With only a couple days left before I depart, I used this past week to make the rounds of some of the galleries, which resulted in a few more “too good to pass up” moments. Now have works from a young native grafitti/silkscreen artist, SABA (who got my house tour today and is inspired to pick up watercolours in near future), as well as my Las Cruces watercolor “gods”: Robert Highsmith and Nancy Frost Begin. I am sure more to come my way from all three as finances allow.
With SABA in the West End Art Depot, in front of one of his murals, and his silkscreen of “Traditions” reflecting the merger of hip-hop and graffiti artist symbols with traditional Pueblo kachina doll forms.
Robert Highsmith’s small watercolor “Dona Anas from the North”, mountains I often hike in. Here it is on the wall with my other watercolor artist friends’ work.
Nancy Frost Begin’s hand colored woodcut, “Southwest Box Turtle”, and in its new home on my Living Room wall.
