Fodor's Expert Review Preston Contemporary Art Center

Old Mesilla Art Galleries

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.
