Louisa McEl­wain (1953-2013): Pas­ture Spring

Pasatiempo - - IN THE WINGS -

2016, oil on can­vas

Evoke Con­tem­po­rary, 550 S. Guadalupe St., 505-995-9902 Louisa McEl­wain and Friends is a group show of works by McEl­wain and se­lected art from her pri­vate col­lec­tion. McEl­wain’s con­tem­po­rary land­scapes are ren­dered in thick strokes that lend her ex­pres­sion­is­tic com­po­si­tions a feel­ing of dy­namism. She worked fast, us­ing trow­els and pal­ette knives to cre­ate plein-air land­scapes. “My process is an in­quiry into the sen­su­ous po­ten­tial of paint,” she once wrote. The show opens Fri­day, March 31, with a re­cep­tion at 5 p.m.
