New Mexico as We Saw It: the photography of Bob and Diane Hudgens


The show runs January 30 – February 27- an artist reception will be held Sunday, February 7, from 1-3PM. Deming Art Center, 100 S. Gold St, 575-546-3663

Together for more than a decade and during that time wandering New Mexico, Luna County and Deming, Bob and Diane have recorded a visual montage of interesting and historical sights.  Many iconic and unusual local scenes of landscapes, ranching, aerials, people, plants and animals.   Bob was a Navy photographer and taught photography for summer school at Northern Arizona University.  He later worked for two Fortune 500 companies in California as a public relations executive; and has been involved in photography in one way or another since the early 1950s.   Diane, a retired secretary, became very interested in the creative art of photography, and the two combine their talents to make a huge variety of images to delight and intrigue.

Mike discovered lariats and has been fashioning them into bowls, platters and mirror frames ever since. The lariats are used from 10-15 times, then retired as riders are concerned that they lose strength. Cowgirls use lariats that are color coded to their riding outfits so they make a very colorful bowl or platter. Mike is a native of Washington, DC who now makes his home in Las Cruces.
