Ev­ery year the Gover­nor’s Awards for Ex­cel­lence in the Arts hon­ors artists, mu­si­cians, writ­ers, per­form­ers, pa­trons of the arts, and other mem­bers of New Mexico’s cul­tural sphere in recog­ni­tion of their con­tri­bu­tions to the state. Since it was es­tab­lished by for­mer Gov. Bruce King and first lady Alice King in 1974, nearly 300 in­di­vid­u­als and or­ga­ni­za­tions have been awarded. The re­cip­i­ents for 2015 are master weaver Irvin Tru­jillo, mul­ti­me­dia artist Vir­gil Or­tiz, pain­ter Vin­cent N. Figli­ola, pa­pel pi­cado (cut pa­per) artist Catalina Del­gado-Trunk, mu­sic ed­u­ca­tor Wil­liam Clark, pin­hole pho­tog­ra­phy ad­vo­cates and col­lec­tors Eric Ren­ner and Nancy Spencer, and ac­tor, singer, and phi­lan­thropist Edgar Foster Daniels. A free public awards cer­e­mony oc­curs on Fri­day, Sept. 18, at St. Fran­cis Au­di­to­rium fol­low­ing a re­cep­tion and ex­hibit open­ing for the hon­orees at the Gover­nor’s Gallery (fourth floor of the State Capi­tol). On the cover is a photo of Tru­jillo’s 2014 ta­pes­try Saltillo Shroud (hand-dyed merino wool and silk and 14-karat-gold thread).
