Driving up to Santa Fe may be in the cards to catch the opening of Readings at Keep Contemporary (142 Lincoln Ave., Santa Fe) on Friday, Oct. 11 from 5pm to 8pm. Billed as “A celebration of speculative fiction as seen through the lens of Tarot Art,” Readings is an exhibit of work by Elizabeth Leggett, Sienna Luna, Lee Moyer and Reiko Murakami Rice that is “inspired by the guiding wisdom, karmic narrative and spiritual symbolism of Tarot cards.” Perhaps using their own blending of interpretation and divination, Keep Contemporary continues to expand the narrative dimensions of contemporary painting with this exhibit guest-curated by Elizabeth Leggett.

Here We Go Again
The songs of palindrome-lovers’ favorite band, ABBA, are wrangled into the musical Mamma Mia! which opens this Friday, Oct. 11 at Albuquerque Little Theater (224 San Pasquale Ave. SW). From the moment the curtain goes up at 7:30pm, the stage is filled with the sweet songs of the Swedish ‘70s, deployed to tell the story of a bride-to-be’s plot to discover her birth father as it unfolds on a Greek island in hilarious form. Tickets for this opening night performance are $25, with discounts for seniors and students. For more information on this PG-13 event, see albuquerquelittlethe
Identify, Clarify and Classify
Settling out Saturday, Oct. 12 from 6pm to 9pm is the opening of Confusionite Sediment at AC2 Gallery (301 Mountain Rd. NE). Artists David D'Agostino and M. Certo bring two separate perspectives on abstraction to a similar point in time and space for this look into the exploration of attraction and repulsion.
