"Art touches the soul...art is communication...it reaches out from the canvas and passes through the eyes of the viewer right into his heart where it can leave an imprint of beauty that can make the spirit sing."

San Ysidro Church Fine Arts Show



The 26th San Ysidro Church Fine Arts Show 2014 is one of my favorite shows.  It is located in beautiful Corrales, NM and is happening right now, this week of the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta!
 
This historic church building has been around for many years…I am sure of that because there is a beam of wood up in the stained glass window over the front door that says “1853”…and a plaque on the front of the building that says that 23 caskets are buried below the floor boards…all to add to the excitement for our visitors this week!  It’s in a beautiful setting, one that I never tire of seeing.

Inside the Church the walls are lined with beautiful works of art created by mostly local artists…paintings, colored pencil drawings, glasswork, photography, pastels, ceramics, etc.…a lot with a New Mexican theme.

I am grateful to have had a painting accepted into this lovely show!  “Evening Rhapsody” is a 30” x 40” gallery-wrapped painting featuring a southwestern skyscape in shades of purples and pinks, highlighting a soft, muted desert floor below…there is a beautiful glow of light to this painting which really needs to be seen in person!

The show will be up til Sunday, October 12th…hours are 11am to 5pm daily
…except Sunday the show will close at 4pm
 …come visit this quaint little church (look for the signs!)

"Evening Rhapsody" by Nina Baldwin, original painting
 
…enjoy the beautiful, rural setting and take home a little piece of New Mexico creativity for you!
