For the eighth year, the Albuquerque Art Business Association is honoring area artists who not only excel in the arts, but who have given back to their communities. By sharing their time, talent and passion, they help give birth to the next generation of art lovers and artists and sustain the hope that New Mexico will continue to be home to thousands of working artists for many years to come.

The awards ceremony takes place at the Albuquerque Museum of Art and History on Sunday, September 6 at 1:00pm and is open to the public.
