On Exhibit Until JANUARY 31

 Since the last half of the 19th century, East and West Coast artists as well as European artists have been attracted to New Mexico, joining Native Americans already here to appreciate the unique New Mexico landscape and light.

A new exhibit at Cow Trail Art Studio focuses on the original etchings, drawings, and lithographs of nine of the artists. Some were permanent New Mexico residents; others came just for the summer. Only one early artist was born here and returned after study in Pennsylvania. The artists include Will Schuster, Charles Dahlgreen, Gustave Baumann, Birger Sandzen, Peter Hurd, Earle Loran, Eric Gibberd, Garo Antresian, and Fritz Scholder.

Some of the prints were created around the time New Mexico gained statehood status, some in the mid 20th century, and two of the prints are considered to be in a contemporary style. They are a portion of a collection I enjoy sharing with visitors during regular studio hours. ( M.Thurs.F. Sat. from noon until 3)

Small groups are welcome and free print lectures can be arranged. Contact me via email at
