Artists on Art- located at the El Paso Museum of Art (EPMA) provides local artists an opportunity to exhibit one work of art in any media accompanied by a 30 minute discussion on their work and its relation to the Museum’s permanent collection. There are four exhibits per year and the work is exhibited for a three-month period.  Artists interested in being featured in Artists on Art are encouraged to contact Christian Gerstheimer, Curator at (915) 532-1707 x 20.
 
Dave Phelps was born in 1953 and lives and works in Truth or Consequences, New Mexico.  His art is a commentary on “the overwhelming barrage of information and material goods that confronts us every day.”  His repetitive use of everyday materials such as barcodes emphasizes how much technology plays a role in our lives.  Join Dave in a discussion of his current and future work.
