April 5 — Talkington Art Gallery Inaugural Exhibition
AZnNMnTX — 20th and 21st Century Art in Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona, Talkington Art Gallery. An “Up from the Basement” exhibition from the Museum’s Art Collection. The Talkington Gallery features selections from 20th and 21st century art of the southwestern United States. This region ranges from scorching deserts, broad horizontal vistas, near bottomless canyons, rugged mountain ranges to rich but rare river valleys, in Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and portions of Colorado and Utah. No one type of landscape represents the Southwest and, similarly, no singular art style defines it. The art works on exhibit sample many divergent paths that artists from the Southwest have followed, from realism to romanticism, from impressionism to expressionism, from minimalism to conceptualism, and more. All of the works on exhibit are from the collections of the Museum.
Museum galleries are free and open to public.
