Artists in the Land Arts of the American West program at the University of New Mexico invite you to the exhibit, “Thank You, I Love You, I’m Sorry”. The title of this exhibit was adapted from a conversation with Beata Tsosie-Peña, Environmental Health and Justice Program Coordinator for Tewa Women United. She urged us to say these words to water in order to acknowledge how water nourishes and cares for us, and to take responsibility for our ecological relationships and actions. We took this to heart, experiencing the living land through these words.

We fully acknowledge that we are speaking from the homelands of many indigenous people and give thanks for the living mountains, valleys, and waters which sustain our lives. During the Fall of 2018 we visited the Headwaters of the Rio Grande, Wild Rivers on the Rio Grande, the Greater Chaco Region, Bears Ears, the Madrean Sky Islands, the confluence of Turkey Creek and the Gila River, and White Sands, learning about ecological, environmental, and social issues in each location. Learning from and with place and its inhabitants, we responded to this research by creating individual and collaborative artworks at each site. This exhibition features works created in immediate visceral response to encounters in the field, investigating land use, rootedness in place, cultural engagement, migration and pollination. Please join us to experience these works which seek to find ways of healing the illusory divide between human and more-than-human.
