About the Event
Visitors walking down scenic Quesnel Street in Taos are likely to encounter lifetime artist Ed Sandoval, a renown Don Quixote character as colorful as the landscapes he paits. Sandoval, native to Northern New Mexico and know worldwide, embodies the narrative his paintings convey. In illustrating his deep reverence for the New Mexico of his boyhood, when rural life was slow and peaceful, Sandoval preserves that way of life, bringing his memories of the “old ones” into landscapes filled with bold color and rustic serenity.
Having become a master of light over a lifetime of practice, Sandoval also challenges himself to invent new color systems. Priming each canvas with a deep red undercoat, he outlines the Sangre de Cristo (Blood of Christ) Mountains as they pulse with energy and warmth. Clouds swoon in the moving skies; sagebrush, chamisa and cottonwoods shimmer and dance as they grace his weathered adobe casitas.
One of the most popular contemporary artists in northern New Mexico, Sandoval's achievements earned him the coveted Governor's Award for Excellence in 2012, and many recognizable paintings chosen for the Santa Fe Wine & Chile Fiesta, The Santa Fe Opera and more.
