Ainadamar at the Santa Fe Opera

Art Magnified

Ralph Greene

MoRo Gallery

Ralph Greene began his art career in New York and has spent the last 15 years making art in New Mexico. He is a longtime professor of art at TVI and a proficient navigator of the academic and commercial art worlds. His work straddles the line between figurative and abstract, relying heavily on the human form. On Friday, July 1, at 6 p.m., he'll give a demonstration and talk at the MoRo Gallery (806 Mountain NW) entitled “My Life in Art.” For more information, call 242-6272 or go to www.moroart.com.

Book Review

How Offensive!

The R. Crumb Handbook

Our culture is filled to capacity with oversensitive people who get outraged over every trivial infraction imaginable. Someone with too much time on his or her hands always seems to be getting frothed up over one ridiculous nonissue or another. If there isn't a big blow-up because the corner store doesn't stock the latest chipotle-flavored Doritos, there's some mass protest being organized because manholes are insulting to women, yellow cabs are offensive to Asians or the Pillsbury Dough Boy is a cruel affront to pasty, overweight, melanin-deprived white boys.
