Theme:  Five Thousand Years of Agriculture in New Mexico".

Somewhere around 5,000 years ago, indigenous people of the North American Southwest began to cultivate maize, an early version of what we know as corn today. Early maize was not much like the corn we know, but its cultivation enabled people who were essentially hunter-gatherers to remain in one area, allowing for the beginnings of what would later become the cultures of Ancestral Puebloans, Mogollon and Hohokam. Many changes in people, crops and practices have occurred in the last 5,000 years, but agriculture remains integral to culture and economy of the North American Southwest. Artists of the New Mexico Watercolor Society will draw on changes in Prehistoric, Historic and Contemporary agricultural practices and imagery to illustrate a beautiful timeline, supporting the New Mexico Farm & Ranch Museum’s mission to promote the arts while educating Museum visitors about aesthetics and diversity in the artwork of historic and contemporary New Mexico.
