Begy, who recently began a local artist salon in Santa Fe, received her MFA from the School of Visual Arts in New York. She splits her time between New York and New Mexico.

Although the artist’s drawings will be on display during this exhibition, her work extends to the sculptural medium as well. Begy carves lifelike objects such as guns from salt blocks, which slowly become less refined and ultimately dissolve.

Begy writes of her sculptures and drawings that her work “begins with a narrative that takes place within a given structure and explore triadic relationships and concepts. Sensual/ Scientific/Spiritual. Nurturance/Governance/Destruction.”
