Congratulations PAPA Artists

Congratulations to Leslie Bello Garcia and Daniela Basista! Their art was selected in a very highly

competitive exhibition and competition for The University of New Mexico’s Art Education Department/

Young Artist Exhibition.


This year jurors reviewed over 260 entries: Due to finite space in the gallery, they can only exhibit around 85 works; which constitutes a 30% acceptance rate… and classifies the UNM Young Artist Exhibition as a ‘highly’ to ‘extremely selective’ art exhibition.


You are all invited to attend the art opening and award ceremony at UNM’s Masley Gallery on December 11,

2019 from 6-8 pm. The event is FREE. Please come help support PAPA artists!


Well done, Leslie and Daniela!
