Built in 1994, the Henderson Fine Arts Center featured many new additions to the San Juan College campus including an art wing that features the Gallery Space now used today. The Henderson Fine Arts Gallery hosts shows with artists from the surrounding community and several artists throughout the four corners region. The Gallery seeks to integrate works of art into our everyday experience by bringing in diverse work for the enjoyment and education of our students and community.

Plein Air Painters of the Four Corners
May 5-26 2017
Plein Air Here and There will feature paintings from the various artists of the Plein Air Painters of the Four Corners. The term “Plein Air” is used to refer to painting done outside on location instead of in the studio. Painting done outdoors allows for direct observation in capturing light, shadow and color as well as the challenges of nature. Paint excursions of the Plein Air Painters lead here, to various park locations in the Southwest such as Mesa Verde, Monument Valley and Chanyon de Chelly. As well as there, to locations as far as the Bahamas.
The Plein Air Painters of the Four Corners: The mission of our group is to foster a congenial and helpful atmosphere among plein air painters which will improve and hone our painting skills, help each member realize his/her potential as an artist, and thereby heighten the enjoyment of our craft, and to depict and promote the beauty of the Four Corners Region.
