Jeri Desrochers

Now You're Home featuring new artwork of Las Cruces artist Jeri Desrochers opens at Unsettled Gallery on Friday, October 30 at 4 PM with an artist's reception. Desrochers, as in past years, has opted to donate a portion of her exhibit sales to a not-for-profit organization in Las Cruces. The gallery matches Desrochers' contribution.

Now You're Home celebrates home, community and compassion with Desrochers and the gallery providing support to the Dona Ana County Humane Society. Desrochers and the gallery are asking exhibit visitors to bring a small donation of pet supplies, such as dog/cat food, leashes, toys, treats or pet store gift cards. These supplies will be donated to the Animal Services Center of the Mesilla Valley.

In addition to supporting programs of the Dona Ana County Humane Society, the exhibit will kick off the Books for Furever Friends Project (B.F.F.). Over 50 books related to animal welfare will be given by the artist to be used in local classrooms by humane society educators.

Now You're Home artworks express Desrochers' feelings of joy, peace and excitement that our local landscape evokes. The scenery of valley and mountains is expressed in her work with intense color and texture applied with a palette knife. Her vibrant oil paintings have received numerous awards including Best of Show in the Sun Bowl Exhibit at the International Museum of Art in December 2014 and resides in numerous public and private collections.

Concluding the exhibit on Saturday, November 28, will be a palette knife demonstration by Desrochers and a sale of smaller works that are perfect for holiday gifting. (Don't forget gift your own home!).

Please join us on Friday, October 30 at 4 PM for a look at Desrochers new work. Learn more about the DACHS programs and the "Furever Friends Project".

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.
