MasterWorks of New Mexico Free Spring Art Show and Events
The MasterWorks of New Mexico Spring Art Show returns for its 15th season, and admission is free, including arts demos and events.
MasterWorks of New Mexico at EXPO New Mexico combines four state-wide juried fine art shows from Pastel Society of New Mexico, the New Mexico Watercolor Society, Miniature Arts Bardean, and the Rio Grande Art Association. All the works are by New Mexico artists and it’s a free exhibit, so let’s get out there and see what they’ve got to share with us, and possibly buy some art, depending on your budget.
The show opens with a free reception, awards ceremony and a chance to meet the artists on Friday April 5 from 5 – 8pm. Then it remains open for public viewing until April 27, 2013.
Along the way, free MasterWorks of New Mexico eventsinclude:
- April 8: Oil painting demonstration by Frank Lalumia from 9:30 – 11 am
- April 14: Open House Paint-In from noon to 4 pm, where any artist (even if you’re not in the show) can turn up with your own supplies to sketch, paint, or sculpt together, with still life displays and models provided. I LOVE seeing artists at work!
- April 17: Watercolor Demo by Penny Thomas-Simpson from 9:30 – 10:30 am
- April 21: Pastel Demo by Dawn Emerson from 9:30 – 11 am
