Nathan Bennett: Industry, Commitment, Diligence
2017, patinas on bronze
Blue Rain Gallery, 544 S. Guadalupe St., 505-954-9902 Artist Nathan Bennett creates luminous landscapes with an air of magic and a hint of nostalgia using patinas as his medium. He applies compounds such as silver, iron, and copper to a silicon bronze plate and heats them to merge the compounds with the metal. An exhibition of new works called Of Metal and Fire, which feature trains in misty winter settings and atmospheric landscapes, opens Friday, June 9, with a 5 p.m. reception.
