A peek at what’s show­ing around town

Sharon Booma: Com­plex

and Sub­tle, 2009, oil and mixed me­dia on panel. Sharon Booma’s deeply tex­tured ab­stract mixed-me­dia works are on view at Le­wAllen Gal­leries (129W. Palace Ave., 988-8997). The artist de­scribes her process: “The very ges­ture of adding ma­te­ri­als to the sur­face is very defin­ing and a pow­er­ful move­ment. I feel var­i­ous added el­e­ments keep the color shapes and move­ments in check.” Sharon Booma: Still Re­mained in Plain View opens with a 5:30 p.m. re­cep­tion on Fri­day, March 5.

Su­san Ro­maine: By Passed, 2009, oil on linen. Town and coun­try, nat­u­ral and man-made, ab­stract and rep­re­sen­ta­tional— all take form in Land­scape Pat­terns, a show of more than 20 paint­ings by gallery artists at Peter­son-Cody Gallery. The exhibit opens with a 5 p.m. re­cep­tion on Fri­day, March 5. The gallery is at 130W. Palace Ave. (820-0010).

Brad Sch­wieger: Cut Vase, 2010, soda-fired stoneware. Brad Sch­wieger’s vase is rem­i­nis­cent in form and dec­o­ra­tion of Art Nou­veau and Deco ce­ram­ics. The piece ap­pears in the exhibit 2010 Sum­mer Work­shop Artists

Preview— along with the work, sculp­tural and func­tional, of the other artists who will be teach­ing at Santa Fe Clay Stu­dios later this year. The show opens with a re­cep­tion at 5 p.m. Fri­day, March 5, at Santa Fe Clay (1615 Paseo de Per­alta; 984-1122).

Con­cha [Or­tiz y Pino de Kleven] tend­ing to spring lambs on Agua Verde Ranch,

pho­tog­ra­pher un­known, circa 1950. The woman known al­most uni­ver­sally as Con­cha seemed to have time for every­one and ev­ery­thing. Con­cha was born two years be­fore New Mex­ico joined the union, and life of the woman who did so much to ben­e­fit the state is cel­e­brated in a new exhibit of pho­to­graphs and other items. Women of New Mex­ico:

Con­cha Or­tiz y Pino de Kleven (1910-2006) is cur­rently on view at the Mu­seum of Span­ish Colo­nial Art (750 Camino Lejo, off Mu­seum Hill; 982-2226). Con­cha was a three-term state leg­is­la­tor and the first woman elected ma­jor­ity whip in a U.S. state leg­is­la­ture. Through­out her ca­reer, she pro­moted His­panic cul­ture, women’s rights, and ed­u­ca­tion and was ap­pointed to na­tional boards by three pres­i­dents. Im­age cour­tesy Palace of the Gov­er­nors Photo Archives (NMHM/DCA), Neg. No. 59021.

Kevin Gorges: Cinzia and

Bubba, 2008, oil on panel. Sub­sti­tute an er­mine for the pooch, and Kevin Gorges’ styl­ized por­trait re­calls Leonardo’s paint­ing of Ce­cilia Gallerani. His ren­der­ing of an Ar­ca­dian land­scape also has its roots in Re­nais­sance paint­ing. Gorges comes by th­ese in­flu­ences nat­u­rally: for sev­eral years, he taught at the Florence Academy of Art in Italy. Aura, a oneper­son exhibit of his work, is on view at Sage Creek Gallery (200 Old Santa Fe Trail, 988-3444).
