Innocence of subject and style combine with sophistication of composition, color, and technique in Tom Noble's high-key watercolors. A lifelong resident of Taos and recipient of the Mexico Governor's Award for Excellence in Art, Noble extolls the joys, virtues, and beauty of village life in Northern New Mexico. His paintings elevate the mood and lift the spirit with auras of perpetual freshness. Join Ventana Fine Art in honoring this influential and long-cherished painter at the opening reception for his winter show on Saturday, December 8, from 1 to 3 p.m. The show runs through December 31.
