A Spirit of Tradition: From the Bishop Tafoya Collection @ Sangre de Cristo Arts and Conference Center, Inc. Tickets
Sep 7 2019 – Jan 19 2020 all-day
A Spirit of Tradition: From the Bishop Tafoya Collection @ Sangre de Cristo Arts and Conference Center, Inc.

Santos have been made for centuries, since the early Spanish Colonial era. In the Americas, local expressions and native materials created a distinctly New World Style. Today, dedicated artists are still creating santos, working within an evolving tradition steeped in a rich history, but adapting to modern society. This exhibit features select santos from Bishop Tafoya, Ruth Gast and others from the permanent collection at the Sangre de Cristo Arts Center.
Open Wed-Sat 11AM-4PM, Sun 12-4PM. $10 Adult / $8 Child, Seniors 65+, Military. Members free.

Victor Keen’s interest in collecting encompasses much more than outsider art. He has also assembled an extensive array of Catalin radios, antique toys and banks, milk glass, toasters, vintage postcards, etc., many of which are housed in the Bethany Mission Gallery in Philadelphia, PA. This exhibition will highlight a sampling of these collections with examples of radios, toys and banks, and vintage worker’s ID badges in conjunction with the White Gallery’s exhibition of outsider art. Wed-Sat 11AM-4PM, Sun 12-4PM.

Outsider Art: The Collection of Victor Keen @ Sangre de Cristo Arts and Conference Center, Inc. Tickets
Oct 5 2019 – Jan 12 2020 all-day

Open Wed-Sat 11AM-4PM, Sun 12-4PM.

In her book, Great and Mighty Things*, Ann Percy defines Outsider Art: Originally used to describe art that was created by individuals coping with mental illness or living outside the boundaries of established culture, the term “outsider art” is now used more generally to encompass a great many artists who can more accurately be identified as “self-taught.” The majority of these artists do not necessarily earn their livings creating paintings or sculpture; to the contrary, they exist with limited or no connection to the art world as we define it via galleries, museums, schools, curators, dealers, critics and collectors. To put it simply, outsider art is made by individuals who are driven to create by their own particular inner compulsions.

This fall, Pueblo native Victor Keen brings his extensive collection of outsider art to share with the Sangre de Cristo Arts Center and the community. Victor Keen created the Bethany Mission Gallery in Philadelphia, PA, as a space to showcase this collection. He continues to seek out the artists and artworks that interest him not only visually, but also through the stories they tell. Paramount to seeking out the paintings, prints, drawings and sculptures as objects themselves, Keen’s true passion lies in finding connections with the artists and cultivating meaningful relationships with them through his acquisitions.

The Thanksgiving Play @ Curious Theatre Company Tickets
Oct 31 @ 7:30 pm – Dec 15 @ 9:30 pm
The Thanksgiving Play @ Curious Theatre Company

Ah, Thanksgiving, that most American of Holidays: when families gather to bask in the bounty of the harvest, football, giant balloons—and the legacy of genocide and violent colonial expansion. Good intentions collide with absurd assumptions in this wickedly funny satire as a troupe of terminally “woke” teaching artists trip all over themselves to create a politically correct, yet historically accurate , yet dramatically revolutionary, yet accurately represented sand responsibly cast Thanksgiving play for elementary schools…all while navigating aspirations to be successful actors- but not commercially successful- and overall unproblematic white people. Come see this production 10/31-12/15, Thursday-Saturday at 7:30pm and Sundays at 2:00pm.
