When Kimberly Finder, M.D., first decided to become a doctor, her present subspecialty didn’t even exist.

Artist, Scholar, Curator: Connie Lowe

Once in a while artist Constance “Connie” Lowe takes a break from her own work to assume the curatorial role. Such was the case recently when she agreed to serve as curator for Magnetic Fields, a show opening March 10 as the Southwest School of Art’s contribution to Contemporary Art Month.
