Margaretta Caesar



Margaretta Caesar began painting and drawing at a very early age. "My mother was an artist. She always encouraged me to pursue my passion in art. Whenever there was a cloudy day or an “I’m bored” moment the art supplies would come out and I’d be off on some artistic adventure.

With that kind of freedom and encouragement, I gained a confidence that allows me today to break the rules. I use color freely and passionately. I love to play with light and shadow using all the “wrong” colors."


Margaretta was featured in the article "Eyes on the Skies" in the August 2013 Southwest Art Magazine.


Margaretta's brilliantly colored landscape paintings are reminiscent of the earlier Fauve paintings as well as the extraordinary group of New Mexico painters from the 1940s through today. They are not only beautiully painted, they are also full of joy and the excitement of these Western landscapes.

Last chance to purchase Margaretta's work from the Gallery. As of May 15th we will no longer be able to represent her work as she is off to other venues.


The top six paintings will be in our 28th Anniversary Show.
I cannot quite decide which one I like best, but these are truly beautiful. Those color harmonies and beautiful compoistions of trees and plains and mountains are just gorgeous!
