'Virtual Reality' Exhibit Ongoing at Wild Hearts


Through May 28, Wild Hearts Gallery in Placitas offers "Virtual Reality,"an exhibition of paintings and the mixed-media sculpture Roger Evans is known for, combining his knowledge of building materials, engineering and illustration with humor and social commentary.

Evans’s version of reality is a play on the idioms of art in contemporary society – where real, imagined and simulated worlds collide. As the art world indulges in 3D virtual worlds that connect users to digital experiences, he uses his imagination to combine what is a part of the real or physical world and one that exists only in the imagination

“My sculptures are playful, but they’re mostly idea-based, not casual or frivolous. There’s a whole lot under there. A lot of ways to look at them,” he said.

The gallery continues to follow all COVID-19 safety recommendations in place at the time of the exhibit.

Wild Hearts Gallery is an artists’ collective supported by 16 local artists. Located at 221-B State Highway 165, the gallery is open Tuesday through Friday from 10am to 4pm, Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 2pm. You can also take a visual tour of the gallery by visiting
