If you love animals and great art, Unsettled Gallery is the place to be during the month of November. A portion of sales from the November exhibits and events will be donated to the Dona Ana County Humane Society, a volunteer-based organization dedicated to improving the lives of companion animals. Everyone can help benefit shelter animals that face uncertain futures by bringing a modest donation of office or pet supplies to any of the November events or drop off items during regular gallery hours. To see a list of supplies the DACHS needs, click here.

The month begins with an artist’s reception, on Saturday, November 8 (4 to 6 PM) for Kathleen Squires and her exhibit All Things Bright and Beautiful. Inspired by the vistas, architecture and cultural treasures found at home in the desert Southwest and corresponding aspects experienced while traveling, she interprets what she sees using bright colors, loose brush strokes and inventive compositions. Squires’ work is included in numerous solo and group exhibits and her work is held in both private and public collections.

On Saturday, November 22, beginning at 10 AM, nearly thirty artists join Kathleen Squires to celebrate our companion animals. The artists' irresistible art, accessibly sized and priced, shows in the “mini-exhibit” All Creatures Great And Small: Wings, Tails And Scales To give you an idea of just how irresistible the work is, click here to preview selected images and information about the DACHS. For more images, click here.

For more ways to help empty shelters, adoptable pets will be on the premises on November 22 from (approximately) 11:30 until 1:30 PM. A trainer will join the activities – (time TBD) – during the day with demonstrations and hints you can use to help your pet or adopted pet fit in their home.

So please join us for all of these events and – please remember how much a small supplies donation can help. To use someone else’s words, “It’s a good thing.”

Column heading for a narrative about the gallery

Unsettled Gallery is a unique, contemporary art gallery in southern New Mexico, displaying a diverse range of art styles and mediums by a select group of artists.

Located along the site of the celebrated Camino Real (the 'Royal Highway') within the Original Townsite of Las Cruces, New Mexico, the gallery building is an historic, adobe structure. Over its long life, the building served many purposes: family home, apartment, fruit stand, packaged liquor store drive through to name just a few of its personalities. Acquired in 2003 by an artist interested in saving old adobes, rescue and restoration began. The current owners completed a nearly one-year restoration and renovation in 2007 launching the building into use as an art gallery for which it seems happily suited.
