A report on the recently concluded 30-day New Mexico legislative session will be presented by Senator Bill Soules and Representative Joanne Ferrary.

Elisa Sanchez. I grew up in a segregated community, Grant County. How did that segregation manifest itself? What was it like to live like that and what lessons did I learn? Has it changed and, if it did, what caused the change?

No Roundtable  Instead, you are urged to attend the special, open meeting of the Social Justice Committee where you will help select the 4 local charities that will be recipients of our 2024-25 Change for Change program.

Sun, Mar 24, 2024 — 11:45 am--12:45 pm — Roundtable: Green Sanctuary Program – Sanctuary

What’s in the new ‘green sanctuary’ program? The Unitarian Universalist Association’s “Green Sanctuary” program used to mean making a church campus environmentally efficient and about 30% of UU churches have done that. The new Green Sanctuary program includes much more, such as: including congregational transformation, lessening emissions and reducing vulnerabilities to climate change on campus and in the community, and working toward climate justice. James Caufield will try to describe this ambitious program, and we can talk about what we have done and what we might still do. He’ll also try to breeze through some of the Green Sanctuary survey results.

Sun, Mar 31, 2024 — 11:45 am--12:45 pm — Roundtable: Not today – Sanctuary

It’s Easter Sunday.

Current Art Show 

Encaustic Art

The Tombaugh Gallery is presenting a combined show featuring two well known Las Cruces artists, Carrie Greer and Karen Ziebert. Both artists have explored various mediums over the course of their careers but both have discovered the breadth of expression possible with encaustic or working in wax. The artwork is painted with melted pigmented wax or fused to the substrate using a heat source, such as a propane torch. Carrie explains that “the wax calls to me as I enter into a journey with it. . . .” Karen calls encaustic art “My new love.” Both artists have exhibited their work extensively in Las Cruces and throughout the state.

The exhibit opens with an artists reception on Sunday, March 3rd from 11:00 to 2:00. The show runs through March 24th.

Gallery Hours

The Gallery, located in the Unitarian Universalist Church at 2000 S. Solano Drive, is regularly open Thursday through Saturday, from 10 AM to 2:00 PM and Sunday, 11:30 AM to 2:00 PM.
