Walk Urban, 2021. Acrylic, Oil, and Mixed Medium on Canvas
Top 10 Southwest Art Exhibitions Worth a Road Trip Before Summer Ends
Ellsworth Gallery, Santa Fe
August 27–November 7, 2021
Albuquerque-based artist Everton Tsosie’s solo exhibition Urban Native combines the artist’s abstractive style, palettes inspired by the New Mexico landscape, and the disquieting pulses of urban city environments. Fresh off of a stint in New York, Tsosie’s figures are rendered in fervent lines of color with city landscapes encroaching on and around them carrying markers of the turmoil of the current social and political landscape. Tsosie was recently featured in Southwest Contemporary’s fall 2021 issue, Inhale Exhale.
