    Time: 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM MST
    Event Description:
    This event is free. The exhibit will be open until March 7. McCray Gallery hours: M-F 10AM-5PM “My work encompasses multiple media, including paintings, drawings, sculpture, and installation. There is always an element of the sensory in my art—a texture, a color, a deep space—something to engage the senses of the viewer. The intention of the work is to contemplate boundaries, edges, and limits. My abstract color fields run the risk of invisibility, but silence, patience, and deep listening is fundamental to the satisfaction of the viewer.” —Marietta Patricia Leis Marietta Patricia Leis was born in Newark, New Jersey. She has worked as a professional artist for 30+ years. She has lived in New York, Los Angeles, Perugia, Italy, and now lives and works in New Mexico. She is a painter whose work has evolved from very complex abstractions to reductive color fields inspired by my Eastern Studies and nature. She has participated in Artist Residencies both in the US and abroad.She earned her MFA from the University of New Mexico. https://www.mariettaleis.com/ Sponsor: WNMU Office of Cultural Affairs Co-sponsor: Western Institute for Lifelong Learning (WILL),
