The new permanent collections galleries showcase some of the Museum’s best portraits and landscapes; this pop-up exhibition examines a different genre of art: the still life. Although they represent a small part of the Museum collection, these works of art give viewers an insight into some prominent objects in Southwestern art. Featuring works from the Taos Society of Artists, the Texas Regionalists and many others, this exhibition explores the world of fruit, flowers and other objects that are the focus of artists’ study. Still Lifes also incorporates educational activities, including the opportunity to sketch in the gallery.
