Men with Candy, a playful frolic in oil on canvas, opens Saturday, July 24, from 5 to 9 p.m. with sweet treats and libations at the studio of Taos artist Carrie Schultz, located just across the courtyard from the Blumenschein Museum, 222 Ledoux Street.

It’s through his incredible images that the 52-year-old, Taos-based aerial photographer shares the rarefied air he inhabits in the early mornings and late afternoons, when the skies are their calmest and the landscapes adorned in the most brilliant light.
