James Magee
"Meet Death at the Front Door"

James Magee

East Gallery
August 6 - August 30, 2022

Opening Reception:

Saturday, August 6, 6pm-9pm


For the past few decades, the brilliant genius, El Paso based 77-year-old artist/poet/engineer James Magee, has been constructing a monument, few have seen in the Chihuahua desert. Located on 2000 acres east of El Paso, “The Hill” is truly one of the artistic monument wonders of America. “The Hill” is not earth art or sculpture. It is a monument that is analogous to the temples of Mesoamerica or various regions of Asia. Very few paintings of the monument exist. While undergoing 33 days of medical treatments in Houston, Magee created 33 paintings. He was treated in the morning and created one painting that afternoon.

Redbud Gallery East is hosting an inaugural showing of these paintings from August 6, 2022 through August 30, 2022. Each framed and signed work is priced at $1500 and all proceeds will be donated to the nonprofit Cornudas Mountain Foundation which governs the site. 

You are invited to come and view or purchase these paintings. Free and open to the public.
