District 3 Art Show "Transcendent Photography"
Commissioner Hart Stebbins and the Bernalillo County Arts Board are holding a reception for her latest District 3 Art Show installation on Friday, Feb. 19 from 5 - 6:30 p.m. on the 10th floor of One Civic Plaza, Suite 10111. "Transcendent Photography" features the works of seminal photographers and retired UNM professors of photography Betty Hahn and Patrick Nagatani.

This is the 38th in a series of exhibits showcasing the talent and creativity of District 3 art and artists. This exhibit will run through April, 2016.

“Betty Hahn and Patrick Nagatani shared their knowledge of the art of photography with scores of students during their careers at UNM,” says Commissioner Maggie Hart Stebbins. “That artistic experience is now shared with the community at large as part of this exhibit and the Bernalillo County Public Art Collection.”

Hahn's and Nagatini's photography works thrust the medium beyond the camera lens.

Their visionary techniques transformed the photograph into a spellbinding world - Hahn through her mastery of non-silver printing and Nagatani through his fabrication of fantastical scenes and as a “tapist”. Their transcendent photography invites us to join their vital dialogue about beauty and magic.

Hahn and Nagatani, widely recognized for their scholarly achievements and artistic contributions, have exhibited their work both nationally and internationally. Their work is included in the collections of many prominent museums and individuals. Bernalillo County is honored to have several of their pieces in the Bernalillo County Public Arts collection.
