Pasatiempo - - IN THE WINGS -

Peters Projects, 1011 Paseo de Per­alta, 505-954-5800 Navajo artist Chris­tine Nofchissey McHorse’s first solo ex­hi­bi­tion at Peters Projects draws from her Dark Light series, com­pris­ing works in ce­ramic, steel, bronze, and draw­ings that were cre­ated be­tween 1997 and the present. Her work re­flects a mod­ernist in­flu­ence by way of tra­di­tional Pue­blo and Navajo aes­thet­ics trans­formed into or­ganic, pri­mor­dial shapes and forms. The show opens Fri­day, Aug. 12, with a 5 p.m. re­cep­tion. This is the in­au­gu­ral ex­hi­bi­tion of the new Peters Projects Ce­ram­ics & De­sign pro­gram, helmed by di­rec­tor and cu­ra­tor Mark Del Vec­chio. McHorse joins Del Vec­chio and lead­ing ce­ramic scholar Garth Clark for a discussion on Saturday, Aug. 13, at 11 a.m.
