Collection: Vogel, Jim

Jim Vogel was born in Roswell, New Mexico, in 1964, the eleventh of twelve children. His parents encouraged him to pursue drawing and painting, allowing his natural talents to develop without formal training. Growing up in Roswell, Vogel was exposed to and influenced by regional artists such as Peter Hurd, Luis Jimenez, Elmer Schooley, Howard Cook, and Georgia O’Keefe through his many visits to the Roswell Museum of Art.

Vogel paints to tell the stories of New Mexico, the stories told to him by his grandfather, his mother, and his friends and neighbors of the Embudo Valley, as well as the land itself. He believes that when they are recreated properly, these stories transcend the region and become universal.

Vogel’s wife Christen is also an artist, and the two collaborate on framing his paintings using her creative salvage arts talents. “Our greatest collaboration has been our three children, Grayson, Sage, and Makaela, who are all amazing young adults pursuing their own creative paths.”

Vogel received the New Mexico Governor’s Award for Excellence in the Arts in 2016. His work has been represented by Blue Rain Gallery in Santa Fe, New Mexico, for over eighteen years.
