The Alcove Shows are a one year cycle of small one person
exhibitions featuring work being made in New Mexico right now.
The format of these Shows can be traced back to the
1917 founding of the New Mexico Museum of Art. The Alcove
Shows were held in the gallery alcoves of what was then
called the Art Gallery of the Museum of New Mexico.
The Museum is continuing this alcove exhibition tradition for
a one year cycle of nine exhibitions that will include 45 artists
from across the state of New Mexico. These artist centered
showcases will feature new ideas, artists at all stages of their
career.s Each group of five artists will be on exhibit for five
weeks at the New Mexico Museum of Art.
