The first Saturday of each month, many galleries in Taos feature demos, receptions with new works, and meet the artist artist events. Regular hours are often extended to be open later than usual. Taos is unique with our high concentration of  galleries, studios, historic sites and museums within easy walking distance of each other. Not to mention the hidden gems outside of the Historic District.

 October was perfect, looking forward to November 03…!

Being connected makes Taos successful as a community.

Thank You.

MEET THE ARTIST: MEL SCULLY, “LOVE, DEATH & GUNS”
TAOS: Harwood Museum of Art:

Meet the Artist: November 2, 4 – 6pm: Exhibition Dates, Friday, November 2 - Sunday, November 25, 2018

The Harwood Museum of art is pleased to announce the Studio 238 featured artist for November, Mel Scully, with her new body of work, “Love, Death, & Guns.” Through the delicate use of lace, oil paints and powerful imagery, she addresses Americas love story with guns & the vulnerability and heartbreaking fragility of parenting during our age of mass shootings.

In her artist statement Scully states, “I could tell you the statistics about the NRA... I could show you the gore and violence of attacks. But the reality is, we all turn away…” So, instead she picks up the brush and creates eulogies on canvas, creating a delicate balance of 21st century fears with 20th century beauty. Her works are collaged with lacey doilies set within thick impasto oil’s in shades of fresh whites, greys and creams. A shadow of firearms interrupts the scene, completed with a Hallmark greetings, “I love you.”

For Scully this is personal, as she states, “My daughter is a year younger that the children that died at Sandy Hook. She is four years younger than the children that died in Parkland. When I was a child I went to a funeral of a child who accidentally shot himself and watched as his family struggled to survive in the following years. Now we have a whole generation of kids who have suffered the panic of being in a war zone, families who suffer the terrible grief of losing a precious child and the looming fear over all of the next attack.” This collection of works is a way to process her own grief, fear, confusion and frustration with America’s love affair with guns, while addressing this epidemic with beauty. “They are my way to send love to the families that have suffered so greatly. They are my prayers for the children that fly away from us too soon.”

Scully received her BFA in painting from Michigan State University, her MFA in Painting in 2003 at Utah State University, Logan, Utah with a Post Graduate degree from the University of New Mexico. Scully’s work has been featured in exhibitions throughout the West, including Utah, Idaho, Wyoming, and New Mexico. She was the 2003 recipient of the New Mexico Arts, Art in Public Places Program in Santa Fe, and an Artist in Residence at the Artist Refuge in Basin, Montana, and at the Harwood Museum of Art. Mel Scully lives in Taos, New Mexico with her husband and daughter.

A Meet the Artist event is scheduled for November 2nd from 4-6pm and is free and open to the public.
For more information, contact the Harwood Museum of Art at 575.758.9826 x 109 or go to harwoodmuseum.org.

Studio 238 is a pop-up gallery exhibition at the Harwood Museum of Art offering contemporary local artists an opportunity to show their work. These rotating one-month exhibitions provide a space for new series of works, experimental or traditional, to both established and emerging local artists.
