Karla Ely Artist Reception & Dia de los Muertos Party - November 2nd,  2014 | 2 – 5 PM

A solo show called “Spirits Among Us,” celebrating Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) in glass by Karla Ely from Pahrump is now on exhibit in Tecopa. An artist’s reception and Dia de los Muertos Party Costume Contest is planned for Nov. 2 and Ely will be awarding gift certificates for her artwork to those with the best costumes. Ely is an artist who paints with glass — fused glass compositions mounted precisely in frames and ready for hanging. According to a press release, the “exhibition is a lively celebration of the dearly departed, but they are far from lifeless. The dynamic spirits featured conspicuously within these works will charm you with their individuality and enthusiasm.”

“Coyote and Puck” Lumoglyphs  by Charles Morgan, Artist Opening Reception  - November 9,  2013 |  3-6 pm

Location: Tecopa Hot Springs Resort   Tecopa Artist Group presents an exhibit of Lumoglyphs by Charles Morgan ”Coyote and Puck”. Lumoglyphs described by Charles:

“For the past twenty-five years or so I have been going out into the desert and making photographs at night, during a full moon. I selectively illuminate the rocks, sand, and plant life I find out there with different colors, using a strobe and filters. The light of the full moon slowly illuminates the surrounding areas that are left alone. I also use a flashlight to “draw” graffiti on the rocks/plants and in the air during the exposures. The “marks” I make show up only on the film in my camera, which has been recording all of this during a timed exposure. I like to call this graffiti “environmentally safe.”
