A long way to trib­u­tary

Pasatiempo - - Mixed Media -

The Santa Fe River takes the stage in the new­est exhibit at the Santa Fe Com­mu­nity Con­ven­tion Cen­ter’s Com­mu­nity Gallery. Works by nearly 30 artists bring into di­a­logue ideas about the river’s past, present, and fu­ture.

Me­an­der: Works In­spired by the Santa Fe River in­cludes re­al­is­tic paint­ings and pho­to­graphs as well as sculp­tures and other three-di­men­sional works. One of the big­gest pieces is Matthew Chase-Daniel’s construction from branches and other ob­jects, which mea­sures about 10 feet by 6 feet by 3 feet and hangs from the ceil­ing. El­iz­a­beth Hunt’s con­tri­bu­tion con­sists of 13 aquar­i­ums (with bub­blers, fil­ters, and ce­ramic fish) stacked into a cel­lu­lar construction.

Artist Bob­bie Besold’s work in­cludes bags of wa­ter from var­i­ous rivers and tap wa­ter. “Gifts From the Santa Fe River” is the theme of the in­stal­la­tion by Do­minique Mazeaud; its el­e­ments in­clude heart-shaped rocks and a pair of baby shoes the artist found dur­ing river walks.

Me­an­der opens with a re­cep­tion from 5 to 7 p.m. on Fri­day, April 9, and runs through June 5. Pub­lic work­shops, per­for­mances, and pre­sen­ta­tions are planned in con­junc­tion with the exhibit. The con­ven­tion cen­ter is at 201 W. Marcy St. Call 955-6705 for more in­for­ma­tion.
