If you've been to the bosque lately you know that they've returned. The lanky figures of the Sandhill Crane soar overhead or stand knobby-knee-deep in shallow river water. Their ancient calls are the soundtrack to fall in New Mexico. Artist Caryl McHarney celebrates these singular creatures in her art, an exhibition for which is running until Dec. 31 at the gallery inside the Open Space Visitors Center (6500 Coors NW). An opening reception is happening on Saturday, Oct. 28, between 2 and 4pm, and viewing these watercolors, etchings and serigraphs is free Tuesday through Sunday between 9am and 5pm for the duration of the show.
