Philanthropy

The Land of Enchantment is a special place, and New Mexico PBS, KNME has been exporting the art and culture of our state through its unique programming for over 55 years. Public Television provides the opportunity to learn about diverse art and culture from every corner of the globe.

The Great Southwestern Art and Education Endowment, held at the Albuquerque Community Foundation, was established to assist us in that mission. Your participation provides valuable resources to the endowment. By attending these impressive events, you will be supporting the endowment. Opening night proceeds of all three shows, in Albuquerque and in Santa Fe, benefit New Mexico PBS.

Special Exhibitions

The Great Southwestern Antique Show Special Exhibit: VIVA MEXICO!

The “Viva Mexico” exhibition features a comprehensive display of vintage Hispanic American textiles, costumes, sombreros, saddles, riding accoutrements, and historic objects that date from more than three different centuries. Included are elaborately decorated objects that can seldom be seen, even in museums.









Objects of Art Santa Fe Special Exhibit: ON THE FRONTIER: The Art of Jose Bedia

On the Frontier, presented by Jose Bedia Jr. and James Trotta-Bono, will highlight the Cuban-American artist’s lifelong passion for indigenous people and the west. The spiritual beliefs and animistic iconography of these cultures are ingrained in Jose Bedia’s unique painting style. The exhibition, which includes new works, will also be paired with a number of earlier works contextualizing the artist’s career.









The Antique American Indian Art Exhibit: Woven in Beauty: 100 Years of Navajo Master Weavers From The Toadlena/Two Grey Hills Region

The “Woven in Beauty” exhibition features Navajo master weaver textiles from the Toadlena/Two Grey Hills region. The region is located on the Navajo reservation in Northwestern New Mexico. The Toadlena/Two Grey Hills style is most distinguished by the use of numerous shades of natural wool from local sheep to produce textiles with precise and imaginative designs.
