Selected from the Museum’s permanent collection, the works featured in this exhibit are rotated on a regular basis to emphasize the depth of the RMAC’s holdings, as well as explore diverse perspectives on the land that has captured the imagination of New Mexico-based artists for several generations.
These paintings and sculptures reveal how individuals have related to
their immediate surroundings and how the development of their aesthetic
responds to experiences that are specific to time and place. Each work
in the exhibition holds a wealth of information that is capable of
awakening a deeper consciousness within the mind of those who stand
before them, which in turn provides an even broader appreciation of the
how artists throughout the 20th century have rendered the diversity of
New Mexico’s multi-faceted environment.
