Pasatiempo - - UPCOMING EVENTS -

Gi­a­cobbe-Fritz Fine Art, 702 Canyon Road, 505-986-1156 “Most artists, at any stage in their ca­reer, are con­stantly build­ing on their past as they cre­ate their fu­ture work,” writes Ben Steele. “So, any given show, or rou­tine day in the stu­dio, for that mat­ter — is a ret­ro­spec­tive.” Steele in­fuses his paint­ings with im­agery drawn from art his­tory and pop cul­ture iconog­ra­phy. His com­po­si­tions mimic the look of col­or­ing books, chil­dren’s draw­ings, and vin­tage ad­ver­tise­ments. Ben Steele: A Retro Per­spec­tive opens with a 5 p.m. re­cep­tion on Fri­day, June 17.
