    New Beginnings: An American Story of Romantics and Modernists in the West

    This major traveling exhibition offers a fresh take on Western art through 100 works by 70 well-known artists including those from the Taos Society of Artists and less-recognized artists, who were living and working in the 1920s and 1930s in Santa Fe and Taos, N.M. – important art colonies then and now. The New Beginnings exhibition, which makes its debut at Scottsdale’s Museum of the West and will travel to four additional institutes across the U.S. into 2021, features paintings, works on paper, photographs, sculptures and a furniture piece from the celebrated Tia Collection including never-before-shown works. This is the first time three-year-old Scottsdale’s Museum of the West, a Smithsonian Affiliate, is debuting another organization’s traveling exhibition. The exhibition offers a crisp view of artwork covering nearly a century, from 1888 to 1983, showing the evolution of art in New Mexico from 19th century Classicism and Romanticism to early 20th century Modernism with a focus on artworks and artists who operated on the transnational stage. Several years in the making, the New Beginnings exhibition features artists who were originally from outside the American West and also includes a significant number of women artists.

  • Janel Garza: Environ

    Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art
    7374 East Second Street
    Scottsdale, AZ 85251
    Janel Garza: Environ

    As the title suggests, the new mural unveiled at SMoCA, Environ was designed to reflect multiple features that directly surround the space. Each aspect of the courtyard where it resides is taken into consideration—from the colored light of James Carpenter’s glass scrim wall to the ever-changing view of James Turrell’s skyspace, Knight Rise, as well as the nearby native plant life. Pulling simple abstract shapes and colors from each of these influences created one cohesive and fluid design. The intention of the artist is to complement the space and welcome visitors to spend time within the courtyard walls.

    The streets of Victorian England come to life as Oliver, a malnourished orphan in a workhouse, becomes the neglected apprentice of an undertaker. Oliver escapes to London and finds acceptance amongst a group of petty thieves and pickpockets led by the elderly Fagin. When Oliver is captured for a theft that he did not commit, the benevolent victim, Mr. Brownlow takes him in. Fearing the safety of his hideout, Fagin employs the sinister Bill Sikes and the sympathetic Nancy to kidnap him back, threatening Oliver’s chances of discovering the true love of a family.
