Juried into Self Portrait Exhibit, Encore Gallery, Taos Center for the Arts
Memories of Time Past, a monotype with charcoal and oil embellishments juried into the Self Portrait exhibit, is on display in the Encore Gallery of the Taos Center for the Arts in downtown Taos. Each piece in the exhibit was to executed in monochromatic hues.
As a very young child, I fell in love with the mystique of cultures left in ruins for one reason or another. I often wondered how the people lived, why their cultures no longer endured, and what happened to the cultures as they faded away. So many questions with so few answers. I still ponder the same questions as I wonder what life as an archaeologist or an anthropologist might have been like. It was not to be my career track in life, but I have concluded after many years that the dusts of lives past are a part of my DNA as depicted in this self portrait.
Exhibit runs until July 9. The gallery is located at 133 Paseo Del Pueblo Norte.
