Pho­tog­ra­pher Jo Wha­ley has spent the past few years doc­u­ment­ing the art and ar­chi­tec­ture of the Scot­tish Rite Ma­sonic Cen­ter for a forth­com­ing book on the build­ing, whose star­tling pink fa­cade has greeted passersby on Paseo de Per­alta for over a cen­tury. Its the­ater is stocked with dozens of his­toric painted back­drops, which Wha­ley used as the ba­sis for a se­ries of orig­i­nal photo com­po­si­tions called Stage Stills, on view in Al­coves 16/17 #6, the sixth in a year­long ex­hi­bi­tion se­ries at the New Mex­ico Mu­seum of Art (107 W. Palace Ave.). The ex­hibit also in­cludes solo in­stal­la­tions by Chris Collins, Christy Ge­org, Jami Porter Lara, and Valerie Roy­bal. On the cover is a de­tail of Wha­ley’s Miss­ing Script, an archival pig­ment print from 2016.
