New Mexican Hispano Arts Dialogue / 2nd Saturday at Casa San Ysidro
New Mexico is home to a vibrant community of artists and also draws national and international art collectors. In the context of the Albuquerque Museum’s exhibit on Mabel Dodge Luhan, Casa San Ysidro is hosting a conversation between experienced and emerging artists. Our conversation will focus on the tension between creativity and consumption in a global marketplace.
What strategies have artists employed to express their personal vision while responding to consumer expectations? Their decisions have made New Mexico a vanguard source of inspiration for local and regional artistic creation.
Carmella Padilla, who has written extensively about New Mexico Hispano art and artists, will introduce a panel of four master artists who will speak about their professional trajectories and will welcome questions from the panel participants will welcome questions from other artists and the public. Panel participants are Reyes Padilla, Cristina González, and Damian Velasquez. This event is free and open to the public. Come and experience a vital conversation in one of New Mexico’s premiere artistic communities.
Admission is free between 1 and 4 p.m. Visitors are invited to this exciting public talk and to view the Minge collection of early New Mexican furnishings and tools.
Casa San Ysidro is located at 973 Old Church Rd in the historic Village of Corrales. For more information call (505) 898-3915.
