Culture Shock

Everyone's favorite environmental anarchist, Edward Abbey, the late wilderness protector and author of the cult classic enviro-novel The Monkey Wrench Gang, gets his own personal tribute at the Kimo Theatre this Saturday, Sept. 25, at 7 p.m. Some of Abbey's closest friends—including Jack Loeffler, Katie Lee, Dave Foreman and Bart Koehler—will celebrate the memory of their old buddy with a bunch of Abbey anecdotes, readings, songs and short films. The event is being presented as part of the 2004 New Mexico Wilderness Conference. $15. For details, call 843-8696 or log on to www.nmwild.org.

Author Interview

Hot as Hell

An interview with Ross Gelbspan, author of Boiling Point: How Politicians, Big Oil and Coal, Journalists, and Activists Have Fueled the Climate Crisis—and What We Can Do to Avert Disaster

Forget the candy-colored terror alerts. Forget the queasy economy, the ghastly mess in Iraq and Bush's endless fear mongering. On a global scale, they're just distractions from the really scary problem: global climate change.

Go, Johnny, Go

Go! Downtown Arts Festival 2004

The Downtown contemporary arts scene recently experienced a series of painful body blows. The Walls Gallery, a refurbished storefront space specializing in site-specific installations, announced it would be closing. Then Jon McConville, the brain behind the successful Fort Studios and one of the driving forces behind Downtown revitalization efforts, had to leave town unexpectedly to be with his family in Idaho. (Thankfully, it looks like Fort Studios will continue under the leadership of McConville's former assistant, Josh Franco. It'll now be called the Downtown Contemporary Art Center.) And, of course, Magnífico recently had to give up its beautiful exhibit space at 516 Central SW due to troubled finances.

Art Magnified

In the American Grain

Georgia O'Keeffe Museum

Duncan Phillips first came into contact with the circle of artists surrounding Alfred Stieglitz in 1926. Over the years, Phillips gradually acquired work by Stieglitz, John Marin, Marsden Hartley, Arthur Dove and Georgia O'Keeffe, amassing one of the finest collections of American modernists in existence. A traveling exhibit highlighting this collection opens this weekend at the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum in Santa Fe, running through Jan. 2. Made up of 40 carefully chosen pieces of art, In the American Grain is a major exhibit that deserves a wide audience. (505) 946-1000.

Art Magnified

Stacy Hawkinson

Downtown Contemporary Art Center

It's hard to keep a good man down. Or for that matter a good woman. Or for that matter a good nonprofit art space. The name Fort 105 Studios may be a thing of the past, but the exhibit and studio space is still alive and well under the new leadership of director Joshua Franco. Now called the Downtown Contemporary Art Center (105 Fourth Street SW), the space will unveil its new self with a solo show of paintings by Stacy Hawkinson, opening this Friday with a reception from 5 to 9 p.m. I'm told the paintings will be discounted to benefit Hawkinson's son's musical education. The show runs through Nov. 1. 242-1983.
