  • Spanish Market artists share their work

    Anyone who’s ever been to Spanish Market in Santa Fe knows how popular and crowded the event can be. In fact, the crowds sometimes serve as a deterrent for some who would otherwise attend the event.
    What if there was a way to get a look at some of the artists’ work without having to actually go to Spanish Market? Imagine a smaller, indoor venue where market artists display and sell their creations.
    The Arte Norteño Tradicional Spanish Market Art Show, Sale and Reception will be from 4-8 p.m. Friday at the Nick Salazar Center for the Arts at Northern New Mexico College in Española.

  • Art Center Blues

    The word “rhapsody” is so often associated with music that an art exhibit titled “Rhapsody in Blue” might inspire curiosity. One of the definitions for “rhapsody” is an ecstatic expression of feeling or enthusiasm, which makes it completely appropriate for art. There is, of course, a wave of blue through the Fuller Lodge Art Center gallery and the directions artists adventured with the theme should inspire an appreciation in viewers.

  • All Finn the family

    Sibling rivalry often pushes children to try and out-do one another in various activities such as sports, games and academics. For the Finn family, music is no exception.
    Ryan and Johnny Finn, along with their sister Madeleine Finn Thibodeaux are musicians and siblings. Despite the fact that they all have their own ways of performing music,  they will regroup to bring the sounds of jazz to Fuller Lodge at 7 p.m. Friday.

  • Enchanted Parks

    As the Los Alamos Historic District prepares for the possibility of becoming part of this nation’s first non-contiguous national park, it has the opportunity to look at not only what makes the current national parks so extraordinary, but what has always made north-central New Mexico extraordinary.

  • Youth as teachers

     Youth Earth Service Corps participants were on hand at the Betty Ehart Senior Center last week to talk about their projects, promote the Los Alamos Youth Food Project and solicit volunteers. The youth spent the early part of the day at Sombrillo, planting and building raised beds at the Teen Center.
