  • Presenter Kristi Beguin has designed a class for pregnant women, women who are considering pregnancy and people who will support them.  
    The class, which will teach attendees about herbal and natural remedies, will be offered from 6-8 p.m. Friday at Pajario Environmental Education Center.  
    Topics include a variety of herbs and natural remedies that can nourish and support a woman’s body during all the stages of pregnancy, including the post-partum months.              

  • Charlotte “Charlee” Shroyer, one of the artists in “Art: Dewey Decimal,” at Fuller Lodge, has been named a first place winner in the 2011 Top Ten International Women in the Arts competition, sponsored by ARTROM Gallery, Rome, Italy.
    Artists from more than 20 countries participated in this competition honoring the creative energy of women.
    Long fascinated by Cistercian abbeys and medieval architecture of Europe, Shroyer paints women of the ages. Often with animals at their sides, these paintings are much more than just female figures — they tell stories of women’s historical and emotional passages through time.

  • It is unusual to have an artist paint a complete set for an opera, but that is exactly what Los Angeles Chicano artist Gronk is doing during the month of April.  He is in residence in the Opera’s Stieren Hall, creating the visuals for this summer’s production of Vivaldi’s “Griselda.”  
    As director Peter Sellars explains, “I don’t know what he is going to do, I have not told him anything.  When an artist paints, he creates a special environment in which the singers will perform.”  Gronk prepared the set for the 2005 production of Golijov’s “Ainadamar,” covering the walls and the floor with his singular perspective on the opera.

  • Interests are often as diverse and as unique as the individual.  Regardless of where one’s interests lie, the library usually has something for everyone, and this month, the Fuller Lodge Art Center serves as a visual library just waiting to be perused, as the newest exhibition, “Art: Dewey Decimaled,” makes its debut with an opening from 5-7 p.m. Friday.

  • The Pajarito Spanish Dance Alliance will present its first recital of Flamenco and Spanish Dance at 3 p.m. April 16 in the Pajarito Room at Fuller Lodge.  
    The company is directed by Ellen Walton and includes students and professional artists from Los Alamos, Taos, Santa Fe, Dixon and La Jara.   
    Arturo Montoya, Kevin Rendón and Robert Romero will be on guitar. Dancers Catalina Rio Fernandez, Mary Woolston and Ellen Walton will join students Emily Brown, Bob Davis, Chris Jeffrey, Donna Martin, Opale Schappert, Annie Smith and Diane Trujillo in a variety of both, traditional Flamenco and classical Spanish dances.  

  • Karen Wray Fine Art Gallery will have a reception for its exhibit, “Old West, New West,” featuring the works of local artists Tim Althauser, Danne DeBacker, Cindy Valdez, Connie Pacheco and Kathy Hjeresen, from 5-7 p.m. April 29.
    “It feels like I’ve won the lottery every time I sell a painting … and now it’s happening more and more often,” said Nambé painter, Tim Althauser.
    He recently sold a painting to a collector in Dallas and a big painting to another collector in San Francisco. He has 10 paintings in the Downey Gallery on Canyon Road in Santa Fe, and he may have already sold the half-finished painting on his easel.
