Micaela Gardner: Kachina Tenement 2016, oil and pastel on panel
Center for Contemporary Arts, 1050 Old Pecos Trail, 505-982-1338 Santa Fe-based artist Micaela Gardner’s exhibit Tomorrow’s Yesterday Home opens Friday, Feb. 17, with a 5 p.m. reception. Ten of Gardner’s recent paintings made on Alder panels are on display. Her compositions are abstract and gestural, but taken together, they make up a loose narrative in which she envisions a re-habitation of ancient dwelling sites and ruins. “With these paintings, I imagine a fantastic re-occupation of places like Bandelier, during and after an environmental apocalypse,” she says in a statement.
