  • Dance Arts Los Alamos is celebrating 20 years of bringing professional dance training and performances to the community. This weekend, three programs will highlight the accomplishments of dancers ages three through adult, as well as the DALA faculty. All performances will be at the Duane Smith Auditorium. Admission is free.

  • Sometimes we try really hard to like things and no matter how hard we try, it just doesn’t work.
    Let’s just preface by saying that sometimes if you have to try to like something, then something must be wrong.
    Such was the case with the musical “Cowboy Poet.”
    It would be easy enough to blame the nasty weather outside or maybe it was the length of the show (two-and-a-half hours). Whatever the reason, it seemed as though many in the audience couldn’t help but wonder when the Los Alamos Little Theatre production would end.

  • Abandon everything that comes to mind when the word “naked” is spoken and try to see things in a different light without blushing or giggling like a teenager.
    The staff at the Fuller Lodge Art Center is hoping that patrons will do just that, as it presents its newest exhibit, “Naked,” opening with a reception from 5-7 p.m. Friday. More than 50 artists will share their interpretations of what it means to be naked.
    The range of work on display is as varied as the artists. From sketches and photographs of nudes, to ceramic and bronze interpretations of the female body, to photographs of stingrays and trees, each individual shares their vision.

  • On behalf of the New Mexico Dressage Association and the Los Alamos Pony Club, we would like to say thanks to all who helped make our recent Dressage Show and Pony Club Rally so successful.
    NMDA members and LAPC families supported the show by helping set up and prepare the arena, acting as arena stewards, rally judges, assisting with judge hospitality and programs, and all the other tasks required for a horse show.  

  • Today
    The Juvenile Justice Advisory Board will attend the Capital Projects Special Council Meeting in Council Chambers at 6 p.m. in place of the regularly scheduled board meeting. For more information, call 661-4097.

    The Los Alamos High School dance classes invite the community to the Spring Dance Show at 7 p.m. in the Duane Smith Auditorium. High school students and guest performers will present acts in a variety of dance styles. The event is free to the public.

  • Sculptor Destiny Allison will talk about her work and the sources of art in everyone during a talk at 6 p.m. Thursday at Fuller Lodge. She will also sign her book, “Shaping Destiny,” after the talk. The Fuller Lodge Art Center and Otowi Station Bookstore are sponsoring the event.
    Working in bronze, stone and steel for the past 15 years, Allison first fell in love with sculpting while playing with her son’s modeling clay during a moment of writer’s block and domestic frustration. Since then, Allison has focused solely on the art of sculpture. Dedication, tenacity and what she calls “downright stubbornness” have yielded her current success.
