The art of Out of this World transforms Gallery X into Galaxy X in celebration of the 76th anniversary of the UFO sightings in Roswell, New Mexico in 1947. 34 artists are exhibiting their artwork in this community exhibition featuring everything from the unknowns of space to sci-fi and futurism. Out of this World is curated by artist and Gallery X member David Walega.
From the curator:
Humans have been fascinated with the unknown of space for centuries. On July 7th, 1947, an Unidentified Flying Object (UFO) crashed landed in the desert outside Roswell, New Mexico. The era of the flying saucer was launched as interplanetary beings became part of the popular culture. For some it was evidence of intelligent life from another planet, for others a giant hoax. However, it has sparked the imagination of generations of folks to make art while pondering their place in the universe.
Gallery X celebrates all the possibilities of art making.
