SILVER CITY >> A new exhibit opening today at the Silver City Museum pays homage to the Hispanic culture and religious history with a look at more than 400 years of Hispanic New Mexican devotional art in the exhibit “Our Saints Among Us: Revisited.”
Derived from the personal collection of Barbe Awalt and Paul Rhetts, who have been collectors of the genre for nearly 25 years – since they moved to Los Ranchos, New Mexico from Maryland – the exhibit includes a wide variety of works both old and new in the forms of santos, retablos, bultos, colcha, tinwork, and other media depicting saints and other traditional Hispanic religious themes.
