Through Nov. 23, enjoy ”The Cycles of the Fig Tree” by Carlos Cázares at St. Matthew’s Cathedral Arts center, in the Justus Sundermann Gallery, at 5100 Ross. Cázares, a Mexican visual artist specializing in the disciplines of painting, sculpture and graphics, seeks to expose his heart to the light of the Creator, and constantly seeks a way to impress the life of God on his canvases. Through his experimentation with pigments and mineral deposits, he has found that materials such as gold and silver offer a beautiful refraction of light that enriches his work. His abstract works reflect an appreciation of ancient techniques applied in a contemporary setting. Go to cathedralartsdallas.org or call 214.887.6552 to schedule a free visit.
