Chris May­nard: Jay Spray 1

2016, blue and gold macaw sec­ondary feath­ers

Pasatiempo - - PASA WEEK -

Ger­ald Peters Gallery, 1005 Paseo de Per­alta, 505-954-5700 Nat­u­rally shed feath­ers cut with eye-surgery tools and ar­ranged into sculp­tural forms make up The Art of Chris May­nard at Ger­ald Peters Gallery. “My ideas are in­spired by the birds them­selves, like a flight se­quence or a cer­tain pose,” he writes. “Or they are in­spired by the shape or color of a par­tic­u­lar feather. Or they are in­spired by an at­tribute of feath­ers: flight, tran­scen­dence, hope, bridges be­tween worlds and es­cape. They are in our dreams. They are full of metaphor.” May­nard’s show opens in con­junc­tion with Two Works, an in­vi­ta­tional in which par­tic­i­pat­ing artists con­trib­ute two dis­tinct works apiece, and Gwynn Mur­rill: Near­ing Na­ture, an ex­hibit of Mur­rill’s sculp­tures. The re­cep­tion for all shows is Fri­day, June 24, at 5 p.m.
