Small & Sacred: Paintings by William Acheff
Small & Sacred, featuring still life compositions by William Acheff, will open with an artist’s reception from 1 - 3 PM on Saturday, August 10th. This show will feature over 30 small, lifelike paintings, most of which are no larger than 10 by 12 inches. In honor of his collectors, Acheff has reserved approximately half of the paintings for the opening, when they will be available for sale for the first time.
“These smaller works are particularly striking,” says Gallery Owner Nedra Matteucci. “The paintings draw us in — creating the sense of a shared secret — offering a story that is both intimate and transformative.” Quiet, meditative, and captivating, Acheff’s work reflects various traditions, spirituality, and life in another time. His career has spanned over 50 years, and he has painted artifacts from the Pueblo Indians since his move to Taos in 1973.
