Marcia Rackstraw: Patterns Wild
June 13, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Wild Hearts Gallery invites the public to attend the opening reception for artist Marce Rackstraw on Saturday, June 13, from 4 to 7 pm. Her painting exhibition, Patterns Wild is on display from April 28 through May 24.
A trip to Africa changed how Marcia Rackstraw sees the animals she has depicted in oil, charcoal, and print for the past five years. Experiencing wild animals in their environment, looking into their eyes as you become the observed, had the sense of a mystery to be solved, a challenge to know what is being shared. In the new work, the realistic becomes fanciful, at once depicting the animal and then slipping into an abstraction of colors and shapes.
Light refreshments will be served at the reception. Wild Hearts Gallery is located in Placitas, at the Homestead Village, 221-B State Highway 165, 2 ½ miles from I-25.
Wild Hearts Gallery is an artists’ collective, supported by 15 longtime local artists. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Friday from 11 am to 5 pm and Saturday and Sunday from 10 am to 3 pm.
