"Construction Zone" by Joanna M. Wezyk will be on display from Nov. 6 to Jan. 11, 2010. Wezyk's exhibition focuses on her drawings and oil paintings of Catholic churches in Poland and France, where imagery of faith is contrasted to modernity and values are placed in dialogue with contemporary politics.

Wezyk grew up in Kracow, Poland, during the Soviet era and came to the U.S. in her late 20s. Her exhibition will open with a reception and she will be in attendance to talk to visitors.

The reception is free and open to the public. The NMSU Art Gallery is located at 1390 E. University Avenue, east of Solano Drive. The gallery is open from 11 a.m.to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and 12-4 p.m. Saturday. For more information call (575) 646-2545 or visit http://www.nmsu.edu/artgal.
