I have written a few posts about the way each of us, Alvaro and myself, Barbara, approach painting, the female figure in particular, so we decided to hang the gallery to allow visitors to see those differences for themselves.
Thirteen of my paintings of women hang in our front room, while about the same number of Alvaro’s women hang in our big gallery room.
It is both arresting and interesting to see the differences in so many paintings at once.
We also decided to contrast our views of landscape. We hung Alvaro’s paintings of Morocco, a land that continues to inspire him, in our second room, while we hung my land and seascapes in the large gallery room. Visitors seem to be enjoying the two themes of the gallery, the differences in our ways of viewing the world.
If you are coming to New Mexico, be sure to drive up to beautiful Truchas and follow the signs to our gallery. We will be here all summer. You will be most welcome.
(Truchas is about forty five minutes north of Santa Fe, about the same distance south of Taos, at 8000 feet on the beautiful High Road [State Route 76]. Our gallery is located about a half mile in from the High Road, in the village. We are easy to find. Check out our ads in the Collector’s Guide and the Essential Guide where you can also find very good maps.)
