NM Visions and Kathryn A. Hayden
NM Visions by Kathryn A. Hayden goes beyond a mere moment in time. Her works convey an untold and timeless story beyond what is first captured through the lens. She brings “personality” and texture to the scene she has captured. She identifies strongly with Michelango’s description of his art: “The best artist has that thought alone Which is contained within the marble shell; The sculptor's hand can only break the spell To free the figures slumbering in the stone.” And that is the Story that she aims to free as both photographer and visual storyteller.
Kathryn has been seeing and documenting these visual stories for more than 20 years. While her commercial work in photography has been available for clients for many years, she more recently began offering her New Mexico "visions" to the public in conjunction with her move from the outskirts of Taos to her new studio location in the heart of the artists district in Taos, on Kit Carson Road.
Kathryn's work has been shown throughout the Northern New Mexico in shows and permanent collections, including Amore Gallery, Las Comadres Gallery, Wilder Nightingale Gallery, Taos Print & Photography Services, Harwood Museum, Millicent Rogers Museum, New Mexico Arts League, Taos Fall Arts Show, the Gorge Restaurant, People's Bank, and the Taos Visitors Center. Kathryn is also a board member of the Taos Gallery Association.
