Alberto Gálvez: Verde Aguamarina
2017, oil on linen
Nüart Gallery, 670 Canyon Road, 505-988-3888 New paintings by Alberto Gálvez go on view starting Friday, Sept. 8, at Nüart Gallery. Gálvez’s large-scale portraits have delicate tonal quality — the result of his use of the Renaissance grisaille technique, in which translucent colors are applied over monochromatic underpainting. He captures the contemplative gaze and symmetry of the human face in his images of contemporary women. The exhibition La Naturalista: Iconos de Luz opens with a 5 p.m. reception.
