Herb Smith: Finch 2015, oil on panel

Pasatiempo - - IN THE WINGS -

Beals & Co. Show­room, 830 Canyon Road, 505-357-0441 “Since the be­gin­ning I was in­ter­ested in paint­ing wildlife, es­pe­cially birds,” writes artist Herb Smith, whose ex­hi­bi­tion In­hab­i­tants opens Fri­day, Feb. 17. Smith, a na­tive New Yorker, is a birder as well as painter. His stately por­traits set against plain back­grounds al­low the viewer to fo­cus on his sub­jects, which he ren­ders to con­vey a sense of the birds’ spirit and char­ac­ter. The re­cep­tion for In­hab­i­tants is at 5 p.m.
