Have you ever descended into the bowels of the First Plaza Galeria, that underground mall at the corner of Second and Tijeras? It's a whole other world down there. Quite a nice place, actually. There's been a couple fine art galleries down there for many years, and recently the Galeria has been blessed with a new one.
Peggy Neuman, a recent transplant from Durango, has just opened Peggy Neuman Fine Arts. Incorporating watercolor and acrylic, mixed-media and collage, much of Neuman's work focuses on the spiritual resonance of Southwestern landscapes. A grand opening reception will be held this Friday, Nov. 7, from 3 to 8 p.m. with plenty of great food and drink, and live music starting at 6 p.m. For details, call 242-3855.
