The exhibition showcased the 12 selected artists of Southwest Contemporary Magazine's 4th annual call for artists.  This year’s call, which gathered more than 500 entries, was juried by Louis Grachos, executive director of SITE Santa Fe, and Marisa Sage, director and head curator of the New Mexico State University Art Museum in Las Cruces.

Through this program, Southwest Contemporary Magazine  champions the most compelling, vibrant contemporary art being made in New Mexico in a wide range of media, such as painting, sculpture, printmaking, fiber arts, photography, mixed media, video, installation work, and more.
