New Mexico PBS weekly art series ¡COLORES!

9:00 p.m. on Ch.5.1, and repeats: Sundays at 4:30 p.m. on Ch.9.1

For over 20 years, in a variety of formats, New Mexico PBS’ multi-award- winning ¡COLORES! series and specials have explored the arts, music, history and culture of New Mexico and the American southwest. ¡COLORES! stories, originating from New Mexico, can continue to be seen and shared with other PBS stations across the U.S.

In keeping with its long history, ¡COLORES!, continues to be devoted to sharing local and national stories focusing on the creative spirit, about film, visual and performing arts, theater, photography, literature, painting, sculpture, poetry and dance. ¡COLORES! provides an in-depth look at the inspiration, challenges and processes of a wide range of artists.


¡COLORES! airing Friday, February 7 at 9:00 pm on Ch.5.1, features:

“Willy Bo Richardson, The Impressionists, Regional Theater, Jack Ross”

New Mexico painter Willy Bo Richardson shares how discovering real world limitations allows him greater flexibility in the moment.

“What’s beautiful about painting is that it does everything that you want it to in that moment. So you have the materials, you have the artist and you have the action and they are all coming together instantaneously.”
