Poster Release Party 2018
January 26 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
The official commemorative poster for the 2018 Las Cruces International Film Festival (LCIFF), created this year by artist and photographer Mike Groves, will be revealed at a party on Friday, January 26 from 6 to 8 pm at Cutter Gallery, 2640 El Paseo Rd, Las Cruces.
The public is invited to attend and admission to the event is $25 which includes refreshments, a signed copy of the poster, and the opportunity to purchase VIP tickets to the Film Festival at a reduced price at the poster party.
The poster’s creator, artist Mike Groves is best known for his awe-inspiring landscapes of the Organ Mountains, White Sands, and the Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge, his favorite haunts. A native New Mexican, Groves has lived in Las Cruces since 1953. In high school, he became interested in photography and took his first sunset photos. Although he never had formal training in photography, he had a good eye for it. He studied and experimented while in college and after. His interest was outdoor and scenic images although he won ribbons for his portrait and still life images as well as landscapes. As his skills developed so did his love of the local scenery, especially the Organ Mountains. He is particularly proud of his triptychs and panoramic images. He feels these better show off the expanse of the Mountains, White Sands, and other landscapes. His love of the area and its natural beauty is evident in his work.
According to the Film Festival’s Executive Director Ross Marks, “We are delighted to continue the tradition of LCIFF Commemorative Posters extraordinarily designed by local artists.”
