1 Come to dinner.

Santa Fe’s Form & Concept gallery opens its newest exhibition, A Feast to Remember, with an artist reception Friday from 5 to 7 p.m. The installation piece by Santa Fe artist Jenny Day features a banquet table overrun with fanciful mixed-media animal creations, such as turtles and polar bears, that invite us to consider our place in the climate crisis and its impact on Earth’s creatures.

Spencer Linford, Form & Concept communications director, likens the immersive artwork to Judy Chicago’s The Dinner Party and the California Bay Art’s Funk Movement. “With colorful critters climbing chandeliers and Pop Art polar bears storming a hot-pink dining table, one can’t help but consider how fragile humankind’s highly constructed domestic sphere is,” he says.

The exhibition, which also includes prints by artists such as Louise Nevelson and Nusra Qureshi, is on view through April 26.
