  • Mandrell slated to perform Saturday

    Michael Mandrell, a contemporary American finger style guitarist whose orchestral compositions offer equal parts world and new age, an array of middle Eastern rhythms and scales, with tinges of folk and an infusion of Celtic overtones, will perform at 7 p.m. Saturday at the Unitarian Church of Los Alamos.
     His latest recording, “Returning and Returned” is a collection of his solo guitar work that covers a wide range of styles.

  • Take a 'Walk in the Woods'

    Take a walk in the woods with Tim Althauser, as Karen Wray Fine Art Gallery presents his first solo exhibition. The opening reception will be from 5-7 p.m. Sept. 23 at Wray’s gallery, 2101 Trinity Dr., Suite B-2.
    Five new paintings will be on display for the first time. Althauser completed these paintings while ash from the Los Conchas fire rained down into his yard.
    The fire was a reminder of his love for the beauty of trees, especially Aspens.
    “Aspens are the rebirth trees. They make shade for the conifers and the pine to grow,” Althauser said. “Aspens are the forest renewal tree and the first tree to come in after a fire. To me it’s the birth of a forest when baby Aspens come up.”

  • Forgotten story rediscovered--see attachment

    For an amateur archaeologist and curious explorer,  there is nothing comparable to visiting the forgotten towns and villages of yesteryear. Handling the artifacts and witnessing the ruined walls first-hand can often yield important information not found in the pages of books or scholarly papers.    
    However, sifting through texts is sometimes necessary to glean important details and place artifacts in the context of time and space. In fact, I’ve realized that while physical artifacts are exciting, comparable knowledge can be found among the pages of a book.
