Do you all remember when freelance writer Wolf Schneider (http://www.WolfSchneiderUSA.com/) came to Truchas to do a story on the art scene here for the Santa Fe New Mexican’s summer magazine, Bienvenidos (See previous post Wolf Schneider Interviews Truchas Artists)?
Well, the magazine is out and Wolf did a wonderful job of capturing a true sense of this art colony I call home. Here is what she said about Truchas on her blog just after she was here: http://www.wolfschneiderusa.com/1/post/2012/02/destination-truchas.html.
And here is a link to her article: High Art: An Art Scene Thrives in the Mountain Town of Truchas
Thank you, Wolf, for really getting what it is we do up here.
But, beyond the story about Truchas, the Bienvenidos Summer Guide offers a wealth of information about what to do in New Mexico. I highly recommend that any of you who are locals get your free copy ASAP. And for those of you who are out of state, you can read the entire magazine online: Bienvenidos 2012 Summer Guide to Sante Fe and Northern New Mexico.
I love my village of Truchas. It is very old (settled in 1754), quirky and, yes, artful. The village teams with artists. In fact there were several who were not mentioned in Wolf’s article (not everyone was in town when she was here). So I wanted to remind you all about contemporary painter Judith Hert (see previous post Judith Hert, Artist) and landscape painter Sally Delap John (see previous post Sally Delap-John: Painting the Villages). Then there is the wonderful art co-op, The High Road Marketplace (see previous post Traditional Hispanic Arts and the High Road Marketplace). All in all, there is plenty of art for you to see when you come for a visit.
So we’re pulling out the welcome mats and looking forward to seeing you this season. Come celebrate “High Art” with we artists living the life, high in the mountains of northern New Mexico. Discover something better than you could ever anticipate. We’re full of surprises up here in Truchas. Come see for yourselves. Here are some images from in and around Truchas:
Love to you all,
