Allyson Packer

Allyson Packer; fellow artist and friend, is having an upcoming exhibition of her work in Albuquerque, NM at the Harwood Art Center; I wanted to take a moment and offer her my support.

Allyson Packer works in a variety of media, taking subject matter from her own life and using it to examine the human need to seek out structure and understand our place within it. She received her BFA from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill and has shown nationally in Maryland, Minnesota, and New Mexico. She was the recipient of the Harwood Art Center's 2010 Crissey Emerging Artist Fellowship and has been named a 2011 fellow at the McColl Center for Visual Art in Charlotte, NC.

Her upcoming exhibition, "As Much as I Can Carry: Personal Plans for Survival," the artist creates installations reflecting on her experiences surrounding time she spent living in New Mexico. Using the theme of survivalism in the desert, her artwork tells the story of an individual searching for meaning in a desolate environment. Serving as a site for the projection of an internal conflict, the desert reveals both the conscious desire for autonomy and subconscious desire for comfort and inclusion.
