It seems like New Mexico Museum of Art always manages to put together the best exhibits. In 1986 I saw one of my favorite-ever exhibits of paintings, an exhibit called Empowered Painting, which featured works by painters of the likes of Fritz Scholder and Holly Roberts, one of the best assemblies of paintings outside the top floor of Musee d’Orsay in Paris. Now there’s an exhibit that combines two of my favorite things – photography and peoples’ connection to the landscape. Earth Now runs through October 9. Makes me wish Santa Fe was still only a six-hour drive away.
