The exhibition, Nuestros Maestros: The Legacy of Abad E. Lucero, is the second in a series in the Community Art Gallery at the National Hispanic Cultural Center’s (NHCC) Art Museum, and will open on Friday April 13, 2012 with a reception from 6-8 pm. The series honors artists that have passed who held deep community connections and made tremendous contributions to Hispanic arts in New Mexico. Abad Eloy Lucero was a renaissance man in New Mexico art history. He was a master of all different types of media. Best-known for making exquisite hand-joined furniture, he also made his own hardware, often recycling car parts and bullet casings to do so. Lucero didn’t stop there, he was a sculptor, photographer and painter- creating art well into his nineties. In celebration of New Mexico’s centennial we honor Abad Lucero who was born before New Mexico achieved statehood and passed before we could share his legacy. The exhibition will run through January 2013.Price: $3 Adults, $2 seniors, free for children 16 & under.
