    Now in its 24th year, Miniatures & More is an exhibition fundraiser that provides valuable funding to The Museum while benefiting the artists whose work it features. The only selling exhibition at The Albuquerque Museum, 
Miniatures was created by – and is a program of – the Albuquerque Museum Foundation.

    A range of artists producing traditional and contemporary paintings, photographs and sculptures are selected each year through a juried process in order to provide an exceptional collection for consideration. The “& More” was added to the 2007 Miniatures exhibition. Miniatures & More also features a few selected large-scale works.

    Miniatures & More 2014 will open on Saturday, October 25, 2014 with a ticketed gala. Tickets are $75 per person and can be purchased by calling 505.842.0111. The exhibition will open to the public on Sunday, October 26, 2014.

    For the serious art collector, the 4th Annual Collectors' Dinner presents a unique opportunity to purchase artwork from Miniatures & More and from artists who have created pieces exclusively for that evening. A delectable wine dinner in the Miniatures & More gallery is the highlight of this evening. Tickets are $500 per person and may be purchased by calling 505.842.0111.

    Rarely is someone so talented that they are inducted into the Pastel Hall of Fame by the Pastel Society of America. Even more rare, at the time of this induction only three living artists had been given the honor, joining the company of greats like Mary Cassatt and Daniel Chester French. 


    Albert Handell is not just a superstar pastel painter, not just a master artist, he is an artist’s artist, commanding the highest respect among his peers. In 2000, the Pastel Society of the West Coast presented him with the organization’s first-ever Lifetime Achievement Award for Pastel.

     

    PleinAir magazine is pleased to welcome Pastel Hall of Fame Artist Albert Handell to the faculty of the 4th Annual Plein Air Convention & Expo, which will be held April 13-17, 2015.
 Handell will be demonstrating his technique at the convention, as well as working with painters in the field.


     At an early age, Handell could be found illustrating the streets of Brooklyn with chalk. He began formal studies at 16, and in 1954 he enrolled at the Art Students League in New York City to study drawing and anatomy with Louis Priscilla and Robert Ward Johnson. Handell currently lives and paints in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Since 1961, he has had over 30 one-man shows and has received more than 70 prizes and awards. This is a great opportunity to watch Albert Handell in person and capture the essence of his amazing skills.

    Thomas Wezwick's paintings often stand out because one can see that he takes bold chances with his colors and brushwork. A careful observer may note that his pieces often feature water, and a conversation with the New Mexico artist reveals that it's likely one particular body of water: the Gallinas River.
