What’s Nuevo at the Residency?

With all the excitement around our upcoming Exposure programs and ART School, it’s really nice to enjoy the peaceful and productive environment on the grounds of Starry Night. Things really come full circle when you put together a show, such as our Exposure program, and the residency is at the heart of it all. This is where our programs all originated, and it is where the creativity begins — long before it’s framed and hung and shown. 

Artists in Residence

We welcome our latest AIRs to Starry Night!  Kelly Lanzendorfer from Pittsburgh, PA, and Luis De la Torre, from Chicago.  We are all enjoying the sunshine and a warm, mild winter in Nuevo Mexico!

Luis’s Work in the studio

Luis has shown us some amazing photographs of his mosaic installations. Here is a peek at Luis’s current project in the studio, hand painted tiles:

Luis De La Torre, artist, hand painted this tile. Maybe he will use it in his next mosaic?


We’re shedding light on Starry Night, literally. We’ve just finished hanging shiny new light fixtures on our patio! Every little improvement to the grounds of the residency gets us closer to our happy place.
