In 2005 I had art and photography on exhibit in the Belen ART League Gallery and participated in some of their events.  In the fall I went into the Film Tech Training Program (FTTP) at Albuquerque's Technical-Vocational Institute (T-VI) and discovered a place for my eclectic interests, knowledge and skills, in the set decoration craft of the film industry.

The Feminine Eye
Belen ART League Photography Show

May 28th - June 25th
Belen ART League Gallery
Belen, New Mexico

This was an all female photographers event at the gallery.  We had to fill up the whole front room with our exhibit.  I chose an animal theme and featured my beloved kitties:  Tuffy, Nillie, Missy and their mother Butterscotch.  I exhibited fourteen pieces of different sizes since there was only four of us to fill up the reception room at the gallery.  They were all 35mm.

Belen Public Library


Took my turn showing my photography on the Belen ART League's exhibit wall in the library for a month.  I put up six of the shots I had in the photo show event.

Belen ART League
Fall Show

September 17th - October 21st
Harvey House Museum
Belen, New Mexico

Our fall show event shared the Harvey House with the Smithsonian traveling exhibit "Between Fences" so we had a fence theme as well.  That limited us to two pieces of wall art instead of the usual three.

The gallery kept special hours to accommodate this event.  The Fiber to Finish group was set up next door, in the Camino Real Museum.  I had my Bois D'Arc Apple ornaments there with them.
