FAMA exhibit, ‘Finally Moving’ opens today

The group art show, “Finally Moving,” features work by current Pagosa High school FAMA students as well as Pagosa alumni.

The artwork of Andrea Fautheree, junior FAMA student and Scholastics Art Winner, Meghan Moran, senior art student, Kyle Monks, Pagosa alumnus, Mariah Taylor, Pagosa alumnus, and Desiree Pastin, junior FAMA student, will be featured from May 13 through the end of May at Pagosa Baking Co.

This show is one of the 2010 FAMA showcases coordinated and run by students for the community. FAMA’s mission is to prepare students for a fulfilling life of creative self-expression and problem-solving by fostering independent thought and an interdisciplinary view of art. FAMA encourages students to create and achieve goals, have a strong vision of the future and the role of art in shaping it while being quality producers of original work and seeing the importance of a historical framework. To this end, students involved with Pagosa’s Fine Arts Magnet Academy are required to create a year-end project in their discipline. Three music students, Jon Hudson, Ami Harbison and Peter Morey gave a lovely recital last Monday evening and Desiree Ewing will have her art show at the Pagosa Teen Center May 21-22.

“Finally Moving” contains paintings, photography, printmaking, film and mixed media pieces dealing with themes ranging from race relations to our varied perceptions of the world. The show’s opening artist reception is today, from 6 to 8 p.m., and features live music, hors d’oevures from Pagosa Baking Co., and film viewings. Don’t miss this opportunity to see the creativity of Pagosa’s fine young artists.
