Exhibition of “Bunnies and Chicks” opens at Chimayo

“Rabbit II” is by Eric Fausnacht.

Chimayo Gallery presents a show featuring the work of Eric Fausnacht.

“Bunnies & Chicks” will run from March 9, to April 30, with an opening reception from 5:30 to 8 p.m. March 9. The exhibit will focus attention on paintings and soft statues by Fausnacht, who will be present at the opening reception.

The works are animal-inspired pieces that examine his unusual approach, a photo realistic technique in conjunction with elaborate baroque backdrops that illuminate the regal portraiture of the subject matter.

Texture, color and power in studies of domestic fowl are his motivating forces. Fausnacht’s portrays his subjects in whirls and twirls of “spirited” color.

Gallery hours are noon to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, at 21 N. 7th St., Perkasie. For details, contact the gallery at 267-733-5012.
