Artist’s Reception: Seasons of Enchantment: Painting the New Mexico Farm & Ranch
April 23 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
The talent of the New Mexico Watercolor Society will be on display in a new art show at the New Mexico Farm & Ranch Heritage Museum.
“Seasons of Enchantment: Painting the New Mexico Farm and Ranch” features 28 works of art by members of the society. An opening reception is planned for 12 to 2 p.m. on April 23.
These watercolor paintings celebrate the daily life of New Mexico farmers and ranchers and their families, evoking a sense of time and place. They elevate the ordinary to extraordinary and reflect the wonder of the landscape and its people.
The paintings include rural landscapes, livestock, farming and ranching scenes, and wildlife.
Watercolors from members of both the Albuquerque and Las Cruces chapters of the New Mexico Watercolor Society have been selected by Juror Lynn McLain, AWS, NWS. The Society honors and celebrates the medium of watercolor through the support of highest aesthetic standards, education of the public, promotion of community engagement, and facilitation of member development. The Albuquerque chapter began in 1969 and the Southern Chapter celebrates its 20th anniversary this year.
The show features paintings by John Glass, Laurel Weathersbee, Barbara McGuire, Susan Davis, Patricia Black, Jay Leutwyler, Junko Nakao, Robert Highsmith, Richard Harris, Penny Thomas Simpson, Tina Little, Dorian Clouser, Tom Cassidy, Mark Cirzan, Dave Cook, Tina Stallard, Rachel Murphree, Bonnie Deming, Rebecca A.
