“Sacred and Wild: The Art of Virginia Maria Romero” explores the work of nationally and internationally renowned artist Virginia María Romero, a resident of Las Cruces. Romero, a visionary artist, master santera, and poet brings together the holy and the wild in images of saints and animals, and provokes a reconsideration of constructs of separateness through her Crossing Boundaries series. The powerful wordless knowing of Romero’s subjects invites connection with spiritual mystery, the ineffable, and the possibility of shared experience.
