The City of Albuquerque Parks & Recreation Department's Open Space Visitor Center and Plein Air Painters of New Mexico present "Enchanted Lands: Celebrating New Mexico Public Lands."

This Art exhibit featuring plein-air paintings of New Mexico public lands.

It is difficult to argue with the state's motto "Land of Enchantment" when traveling New Mexico. Alpine ridges dive into deep gorges, cool cottonwood forests dissolve into hot plateaus, and mesas showing the stories of New Mexico through the many geologic layers.

New Mexico's landscape is dramatic and its beauty can't be denied. Fortunately, millions of acres of these soaring landscapes are within the public domain and accessible for our enjoyment.

A Celebration

In celebration of New Mexico's unique landscapes and in recognition of National Public Lands Day, taking place Sept. 27, and the 50th anniversary of the Wilderness Act, Plein Air Painters of New Mexico (PAPNM) is curating a special plein-air exhibit featuring New Mexico public lands.
