The Mesa Public Library Authors Speak Series presents Stacia Lewandowski, author of Light, Landscape and the Creative Quest: Early Artists of Santa Fe, 7 p.m., July 25 in the upstairs rotunda.
New Mexico attracts and fosters many artists of all kinds. In her book on some of the visual artists who found the high desert light and landscape of Santa Fe irrestible and inspiring, Lewandowski explores their lives and art through photographs and personal stories.
The book is actually a two volume set which includes a separate walking tour booklet of many artists’ homes and sites in Santa Fe.
As July’s guest speaker, Lewandowski will present a talk about the book and accompanying slide show with images of Santa Fe and archival photographic images from the book.
Light, Landscape and the Creative Quest: Early Artists of Santa Fe won the award for Best First Book at the 2012 New Mexico-Arizona Book Awards. It was also selected as a finalist for Best Book in the Arts.
Lewandowski was born and raised in Chicago. She received degrees in flute performance from the Eastman School of Music and in philosophy from the University of Colorado. Her early education also included classes at the Art Institute of Chicago and a year of study in Poland at the Warsaw Conservatory of Music.
