Peters Projects is pleased to present work by six acclaimed contemporary artists who were influenced by living and working in the Santa Fe area. Located in the contemporary galleries of the Gerald Peters Gallery, in Santa Fe, NM, the exhibition will include Lynda Benglis, James Lee Byars, Harmony Hammond, Agnes Martin, John McCracken, and Roxy Paine.
New Mexico began developing as a unique art destination even before it became a state in 1912. When train service arrived in 1880, visual artists began arriving from the cities of the East Coast and Mid-West to live and create their art. The spectacular landscape, penetrating blue sky, and varied cultures were just a few of the reasons why northern New Mexico became an artist’s sanctuary.
The six artists whose work is represented in Temporal Domain each possess uniquely divergent concerns in their practices. However, each of these artists has been described as having a sense of spirituality permeating their works. This singular commonality is something that is synonymous with Santa Fe, NM.
