Art Magnified

Between Places

University Hospital Art Gallery

Norman Akers, a professor of art at the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe, delves deep into Native American mythology and culture in creating his stunning paintings and prints. An exhibit of his work is currently on display at the University Hospital Art Gallery. Sure, it's kind of a weird venue, but sick people need love too. Stop by sometime between now and April 30. Aker's work is definitely worth a look. Call 272-9700 or 272-6326 for more information.

Gallery Review

God's Eye View

Capture the Moment at the Albuquerque Museum

If you really wanted to make sense of the last 60 years in the history of the world, you would face a nearly impossible task. Read 100 books on the Vietnam War alone, and you will encounter 100 more or less contradictory interpretations. History never truly reveals itself, because we never have complete, unbiased access to the past. Capturing history, it seems to me, is like wrestling with a greased pig. You do your best even if you know you will never get a really good grip on the truth.

Author Interview

Nasty Little Buggers

An Interview with Matt Rix, author of Beating the Bark Beetles: Defending Your Valuable Trees Against Bark Beetles and Other Destructive Pests

I've got a big, ugly, dead pine tree in my front yard. One week it looked quite healthy. The next week it looked quite dead. It's kind of heart-breaking. I really liked that tree. Now, as soon as it gets a little warmer, I'm going to have to rip the thing out by the roots, cut it into chunks, and give it to my friend for firewood.
