Mark Hanham: La Sagrada Familia in Miniature 2015, acrylic on canvas
Lacuna Galleries, 124 W. Palace Ave., 505-467-8424 Sydney-based painter Mark Hanham’s street scenes and bird’s-eye views of cityscapes are featured in Far Horizons – Experience Europe on the Palette and on the Palate, an exhibit on the theme of Americans’ and Australians’ experiences of Europe. Hanham’s compositions focus on linear forms rendered in quick, energetic marks comparable to Action painting. Flashes of brilliant color enliven his near-monochromatic paintings. The show opens with a 5 p.m. reception on Friday, Aug. 7. Lacuna transforms its courtyard into a Paris street market and café for the event, offering edible French treats and champagne.
