Money has been a part of our global society for over 3,000 years. What started as a barter system became standardized through the medium of currency, whose function is the indirect trading of wealth. Money (or currency), at its most basic function, is the mechanism which facilitates the process of trade. 

Historically, the first coin ever minted featured a roaring lion. The first known currency was created by King Alyattes in Lydia (now Turkey) in 600BC. Whether it be glass beads, clay tokens, cowrie shells, paper bills or metal shekels, currency worldwide has sought to standardize the process of monetary exchange for societies. 


Inherent in this system is the symbolism, design and value of money in these societies. “Exchange Rate” seeks to investigate the role of currency in society and how the design and imagery of money reflects the cultural values of the society it serves. 


Artists are asked to consider the following: 

  • Are these cultural values expressed in the design of currency real, ideal or fabricated? 

  • How do world powers leverage and promote the influence of their national currency on the international market? 

  • What is a “gold standard”? 

  • What are the factors that value the yen over the pound over the dollar? 

  • How will digital currency exchanges (PayPal, Square, BitCoin, Venmo) change money? 

  • How does counterfeiting impact the technical design and production of currency?

  • What are the most intriguing currencies in history?

  • And, NFT’s…

The Community Gallery promotes and exhibits the work of New Mexico artists and artisans, with emphasis on Santa Fe, through exhibitions, professional training and community involvement in the arts. For more information about the Community Gallery, visit or call 505-955-6707.

Roswell Artist-in-Residence Program

Well known by visual artists as the "Gift of Time", the Roswell Artist-in-Residence Program was established in 1967 to provide gifted studio-based visual artists with the unique opportunity to concentrate on their work in a supportive, collegial environment for an entire year. This gift of time allows artists to work without distraction in an effort to break new ground and focus on individual goals. The Roswell Artist-in-Residence Program’s interest is in strengthening the vitality of the visual art in New Mexico and has been a catalyst in broadening community understanding of contemporary art for over fifty years.


Professional visual artists 21 years of age or older, involved in painting, drawing, sculpture, printmaking, photography, video, digital media and installation are invited to apply. Grants are not made in the disciplines of performance art, writing, music or production crafts.


The studios are large, open spaces that measure approximately 30 'x 25 'x 10'. These areas are well-lighted and convertible to the artist's requirements. Artists are housed in a complex of six houses and 8 studios located on fifty acres of land. Each artist is provided with a house that can amply accommodate either a single person or a family. Rent, utilities (except telephone), repairs and maintenance costs are borne by the Program. Houses are furnished with major furniture items, appliances, and utensils within reason. The compound also has specialty workshops: printmaking studio (stone litho/etching), digital media room, woodshop, welding shop, and ceramics studio. Residents have full use of these facilities and are expected to help maintain them.


A stipend of $1100 per month is offered along with $100 for a spouse/partner living with the grantee. An additional $100 stipend for each child living with the grantee is provided by the Sustainable Arts Foundation.

An additional stipend of $250 per month for artists' materials has been generously provided by the Fredrick Hammersley Foundation.     March Deadline
