The Frame and Art Center is showing ‘Visions of a Chameleon’ in May

By Mike Cook

The Center for Frames and Art, 1100 S. Main St., in Pueblo Plaza, hosts the “Chameleon Visions,” with an exhibition of paintings and congratulations with an artistic print by artist Linda Marlene Carr of Las Cruces during May.

The opening of the show will be from 1pm to 3pm on Saturday, May 14 at Frame and Art.

You can also see the exhibition during the regular working hours of Frame and Art, from 9 am to 5 pm from Monday to Friday and from 10 am to 3 pm on Saturdays.

Carr painted in her 20s, the artist said, but then stopped a few years before starting again seven years ago. She took lessons from esteemed Las Cruces artist Sally Quillen, but considers herself primarily self-taught.

Carr paints mostly “wild-style” abstracts, using brushes, pallet knives and sponges, she said.

Before painting, he enters the creative space with meditative music, and then chooses the colors he wants to create an atmosphere for the work. Colors can be added or dropped when he starts painting.

“The paintings are done in bright colors to get people’s attention,” Carr said, “and to bring a strong response and impact to your audience with a timely message.”

Carra’s other artistic experiences over the years have been weaving, spinning, dyeing vegetables, knitting, crocheting, sewing / design, weaving and art cards, she said. For all his art projects, Carr relies on the use of colors and textures.

Painting is now her “favorite artistic expression of love, depth and transformation,” Carr said.
