NM Living Local Interview

It’s one of the largest visual art events the state has to offer. The 2019 Albuquerque Art Showcase will highlight 125 of the best artists in the Land of Enchantment whose work will be on full display.

Galleries, guilds and hundreds of artists will come together to showcase their creative and diverse talents. The art show begins on August 15 with a gala preview and runs through August 19, ending with a Business Exchange Luncheon with Lawrence Rael as a keynote speaker.

The gala preview night will feature four inspiring speakers, music by Le Chat Lunatique and a delicious array of regionally authentic cuisine.

The designated beneficiary this year is the Children’s Cancer Fund of New Mexico. Gala night tickets are on sale and can be obtained online at abqartshowcase.orgholdmyticket.com or visit Sumner and Dene Art Gallery downtown at 517 Central Ave, northwest.
