GF Contemporary, 707 Canyon Road, 505-983-3707 Sculptor Pascal Pierme celebrates 20 years exhibiting in the City Different in 20ème Anniversaire à Santa Fe. Inspired at a young age by the wood sculpture of his grandfather, the French-born artist crafts abstract geometric forms incorporating his own handmade resins and surface treatments. “Wood has its own intelligence. It knows many things, and it teaches them to me. In this way, I understand what I want to do with it, so that the final image reflects its innate qualities as well as my own thoughts and feelings,” he writes. A reception with the artist is Friday, Aug. 12, at 5 p.m.
