Conversations in Painting, Early 20th Century to Post-War American Art

Oct 29, 2016 - Apr 30, 2017
Conversations in Painting, Early 20th Century to Post-War American Art
New Mexico Museum of Art

An exhibition centered around painting movements in 20th Century America, beginning with Robert Henri , Portrait of Dieguito Roybal, San Ildefonso Pueblo and ending with Agnes Martin, Untitled #6. Between those two benchmarks we explore the evolution of abstraction, federal support for art and artists during the Depression Era, the Transcendental Painting Group, Abstract Expressionism, Hard Edge Painting and Minimalism through paintings from the New Mexico Museum of Art collection. Juxtaposition is used to promote a dialogue both within and between these painting movements to encourage a more individual and intuitive appreciation of the individual paintings by the viewer.

Artists included will be Robert Henri, John Sloan, Gene Kloss, Florence Pierce, Raymond Jonson, Frederick Hammersley, Agnes Martin, Han Hoffman and Mala Breuer.

Out of the Box: The Art of the Cigar

Oct 14, 2016 - Oct 14, 2017
Out of the Box: The Art of the Cigar
New Mexico History Museum

From the 1880s into the early 20th century, cigar manufacturers provided an avenue for the lithographic arts to flourish. Layering up to 10 colors in a stone-lithography process and even adding gold embellishments and stamped embossings, the images sold cigars through romantic landscapes, Western adventures, and hot-blooded señoritas. In Out of the Box: The Art of the Cigar, opening Oct. 7, 2016 (precise closing date to be determined), Palace Press Curator Thomas Leech shares primo examples to showcase the rich breadth of artwork created during the golden age of cigar box labels.

Agnes Martin and Me

Aug 5, 2016 - Aug 5, 2017
Agnes Martin and Me
New Mexico History Museum

Shrouded in myth, the artist Agnes Martin (1912-2004), an iconic figure in 20th-century art, was emotionally and artistically tortured, exquisitely sensitive yet socially inept. Canadian born, she started to make a name for herself in the New York art scene in the late 1950s and early 1960s, but in 1967, abandoned her career for a reclusive life in the New Mexico desert. She did not return to her work for nearly a decade.

Several years after she began creating art again, photographer Donald Woodman met her and remained a fixture in her life from 1977 through 1984. In Agnes Martin and Me, an exhibit opening August 5 at the New Mexico History Museum (precise closing date to be determined), Woodman shares his photographs of their time together. The exhibit accompanies his new book, Agnes Martin and Me (Lyon Art Books; May 2016), which reveals the raw, unveiled person he knew in the seven rollercoaster years of their constant contact.

Setting the Standard: The Fred Harvey Company and Its Legacy

Long Term Exhibition
Setting the Standard: The Fred Harvey Company and Its Legacy
New Mexico History Museum

Will Rogers noted that Fred Harvey “kept the West in food—and wives.” But the company’s Harvey Girls are by no means its only legacy. From the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway’s 1879 arrival in New Mexico to the 1970 demolition of Albuquerque’s Alvarado Hotel, the Fred Harvey name and its company’s influence have been felt across New Mexico, not to mention the American West. The company and its New Mexico establishments served as the stage on which people such as Mary Colter were able to fashion an “authentic” tourist experience, along with Herman Schweizer who helped drive the direction of Native American jewelry and crafts as an industry.

Setting the Standard: The Fred Harvey Company and Its Legacy, a new section that joins the New Mexico History Museum’s main exhibit, Telling New Mexico: Stories from Then and Now, helps tell those stories. Opening December 7, Setting the Standard uses artifacts from the museum’s collection, images from the Palace of the Governors Photo Archives and loans from other museums and private collectors. Focusing on the rise of the Fred Harvey Company as a family business and events that transpired specifically in the Land of Enchantment, the tale will leave visitors with an understanding of how the Harvey experience resonates in our Southwest today.
