Opening Reception - 'Route 66: The Mother Road' by Angel Wynn

  • 7Arts Gallery 125 Lincoln Avenue Santa Fe, NM, 87501 United States (map)

The romance of Historic Route 66, also known as the Mother Road, can be nostalgic for many folks. Fascinated by this iconic highway, Angel Wynn, contemporary photo-encaustic painter, drove a number of miles to follow the remnants of America's Main Street.

Route 66 retains its mystique and passed through a marvelous cross section of iconic scenes that ran from the corn fields of Illinois to sandy beaches of California. By using an assortment of mixed media collage, Wynn highlights vintage vehicles, rusty road signs, honky tonk music, and the popular culture that animated Route 66 through its half-century heyday.

This art series is guaranteed to take Baby Boomers down a sentimental journey. Do as the song says and "Get your kicks on Route 66."

Artist Opening Reception is Friday, October 5, 2018 from 5:00 - 7:00 pm. Show runs through October 30, 2018.
