Kenton Nelson: Wait 2008, oil on canvas
Peters Projects, 1011 Paseo de Peralta, 505-954-5800 The exhibition Kenton Nelson: Present Tense continues at Peters Projects. Nelson, who has a background in illustration, makes bold representational works that reflect a midcentury ambience. His use of contrast in still-lifes and narrative scenes lend his works a heightened sense of drama. The gallery is also showing Kent Monkman: Failure of Modernity and Ray Turner: Population. The exhibits are on view through March 12.
