Patrick McFarlin: The Goldfinch 2014, bronze and oil on panel
Peters Projects, 1011 Paseo de Peralta, 505-954-5800 More than 50 artists were invited to present artwork for The Goldfinch Variations. Each artist submitted an interpretation of The Goldfinch, a 17thcentury tromp l’oeil painting by Dutch artist Carel Fabritius (16221654), staying within a size limitation that matches the original painting. The exhibition includes works by the show’s curator Patrick McFarlin, and by local artists Marty Horowitz, Gloria Graham, and Eugene Newmann. The title is a take on Bach’s 1741 composition The Goldberg Variations. The 5 p.m. opening reception is on Thursday, April 30.
