New Mexico Museum of Art announces appointment of new Curator of Art Carmen Vendelin
From the exhibition: Here, Now and Always. Museum of Indian Arts and Culture.
SANTA FE, NM.- Carmen Vendelin was recently the Curator of Art at La Salle University Art Museum in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Previously she was at the Newark Museum, Newark, New Jersey, the Jane Voorhees Zimmerli Art Museum at Rutgers University, and at the Art Institute of Chicago. She has over thirteen years of museum experience, ten of those curatorial. Her area of specialization is 19th and 20th century American and European art with particular emphasis on the years between the 1870s and World War II. At the New Mexico Museum of Art, she will be working mainly with collections before 1955.

Ms. Vendelin earned a bachelor's degree with honors in art history from University of Washington, a Master of Modern and Contemporary Art History, Criticism and Theory from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and completed her doctoral candidacy at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey.

Her first exhibition at the New Mexico Museum of Art will be Hunting + Gathering: New Additions to the Museum Collection, opening in the museum's new wing November 7, 2014 and running through March 29, 2015.

Head of Curatorial Affairs Merry Scully said of Ms. Vendelin's appointment, "The Museum of Art is very happy to have added Carmen Vendelin to our team. Her knowledge and experience will be a great asset. Already her fresh approach to the museum collection is evident in the engaging approach she is taking with Hunting + Gathering: New Additions to the Museum Collection. It is proving to not be just your average recent acquisitions exhibition."

And Ms. Vendelin said, "Both Hunting + Gathering and the next exhibition I will be curating, tentatively titled Colors of the Southwest, have afforded me the opportunity to look at and get to know a substantial number of artworks in the Museum of Art's permanent collection. Santa Fe and New Mexico are, and have been, very fertile spaces for artists and the collection reflects this. I am looking forward to sharing the richness of the collection with our visitors."
