Join the New Mexico Musuem of Art as we celebrate two new exhibitions about influential artists who lived in New Mexico.
Patrick Nagatani: Invented Realities honors the longtime University of New Mexico faculty member’s body of innovative photography and his influence on other artists. This survey across Nagatani’s rich career, drawn primarily from the New Mexico Museum of Art’s extensive holdings, concentrates on the artist’s creative process and use of visual storytelling.
Frederick Hammersley: To Paint without Thinking showcases the American artist’s systematic process he used to create his lively hard-edge geometric paintings. The artist lived in New Mexico from 1968 until his death in 2009, and includes works from New Mexico Museum of Art’s collection as well as those from The Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens.
Reception hosted by Women’s Board 5:00 to 6:00 in Museum lobby. Galleries open free to all from 5:00 to 7:00 pm.
