Maude Andrade, U-7

Harwood Studio Artist since: 2004
I split my time between creating mixed media paintings and designing/silk-screening a line of t-shirts.  I was born in Memphis, Tennessee into a family of artists and eccentrics and have lived in California, Maine and New Hampshire, but I’ve spent the most time New Mexico.  In 1987, I graduated from the University of New Hampshire with a Bachelor of Science in Botany and a minor in Chemistry, and began a career in textile design, earning national recognition for my surface designed hand woven clothing. Through classes at the Harwood Art Center and mentoring from influential New Mexico artists, I began painting in 2005.  My paintings have been included in exhibits at the Albuquerque Museum, the Museum of Fine Arts in Santa Fe,  Mariposa Gallery in Albuquerque, and Patina Gallery, in Santa Fe.  My t-shirts can be found on my website, Etsy, and locally at the Mariposa Gallery and Izzy Marin.

What Does the Harwood Mean to You?

Harwood Art Center is my sanctuary and my connection to the community.  It’s unusual and amazing to have these opposing forces satisfied in one place.  The Harwood community enriches my life because of studio artists, staff, teachers, and exhibits.

Former Harwood Employee

In 1992, I answered a HELP WANTED ad for substitute teachers at Escuela del Sol Montessori. There I met Friedje, who astutely noticed I had some experience in organizing artists and arts organizations. I began searching for interested artists and set out creating art workshops for the community. We soon began offering about 30 workshops, in everything from pinhole photography, drawing, performance art, to ceramics, mask making, video production and more.  After this successful summer session, I was offered a managerial position and began to see what could come of the newly minted “Harwood Art Center.”  After about one year we had 65 amazing artists in the studios, with a growing waiting list of well over 50 people, a working performance space, dance floor and darkroom, various gallery spaces, as well as classes just about every night of the week.
