Join Us in Supporting Tortuga Gallery’s Bosque Mural

In collaboration with Mural Fest 2018 and Tortuga Gallery, three local artists (Denise Weaver Ross, Joel Davis, and Roe LiBretto) have designed a nearly 25′ x 90′ mural, celebrating the flora and fauna of Albuquerque’s Rio Grande Bosque. The mural will wrap around the gallery’s home at 901 Edith SE during Mural Fest 2018 starting at the end of September. Tural Fest 2018 has worked with Tortuga and the artists to launch a Go Fund Me campaign. 15% of the money raised during the Go Fund Me campaign will go to Sierra Club’s Bosque Action Team.

Author: Vicki Bolen, Little Bird de Papel

I am a paper artist living and creating in Albuquerque, NM. Working with paper to create art gives me an appreciation for the beauty and cultural significance of this versatile material. I began by folding origami cranes, and over the years my work has evolved to include handmade greeting cards, book making, boxes and mono prints. Each piece gives me the opportunity to create something useful while expressing myself artistically. I attend numerous art and crafts festivals throughout the country because my intent is to share the joy I experience in making art. My artwork is also available through my Etsy and Redbubble shops.
