Cruzando
Henry Morales and Kerry Bergen's Cruzando is a journey of two artists crossing external borders in ancient and futuristic worlds. The artists' illustrations intersect with nature, animals and people as vehicles to connect at different points in space and time. The fusion of culture and fantasy creates a dialogue of travel across time and connects the viewer with past, present and future worlds. Cruzando will be on display at the KiMo Theatre art gallery from December 14, 2017 to February 5, 2018.

Thais Mather | Reckless Abandon
“I think people are getting these catastrophic feelings, that this is the end,” says Thais Mather. “I don’t believe in that. I think this is a beginning.” The feminist artist’s new exhibition, Reckless Abandon, comes at a time of cultural, political and environmental upheaval. It’s an ideal moment to examine human history from a revolutionary stance—and present urgent questions that can reveal a new path forward. Through a monumental art installation and an interconnected series of performances and events, Mather will challenge viewers to abandon patriarchal structures in favor of a transcendent vision for humanity. $5-$10 suggested donation

Jhenna Quinn Lewis: Solo Exhibition
In Jhenna Quinn Lewis' focused still life paintings, little birds perch next to elegant Japanese bowls, exist peacefully among stacks of frayed books, or mischievously hold shiny found objects in their small pointed beaks. The elusive animals explore romantic environments away from their natural habitat, bringing a Renaissance or folklore-feel to her graceful, simplistic compositions. However a recent artist residency in California's Lassen Volcanic National Park afforded Lewis the space, emotionally and physically, to observe birds in the wild. This experience has influenced many new paintings for her upcoming exhibition at Meyer Gallery, which opens on Friday, December 15th and runs through December 31st.

Voices: Kiyomi Baird, David A. Clark, Carlos Frias, Hernan Gomez Chavez, Mario Martinez, August Muth, Somers Randolph, and Nola Zirin
This exhibition will reveal to the collectors of Santa Fe a first glimpse of the haunting, encaustic monoprints of David A. Clark. His compelling and insistent use of the symbol of the arrow demands engagement; and his subtle mastery of the encaustic medium is deeply impressive. In a tradition of printmaking where encaustic is frequently used to create luscious and flowing patterns, Clark’s bravura is on display as he manipulates wax, paint, and stencils to evoke images and angles reminiscent of the past.
