    I'm pleased to announce a new outlet for my work at Big Horn Gallery in Tubac, Arizona, a small art community south of Tucson. As a former resident of Arizona, I am familiar with the beauty of the Sonoran desert, although the Tubac/Green Valley area is new to me. BigHorn Gallery can be found at:

    I am also honored to have been elected president of Plein Air Painters of New Mexico for 2017.

    Damien Gonzales 'starred' in a film shoot in Old Town of "Galileo" (the working title) by L.A. based director Jay Silverman who is behind the camera. "Other extras and I played various villager roles with me being a plein air artist. The movie is a romantic comedy loosely based on one of the heirs to the Taco Bell fortune falling for a woman chef in a small hypothetical town named Villa Nueva. Filming was done in Taos, Santa Fe, Albuquerque and San Miguel de Allende, Mexico."
