On my blog today:
Off to Santa Fe:
            On Sundays, most museums in Santa Fe are free for New
Mexico residents. So - we are off to Santa Fe to look at art. The
O'Keeffe museum has an exhibit called - Marsden Hartley and the West:
The Search for an American Modernism. Hartley is a favorite of mine.
He was a member of the circle of artists around Alfred Stieglitz.
Hartley painted the New Mexico landscape between 1918 and 1924. He
first came to Taos in June of 1918 at the invitation of arts patron
Mabel Dodge Luhan as did so many other artists at that time. Hartley
died in 1943 - the same year I was born. He was born in 1877 so he
was in his 40's when he painted in New Mexico. Time Magazine critic
Robert Hughes wrote that Hartley was “the most brilliantly gifted of
the early generation of American modernists.” This is an exhibition I
do not want to miss.
