A native of Albuquerque and a long-time supporter of the arts, Regina managed the Arts Program of the Albuquerque International Sunport for seven years, then transferred to the City of Albuquerque Economic Development Department where she focused on arts and cultural economic development and small business incentives. In 2007, she formed her consultance, Cultural Econ, planning cultural tourism and economic strategies for communities. She recently accepted the position of Executive Director of the newly transformed Creative Albuquerque, a non-profit whose mission is to grow the creative economy through education, information, advocacy and leadership.

As a service to the creative community, Creative Albuquerque offers creative classified listings. Organizations, museums, galleries, venues, attractions and individuals are invited to submit to and utilize this community resource. It is free and open to all local creatives.

Regina will be speaking to us following the business meeting on Monday, September 13th (note the date...due to the Labor Day weekend the meeting is delayed one week). The meeting begins at 6:30pm. It will be held at the Destiny Center in Rio Rancho...4401 Northern Blvd NE. Afterward, there will be time for venue sign-up, refreshments and chatting. The public is welcome to join us!

Mike Mahon Portrait Workshop Sept. 14-16, 2010

I've had some requests for a portrait workshop this September, so I've set one up for September 14-16 here in Santa Fe. You can find out more about the workshop by downloading the following:

There is a $50 discount to any member of the RRAA or the PSNM that registers for this portrait workshop. Since there is such a short notice for this workshop, I thought I'd make it a little easier to register for members of organizations of which I'm a member.

Here are some photos from a portrait demo I did at my portrait workshop this June in Amarillo, Texas.
