Beauty in Bronze and The Renaissance Collection: Michael Parkes The Longworth Gallery, 530 & 532 Canyon, Opening reception October 9, 5–8 pm

Often called the world’s leading magical realist, Michael Parkes creates stone lithographs and fine art reproductions on canvas, paper, and vellum. A group of lost wax bronze sculptures, cast by the renowned Berkeley, California, foundry Artworks, brings two-dimensional angels from his lithographs and paintings into the third dimension. Parkes says his imagery is drawn from a range of wisdoms including the cabalistic and the tantric, but is embodied in forms that are immediately accessible from his own imagination. The Longworth Gallery is the only gallery in Santa Fe to exclusively represent artists who pair the mystical and metaphorical with the elements of reality. —Carolyn Patten
