Twelve artists are at work now making sculptural artworks using natural wild-crafted materials for this pair of exhibitions.  One will take place along a walking path at The Leonora Curtin Wetland Preserve, another inside the Axle Mobile Gallery.

The Leonora Curtin Wetland Preserve is a 35-acre nature preserve located just south of Santa Fe. The preserve is adjacent to El Rancho de las Golondrinas in La Cienega. This rare natural cienega, or marsh, hosts a bountiful diversity of plants and wildlife, including wildflower meadows, huge cottonwoods, reed-filled wetlands, and a tranquil pond.  The preserve is part of the Santa Fe Botanical Garden. 

DIRECTIONS: The preserve is located on the I-25 West Frontage Road south of Santa Fe. From I-25 take Exit 271 for “La Cienega” and turn onto West Frontage Road heading north. The parking lot entrance is 1½ miles north after turning onto West Frontage Road.  Hours: Saturdays: 9-12, Sundays: 1-4
