Cap­i­tal ide­al­ists

Pasatiempo - - CONTENTS -

Ni­cholas Her­rera uses wood, re­cy­cled metal, and sal­vaged au­to­mo­bile parts in his ren­di­tions of tra­di­tional bul­tos and retab­los, in which he cap­tures as­pects of con­tem­po­rary New Mex­ico cul­ture and iden­tity. Her­rera joins artists David Bradley, Jim Vo­gel, Felix López, Elodie Holmes — and arts contributors Dr. Ra­makr­ishna and Ammu Dev­asthali, Michael Hurd, and New Mex­ico Mag­a­zine — in re­ceiv­ing the an­nual Gov­er­nor’s Awards for Ex­cel­lence in the Arts. The cer­e­mony is free and open to the pub­lic and takes place at 5:15 p.m. on Fri­day, Sept. 23, in the St. Fran­cis Au­di­to­rium at the New Mex­ico Mu­seum of Art (107 W. Palace Ave.). On the cover is Her­rera’s Espíritu del Cere­bro, a retablo painted with nat­u­ral pig­ments.
