2017, oil on panel

Meyer Gallery, 225 Canyon Road, 505-983-1434 Paint­ing in a style rem­i­nis­cent of Amer­i­can colo­nial and Euro­pean clas­si­cal tra­di­tions, Santa Fe-based artist Fa­tima Ron­quillo cre­ates evoca­tive pic­to­rial images, blend­ing rich sym­bol­ism with cherub-like fig­ures who of­ten ap­pear lost in rever­ies of love and long­ing. Her sub­jects are ren­dered in pas­toral set­tings that evoke the time­less land­scapes of myth. “Th­ese works are a con­tin­u­a­tion of the flora and fauna and blind love themes that I’ve been work­ing on the past cou­ple of years,” she said in a state­ment. “But this time there is a bit more magic.” Mad Enchantment, her lat­est ex­hi­bi­tion, opens with a 5 p.m. re­cep­tion on Fri­day, Sept. 15.
