The Harwood Museum’s Studio 238 is their newest gallery addition for temporary exhibitions and installations.
The Harwood describes Studio 238 (yet another brainchild of the very talented and very busy, J. Matthew Thomas), as a small portable gallery/alcove space built to showcase community-based art events, and featuring work by contemporary local artists at various stages of their careers.
Tomorrow evening Studio 238 will open with a show titled Zabriskie Point, featuring the work of former Taos resident and frequent visitor, Mimi Saltzman.
Mimi Saltzman was raised in New York. She moved to Taos in 1972 and lived here for several years before returning to the East Coast.
She has since graduated from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts at Tufts University in Boston, and received an MFA from NYU in 2001.
Saltzman divides her time between Sag Harbor, New York, and Manhattan. For more on Mimi I have included a link to her site below this post.
The show opens tomorrow, June 30th at The Harwood. For more information please visit their site linked below,
Editor’s note: I wrote the profile piece on Mimi’s bother Bob (Dr. Robert) Saltzman for Paul O’Connor’s award winning book, Taos Portraits. (Bob once played in a band with my ex-husband, Sonny Robinson, another Taos character I’ll eventually get to), and is an artist in his own right. A great photographer. Art and creativity run in the DNA.
