Tonight at the Boro Gallery: Operation Art Box

Last year’s Operation Art Box yielded an impressive clutch of artistic additions to Albuquerque’s otherwise drab dirtscape. This year, under the watchful guidance of Alibi’s circulation guru Geoffrey Plant, we’ve done it again! Witness the unveiling of this year’s Art Boxes tonight at the Boro Gallery, featuring both the boxes and additional art from this years Art Box champions: Kris Trujillo, Joseph Paul Baca, Danny Skinz, Sharon Vargas, Mark Magallon-Leonard, Ben Adams, Paul Higdon, Jonathon Sanchez, Ashley Plumley, Ana Jiron, and Off Center Arts.

The Operation Art Box Party begins at 5:00 in the Boro Gallery, 317 Gold SW (the Northeast corner of Gold and 4th.)

Danny Skinz work in progress

Operation Art Box update

2012 Art Boxer and internationally renowned muralist Danny Skinz actually disassembled his Weekly Alibi newspaper box and bolted three sides of it to a wall, creating ready made detail panels that will also stand alone as one piece -if he ever gets the box back together.

Seriously though, look for Danny's piece as well as eleven other brilliantly modified Alibi boxes at Boro Gallery next month, where there will also be a month long group show (opening Friday September 7th) featuring non-circulation themed work by 2012 Art Boxers.

Culture Shock

Another Earth

At first glance, painter Melissa Morgan's Enter Anthropocene embraces an ethereal, flower-childlike bond between humans and nature. But that's where Cassidy Watt—owner of Metallo Gallery (2863 Hwy. 14, Madrid)—says Morgan shows her sleight of hand for subtle metaphor. "There is a celebration in the paintings because they're very beautiful and pretty," says Watt, "but I think there's also a warning there."

Ink City

The walls ooze with sex, bleeding hearts, birds of prey, snakes and skulls. This is the patchwork visual assemblage—comprised of more than 150 pieces by 20-plus artists—that's transformed Downtown's Boro Gallery into a mind-bending hall of tattoo culture.

Cycle-themed show opens this afternoon at Boro

Last time the Alibi caught up with Jake Foreman, he was leading a group of teens on a 200-mile bike trek along the Trail of the Ancients [News, “Where the Rubber Meets the Road,” Aug. 11-17]. He had just created Cycles of Life, a program that helps Native youth gain an appreciation for their bodies, environment and heritage.

He’s been meeting weekly with students from the Native American Community Academy ever since, and has curated an art show, Cycles, opening tonight at Boro Gallery (317 Gold SW) from 4 to 8 p.m. Read more about this exhibit and another Foreman is involved in in this week’s Culture Shock.

Gallery Review

Borosilicate

A gallery dedicated to super-cooled molten sand in all its glory

Troy Lowe and Brian Burge were tired of head shops. For years, the two glassblowers made pipes because they were more marketable than pendants and marbles and the odd art piece. But the primary venues for selling their work were stores that specialized in drug paraphernalia, and it didn’t feel like a good fit. “We didn’t like being in there,” says Lowe. “It was kind of seedy.”
