Please join us on Thursday, December 11, 2014 at 5:30 pm at the El Paso Museum of Art in the Isha Rogers Sculpture Gallery for Artists on Art with Christian Gerstheimer, Curator who will be discussing Phelps’ work. 
  
Artists on Art- located at the El Paso Museum of Art (EPMA) provides local artists an opportunity to exhibit one work of art in any media accompanied by a 30 minute discussion on their work and its relation to the Museum’s permanent collection. There are four exhibits per year and the work is exhibited for a three-month period.  Artists interested in being featured in Artists on Art are encouraged to contact Christian Gerstheimer, Curator at (915) 532-1707 x 20.
 
Dave Phelps was born in 1953 and lives and works in Truth or Consequences, New Mexico.  His art is a commentary on “the overwhelming barrage of information and material goods that confronts us every day.”  His repetitive use of everyday materials such as barcodes emphasizes how much technology plays a role in our lives.  Join Dave in a discussion of his current and future work.

Join us for “Spark Saturday.”  On the second Saturday of each month the museum offers programs for multiple generations. Docents will engage visitors in an Art Explorations program at 1:00 and 2:00, and at 1:30 and 2:30 younger audiences and their caregivers can have fun while learning about art in the PreK Book Club. The 2:00 p.m. movie will also be geared toward a family audience.
 
This month kicks off our “Creation Lab.”  On Spark Saturdays, the Pre-K classroom transforms into a place where visitors can try their hand at creating a variety of things using materials and tools provided by the museum. Come and ignite your creativity. Spark Saturday is free and open to the public.
