s(and) is a collective of professional women artists residing in Albuquerque, NM, who come together to exchange ideas and methods of sustainable art practices.

The Collective is based on ideals that each member contributes valuable and unique artistic qualities in the pursuit of collaborative exhibitions and provides support of personal and professional development as a community of art makers.

The Collective’s name evokes the idea of sand as a rock in transition – grains of sand come together and are cemented in time only to transition back again ~ a metaphor of returning back to your origin, as well as, being a part of a greater whole.
