Peregrino Opening
There is a saying that it is the journey that brings happiness, not the destination. Journeys imply movement, action, and a sense of exploration. Pilgrims welcome those journeys with sacred purpose. As Mark Twain once said, "Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness". Join us in exploring these ideas in our new show, Peregrino! This show will run from March 6th-April 4th. An opening reception will be held on Friday, March 6th from 5pm-7pm.

During this time as well, Lauren Sherwood-Voelkel and Jane McConnell   will be hosting an event at the clay studio. This Community Dialogue and Exhibition event will showcase artwork made during  Play with Clay: Building Wellness Through Creativity . This event will provide a space for community conversation around the mental health needs of Los Alamos County through interactive art experiences and open conversation with local art therapy interns. This event is free and open to the public. 
Diane Stoffel will also be opening her show "Black Mesa Majesty" in our portal gallery. Black Mesa is a subject of ever-changing light and shadow, color and intensity, shifting with atmospheric conditions and the arc of the sun. Each season brings a different palette of colors to its form and surroundings. Through a combination of plein air and studio paintings, the artist captures Black Mesa’s enigmatic role as a sentinel over the Rio Grande Valley and its home within San Ildefonso lands in all its seasonal majesty.

Keep an eye out for an email with more information about these shows coming soon!
Gallery Space at Mesa Public Library
On March 5th from 5pm-5pm, the gallery space in Mesa Public Library will be the LAPS All-schools art show! This show will feature work of students from all the schools in LAPS. The Los Alamos jazz fest will be providing live music. This event is free and open to the public, so stop by to check out the amazing talent of our local students!
Looking Ahead to 2021!
We are currently looking to schedule our exhibits for the upcoming year, and we would love to hear from you if you have any ideas for shows! Every year we offer shows with a wide variety of themes to help keep our exhibits fresh and exciting. We turn to our amazing community to help us come up with engaging ideas.

If you would like to submit an idea, please send an email to info@fullerlodgeartcenter.com

Welcome to our interim gallery shop manager!
We'd like to give a warm welcome to our interim gallery shop manager Matthew Dunn!

Matthew has recently move to Los Alamos after completing his BS in physics and math at the University of Nebraska. He will be taking over the running of our gallery shop.
We are accepting applications for Green Thumb!
Although everyone is familiar with landscapes abounding in colors other than green, green has a way of signifying environmental health. Take on a green mentality to create, supplement, and sustain a thriving environment. Use this exhibition to explore hot topics like global warming, to recognize our integral role in our landscape, or to simply marvel in the fertility, tenacity, and abundance, of the natural world. Are our carbon footprints killing off the world with our heavy treads, or is there hope?
Applications for fairs are now available!
We have applications available for our 2020 fairs!

Our summer fair will be on August 8th, and our fall fair will be on October 17th. Our summer fair will take place at the Fuller lodge Lawn. The location of our fall fair is TBD.
