Never-before-seen art by William Lumpkins

April 18 - April 25, 2014

NEW MEXICO MODERNS_ The Lumpkins Files

Architect and artist William Lumpkins (1909-2000) designed more than 2,000 buildings in Santa Fe, founded the Santa Fe Art Institute, and was an important player among the area’s early modernist artists. There’s no doubt this “Renaissance Man” left an enduring mark on the City Different, but one body of work by Lumpkins has yet to reach the public eye. This spring, Matthews Gallery will present never-before-seen prints and drawings from the private collection of a Lumpkins family member in NEW MEXICO MODERNS: The Lumpkins Files, opening April 18 from 5-7 pm and running through April 25.
