Pasatiempo - - EXHIBITIONISM -

GF Con­tem­po­rary, 707 Canyon Road, 505-983-3707 Seat­tle-based artist Katie Metz joins lo­cal artist Clay­ton Porter for the joint ex­hi­bi­tion Ur­ban Cow­boy, open­ing Fri­day, Sept. 8, with a 5 p.m. reception. Metz cre­ates elab­o­rate cityscapes by us­ing a sin­gle-edge blade to scratch and scrape away paint in a tech­nique called “scratch­board paint­ing.” Porter takes the thrilling mo­ments of rodeo bronc-bust­ing and ren­ders them in mi­nus­cule on white back­grounds us­ing col­ored pencil.
