Our friends at the El Paso Museum of Archaeology sent us this about a current exhibit:
Watercolor Paintings of Rock Art at Hueco Tanks
Exhibit on view until June 3, 2012
The El Paso Museum of Archaeology is currently exhibiting Forrest Kirkland’s images of rock art at Hueco Tanks in the auditorium gallery.
Kirkland was the first artist to systematically document prehistoric rock art in Texas, thus his work is well known and admired by those interested in Texas archaeology.
The twenty six images in this exhibit, which include hundreds of pictographs, are full color reproductions scanned at high resolution from Kirkland’s plates. The original watercolors are no longer in a condition to be exhibited because the paper and paints are brittle and light sensitive. Today some of the images Kirkland rendered in watercolor have faded or disappeared while others in sheltered locations are still visible.
