New exhibit: “Linda Hagen: Light Affects”
Opens Dec. 11
New Mexico always has been renowned for the effects of its light and its attractiveness to artists. Light affects the way we view this beautiful state, and in this collection of paintings by Las Cruces artist Linda Hagen, she accepts the challenge of capturing light on canvas – on form, distance and color. A love of animals, the West, and nature inspire her work. The show will be in the Museum’s Arts Corridor through April 3, 2016.
