Burque Adventures in Casa Décor
World-class galleries and museums abound in Albuquerque. You know that. You’ve stepped inside them in Old Town, Downtown and Nob Hill. You’ve probably gazed appreciatively at clay pots on pedestals and leaned in close to study the brushstrokes on 30-foot acrylic landscapes. If you’ve got the means to show it off, that kind of art can be magnificent. Maybe, though, like me, you just live in a normal place—no fancy light fixtures, no dramatic inset shelving. A few beautiful pieces of art would be great, but you’ve got to consider the destructive power of kids or pets. Luckily, art for your home doesn’t have to be kept in a frame or put in a fragile curio—it can be something unique you love to pick up, sit on or put in your yard. An unusual object with a story behind it. Turns out, this town’s great for that kind of art, too. These three Albuquerque gems just might surprise you with the uncommon art they have for sale.
