As NASA explains it, sunlight — comprised of every color of the rainbow — scatters as it enters Earth’s atmosphere; since blue light travels in the shortest, choppiest waves, the sky often appears blue. But as an exhibition title, “Why Is the Sky Blue?” hints at something unanswerable. Curated by Octavio Avendaño Trujillo, the group show explores a “shift within the modern tradition of abstraction” as seen by a dozen artists from across the U.S., Mexico and Argentina. New Jersey transplant Nate Cassie, local fixture Jesse Amado and the late great Chuck Ramirez jump out among the recognizable names. Free, 6-8pm Thu, Ruiz-Healy Art, 201 E. Olmos Drive, (210) 804-2219, ruizhealyart.com. — BR
