Ben Jackel at Gerald Peters Contemporary

Ben Jackel, Bat (2017), mahogany and graphite

Gerald Peters Contemporary, 1011 Paseo de Peralta, 505-954-5800, petersprojects.com

The gallery explores monochromatic sculptural works in the exhibition Shadow (through March 20). The show features works by five artists, including Cary Esser, who uses ceramics to reinterpret the traditional parfleche (dried animal hide) used by Native Americans; Mathew McConnell, whose earthenware tablets combine charcoal and graphite; and Jami Porter Lara, who works with a ceramic technique indigenous to the people of the Chihuahuan desert, crafting sculptures that reference the traditional vessel form but are based on the forms of plastic bottles. Works in black or absent of color define the exhibition.
