Photography in B&W
December 2, 2022–January 15, 2022
The Wright Contemporary, Taos
When most people think about photography in Northern New Mexico, they will most likely conjure up images of sun-struck adobe churches or picturesque shots of the pueblo in the snow. The curators of Photography in B&W, Ann Landi and Michelle Cooke, at the Wright Contemporary aim to show that there is an astonishing diversity of subject matter among photographers in the region. Whether it’s tender portraiture, stark abstractions, or nine-foot-long panoramas—or even a table of chic diners at an upscale Parisian restaurant. The artists in this survey include Annabush Crews, Eugene Gray, Gus Foster, Arthur Gottschalk, Desirée Manville, Barbara Rothman, Geraint Smith, and Zoe Zimmerman.
The Wright Contemporary is a new venture in Taos, featuring the best of the region in theme-driven shows, such as the recent Explosive Abstraction, New Geometries, and Taos Draws! The gallery sponsors regular films, lectures, and panels. In the last few months, the Wright has played host to a symposium of art dealers, panels about managing artists’ estates and negotiating contracts, a lecture on the origins of Abstract Expressionism, and screenings of the documentaries Agnes Martin: Before the Grid and Eva Hesse.
On Sunday, December 4 at 3 pm, Southwest Contemporary publisher and editor Lauren Tresp will talk about the evolution of The Magazine into Southwest Contemporary.
Located just north of La Posta Road in Taos, the gallery is open Wednesday–Sunday, 2-6 pm, with plenty of parking.
