Warm and fuzzy Lumpkins
Finding something truly original from a renowned NM artist who passed away in 2000 has gotta be a good feeling. A family member of William Lumpkins, the architect behind over 2,000 buildings in the City Different and famed founder of the Santa Fe Art Institute, has come forward to reveal a fascinating new side of the artist with NEW MEXICO MODERNS: The Lumpkins Files, running through April 25 at Matthews Gallery (669 Canyon Road, Santa Fe). The show presents raggedly bold serigraphs and felt-tip pen drawings from the artist more generally known for his abstracted watercolor landscapes. It’s a fresh perspective on a legendary local gem. Attend the opening on Friday, April 18, from 5 to 7pm; visit thematthewsgallery.com for deets.
