Culture Shock

This month, Albuquerque's gallery tour, Artscrawl, stretches its paint-stained tentacles across the entire city for a gigantic city-wide art event encompassing 28 galleries located in almost every neighborhood in the city. The event will also feature an Art Benefit Raffle in support of the organizers. Raffled items will include original art work as well as various classes and certificates. Tickets can be purchased at any participating gallery for $2, or $10 for a book of six.

Performance Review

Original Sin

All My Sons at the Vortex Theatre

In 1944, Joe Keller and Steve Deever owned a factory that manufactured parts for military airplanes. One day, Steve discovered that some cylinders they were making had cracks in them, so he called Joe at home to ask him what to do. Joe, who claimed to have the flu, told him to weld over the cracks and ship out the cylinders, saying he'd take responsibility for the flawed parts. As a result, a few weeks later several planes crashed on the same day resulting in the deaths of 21 men.

Art Magnified

Jungle Fever

Mariposa Gallery

The Mariposa Gallery has been a staple of Albuquerque's arts scene for three decades. In other words, when the Mariposa opened shop, I was still grooving to Captain Kangaroo. In celebration of this distinguished longevity, the gallery will present its 30th annual invitational theme show. This year the show is titled Jungle Fever and will feature sweaty tropical work by Amanda Tinsley, Drew Coduti, Margi Weir, Kevin Burgess, Lee McCormick and Hilarey Walker. The show opens with a reception this Friday, Jan. 16, from 5 to 9 p.m. It runs through Feb. 22. 268-6828.

Book Review

Red Visions

God is Red: A Native View of Religion (30th Anniversary Edition)

Last year a friend of mine recommended a new book by Vine Deloria Jr. called Evolution, Creationism and Other Modern Myths: A Critical Inquiry. The book presented Deloria's attempt to argue that the scientific theory of evolution is as intellectually flawed as creationism, the Christian fundamentalist argument that the Book of Genesis in the Old Testament is literally true right down to the forbidden fruit and the serpent in the tree. Given that Deloria is considered one of the greatest religious thinkers in the nation, you'd think Evolution, Creationism and Other Modern Myths would be insightful and thought-provoking.

Baiev once conducted 67 amputations in 48 hours. This memoir from a doctor who worked on the front lines of the bloodbath in Chechnya will be an eye-opener for Americans unfamiliar with the crisis. In The Oath, he provides a horrifying glimpse at the destructions of war.
