Colors of the Southwest | 04.15.23 – 07.22.23

We are privileged to share some of the latest acquisitions from this donated collection. Native Midwesterners, Charles and Jeanette Gilchrist White first came to the southwest about 45 years ago to enjoy the wonderful skiing venues. Very soon, they developed a passion for the unique culture in the area. The Southwest is possibly the only area in the United States where everyday life is so dedicated to the arts. Beauty is everywhere, a fact which has inspired artists around the globe to relocate here. The couple welcomed the opportunity to get to know the local artists and gallery/museum personnel which has fostered many friendships. Charles and Jeanette stated that their ever-expanding interest in southwestern art greatly enhanced their retirement years. Their initial donation to the Sangre de Cristo Arts Center coincided with their 60th wedding anniversary in 2015, donating nearly 100 pieces. The Sangre de Cristo Arts & Conference Center is proud to provide this collection with a permanent home.
