The New Mexico Museum of Art to host a year-long cycle of alcove exhibitions

Alcove Shows 12.0 to highlight artwork being made in New Mexico right now

When this museum was established in 1917 the building was designed and built in a style to celebrate the historic qualities of the state. The institution itself was created to exhibit artwork contemporary to the time. Many of the artworks and artists who exhibited at that time now form the historic core of our permanent collection.

To celebrate the 100th anniversary of New Mexico’s statehood, and in anticipation of the New Mexico Museum of Art’s centennial, we are presenting a year-long cycle of alcove exhibitions. The format of these Alcove Shows can be traced back to the 1917 founding of the Art Gallery of the Museum of New Mexico. Small one-person exhibitions were held in the gallery alcoves through the 1950s, resuming in the mid-1980s and again in the early 1990s.

The museum is continuing this tradition with a cycle of nine exhibitions that will include forty-five artists from across the state. Five artists will exhibit for five weeks at a time from March of 2012 through early April of 2013. These artist-centered showcases feature new ideas, artists at all stages of their careers and artwork that is being made in New Mexico right now.

Alcove 12.1 will feature the art of Julia Barello, David Forlano, Jane Lackey, Ted Larsen, and Linda Swanson and will be on exhibition from March 23- April 29, 2012.

Alcove 12.2 will feature the art of Steve Fitch, Harmony Hammond, Terri Rolland, Robert M. Ellis, and August Muth and will be on exhibition from May 4- June 10, 2012.

Alcove 12.3 will feature the art of Susan Dopp, Michael Edge, Miguel Gandert, Rebekah Potter, and Todd Volz and will be on exhibition from June 15- July 29, 2012.

Alcove 12.4 will feature the art of Lucrecia Troncoso, Nancy Sutor, Paula Castillo, Nancy Judd, and Will Wilson and will be on exhibition from August 3- September 9, 2012.

Alcove 12.5 will feature the art of Tom Miller, Louis Schalk, Scuba (Sandra Wang and Crockett Bodelson), Toadhouse, and Susan York and will be on exhibition from September 14- October 21, 2012.

Alcove 12.6 will feature the art of Kate Carr, Michael Borowski, Lawrence Fodor, Karina Hean and Ellen Babcock and will be on exhibition from October 26- December 2, 2012.

Alcove 12.7 will feature the art of Marc Baseman, Matthew Chase-Daniel, Eric Garduno, Jeanette Pasin Sloan, and Jared Weiss and will be on exhibition from December 7, 2012 – January 13, 2013.

Alcove 12.8 will feature the art of Susanna Carlisle and Bruce Hamilton, Yoshiko Shimano, Cristina González, Diane Tintor, and Cedra Wood, and will be on exhibition from January 18 – February 24, 2013.

Alcove 12.9 will feature the art of Jeff Deemie, Teri Greeves, Joanne Lefrak, James Marshal, and Mary Tsiongas, and will be on exhibition from March 1 – April 7, 2013.
