The latest installment of the 18th annual Fine Art Show via MasterWorks New Mexico is just days away. Find out who the featured makers are and highlights of the exhibition here.
New Mexico has a storied reputation for harboring some of the best Western American artists over the past two centuries. MasterWorks New Mexico has taken advantage of this fact for 18 years — offering an exclusive juried exhibition for residents of the “Land of Enchantment.” The organization is a collaboration among four arts groups: New Mexico Pastel Society, Watercolor Society of New Mexico, Rio Grande Art Association, and Miniatures Bardean. With this in mind, the show is sure to feature the best mediums, styles, and techniques from a host of accomplished artists.
2016’s “18th Annual Fine Art Show” opens on April 2 to great anticipation. Cash and prizes valued at over $9,000 will be awarded to the most deserving artists as well. In addition to the aforementioned exhibition, the organization has created a series of events in connection. Friday, April 1, will see the opening reception and awards ceremony. Pastel artist Casey Klahn will offer a demo on April 7, as well as a three-day workshop beginning April 6. Demos by Nancy Baldrica and Krysteen Waszak are slated for April 16 and April 23, respectively. To get the full schedule and details, visit here.
