Fodor's Review

Preston Contemporary Art Center opened in 2008 to the delight of the arts community. Respected local architect Gerry Lundeen artfully balanced Mesilla's strict historic-compliance requirements in designing a natural-light-filled space ideal for contemporary works. Preston's international artists work in all media, from photography to sculpture, and the center's four annual exhibits have included the dramatically saturated botanical-pigment prints of Tom Millea; the ancient, yet modern ceramic vase forms of Terry Gieber; and mixed-media work, inspired by illuminated manuscripts, by Ellen Kochansky.
