This Independence Day weekend, fireworks won't just be exploding way up high in the sky. Inside Mariposa Gallery there'll be a firework show of a very different kind. Three New Mexican women artists will be setting off some artistic explosions of their own. Valerie Cordaro offers up some colorful paintings, drawings and pastels. Toby Bransky will display some embroidered and stitched necklaces. And Marcia Newren presents some creations in fused, slumped glass. Stop by everyone's favorite folk art gallery this Saturday, July 5, from 5 to 8 p.m. for the reception. Summer Fireworks runs through July 31. 268-6828.
