ARTWALK 2019: Collie Ryan

Each year, Alpine’s Gallery Night, Inc. (AGNI) selects a Big Bend artist to feature in a special exhibit and in that year’s promotional artwork. The 2019 ArtWalk Featured Artist was Collie Ryan of Terlingua, whose hubcap mandalas have found their way to collections all over the US over the last several decades. As Ryan writes, “People need mandalas. They teach us and remind us that life is a circle, a cycle—all things interconnected. Life is an unfolding mandala and we all have our place in the great wheel of life.”

Ryan’s work was shown at the Hecho a Mano Art Market at Kishmish Plaza.

Free live music was performed at several locations around town including
The Main Stage (Kishmish Plaza) and the Kiowa Hideout (behind the Kiowa Gallery).
