New Year, New Art

Jump, dive, leap into your 2008 New Year's resolution to listen more attentively to the creative muse chiming in the back of your head. With the New Year come new gallery shows, new theater company seasons and opportunities for new artists to come out of hiding ... like these:

For visual artists, Art Gallery 66 in Bernalillo is seeking entries for its second annual Mi Corazon exhibit and silent auction to benefit a charity organization.

The finished hearts are auctioned off and one-third of the proceeds will go to charity. Call 867-8666 or visit for more info.

For performance artists, Mother Road (the newest professional theater company in town) is holding cattle call auditions for various roles in their 2008 season. If you’re interested, have one monologue no longer than two minutes, one a cappella song and a résumé with a headshot ready to go by Jan. 5. Auditions will be held Jan. 5 and 6 with callbacks on Jan. 12. You must set up an appointment, so give Vic Browder a call at 480-9627. Also, the Adobe Theater is hosting auditions to fill six male and six female roles in Harvey, to be performed in late March and early April. Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script on Saturday, Jan. 5, at 1 p.m. and Sunday, Jan. 6, at 6:30 p.m. For more info, call Ken Bennington at 463-5273.
