Patina Gallery, 131 W. Palace Ave., 505-986-3432 Jeweler Claire Kahn grew up accompanying her father, a professor, on yearlong stays in Italy where he was teaching. On a recent return trip, she created a new body of work. “For me, the Italian experience represents a deep, profound respect for beauty and quality, highly crafted work, and Italy’s historical places, all of which are imbued with splendor,” she states. The Couleurs of Claire Kahn opens with a 5 p.m. reception on Friday, Dec. 18.
