Exploring the space between what is certain and what is uncertain Alex Peña takes us on a rich visual tour. Pseudo writing and un-squared image areas contrast with the absoluteness of a tree firmly rooted in the ground or straight lines in a struggle to find “what is certain and uncertain” in life. Peña leaves us to make our own determinations as his art has no easy answers; sometimes revealing the artist’s inner thoughts as much as obscuring them. His materials, (hand-made paper, paint, ink, photographs, and shellac just to name a few), add to the chiaroscuro that rewards close inspection.

Opening and Artist Reception 5-8pm
Drawing on the Past is the annual David Schwindt show at Framing Concepts Gallery. The landscape in New Mexico and the West looks much the same as it did 100 years ago, even 200 years ago, except along the areas of urban development. The artist tends to look for places, even in the urban landscape, with open areas that suggest a nature untouched by the hand of man. The paintings in this show represent places that Schwindt has painted in the past, places that he revisits whenever the opportunity arises; places that make him feel grounded and connected to Earth.
