Jim Rodgers’ interest in photography began at an early age using a simple Kodak camera. At age 15, he moved up to a Rolleicord twin lens reflex camera and processed his own film, which helped develop his artistic craft. He enjoyed spending time in the museums and art galleries of his hometown of Chicago. Later, living in New York, he found inspiration at the Museum of Modern Art. He has received many awards and his photographs are part of the permanent collection of Pace University in New York City. Most of Rodgers’ images are created a short distance from where he lives.
His work will be on exhibit throughout the month of March. Every month the Doña Ana Arts Council welcomes local artists to exhibit in the El Paso Electric Gallery in the lobby of the Rio Grande Theatre. Regular exhibit hours are 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. For more information, or to book an exhibit, call the Arts Council offices during regular working hours.
The Rio Grande Theatre is located at 211 N. Main Street, Las Cruces, New Mexico, and is managed by the Doña Ana Arts Council. The theatre box office and Doña Ana Arts Council office are on the second floor of the theatre. Box office hours are 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, and one hour prior to show time.
Although we provide the utmost luxury at Sonoma Palms Apartments in Las Cruces, New Mexico, we realize that you need to get out and socialize with those in your surrounding community. This event gives you the chance to do just that! Don’t hesitate to attend today!
