Bret Price: Lemon Zest 2016, powder-coated hand-fabricated steel
Owen Contemporary, 225 Canyon Road, 505-820-0807 Shapes and surfaces are explored respectively in the works of sculptor Bret Price and painter Martha Rea Baker. Baker’s abstract canvases are built up in layers that retain glimpses of what lies beneath, as though a history, only hinted at on the surface, is buried inside each composition. Price’s elegant linear sculptures have a sense of flowing motion, like writing that has been realized in three dimensions. The two-person show, Shapes and Surfaces, opens with a reception at 5 p.m. on Friday, July 21.
