  • Radiant Reveries Revealed

    It’s the kind of life many who fall in love with New Mexico dream of, Joan Fenicle’s life is. The Placitas photographer and painter has spent the past 40 years wandering the quiet places—back roads, forest meadows, whispering canyons—in search of inspiration. When she finds it, be it a scrap of light on bent blade of grass, or the cold mercury motion in a cloud, Fenicle’s imagination twists and sculpts, imbues with magic, and a new, trippy-cool thing is born. Sometimes, that thing seems to have been culled from the land of fable and fairy, archetype and mystery, as is the case with her newest exhibit, Lost in a Dream: Fantasy and Abstracted Images, featuring delightfully surreal images, at Wild Hearts Gallery. The show is currently running now through Sunday, Jan. 27. The gallery is open Tuesday to Friday from 11am to 5pm and Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 3pm. This free show is for all ages.

  • Bring It On, Cheer It Up

    For the next two weekends, Musical Theatre Southwest presents performances of the musical, Bring It On, a fun and moving underdog story set in the highly competitive world of high school cheerleading. While the cliched sexist cultural reflex might be to scoff at cheerleading, the sport is actually the most dangerous of all high school sports in terms of injuries suffered. Many cheerleaders are dedicated, ambitious athletes, and this musical, with music and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda (of Hamilton fame) and Pulitzer-winning composer Tom Kitt (Next to Normal and American Idiot), based loosely on the film of the same name, shows us the gritty reality of cheering, with respect and fun. Curtains go up Jan. 11, 12 and 18 at 7:30pm; Jan 13 and 19 at 3pm and close for the last time Jan. 20 with a showing at 4pm. Tickets are $15 for students, $18 for general admission, $25 for VIP.
