FLAC News:
The Fuller Lodge Art Center has announced that the application deadline for the upcoming Making Waves Show is July 8.
A single stone thrown into the water can create a ripple that will affect the entire pond. Water is a sacred and often misused blessing, especially in the desert landscape of New Mexico. Melting ice caps due to climate change also can impact various other ecosystems and coastal landscapes.
Or, maybe water is largely used or is the main medium of your artwork. FLAC invites artists to take on water and all that it means to them personally. Don’t shy away from the controversy water issues can create! FLAC wants to see the artwork that makes the biggest splash. 
  • Application Deadline: Extended to Monday, July 8;
  • Jury Notifications: Monday, July 15;

Meet the Jurors 
Stephanie Hagelberg
“I grew up in rural Minnesota, first tie dyeing in 4H, probably using Rit dyes. In 1985 I took a tie dyeing class in Minneapolis using Fiber Reactive Dyes, which I still use today.”
After retiring from Los Alamos National Lab in 2016 a friend gave her a lab coat for her home tie dyeing. After mending one of the side seams, she decided to “hide” the stains on it by completely dyeing it with one of her favorite techniques. She made waves by tie dyeing the lab coats used in her group at Los Alamos National Laboratory.
Jeanne Hyland
Jeanne was asked to jury for the Making Waves exhibit because she is a master watercolor artist who has pioneered techniques including a wet and workable technique, and would be perfect as a juror because she is so adept at her art form and knows the gallery space well. Read her artist statements here.
Cat Ozment
Catherine Ozment developed a passion for functional pottery after moving to Los Alamos in 2015. She serves as co-coordinator of the Fuller Lodge Art Center ceramics studio. Most recently, she has been experimenting with textures, altered forms and glaze chemistry to incorporate landscape and poetry into her work. She also was recently named chair of the Democratic Party of Los Alamos County and is enthusiastic about exploring the spaces where art and politics overlap.  
As an artist and an activist, her voice is loud and clear when it comes to issues that she stands up for. She does not fear making splashes if she’s passionate about the cause. FLAC hopes this show will give artists a platform to use their voices as well.
