Roswell- SO much more than UFOs

My husband and I recently celebrated our 1st anniversary by taking a quick trip over to Roswell, NM. He wanted to immerse himself in alien stuff and I had been to their art museum before and liked it a lot. So we headed out last Friday and had a great time. While we were there we stopped at the Anderson Gallery. If you have never heard of the Anderson Gallery, you should make yourself aware of it!!! Never have I been in such a space that puts you in the middle of a wonderland of sorts of contemporary art. Sculptures, paintings, woodwork, boats, bottles, even a bar! It was a haven of amazing work. Most of the pieces are donated by former or current Artists in Residence. If you are an artist and are unfamiliar with that program you should check it out as well!!!

We were invited to hang out with the current Artists in Residence that evening at an opening and I am ever so glad we went. We sampled local wine and met people from all over the world. I had a wonderful time speaking with the artist from Poland. I will follow up this blog with one on that opening solely.

Check out the website for the Anderson Gallery here and make sure you read up on the Artist in Residence program as well.

If you do plan on traveling to Roswell any time soon, make sure you stop by the Pecos Winery on Main Street and say hello to Dave. He is great for recommending wine and good places to visit while you are there!!!

Thanks Roswell for a great first anniversary!
