Artist Raúl de Nieves blends mystical symbols and Mexican craft in the Henry Art Gallery’s largest exhibition room for “A window to the see, A spirit star chiming in the wind of wonder … ” Acetate-and-tape “stained glass” windows cover the massive skylights and fill the room with provocative content and vivid color. It’s a welcome break from the sometimes gray Seattle spring. The title of the show comes from a poem composed by de Nieves while he was making the windows. The exhibit runs through Aug. 25.
