Harwood Museum Store featuring Carlos Rael

Support art in New Mexico by supporting artists from New Mexico. At the Harwood Museum store, find these lovely retablos by Taos artist Carlos Rael.

This traditional Santero art form found in Northern New Mexico was inspired after the colonization of the Southwest by the Spanish

Carlos uses homemade gesso on board, processes mineral and organic pigments from the soils and plants of New Mexico - and finishes pieces with piñon sap.

As our ‘In the Sliver of the Sun’ exhibition nears its end, we’re excited to announce that we’ve produced an art book on Maja Ruznic! Bosnian-born Ruznic presents out-of-focus, ghostly figures that express the nostalgia and trauma of her war-torn upbringing.

The book gathers together her ritualistic paintings and is finally available for preorder through @artbook. The former editor of @artforum, Annie Godfrey Larmon, wrote:

‘Ruznic develops surfaces from which compositions of figures are coaxed out, as if alchemically.’

Agnes' Peaches

It is said Agnes Martin loved peaches. That is one of the reasons that we call the lovely peach tree in our back garden Agnes' tree. Happily, we've got another bumper crop this year.

The Harwood has a long history with Agnes Martin, including our world famous Agnes Martin Gallery which is on permanent display.

And...if you are a Martin fan, NOW is the time to visit. Nearly every Agnes Martin piece in our collection is currently on display in a second gallery.

You can also visit Agnes Martin's work online at https://harwoodmuseum.org/art/collections/agnes-martin/

Greetings! Are you going to be streaming your time with Patricia Michaels on this, your FB page? Thank You!
Why don't you open the museum? The Milicent Rogers Museum is open.
You might consider opening your gift store online for xmas shopping. I would love to shop there for local gifts.
Trying to see Brian's interview but can't find it.
We have raised $8622. If we can reach $9,000, we can give $200 to each of the artists in the Harwood summer exhibitions! Remember all money raised goes back to the artists! Please support our creative force. Campaign ends tomorrow at midnight! http://harwoodmuseum.org/artistfund
This piece from my home was painted by our friend, musician, teacher and artist Bobby Schaub in 2002. When we moved from the Redwoods to Taos he insisted that we take this painting with us - of course we did not object. It hangs lovingly in our dining room.
Grateful to have strong cultural leaders in Taos to share the path with as we re-emerge with creativity at our center, as always.
So glad to have such a great cohort of cultural leaders in Taos.
Harwood is very SPECIAL. I have visited many times. BRAVO!!!!!!
A little Halloween fun with staff members at the #HarwoodMuseum today.
#UNM-#Taos' Sarah Stolar is featured in the New Mexico Museum of Art Alcoves Show opening on Friday. So glad to have her in our community.
I'm so looking forward to this amazing TCMG concert ...!!
