New Exhibition for Lovers of Spanish Colonial Art

The Hacienda Nicholas Bed and Breakfast Inn, whose architecture and decor attract lovers of Spanish Colonial art, will thoroughly enjoy the new exhibit at the Museum of Spanish Colonial Art.  The exhibit, titled "Collecting New Mexico: The Forgotten Cady Wells", will be on view from January 22, 2011 through August 28, 2011.  Modernist painter Cady Wells (1904-1954) was one of the foremost collectors of New Mexican historic art during the 1930's and 40's.  This exhibition showcases how his collecting not only influenced his own art, but influenced the way museums and collectors came to view Hispanic Art.
