Carla Forrest, Contemporary Painter
Painting the New West
Patio Escondido, 404 C-5 San Felipe NW,
Old town Albuquerque, New Mexico 87104
"I approach painting as an observer of the soul, enlightening the viewer about the presence, wonder, and dignity of nature and life. I want the viewer to value place and person in a space of spirit and heart and bring this illumination into their personal environments."
Award-winning contemporary artist Carla Forrest paints the New West in her spectral luminescent works, inspired by direct observation of nature and life. Honored as a Local Treasure by the Albuquerque Arts Business Association, Carla obtained her Bachelor in studio art from State University of New York, Master of Science in Teaching Visual Arts from Rochester Institute of Technology, and Doctorate in Organizational Learning and Instructional Technologies from the University of New Mexico. Carla Forrest Fine Art Studio & Gallery opened in September 2018, nestled in serene Patio Escondido in Old Town Albuquerque, with exclusive focus on Carla’s contemporary fine art.
