Culture Shock

"Top Fuel of the 4 Directions" by Harlan Emil Gruber is hanging at the Donkey Gallery.

Art 'Round Every Corner—It's an especially groovy weekend for new exhibits here in Albuquerque. First off, over at Sol Arts (712 Central SE), there'll be a special comics extravaganza on Saturday, Dec. 3, to benefit Sweet Seven Thousands Baaad Assss Comics, a collective of Northern New Mexico writers and artists all of whom are interested in promoting the medium of comics. The event runs from noon to 6 p.m. For a mere $5, you'll get a full afternoon of entertainment including everything from music, poetry, film, video and caricatures to haircuts by the Blue Monkey School of Cosmetology. (I'm not sure what that's about.) For details, call 244-0049.

Over at the Donkey Gallery (1415 Fourth Street SW), there'll be a reception on Friday, Dec. 2, from 6 to 9 p.m. for the second installment of Comin' Down the Mountain, an exhibit focusing on artists from north of Santa Fe, in this case Sydney Cooper, Harlan Emil Gruber and Debbie Long. The gallery's operators say, "The show tries to find the ties between Taos' present and its visionary modernist and hippie pasts." As always, the reception will feature live music and scrumptious grub. The show runs through Jan. 29. For more information, call 242-7504 or go to

That same evening you can wing over to 516 Art Space (516 Central SW) where 10 UNM fine art students have organized a photography exhibit called Friend/Stranger/Self. A reception with refreshments will occur Friday, Dec. 2, from 6 to 9 p.m. The show only runs through Dec. 5, so don't dilly-dally.

Finally, Exhibit 51 (5100 Juan Tabo NE) is hosting its first annual holiday small format invitational, where you'll find lots of nifty itty-bitty art in a wide range of media. This show opens Saturday, Dec. 3, with a reception from 1 to 5 p.m. Runs through Jan. 4. 275-1551.
