northern New Mexico artist, Richard Sandoval


McLarry Fine Art Gallery on Canyon Road had a reception Friday (2/10/12) night for artist Richard Sandoval and his collection of paintings and sculptures. He has been painting New Mexico landscapes for most of his 70 years, concentrating on northern New Mexico. In addition to the work in the exhibit, Mr. Sandoval has illustrated books, exhibited at Spanish Market, written books, and has been involved artistically with New Mexico Magazine for many years.  The gallery was packed with lifelong fans and newcomers to his art as well. He obligingly posed for this photo as others were snapping away as well.

  7. You're really making progress on your portraits, even finding rather famous people. Good for you!

    (Our sculptor friend Welton Roetz currently has several pieces in a gallery on Canyon Road. I'll have to find out which one. He works in massive pieces of stone.)
