Colors of the Southwest

When: June 4-Sept. 27 2015

Colors of the Southwest, which opened last week at the Sangre de Cristo Arts Center (210 N. Santa Fe Ave., Pueblo, sdc-arts.org), is all about vibrantly hued work gleaned from the contemporary Southwestern collection of Jeanette and Charles White. But "Film Indian" by Fritz Scholder is striking even in its black-and-white. Simply a bust of a man in a war bonnet, the lines are gloppy, the atmosphere moody and mysterious. Consider this a perfect introduction for those who may not know about Scholder, a renowned Native American artist, and bank it away until October, when the Denver Art Museum puts up its own Scholder exhibit. Back at Sangre, Colors is up through Sept. 27, and admission is only $6 to $8, and free for members. — Edie Adelstein
