Tactile yet fragile, moving between the disciplines of sculpture, paint, and drawing– Allison Hudson’s artwork is created with a combination of unfired clay, twine, fabric, resin, dye, and wax, resulting in work that is both ethereal and visceral.
Silver City -- Christmas goodies, free children's activities, music, festive food, and arts and crafts vendors highlight the Silver City Museum's beloved Christmas holiday tradition, "Victorian Christmas and More." The event, which takes place in the museum courtyard from 11 am to 3 pm, Saturday, December 16, has expanded to better reflect the rich cultural diversity and traditions of the desert Southwest.
"This holiday celebration is designed to reflect the entirety of Grant County's rich, cultural diversity and history," said Bart Roselli, museum director. "We're very grateful to our community partners for participating this year, including our wonderful volunteers at the Silver City Museum Society, First American Bank, First New Mexico Bank, and Shaun Bird of Edward Jones, as well as LULAC, and our many talented, local musicians and food and craft vendors. We hope everyone will join us for some holiday fun and community celebration."

The 9th Annual Holiday Artisan Market will be held this weekend, Dec. 2nd and 3rd at the Grant County Veterans Memorial Business and Conference Center next to Ace Hardware on Hwy. 180 East. It will be open from 10 – 4 on Saturday and 11 to 3 on Sunday.
The annual event was started when one of the members couldn’t understand why there was not an indoor art show before Christmas with the number of artists that lived in the area. The first markets were held at the old post office on Broadway downtown. It was hard to find a spot large enough while they were remodeling the conference center. The event is now held annually the first full weekend in December at the newly remodeled business and conference center.
