Hearts, cards, jewelry, stuffed animals, candy and a night out are all some of the usual Valentine’s Day gift ideas for hopeless romantics, but this year, a trio of Española artists are offering a different type of gift. The gift of art.
Nikki Bustos, Cruz Lopez and Toby Morfin collaborated to put together “The Art of Love,” a show featuring art pieces devoted to the theme of love. The show opens from 6-9 p.m. Feb. 11, at the Bond House Museum in Española, just in time for Valentine’s Day.
Lopez and Morfin are no strangers to doing shows together — in fact, they put on a Dia de Los Muertos show that ran for three days last fall at Northern New Mexico College.
They said that show was so successful that they began planning “The Art of Love” show almost immediately after “Muertos” ended.
“The Art of Love” show however, is different because Bustos has been brought into the fold. The duo has known Bustos for several years and Lopez said she’s part of a circle of artists that gets together frequently to work on their art.
“We get together about five times a month,” Bustos said, “but Cruz and Toby get together as much as they can.”
