Artist Reception: "Portals of the Heart and Mind," 5-7 pm, as part of Downtown ArtRamble.
"Portals of the Heart and Mind" is the featured visual art exhibit in the El Paso Electric Gallery for the month of October. In Portals, a group of women artists explore and give thanks to the experiences of their life’s journey and the many transitions that have enriched their art and how they live their lives. The collective work is done in oil, acrylic, pastel, mixed media, clay and fiber.
This exhibit will have an opening reception hosted by the Arts Council with the artists in attendance. The opening reception is in conjunction with the Downtown ArtRamble on the first Friday evening of each month.
