Fort Hancock artist John MacKenzie considers his exhibit at Casa Ortiz a 'wonderful privilege,' especially since it might be the last at the revered Socorro, Texas, art gallery.An exodus of artists from the historic adobe building already has begun as business plans call for sweeping change.But on Friday, Borderland residents still can celebrate art at 10167 Socorro Road from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. as MacKenzie's work takes center stage. There will be a food truck and live music. The exhibit will run through the month.
