The Jonathan Abrams MD Art Gallery at the University of New Mexico Hospital has been exhibiting fine art since it was founded in 1991. Its current offering is the 20-artist “Exchange: Between You and Me” a high-quality exhibition that is teeming with renowned local artists.
The images range from abstractions to landscapes, still life and figurative subjects, with an overall attention to painstaking execution. Because of the number of artists, this review will only touch on several highlights.
Because of her luscious sense of color and elegant execution, Sally Condon is one of my perennial favorite painters. Condon offers “Say What,” an oil, wax and collage on panel that sings itself to sleep at night. For me, it reads like a lullaby with soft transitions between forms and pastel tones.
