Seventeen students from the CNM studio arts program are presenting Progressence, a group exhibition at the Downtown Contemporary gallery, 105 4th street SW, beginning April 2 and ending April 27. The opening reception is Friday, April 6 from 6-8 p.m.

"Most of the students in this show are at the end of their time at CNM, on the verge of getting their AA degrees in Art Studio, and ready to transfer on to other institutions," says CNM art instructor Danielle Miller. "The show is part of the coursework for Art Career Concerns, and while the artwork was chosen by me, the work of organizing, hanging, and publicizing the exhibition has all been done by the students. Please come support the CNM Art Department, and our students!"

This exhibition features various styles and approaches that form a diverse collection of works. The pieces include everything from drawing and painting to sculpture, and from naturalism to the abstract, showcasing emerging talent in the Albuquerque area. This exhibition is the first for many of these artists, all showing the progress each has made.

Artists participating include Brendon Slattery, David Tapp, Bradford Erickson, Christian Becenti, John Snee, Julia Lambright, Noelani Smith, Crystal Perea, Carmen Prince, Matt Toers-Bijns, Robert Thomas IV, Fabian Pedroza, Jacob Wolff, Richard Trujillo, Haven Avila, Charla Chouinard and Aaron Berg.
