Mesilla Valley Fine Arts Gallery features Rimbach, Zucker in January


The Mesilla Valley Fine Arts Gallery (MVFG), 2470-A Calle de Guadalupe on the historic Mesilla Plaza, will feature the works of local artists Frank Rimbach and Naida Zucker during the month of January 2023, the gallery said in a news release.

Zucker, a mixed-media artist, combines gelatin monoprinting (hectography) with digital photography to produce one-of-a-kind art pieces, the gallery said. Zucker, a retired New Mexico State University biology professor, has taken workshops at the Mesilla Digital Imaging Center at the now-defunct Preston Gallery and studied printmaking with Ouida Touchon.

Rimbach has a master’s of fine arts degree from NMSU. He has taught at Central Texas College and currently teaches at El Paso Community College.

MVFG’s 30 featured artists offer original art in various media, including oil, acrylics, pastels, watercolor, fused glass art jewelry, woodturnings, stained glass, photography, ceramics, mixed media, decorated gourds, textile weavings, art tile, fiber art, natural gemstone jewelry, fused glass, colored pencil, charcoal, pen and ink drawings, prints, cards and miniature paintings.

First American Bank, 1553 Avenida de Mesilla, features the work of many of the gallery’s artists.

MVFG is open 10 a.m.-5 p.m. every day.
