Ruidoso is New Mexico’s Newest Art Community

An Artistic Overview
The natural scenic beauty and laid back lifestyle has attracted artists to Ruidoso from all over our country. They tell us they find the legendary New Mexican light, unlimited subject matter and vibrant history where three cultures meshed, an unending source of inspiration. As a result, Ruidoso hosts a vigorous and productive community of world class artists and the art galleries which support their endeavors.

Ruidoso is widely hailed as New Mexico’s newest art community when compared to the more established and re-known communities of Santa Fe and Taos. But Ruidoso and Lincoln County are well on their way to a similar stature within these areas. Many internationally acclaimed artists call Lincoln County their home as do a host of lesser known but equally talented artists who work in an endless variety of mediums.

Our Favorite Sons and Daughters
As far as our most famous Ruidoso area artists … the Hurd La Rinconada Gallery in the Hondo Valley continues displaying the works of one of our nation’s foremost art families. Four generations starting with the famed illustrator N.C, Wyeth and continuing with his son Andrew Wyeth, his daughter Henrietta Wyeth, her husband Peter Hurd  and now their son Michael Hurd have created an unprecedented volume of work over the past decades. Ruidosoan Gordon Snidow is a fine western artist and is also known world wide. Both McMahon and the Abode are two of many fine galleries which feature the work of local as well as other New Mexico resident artists. McGary Studios features Dave McGary’s bronze sculptures of Native Americans. You’ll see many of these incredible pieces throughout our community as well as in fine galleries nationwide. His sculpture at Ruidoso Downs Race Track and Museum titled “Free Spirits at Noisy Water” is known as one of the finest equine sculptures in the world.

Art Happenings
Ruidoso features gallery tours, art walks, and art events throughout the year. A number of local artists offer tours of their studios several times a year with an Art Loop and the Art in Public Places exhibits. And, the Ruidoso Valley Chamber of Commerce produces the Ruidoso Arts Festival every July ... which has become one of the finest juried shows in the Southwest. Ruidoso’s arts organization the Ruidoso Regional Council for the Arts was formed in past years to provide new support to its art community and regularly sponsors art events in Ruidoso, Lincoln County and on the Mescalero Apache Reservation.
