See Everything in Black and White

Create an artwork, in any medium, but it must have only two colors. Even grays are off-limits. Oh, and you have a deadline. This was the challenge taken on by more than 10 artists for Black and White, the upcoming show at the 5G Gallery. David Cudney, who runs the gallery, says the parameters were to make sure that all the work created for the show was brand-new. Having an assignment can also inspire an artist to work more fervently. The opening reception is Friday, at 6 p.m., when you can see the two-tone fruits of their labors. There will be hors d’oeuvres and music, along with “some kind of black and white water feature.” The 5G Gallery is inside the main building of the Factory on 5th (1715 Fifth Street NW).

You’ll actually want to go to the hospital. Really.
By Samara Alpern
“My children.” That’s what Dr. Jonathan Abrams calls the the gangster crouching in a silver gelatin print, the frail lilacs rendered with watercolor, the photo of a caped gray dog emerging from the water. Abrams is an art collector and emeritus professor of medicine at UNM Hospital, and he thinks of the all the artworks he has acquired over the years as his babies.
