Pasatiempo - - PASA WEEK -

Blue Rain Gallery, 130-C Lin­coln Ave., 505-954-9902 Wyan­dot ce­ramist Richard Zane Smith’s ex­hi­bi­tion Evolv­ing Ideas con­tin­ues through May 14. Draw­ing from Na­tive pot­tery tra­di­tions, Smith cre­ates tex­tured and in­cised sur­faces and dec­o­ra­tive flo­ral mo­tifs in earthy col­ors and lin­ear pat­terns. “From my roots in the Anasazi tra­di­tion,” he writes, “I’ve branched off, adding col­ors or a dif­fer­ent shape even an­other cul­tural el­e­ment. But I know I can al­ways go back to the main trunk and be in­spired — I’ve never ex­hausted the artis­tic pos­si­bil­i­ties.”
