  1. Peter Hurd on Paper

    March 30, 2018, 9:00 AM - August 12, 2018, 5:00 PM @ Roswell Museum and Art Center

    During his tenure as a war art correspondent in the 1940s, Hurd began painting larger, finished works with watercolor, using the medium as a portable alternative to egg tempera. After World War II, Hurd continued creating larger watercolor paintings, and continued producing sketches and studies for later works. With their fluid, informal lines and energetic brushwork, Hurd’s works on paper offer an intimate, gestural foil to his egg tempera paintings. Drawn from the permanent collection, Peter Hurd on Paper invites viewers to explore the Roswell Museum and Art Center’s holdings of studies and finished watercolor paintings. Scheduled to be on view during the exhibition Magical and Real: Henriette Wyeth and Peter Hurd, A Retrospective, this installation is both a continuation of that show and an independent exhibition that can be enjoyed on its own. Learn more about Hurd’s working methods while exploring a range of his works. for more information call 575-624-6744.

  4. Hurd & Wyeth: Picturing the Hondo Valley

    June 15, 2018, 9:00 AM - September 16, 2018, 5:00 PM @ Roswell Museum and Art Center

    Magical & Real: Henriette and Peter Hurd, A Retrospective, is the first exhibition to explore all aspects of the careers of this artist couple-from their earliest successes in the 1920s to their late career works- and to place their work within the larger context of the 20th century American art. Co-organized with the Roswell Museum and Art Center in New Mexico, the exhibition is also the first scholarly project to probe private collections and family archives highlighting their relationships to other family members, particularly N.C. and Andrew Wyeth- and the first to evaluate their work within the broad context of the 20th century American Art. The exhibit will be on display June 15 to September 16, 2018. For more information, call the Roswell Museum and Art Center at 575-624-6744.
