Nov 20 Sunday
With the holiday season right around the corner, the New Mexico Farm & Ranch Heritage Museum in Las Cruces is the place to be on Nov. 19-20. HomeGrown: A New Mexico Food Show & Gift Market is a great opportunity to sample and shop for New Mexico’s award-winning food products.
The eighth-annual HomeGrown event will take place on Saturday, Nov. 19 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday, Nov. 20 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Admission is $10 per vehicle, and the first 100 vehicles at the event each day will receive a free burlap shopping bag. Cash is encouraged for admission.
The New Mexico Department of Agriculture partners with the Museum each year to co-host the show and will offer food demonstrations.
Attendees can expect about 50 vendors, the majority representing a variety of food and beverage companies from around the state and all of which are New Mexico “Taste the Tradition®” and “Grown with Tradition®” members. Each booth will offer locally produced products, such as award-winning salsas, nuts, sauces, and wine, for attendees to sample and purchase. The show also features crafts made from agriculture resources and hand-made art.
As the second installment of the "New Mexico Artists" series, the Millicent Rogers Museum presents Southwest Reflections: In Between Shadows of the Land. Supported by New Mexico Arts, the exhibition offers a diverse exploration of nine New Mexican artists’ documentations of environmental relationships and the ways these events become conveyed through shadows, reflections, and movements. The concept of “in between shadows” references the contrast of light in the land in tandem with the decisive moments that shape the future of particular places in the Southwest region, including the artists’ practices as actions of intervention and change themselves. The featured artists—Matthew and Julie Chase-Daniel, Dora Dillistone, Juanita J. Lavadie (Chicana/Taoseña), Lorraine Gala Lewis (Laguna Pueblo/Hopi-Tewa/Taos Pueblo), Pola Lopez (Chicana), Collette Marie (Mestiza/Chicana), Brandon Adriano Ortiz (Taos Pueblo), and Will Wilson (Diné [Navajo])—approach the land as a site of truth-telling from several cultural perspectives. Curated by Michelle Lanteri, MRM Curator of Collections & Exhibitions. $12 general admission. Veterans, 12/under, Museum Members free everyday. Taos County residents free every Sunday. Museum closed on Wednesdays from Nov-March. (Image: Will Wilson, Connecting the Dots: Cameron Straightdown Sefx, archival pigment print from digital photograph)
