Southwest Contemporary’s second annual 12 New Mexico Artists to Know Now exhibition features the work of artists who we think are shaping the landscape of contemporary art in New Mexico. This year, like the year before, we put out an open call for artists residing in New Mexico and received 400 submissions from artists of all ages, backgrounds, and from all corners of the state. And, like last year, the quality and diversity of work have been astounding. We were honored and grateful to enlist the help of another guest juror this year: Andrew Connors, director of the Albuquerque Museum, who helped us accomplish the difficult task of narrowing down the final selection to twelve.

You can see the final group of twelve in our February-March issue, which is online here.
