Art members show off their best

-A A +A
By The Staff

Friday the Art Center at Fuller Lodge celebrates the Members’ Best exhibit with an opening reception from 5-7 p.m. From crafts to fine arts, from whimsical to serious, Members’ Best is a bold testament to the wealth of artistic talent residing in the community.

Member’s Best represents 48 ACFL members, out of the ACFL’s membership of 400. The criteria for submission required only that the artist be a current, dues-paying member of the Art Center at Fuller Lodge, so the subjects are as wide-ranging as the creativity of the artists. This becomes apparent before even entering the gallery; a small yellow tank sitting in the quadrangle outside the Gallery Entrance labels itself both as “school bus” and “AST-1.” This piece by Frank Morbillo is a radical departure from his elegant, formal and abstract work as represented in his fountain piece that graces the front of the Bradbury Museum on Central Avenue. The cryptic title, “AST-1 (Armored Student Transport – 1)” denotes reference to events such as ‘Columbine.’

The true definition of the word art, which comes from the Greek arte, means “making things excellently.” Members Best highlights the arte of artists and craftsmen of Los Alamos County and northern New Mexico.
