Honors Gallery to host Puerto del Sol exhibit

As part of the 40th Anniversary of Puerto del Sol, New Mexico State University's international literary magazine, the Honors College will host an art exhibit opening at the William Conroy Honors Center Art Gallery that will feature covers and artwork by Louis Ocepek.


tion will take place from 4 to 6 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 10, at the Honors Center on the corner of University and Espina avenues. The artwork featured will be covers and posters of the magazine created by Ocepek since 1988.

Ocepek said the work will be a mixture of conventional and digital illustrations, along with limited edition works and posters from various events.

"It will be interesting to people who are interested in illustration, graphic design and writing," Ocepek said. "They also will be interested in the conventional and digital means of illustration. When I started designing the covers in 1988, they were all done conventionally; now they are all done digitally."

Puerto del Sol contains fiction and non-fiction works, along with essays, poetry and book reviews. The reception also will honor those who have contributed to the magazine over the past 40 years.
