Artists on Art - located at the El Paso Museum of Art (EPMA) provides local artists an opportunity to exhibit one work of art in any media accompanied by a 30 minute discussion on their work and its relation to the Museum’s permanent collection. There are four exhibits per year and the work is exhibited for a three-month period.  Artists interested in being featured in Artists on Art are encouraged to contact Christian Gerstheimer, Curator at (915) 532-1707 x 20.
 
Lauren Greenwald lives and works in Las Cruces, NM.  She is a visual artist working primarily in photography and video. Her work focuses on landscape and perception, and incorporates digital and analog processes ranging from pinhole photography to digital video. Ms. Greenwald received her B.A. in Art History and French from the College of Charleston and her M.F.A. in Studio Art with a minor in Museum Studies, from the University of New Mexico in 2011. She is currently a Visiting Assistant Professor of Photography at New Mexico State University in Las Cruces, NM.
 
The work shown is part of a project born out of the monotony a long commute – specifically, twice weekly drives on I-25 between Albuquerque, NM and Las Cruces, NM, a round trip of more than 500 miles. Greenwald began documenting these trips using a pinhole camera and paper negatives to record the landscape as experienced, capturing both long exposures from the moving car and static images at various roadside locations. The work shown, Rest (Scenic), 2012,  is representative of the New Mexico landscape Greenwald has tried to depict; miles of plain and sky, seemingly empty, but full of mystery and hidden meaning.
