Visual Art Museum
Southwest of Eden: The Art of Adam and Eve
NHCC Art Museum Community Gallery
This exciting exhibit features approximately fifty works of art from the Joyce Kaser Collection. Southwest of Eden: The Art of Adam and Eve examines the various ways in which New Mexican artists and others visually portray these two famous figures as well as the flora and fauna in their surroundings. For example, how many apples are featured, or are they pomegranates? Is the serpent male or female? Is it animal or human, or half and half? Is Eve always the instigator or is Adam assuming some responsibility? Situated in the NHCC Art Museum’s highly popular community gallery, Southwest of Eden invites the visitor to take a closer look at the imagery, symbolism and story of what happened in the garden.
Join us for a chat with artists Valerie Bower, Arthur López, and Delilah Montoya! The conversation will be intimate and casual as we chat about the artists’ work and the exhibit. Light refreshments will be served. The museum will be open prior to the event to view the exhibition. Donations are appreciated.
