2016, oil on linen

Pasatiempo - - IN THE WINGS -

Nüart Gallery, 670 Canyon Road, 505-988-3888 Al­berto Gálvez’s largescale paint­ings of faces are made us­ing the Re­nais­sance gri­saille tech­nique, with translu­cent glazes ap­plied over monochro­matic colors. The re­sults are con­tem­po­rary por­traits with a time­less feel. In the ex­hibit La Bella Jar­dinera, Gálvez, a paint­ing pro­fes­sor at the School of Fine Arts in Va­len­cia, Spain, com­bines the gri­saille tech­nique with imagery in­spired by the works of such En­light­en­ment-era botan­i­cal il­lus­tra­tors as El­iz­a­beth Black­well, Mar­i­anne North, and Edith Holden. The show opens with a 5 p.m. re­cep­tion on Fri­day, Sept. 2.
