OUR ART GALLERY
Diane Cutter is an artist/printmaker living in the village of Corrales. As the result of a much-traveled life, both as a child and later as a Foreign Service spouse, she has found inspiration everywhere, from the tropics and the Middle East to the American Southwest and from the mundane to the exotic.
Working in several mediums (printmaking, pastels, watercolor, oils), "recently my main concentration has been scratchboard. I love the challenge of working monochromatically, breathing life into a black board through thousands of scratches, to convey an image or idea. Because I tend to work more loosely with my woodcuts and paintings, scratchboard has brought me back to my earlier love of detailed drawing."
Cutter's work is in private collections on five continents. Numerous of her relief prints are housed in the permanent Baren collection at the Spencer Museum at the University of Kansas (Lawrence) and the Art Museum at the University of Kentucky (Lexington).
Urey is a photographer also living in the village of Corrales. He's always had a love for landscape and nature photography. After he retired he started taking his photography more seriously. He joined a camera club and started entering photography contests. According to Urey he did surprisingly well and in 2003, helped start a co-op, the Albuquerque Photographers Gallery in Old Town.
"I capture the spirit of a place in my art, finding inspiration in my surroundings as well as my memories of place. I intend to continue to explore sense of place with future creative projects. As a resident of New Mexico, I have been intrigued with the local American Southwestern cultures and the area’s beautiful light, architecture, and nature. "
Please join us for an opening reception Sunday, October 7th from 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm. The artists will be providing brief talks about their work, and providing demonstrations. Smaller pieces of art will be for sale during the reception.
We are pleased to support area artists with exhibition and sales opportunities. If you are seeking a beautiful watercolor, striking abstract, or stunning photograph, the Arts Center will likely have it. We change our shows about every two months, and host receptions for the artists on the first Sunday of the month. Members enjoy a 10% off all gallery purchases.

Many of our artists are members of the Corrales Society of Artists, but all artists are welcomed to inquire about showing their art in the gallery. Contact Caryl Trotter, Executive Director for CAC for more information.
