The Mesilla Valley Fine Arts Gallery (MVFG), 2470-A Calle de Guadalupe, across from the Fountain Theatre on this historic Mesilla Plaza, will feature the works of local artists Sue Ann Glenn and Yvonne Postelle in November.
Glenn, a watercolorist, brings to life ordinary objects and scenes, MVFG said in a news release. She holds an art education degree from Central Michigan University and taught elementary art for 15 years in a large Michigan school system. After 32 years of teaching, Glenn retired to focus full time on watercolors. She has participated in juried and local shows and is a member of New Mexico Watercolor society.
Postelle works primarily in oils as a landscape painter, MVFG said. The love of art has been a constant passion for Postelle for as long as she can remember. Postelle retired from the business world in 1989 to pursue her art. She has attended extensive art classes and workshops, has exhibited regularly in both group and juried shows and has served in different capacities in local art associations.
