Maynard Dixon is considered by many art collectors to be the premier artist of the West. His ability to capture the land and its inhabitants, in a nonjudgmental and honest way, has left an indelible legacy.
The Maynard Dixon Museum is a little less than an hour flight from Albuquerque to Tucson Arizona. “ The hundred dollar Southwest flight is well worth it,” says Dr. Mark Sublette who is the Museum’s founder and Maynard Dixon expert. Sublette goes on to say “The Museum has tried to capture the essence of Dixon, the artist as well as the individual, through not only his artwork but through his letters and poetry.” Sublette’s Maynard Dixon Museum, the only museum dedicated to the lifework of Maynard Dixon, has succeeded in that goal. Artwork including paintings, drawings, and original Maynard Dixon ephemera can be seen at the Museum. The Maynard Dixon Museum, located within Medicine Man Gallery in Tucson, is a treasure trove for those who love Dixon.
Dixon’s original easel resides in the museum. Many artists have made the pilgrimage just to see its copious drips of blue paint. The easel, with its Pollock like surface, succinctly captures a fifty-year time frame of Dixon’s innate color sensibilities.
