Marjorie Eaton first arrived in Taos, NM in 1928.
Eaton said, “I realized I had found my soul when I arrived in Taos.”
This is the first exhibition to focus on Marjorie Eaton’s vast portfolio of work, not only as a modernist painter, but also as a photographer and actress. The show also provides an unprecedented glimpse into Eaton’s personal life through never before seen letters, photographs and personal effects. Don't miss this special opportunity to intimately experience this pioneering female artist whose efforts from the early Twentieth century and beyond continue to resonate today.
Viewers have responded with comments such as “Was blown away by this exhibit….so touched by it I cried at the end.”
Support for Marjorie Eaton: A Life In Pictures provided by the Elizabeth A. Sackler Museum Education Trust.
Each artist approaches the canvas in an entirely unique manner; their individual interpretation is as unique as a fingerprint. Renowned artist Nicolai Fechin (1881-1955) was no exception. His exuberant yet precise use of line and color to define form has captivated viewers for over a century. Set in the context of the exquisite home Fechin crafted by hand, and primarily featuring works from private collections not previously exhibited in Taos, this exhibition will provide a unique opportunity to experience Fechin’s world through his keen eye.
