Pasatiempo - - IN THE WINGS -

Kennedy Alumni Hall, New Mex­ico High­lands Univer­sity, 905 Univer­sity Ave., Las Ve­gas, New Mex­ico, 505-425-7511 Artist Duke Sundt, a for­mer bronc and bull rider on the rodeo cir­cuit, turned his tal­ent for con­struct­ing pa­pier-mâché rodeo scenes into the bronze sculp­tures for which he’s known. He’s a fea­tured artist and the cu­ra­tor of NMHU’s ex­hi­bi­tion Re­flec­tions of the West, which opens with a 4 p.m. re­cep­tion on Fri­day, Aug. 4. The show co­in­cides with Las Ve­gas Her­itage Week and in­cludes works by painter Kim­berly Reed-Deemer, pho­tog­ra­pher Scott Vail, sculp­tor Noble Brooks Read, and other re­gional artists. “This ex­hibit re­flects the spirit of New Mex­ico, which will cause some peo­ple view­ing it to re­flect upon their own mem­o­ries and ex­pe­ri­ences of our state,” Sundt said in a state­ment. The ex­hibit is on view through Aug. 28.
