Spring Forward! A Celebration of 4 New Exhibitions
New Mexico Museum of Art, Friday, March 23, 2012, 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. Free
(SANTA FE) Join the celebration as the New Mexico Museum of Art opens four new exhibitions. Treasures Seldom Seen, Repeat After Me, Waterscapes, and Alcove 12.1 all open Free Friday Evening, March 23, 2012 from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. Artists, curators and docents will be on hand for conversation. Music will play throughout the building, and refreshments served.
Enjoy our new children’s corner in the exhibit Waterscapes, where kids of all ages can draw their own pictures of water and its creatures.
Treasures Seldom Seen shows representational paintings from the museum’s collection that defined mainstream New Mexico art almost a century ago. In addition, enjoy a new installation of works by, and about, Georgia O’Keeffe, and see another installation introducing the museum’s website, New Mexico Art Tells New Mexico History, a state-wide educational project.
Repeat After Me brings together work that relates to the repetition on two different levels, as process and as image. Seen are works by Garo Antreasian, Frederick Hammersley, Sol LeWitt and Marie Watt, among others.
Waterscapes highlights photographs of water in all its forms, from Ansel Adams’s photograph of Bridal Veil Falls in Yosemite, to Miguel Gandert’s image of kids in a water fountain in Albuquerque.
Alcove 21.1 is the first of a nine-part project when five new artists will be shown every five weeks. These artist-centered showcases feature new ideas, artists at all stages of their careers and artwork that is being made in New Mexico right now. First up are Julia Barello, Linda Swanson, Ted Larsen, Jane Lackey and David Forlano.
