An intriguing variety of art is on display in a trio of exhibitions opening at the New Mexico Museum of Art on Friday, Sept. 20. Two examples of work from these shows illustrate their range: one is a casual-looking watercolor mark on notebook paper by Richard Tuttle, and the other is a layered collage of 26,645 hand-cut, photocopied paper butterflies, stained with tea and coffee, by Tasha Ostrander.

The intent of Celebrating Collections, the umbrella title for the multiple exhibitions, is to explore the motives behind collecting from the point of view of both collectors and museums. More than 20 works from the museum’s permanent collection are highlighted in Collecting Is Curiosity/Inquiry, presented by Laura Addison, NMMA’s curator of contemporary art. James Drake and Min Kim Park are among the artists whose work is included.
