  • Where People Aren’t

    A new installation by artist Nicola López, Haunted, opened  at the Albuquerque Museum, sort of. The large-scale exhibit of collaged, printed and hand-drawn elements that fills the main wall in the entryway to the museum ironically examines the Southwestern landscape haunted by the inescapable presence of humans. On display until at least May 2021, Haunted will hopefully greet visitors soon and assuredly will have a virtual component available on the museum’s website in the coming weeks. (Clarke Condé)

  • Hanging in There

    Cartoonist Jim Davis said, “Way down deep, we’re all motivated by the same urges. Cats have the courage to live by them.” That from the creator of the most iconic of office breakroom posters is a fitting entry point into the new exhibit Cat Tales opening this week and running through Aug. 27 at the Placitas Community Library. It’s hard to say what role libraries will play in the future, but the Placitas library is indeed hanging on with this multimedia exhibit of local artists’ depiction of cats that is offered both in person and online. Library hours are subject to change so it is best to check the library website before you go at You can also see the entire exhibit anytime online at (Clarke Condé)

  • Mixtures of Pictures

    Collage is an artistic medium that is well suited to respond quickly to current events by repurposing found materials, changing the narrative to fit the one the artist is trying to express. On Saturday, Aug. 22 from 6pm to 8pm, 516 Arts will host a virtual reception for Radical Reimaginings, a new international exhibit of contemporary collage works curated by 516 Arts in collaboration with Kolaj Magazine which features New Mexican artists reflecting our current conditions. Artists will discuss their work at this free, online event open to all. For more information and tickets, see (Clarke Condé)
