Culture Shock

Q-Staff Workshop—The talented weirdoes of the Q-staff Company will begin hosting performance training workshops on the third Sunday of every month. The first is on Sunday, Jan. 15, from 4 to 7 p.m. Q-staff member Sandy Timmerman says that their "method is so different from the usual American acting method where actors walk in, they are handed a script and told where to stand ... it's hard to explain and much easier to understand by experiencing it." With that in mind, if you fork out $35, you can gain access to a presentation on the company's innovative performance philosophy to be followed by a 90-minute training session. Afterward, a light meal will be provided at Winning Coffee House. For details, call 255-2182.

La Plante—Founded in Old Town in 1962, the La Plante Gallery claims to be the oldest gallery in Albuquerque still operated under the same management. It moved to the Heights in 1965, only to be burned to the ground the following May. It operated in Nob Hill in a slot right beside the Lobo Theatre for 25 years. Owner Robert la Plante recently moved his digs to 4609 Lomas NE.

La Plante will unveil the new space with a show that features his own photographs of natural scenes from the Mexican state of Chihuahua. Also on display will be work by Arturo Chavez, Damien Gonzales, Steve Hanks, Frank McCulloch, Barney McCulloch, Roembke (Roz Hurley) and Oui Mie Shu. The show opens Saturday, Jan. 14, with a reception from 3 to 5 p.m. It runs throughout February. For details, call 232-2806.

O'Keeffe—Just when you thought you already knew everything you'd ever want to know about Georgia O'Keeffe, something like this comes along. A new exhibit at the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum in Santa Fe presents photographs by the artist's friend Maria Chabot, who managed the rebuilding of O'Keeffe's home in Abiquiu during the late '40s. The two ladies had an intimate relationship, and Chabot's photos capture the artist at her most relaxed and spontaneous.

The exhibit also features Chabot's photos of some of the landscape configurations that serve as the subject of O'Keeffe's New Mexico landscape paintings. Chabot's images also capture some of the camping/painting trips the pair took together. Admission to the exhibit is $5. For details, call (505) 946-1000 or go to www.okeeffemuseum.org.
