A new show at 516 ARTS in Albuquerque features diverse visual art media that explores the idea of surfaces through painting, sculpture, photography, electronic media and performance art. Some surfaces tantalize, some fortify and some allow us just a peek inside. Megan Kamerick talks with curator Lea Anderson and artists Jennifer Cawley, Jessica Kennedy and Alex Kraft.
