New Mex­ico High­lands Univer­sity, Kennedy Alumni Hall, 905 Univer­sity Ave., Las Ve­gas, 505-425-7511 The fifth an­nual In­vi­ta­tional Painters Ex­hi­bi­tion con­tin­ues through Sept. 28 be­fore trav­el­ing to Santa Fe, when it goes on view at the Santa Fe County Ad­min­is­tra­tion Build­ing (102 Grant Ave.) in Oc­to­ber. The sur­vey of works by con­tem­po­rary North­ern New Mex­ico painters started as a pro­gram un­der Dr. Robert Bell, a Las Ve­gas oph­thal­mol­o­gist and long­time col­lec­tor and pa­tron of the arts. Bell, along with his wife Ster­ling Puck, has do­nated more than 500 paint­ings to High­lands’ art col­lec­tion. “I’ve al­ways en­vi­sioned that this an­nual painters ex­hi­bi­tion at High­lands would have more than one venue,” Bell said. The show is cu­rated by High­lands Foun­da­tion art cu­ra­tor Re­nee Buchanan. This year marks the first time it trav­els to Santa Fe. The Santa Fe show­ing in­cludes an open­ing re­cep­tion on Oct. 14 at 5 p.m.
