A solo exhibit…the photography of Jim Gautier “New Mexico’s Historic Churches – A 27 Year Journey” runs through Aug. 6, 2015 at the Bond House Museum and Gallery, Plaza de Espanola, 706 East Bond St. in Espanola.
The Bond House was built by Frank Bond in the early 1900’s and is a large structure of adobe built in a Victorian style. The museum houses many artifacts and images of Northern New Mexico, the Espanola
Valley and the Bond brother’s acquisition of the Valle Grande. The gallery is in the remodeled living and dining rooms and is an excellent venue. It is truly one of the hidden jewels of Northern New Mexico.
Gautier’s exhibit is of 26 black and white images of the rural churches of New Mexico and is a small portion of the photographs he has taken from all over New Mexico since 1988 as a volunteer for Cornerstones Community Partnerships, a historic preservation nonprofit organization based in Santa Fe.
There will also be exhibits telling about the work of Cornerstones and the Los Amigos de Valle Grande.
The Bond House is staffed by volunteers and open noon to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday.
