ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Spanish colonial art spans continents and centuries. These artists paired European aesthetics with imagery gleaned from across the hemispheres.
They wove the sacred with the earthly, tapping deeply into the divine.
Open at Santa Fe’s Peyton Wright Gallery, the 27th Annual “The Art of Devotion” exhibition showcases colonial artwork from the former Spanish and Portuguese colonies —— present-day Bolivia, Peru, Argentina, Mexico, Ecuador, Chile, Venezuela, Brazil, Guatemala and the Philippines. It also features a rare collection of bultos, cristos and retablos by New Mexican santeros.
