Well it’s more than a week since I was standing in the Albuquerque Museum of Art and I’m not entirely sure what happened to that week but it certainly appeared to involve a lot of attention span ‘issues’, and a degree of laying down. With only another 2 weeks until I go away again, I seem to be filling my time with neglected practical tasks.
A mate said ‘this is thinking time’. And it does feel needed. But I am really looking forward to getting stuck into things from Christmas on, as I’ll return on Dec 21.
Today is a trip to the big town and I’ll get to meet up with the BRAG team which will be a highlight.
I saw some great exhibitions at the Museum on my last day in AlbQ, some works on paper including this piece by Reihord V. Whitt-Pritchette, and a permanent exhibition “Common Ground. Art in New Mexico”. I also came across an artist there and in another section, called Kevin Tolman, and really loved his pieces.
This piece of his, ‘Flow/Rapid II’ was part of a show the Museum held called “Miniatures and More”. This is an invited small works show they have held each year for 23 years and was a really interesting idea. Each artist submitted 3 or so works, all for sale, to help fundraise for the gallery, and to show the local/state works. It was a real mixed bag, and a great hanging.
