Art Ex­change Gallery, 60 E. San Fran­cisco St. Ste. 210, 505-603-4485 “The stark re­al­ity of na­ture stirs my need to cap­ture a sub­ject,” states artist Greg Allen. “I want the viewer to ex­pe­ri­ence that same emo­tion to which I was drawn.” Raised in Carls­bad, Allen’s artis­tic abil­i­ties were nur­tured from an early age. His re­gional land­scapes re­call the works of Ernest Martin Hen­nings, whom he cred­its as an in­flu­ence, along with Wal­ter Ufer and May­nard Dixon. A re­cep­tion for Col­ors of the South­west, an ex­hibit of Allen’s paint­ings, takes place Satur­day, July 8, at 3 p.m.
