SANTA FE—Del Norte Credit Union, northern New Mexico’s hometown financial cooperative, recently partnered with celebrated artist Amado Peña as part of its just-launched DNCU North Star Artists Series dedicated to supporting northern New Mexican artists.
Four Peña pieces now decorate the walls of the just-renovated DNCU Cordova branch, allowing members and visitors to experience Pena’s vibrant interpretation of Native peoples who live in harmony with an untamed land.
“As a company and as individuals, DNCU and its employees and members support the communities in which we have a presence in northern New Mexico,” said Chuck Valenti, Del Norte Credit Union President/CEO. “The artists of northern New Mexico brilliantly capture the essence and spirituality of this special place and are a reason so many people flock to the area. Peña and his peers deserve recognition for their efforts.”
The DNCU North Star Artists series aims to showcase localartists in branches as space permits. The Peña exhibit is expected to be available through August, at which time another artist’s work will be chosen and shown.
An exhibit will soon be unveiled at the DNCU DeVargas branch.
