School students, parents, grandparents, teachers, graphic designers, entrepreneurs, coaches, outdoor enthusiasts, an herbalist, a medical practitioner, a salon owner and a librarian.

All participants in the online exhibition were provided with a common starting point: a 7x7x7” wooden box with a removable lid, made specially for this project, as well as the prompts, “What does home mean to you? Think inside and outside the box!” Each participant was also asked to submit a short audio reflection or story. The creations we’ve received are diverse, heartfelt and wonderful! The online exhibition and Zoom Roundtables promise an interesting journey through people’s varied creativity, experiences and insights on home during this trying and unique time.

Participating artists include Amy Stroh, Anne-Marie Emanuelli, Ashton McKenney, Carol Schrader, Cathy Hope, Connie Long, Crystal and Ariessa Medina, Danielle Lacome, David Vargo, Diane de Fremery, Emelina Medina, Field Institute of Taos 2nd and 3rd Grade after school group, Field Institute of Taos Nature Art Group, Geneviève de Vellis, Gillian McCombs, Jaydyn Cintas, Jennifer Vialpando, Joshlyn Medina, Joy Purcell, Kaitlin Bryson, Lee Lee and Thatcher Gray, Malia Reeves, Martha Shepp, Mary Hanrahan, Ruby Sofrae, Ricky Pass, Robbie Steinbach and Sarah Parker.
