Hearts and Flowers and Skeeter Leard
Skeeter Leard was the featured solo artist in Vertu’s Baca Gallery; her exhibit run through March.
Well known locally, Skeeter was a founding member of Friends of the Bosque, and was one of the primary organizers of the Fine Arts Show at the Festival of the Cranes. One of the founders of the Fullingim-Isenhour-Leard Gallery which originated in the Juan José Baca House, Skeeter has lived and created in the Socorro area for more than 25 years. She is well-known for her pastel and acrylic work and her love of horses. Many new works have been created for this exhibit; and Vertu is excited to be the first to show them. Included in the display will be one piece that is not for sale; a portrait of Stella, one of Skeeter’s horses, which is and will remain in Skeeter’s private collection.
