TAOS, N.M. — David Montgomery and Roger Williams will have a joint art show opening and reception at the Copper Moon Gallery, 105 Kit Carson Road in Taos, New Mexico on Saturday, July 7, from 3 to 6 p.m. On display for the month of July will be a variety of fine art paintings ranging in subject matter from the Rio Grande Gorge to Native American portrayals by this talented duo.
Montgomery and Williams share a long term friendship dating back to meeting at Alamosa High School. After graduating, Montgomery went to Colorado State University in Fort Collins and received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in painting while Williams attended Denver University and finished with his Master’s Degree at Adams State University.
Williams moved to Santa Fe more than 30 years ago to promote his art in that international art center. Montgomery returned to Alamosa after college and continues to paint the pristine country in and around the San Luis Valley.
The artist’s first collaboration was a show in 1981 centered in and around Crestone, Colorado, celebrating the wonders of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. While showing together since then in group shows and competitions, the upcoming show and sale at the Copper Moon Gallery will be their first reprise of a two-man show.
The upcoming exhibition in Taos will offer a wide variety of subject matter from these talented artists: from alpine streams, to desert views, adobe villages and blooming fruit trees.
Williams also shows at the Wade Gallery in Santa Fe, New Mexico, the Grapevine Gallery in Oklahoma City and the Longcoat Fine Art in Ruidoso.
