Thayer Carter (1942-present)
Thayer Carter is a painter and printmaker whose work has been inspired by over 30 years of travels throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico, Europe, Asia and South America. His pictures, on paper and canvas, are strongly influenced by early American Modernists. The landscapes that attract him come from both the natural and built environment, and are diverse in their subject matter. The woodblock prints we carry primarily represent the landscapes of northern New Mexico.
Carter attended the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and The Art Students League in New York. His work has been exhibited in New York, Boston, Seattle, Santa Fe and Cuenca, Ecuador, with work published in the United States and Europe. Carter was Head Fabricator for the Exhibitions Division of the Museum of New Mexico for 18 years. He currently lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
