Aron Wiesenfeld at Evoke Contemporary

Aron Wiesenfeld, The Last Night at the Fair (2020), gouache on paper

Evoke Contemporary, 550 S. Guadalupe St., 505-995-9902,

Aron Wiesenfeld’s narrative paintings and charcoal drawings capture an enigmatic, dreamlike world of solitary figures and feelings of alienation and intimacy. Without making explicit references to literary traditions, his compositions evoke fairy tales, folklore, and myths translated into a modern idiom. A two-person show of new works by Wiesenfeld and first-time gallery exhibitor Gugger Petter opens with a 5 p.m. reception on Friday, Oct. 30, and runs through Nov. 21. Petter constructs her compositions from newsprint, which she weaves on a traditional loom, crafting autobiographical scenes of day-to-day life. Work in the exhibition can also be seen on the gallery’s website.
