“I have always been profoundly responsive to color and the sensations color can provoke. My work has been described as an artistic oxymoron: both loud and quiet, solid and transparent, hand-made and precise, delicate and aggressive, exuberant and restrained, formal and emotional. It is a reflection of me, an artist of blended culture who is both loud and quiet, urban and rural, delicate and aggressive, masculine and feminine, adventurous and routine," said Pack

​I was born in the stormy seaside of rural northwest Oregon and lived on the West Coast for most of my life. I now reside in the sparse arid beauty of southwest New Mexico. I miss the ocean, but find solace in the high desert.”

Saturday, November 17, AT 1 p.m.

Near Mile Marker 132, east side of U.S. Hwy 180, just south of the Grant County Airport turnoff.

As a historical refresher, Mangas Coloradas (Spanish for "Red Sleeves"), was the dominant leader of the Apache bands in the southwestern region of New Mexico for several decades in the early to mid 1800s.  He was recognized by friend and foe alike as a great war leader, strategist, political leader, and dynamic personality. In January of 1863, he was lured to a parley in the mining camp of Pinos Altos by soldiers and scouts of the California Column, a Union military force that had arrived in New Mexico the previous year.

A  war between the Apaches and the white settlers had been raging throughout the Southwest since early 1861, and the commander of the California Column, General James Carleton, had issued orders to his officers to locate Mangas Coloradas, and through whatever means necessary, "deal with him in a final manner."
