Artist to display work at Corbett Center Art Gallery

"Silence Sound Silence," an exhibit by artist Raul Dorn, will be presented in New Mexico State University's Corbett Center Art Gallery Oct. 19 through Nov. 7.


ces artist Raul Dorn began his formal art training in ceramics at the University of New Mexico in 1977. He moved to Las Cruces in 1983 to work toward his bachelor of fine arts in drawing and painting.

Dorn's desire to work with youth inspired him to pursue his master's in curriculum and instruction from New Mexico State University in 1988. He has been a painting, drawing and ceramics instructor at Mayfield High School for 14 years.

Dorn has been included in local and statewide exhibitions, as well as a nationally juried contemporary abstractionist show. Most recently, his work was used to beautify a local underpass in Mesilla as part of the I-10 State Highway Department and City of Las Cruces mural program.

A reception will be held for the artist from 6-8 p.m. Oct. 19.

The gallery is open from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. Sunday through Friday and 8 a.m. to midnight Saturday.
