Lux Art Institute is pleased to present the Artists-in-Residence for its 13th season. Our Artists-in-Residence are chosen not only for the quality of their craft, but because that craft evolves from the conceptual intention of the work. In Season 13, the residency artists touch on important themes such as black female empowerment, equality, justice, spirituality, LGBTQ rights, community building, environmental awareness, and the body.
Lux Art Institute is redefining the museum experience to make art more accessible and personally meaningful. At Lux, you don’t just see finished works of art; you see the artistic process firsthand, observing internationally recognized artists in a working studio environment.
Lux Art Institute is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
Thursday and Friday: 1:00pm–5:00pm
Monday through Friday: 9:00am–5:00pm

Judy Tuwaletstiwa's work is about healing through a diversity of mediums, storytelling, and language. She engages in a practice that is rooted in deep reflection and the lives lived outside of our own experience. Diving into the details of meaning and origins, Tuwaletstiwa’s work is about stories, considering how language, both visual and literary, build understanding and ultimately a road to healing, dealing with trauma, and finding beauty. Tuwaletstiwa’s medium centers around transition; clay becomes ceramic, sand transforms to glass, and objects come alive as she builds tools to deal with the sorrows and joys thrown on the path of life. Tuwaletstiwa was born in Los Angeles, CA, received her B.A. in English Literature from the University of California, Berkeley and M.A.T. in English Literature from Harvard University. Now located in Galisteo, NM, she has participated in residencies all across the United States and is in collections at the Corning Museum of Glass, New York, NY; Museum of Fine Arts, Santa Fe, NM; and the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library, American Literature Collection at Yale university. She has shown at the Center for Contemporary Arts Santa Fe in Sante Fe, NM; Bullseye Projects in Portland, OR; William Siegal Gallery in Santa Fe, NM; and New Mexico Museum of Art, Santa Fe, NM.

Working and living together as partners in Buenos Aires, Argentina Leo Chiachio & Daniel Giannone both trained as painters and now use threads and fabric as their painterly medium to create hand embroidery and textile mosaics as they “paint with needles”. Their embroidery is a celebration of the family portrait, using themselves and their dogs as the subjects they find new and imaginative ways of depicting themselves, filled with humor and fantasy, as they consider the changing concepts around family. Chiachio & Gianonne’s textile mosaics are references to LGBTQ artists and their legacy in Latin America. Chiachio & Giannone recently completed a residency at the Museum of Latin American Art in Long Beach, CA and have shown at Chamber Gallery, New York, NY; Bernice Steinbaum Gallery, Miami, FL; the Boston Center for the Arts, Boston, MA; and the Maryland Institute College of Art, Baltimore, MD. They have also shown extensively all over the world, including Argentina, China, France, Italy, Mexico, the Philippines, United Kingdom, and the Netherlands. Chiachio & Giannone will be Lux’s first artist collective.
