Light Art Space/Karen Hymer


Light Art Space/Karen Hymer is a visual artist originally from Tucson. She relocated to New Mexico in 2018 to open Light Art Space in historic downtown Silver City. Although “trained” as a photographer and educator, Hymer’s approach to image making explores the blending of photosensitive materials, digital media and printmaking. She is fascinated with how the passage of time affects the human body and other natural elements in the world. Hymer taught photography for more than 25 years at Pima Community College in Tucson. She currently offers workshops and private sessions in photopolymer gravure, digital printing and alternative photographic processes at her studio, a dynamic, contemporary art space which explores diverse perspectives and ideas through juried and curated art exhibitions, workshops and other events. With the discriminating collector in mind, the gallery features unique photography, printmaking and other media by Hymer. Websites: and
