Crealde School of Art (Facebook | Website) has announced a new exhibition that will share the works of eight Crealde master class students who traveled to New Mexico to document the cultural heritage and sites of the people living on the Historic Santa Fe Trail.
The Santa Fe Trail area was founded in 1835 by a Mexican land grant. New Mexico has over 900 buildings and five districts on the National Register of Historic Places and is home to a unique blend of indigenous and Spanish cultures.
The exhibition of black and white documentary photography was led by instructor Peter Schreyer, who has spent 35 years leading tours of the American Southwest as well as local documentaries including St. Augustine at 450 in 2015 and The Lake: A Documentary Exploring the Land and People of Lake Apopka in 2017.
An opening event is scheduled for 7 p.m. January 14, 2022, at the school’s Showalter Hughes Community Gallery with a presentation featuring the photographers set for the first hour followed by a general reception from 8-10 p.m.
Crealde is located at 600 St. Andrews Boulevard [GMap].
