[ARCHIVED] "Symbols of New Mexico" at the Branigan Cultural Center

Symbols of New Mexico

The Branigan Cultural Center is pleased to announce the opening of a new exhibition, Symbols of New Mexico: A Personal Experience, which features artwork by artist Victoria Chick. Through a series of ten, large-scale paintings, Chick explores New Mexico’s open spaces, diverse plants and animals, and brilliant sunshine. Symbols of New Mexico is on view July 29—September 24, 2022. The artist will lead a gallery talk at 5:30 p.m. on September 2.

Even after seventeen years living in New Mexico, Victoria Chick considers herself a newcomer, which she believes allows her to see with fresh eyes the landscapes, animals, and plants that are symbols of New Mexico. Chick enjoys these uniquely New Mexican characteristics and incorporates them into her large, colorful paintings. Her use of a cat motif within her artwork makes note of the role her pet cats have in drawing her attention to small elements in nature that she might have overlooked.

Victoria Chick is a painter and printmaker who is an active art collector. She has served as an instructor of life drawing, painting, and art history at several colleges. Her artwork is found in galleries and museums across several states. Currently, Chick is actively involved in working for the establishment of the Southwest Regional Museum of Art and Art Center in Silver City, New Mexico.

The museum is located at 501 N. Main St. and is open from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, and from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Saturday. There is no admission charge. The museum is accessible from RoadRUNNER Transit Route 1 Stop 1. For additional information, visit the website at https://www.las-cruces.org/Museums or call (575)541-2154.
