Brad­ford J. Sala­mon: Mer­curochrome 2015, oil on can­vas

Gi­a­cobbe-Fritz Fine Art, 702 Canyon Road, 505-986 -1156 Although he is known for his por­traits of artists, mu­si­cians, and writ­ers, Brad­ford J. Sala­mon’s new works are pain­terly com­po­si­tions that in­clude images of vin­tage ob­jects such as an­tique ra­dios, type­writ­ers, medicine bot­tles, tins, fur­ni­ture, and clas­sic cars. “I will paint peo­ple for­ever, as they are al­ways im­por­tant to me,” he writes. “But my fas­ci­na­tion with inan­i­mate ob­jects and the sto­ries they tell bring me back to a dif­fer­ent time when it makes me move into the mind­set of a designer or in­ven­tor who thought with 1920 ref­er­ences. Old glass bot­tles, iconog­ra­phy, out-of-date sewing ma­chines, their shapes, and how they work stim­u­late me to see the world with fresh per­cep­tions.” An ex­hibit of his paint­ings opens with a 5 p.m. re­cep­tion on Fri­day, June 12.

Dis­ap­pear­ing Act, an ex­hibit of her paint­ings, opens Fri­day, June 12, with a 5 p.m. re­cep­tion.
