- Border Crossing explores recent work by Albuquerque-based artist Jami Porter Lara, who hand-builds and pit-fires clay sculptures resembling an icon of modernity—the plastic bottle.
- New Ground: The Southwest of Maria Martinez and Laura Gilpin illuminates the midcentury Southwest as a nuanced and dynamic environment in which these two women created art that embodied a distinctively modern aesthetic.
