Treasures Seldom Seen rejoices in the representational paintings from the New Mexico Museum of Art collection that defined mainstream New Mexico Art almost a century ago. The exhibition will be ongoing in the museum’s Clark Gallery.

Landscapes by George Bellows, John Sloan, and Fremont Ellis, as well as portraits by Paul Berlin, Oscar Berninghaus, Victor Higgins, and Joseph Henry Sharp are featured. In addition, an alcove presents works by, and about, Georgia O’Keeffe and another introduces the museum’s Web site New Mexico Art Tells New Mexico History.
