Had the pleasure of attending the New Mexorado show at the Harwood Museum in Taos this weekend. (Full disclosure: my wife, Marina Eckler, has work in the exhibition, which isn’t included here.) Envisioned by Art Curatorial Manager Jina Brenneman, former curator at the Sangre de Cristo Arts Center in Pueblo, and juried by Libby Lumpkin, art historian, curator, and professor of contemporary art history and art theory at University of New Mexico, Albuquerque, the show elegantly and subtly reasserts the historical Front Range connection between the Taos colony and Broadmoor Academy during their heydays in the early half of the 20th Century. Local artists Jean Gumpper, Margaret Kasahara, Pard Morrison and Jeff Brown are among the artists represented from the Pikes Peak region.

The show runs through June 19 and complete information can be found HERE.
