516 Central SW
By Katy June-Friesen
A small group of art supporters in Albuquerque weren't about to let the 15-year tradition of showcasing Albuquerque's contemporary art die. Instead, they're carrying on with the 16th annual juried exhibition that was once hosted by the now defunct Magnífico. Aptly retitled Transitions and presented by the Harwood Art Center, this year's exhibit will be housed at 516 Central SW, the old Magnífico art space. It features 38 pieces by 27 local artists selected from more than 240 entries. Laura Steward Heon, incoming executive director of SITE Santa Fe, juried the show. She says the exhibit, which includes many surreal images, could be called Desert Dada. Come get your Dada on at the Saturday night opening featuring live gypsy jazz music from the Duke City Hot Club from 7 to 9 p.m. Transitions runs through September 17.
