Alcoves 2020 #2

ON DISPLAY AUGUST 10, 2019 - AUGUST 16, 2020

On display through Dec 15, 2019 at the New Mexico Museum of Art

The alcove shows continue the tradition began in 1917 of exhibiting works made by living artists.  These small, one-person exhibitions, called alcoves, were held in the original gallery space through the 1950s, resuming in the mid-1980s and again in the early 1990s and 2012. Alcoves 2020 continues this tradition with a series of exhibitions featuring the work of artists living in New Mexico right now. These artist-centered showcases feature new ideas, artists at all stages of their careers and artwork that is being made by artists from across New Mexico.
