Outsider Angst

The STRANGERS Run Riot in Santa Fe

Who better to challenge the paint-by-number status quo of the art scene here than a vanguard of budding artists, silenced up until now by a lack of representation?

Culture Shock

Haiku in a paper sash

Gallery Review

Creatures Featured

The new show’s acrylic-on-resin sculptures tell the story of an ominous factory in a world short on resources and long on corporate greed and toxic waste.

Webgame Wednesday: Art Game

Is Art Game a game, a joke, an experience, a comment on the modern art scene, all of the above? Yes. You start by choosing your artist, a male or a female, and then leaping head-first into the cutthroat world of modern art. First, you must create your minimalist masterpieces. This is accomplished though a mini-game whose mechanics should be familiar to longtime gamers. Next, you've got to choose the paintings for your exhibit. Will it be a success or a failure? Oh, fickle muse!

“The Overgrowth” by Bruce Lowney

Gallery Review

Quest for the Sublime

Forty years of Bruce Lowney

A four-decade retrospective on display at Exhibit/208 shows Bruce Lowney’s range as a master of the tri-tone lithograph. Collected Works charts his evolution as a printer and visual poet, while making space for his equally impressive large-scale oil works.

The Talking Fountain Still Flows

Gallery remains active despite Lead/Coal scramble

Walking up post-apocalyptic Lead Avenue to the Talking Fountain gallery, I wondered for a split second if it was worth it. The landscape was bleak. Like many businesses along the Lead and Coal corridor, the gallery has seen a decline in visitors, as it’s buried somewhere behind the pile of street-construction rubble. Despite the renovation inconveniences, the gallery and its local supporters are determined to put a positive spin on it.

Through the Wolf’s Eyes

Extensive archive illuminates vision of hunter-turned-conservationist

Ernest Thompson Seton spent his life making people aware of their impact on nature and introducing youth to the outdoors. He was an artist, woodsman and mentor who wrote more than 50 books. He confounded the worldwide Boy Scouts movement. And he was once an avid hunter who was changed into a conservationist by a spiritual experience he had in New Mexico. The Academy for the Love of Learning, based outside Santa Fe, is about to open its permanent Seton Gallery.

Taco and a Haircut, Two Bits

Fades are out, Rough Edges are in

This month's tasty (and tasteful) exhibition at Ace Barbershop, Rough Edges, features the beefy, cheesy works of Gabriel Luis Perez. The taco and cheeseburger art—or more precisely, painted collages of beef, lettuce and tortilla colors—has inspired fresh gab topics in the tiny Downtown shop.

Cross the Divide

516 Arts (516 Central SW) will present a free panel discussion, The Construction of the Counterculture: The Role of Women & the Place of Architecture, as well as two new exhibitions—Across the Great Divide, photography by Roberta Price, and Worlds Outside This One, works by multiple international artists—all on Saturday. Panelists include Price and artist Linda Fleming, both early residents of the Libre commune, and the architect Arnold Valdez. The panel is at 2 p.m., followed by a reception for the art opening at 6 p.m. This triad is the first event of a summer-long collaboration between 516 and Alvarado Urban Farm, unCommon Ground, a series of exhibits and programming about self-sufficiency, community and visions of utopia.

Throw that pot!

Alibi Picks

Tomé Mud Play

Get your hands dirty during a day of clay at the Tomé Art Gallery. Then be blindfolded and throw a pot. (On a wheel, of course. Kinda like in Ghost.) The blindfolded-pot-throwing contest is just one of the cool things happening. Gallery potters will lead visitors through multiple experiences, such as constructing clay animals. Learn how to make an olla! Don't know what that is? Find out! Experts in specific kinds of clay firing—especially raku and horsehair—will explain what those are, and visitors can glaze and fire some premade vessels. The demo day ushers in the gallery's annual show, which runs May 20 through 29, and features work from more than 10 professionals, as well as students from ongoing pottery classes. Works ranging from functional stoneware to sculpture will be on display.
