Diane Cutter Takes Over as President of CSA

t is with great pleasure (and some trepidation) that

I move into the President’s chair.  Ken Duckert has

done a wonderful job of steering CSA these past three

years, and I can only hope to continue in his fine tradition.  

We have some new Board members and some returning

so you can expect CSA to continue strong, with a new

infusion of energy coupled with the vast experience of

older Board members.

Being relatively new to Corrales and to a lot of you,

I was asked to write something about me:  I grew up

in New Mexico, graduating the “old” Albuquerque High

and the University of New Mexico.  From there I’ve spent

years overseas and in Puerto Rico. But my heart has

always remained in New Mexico.  

After convincing my husband to leave “paradise”, we moved to Corrales four years ago. I love the strong art community and all the opportunities available to me as an artist. I’ve worked in many mediums (oil, watercolor, printmaking) and, at the moment, am working extensively at scratchboard and experimenting with various printmaking methods.

I am always happy to hear of ways we can make CSA better and more efficient, but we also like to hear from you if things are going well.  Either way, please call 505-717-1233 or email me cutterstudio@yahoo.com.  Let’s talk!

CSA Searching to Fill Position of Secretary

The Board is still searching for someone to fill the Secretary vacancy on the Board of Directors.  This is a very important, but not time consuming job. We are asking members  to consider joining the leadership team as Secretary.  Interested individuals should contact Diane Cutter.

New Location for CSA Meetings

The Corrales Arts Center (CAC), located at 4940 Corrales Road, Ste. 100, in the same building as Las Ristras Restaurant, just north of the Fire House.is the new location for all CSA monthly meetings. You can view a list of meeting dates and times on the Contact page.

CSA The Corrales Art & Studio Tour Preview reception held at the historic Casa Vieja was one of the best attended in most recent history. At times, the parking lot lover flowed and there was standing room only in the newly remodeled event center.




Fall Fine Art Show

Art|Corrales, Casa Vieja, Corrales,

November 5-6, 2017: The Corrales

Society of Artists (CSA) will

conduct Art|Corrales, a fine arts and

fine crafts show on Saturday and Sunday,

November 5-6, 2017.  This is a new event.  

Casa Vieja, the Preview Gallery site for the

Corrales Art & Studio Tour, is

the venue for this show.  Casa Vieja will

jointly produce the show with CSA and the

Corrales Art Center. Participation is by

invitation and based on an assessment by a

distinguished CSA panel.  

Thirty-five exceptional artists, including both two and three-dimensional artists, are featured in the event.  

Unlike many fine art and fine craft shows, art chosen for display is determined by each artist, with artists display six to eight pieces.

A dinner reception will open the show on Friday, November 4. We anticipate this will be an event long remembered in the Village.  Proceeds from the dinner will benefit art education in the local elementary schools.  Tickets are available online at www.corralesartscenter.org

Visit corralessocietyofartists.org and click on the center panel of the home page or use the dropdown menu under EVENTS-PROGRAMS to access Art|Corrales. There are individual pages for participating artists.


Enforcement of Local Business Licenses

In a recent meeting with Corrales Village officials, we learned that there are plans to increase enforcement of artists having a Corrales business license.  This will apply to all CSA events conducted in Corrales.  CSA will not "police" these licenses.  We are advised that Village representatives might show up at our events and ask for them.  Nonresidents of Corrales need a simple business permit which costs $35.  Residents of Corrales have two options. One is to get a home occupancy license which is an involved process, including submitting forms, pictures of the home and going before the city board for approval.  The cost is $35. The second option is to get a vendor's permit which costs $100 and is good thru next Jan.   Appropriate forms are available in the Village office or by requesting them from Ken Duckert, kenduckert91@gmail.com.
