Cool Art

Roberta-Parry-Creek-Edge-Rock-Garden

The Vista Grande Public Library (VGPL) will host Santa Fe artist, Roberta Parry, March 2- 30 in the library gallery. “Of Rocks and Trees” features transparent watercolors and some gouache.

The exhibit includes intimate watercolor ‘portraits’ of rocks and trees as they grace and inform our landscape. Parry’s strong yet lyrical paintings reflect her affinity for watercolor and the impact of light and color on her work. She explains, “Color and light are the elements that most strike my sensuous core, and transparent watercolors best capture the vibrancy and translucence of sky, earth, water and all that grows and travel therein.”

The public is invited to meet the artist March 8 from 4 – 6 pm. Light refreshments will be served.

The VGPL exhibition series is for the enjoyment of patrons when visiting the library located south of the El Dorado Community School, on 14 Avenida Torreon. Exhibition art will be on sale by the artist and available to the purchaser after the close of the show. The library will receive a sales commission benefiting operations and library programming.

Gun Violence is Not Cool

New Mexicans to Prevent Gun Violence is working on three bills for the 2019 legislative session.  Please call and email all committee members. Our elected officials need to know that the time is NOW to pass gun violence prevention bills.
  • HB87 would prohibit domestic violence offenders under protective orders from possessing firearms .
  • HB130 is a child access prevention bill. This is a youth driven bill by teenagers in our group. It would hold gun owners liable if their firearm gets in the hands of a minor and that minor hurts him or herself or someone else.
  • HB129 This bill would tighten our criminal code so that only security guards can carry firearms at school and not teachers.
Here are the contact numbers for the committee:
Representative Liz Thompson (D):
Representative Andrea Romero (D)
Representative Candy Spence Ezzell (R)
Representative Angelica Rubio (D)
Representative Gregg Schmedes (R)

Cool Project

Guns to Garden Tools (For Sale)

All-Tools

New Mexicans to Prevent Gun Violence (NMPGV) wants to take the thousands of unwanted working guns in New Mexico and turn them into shovels and spades for community gardens but they need your help. Would you like to buy one of these COOL Guns to Garden Tools?

They have had six gun buybacks & taken over 400 working firearms out of use & off the streets of NM. The last gun buyback in Las Cruces cost just over $20,000. NMPGV gives gift cards to local grocery stores, gas stations, Target, etc. but not cash, so people can’t go and buy another gun. The cost to buy guns is:

  • $100 for a long gun or pistol
  • $200 for semi-automatic handguns
  • $250 for assault weapons

NMPGV pays artist/iron monger/forger, Tiago Rene Torres de Silva, $60 to make each tool. He has earned over $1,300 so far making Guns to Garden tools.

Wear Your GRACE at 125 E. Palace Ave. has the tools on display and sells them with 100% of the profits going to NMPGV. Call 505-780-5611 or stop by today and buy a garden tool (really a piece of art) in support of this wonderful program. The tools are a bit pricey but now you know why.

“Firearms are now used in the creation of something new, preventing the guns use for violence and creating a cycle of peace.”
