“This thing could fail, and it could be a nightmare,” says Debra Baxter. “But who cares?” The Santa Fe sculptor makes artworks that combine divergent materials—metal, glass and stone, for example—so there’s always a risk that they’ll split apart during the creative process.

This spirit of fearless experimentation is reflected in his dazzlingly innovative,…

Out of that silence comes a rare kind of music-making. 50% of tickets for students and teachers - phone only (505-984-8759).
