Third Friday: Six mid-month opening receptions worth visiting tonight
Walker Fine Art: Mark Penner Howell, "Lotus Soup," acrylic and ink on canvas.
If you think Third Friday is an invention of the Art District on Santa Fe, think again. You can give them credit, perhaps, and Santa Fe will be aglow with happenings tonight. But that doesn't explain the profusion of excellent shows opening tonight in other gallery districts all over town. Give thanks! And check these out:
In the Golden Triangle, Walker Fine Art will showcase a riot of artists at tonight's reception from 6 to 9 p.m.: Featured in the front of the gallery will be Altered Reality (breathtaking layered photographs by Bonny Lhotka) and Horizons: Shades from a Nether World (sculptures by Norman Epps); in the back, new works by Brigan Gresh, Mark Penner-Howell and Don Quade debut.
Walker Fine Art: Bonny Lhotka, "Garden Glass," 2011 pigment on aluminum, 40"x60".
And Goodwin Fine Art, a newcomer to the neighborhood, declares itself open and ready for business with the group show Works on Paper, which covers a wide swath of styles and mediums, all tied together by a paper thread. The opening is from 5 to 10 p.m., and the show continues through October 15.
Goodwin Fine Art: Christopher Brown, "Sheet Music."
