What: Chris Morel: One Man’s Home
Where: Nedra Matteucci Gallery, 1075 Paseo De Peralta, Santa Fe NM 87501
505-982 4631 www.matteucci.com

Nedra Matteucci Galleries’ first summer exhibition, One Man’s Home, will feature oil and watercolor paintings by Chris Morel. One Man’s Home opens with an artist’s reception from 1 – 3 p.m. on Saturday, June 22, and the work will remain on display through mid-July. The exhibition will highlight Morel’s signature Southwestern landscapes, as well as paintings from recent travels through the Western United States and France.
“For me, nature is more than something nice to look at,” says Morel. “It is a necessity, like water, and there is no place that feeds my artistic soul like the mountains, streams and vistas of my Northern New Mexico home.”

For over 20 years, he has lived off the
High Road to Taos in a valley bathed in light. The inspiration for many of his paintings comes from daily sunbursts along the icy peaks, the noonday radiance in the trees, rocks and streams, and the flush of alpenglow on the ridgeline out his studio window.
“Chris has a captivating and inviting personality which comes through in his landscape paintings,” says Director Dustin Belyeu. “They have a radiance and vitality that comes from the heart.”

The High Road to Taos Scenic Byway is a lovely, winding road through the Sangre de Cristo Mountains between Santa Fe and Taos. It offers magnificent vistas of snow-capped peaks, alpine meadows, and charming traditional Spanish and Pueblo villages.


This lovely scenery has inspired many artists and artisans who live along the High Road, some of whom are featured in our blog:
