Pasatiempo - - PASA WEEK -

Pop Gallery, 125 Lin­coln Ave., 505-820-0788 Sum­mer was hot, but Septem­ber is hot­ter at Pop Gallery with the ex­hi­bi­tion Septem­ber Siz­zles. The show in­cludes new ab­stract works by painters Nigel Con­way and Cole­man Mills and the jazz paint­ings of Clif­ford Bai­ley. Con­way in­cludes im­ages from his se­ries The Lis­ten­ers, which fea­ture kind­hearted, em­pa­thetic char­ac­ters rec­og­niz­able by their pro­nounced lips and eyes. Mills, an avid out­doors­man, is in­flu­enced by time spent in na­ture and em­ploys mnemonic de­vices in his ab­stract com­po­si­tions, which deal with me­mory and place. Bai­ley’s jazz- and cin­ema-themed works in­duce nos­tal­gia for the past with scenes in­spired by nightlife of the 1920s, Univer­sal Stu­dios’ mon­sters of the ‘30s, and the art of Gus­tave Klimt, Toulouse-Lautrec, and Walt Dis­ney. The show opens Fri­day, Sept. 1, with a re­cep­tion sched­uled for Sept. 30 at 5 p.m.
