The 12 New Mexico Artists are featured in Southwest Contemporary’s annual summer art publication, the New Mexico Field Guide, published on May 27, 2022.
An art exhibition featuring their work opens on May 27, 2022 with a public opening party 5-8 pm, and will be on view through June 25 at Pie Projects, 924 Shoofly Street, Santa Fe.
Now in its fourth year, our 12 New Mexico Artists to Know Now project issues an annual statewide open call to artists to submit their work in any medium and style. Through this call, we are privileged to engage with the most exceptional talent and compelling contemporary artwork being made throughout our home state. And, as in previous years, we continue to be astounded by the vision, dedication, and gumption of the artists in our community.
This year’s call—which received 500 submissions—was juried by Louis Grachos, executive director of SITE Santa Fe, and Marisa Sage, director and head curator of the New Mexico State University Art Museum in Las Cruces.
