Hi! I am a cloisonne enamelist who has just moved to town. I am in search of a studio/art space with a glass kiln where I can do my enameling work. Does anyone know of enameling classes anywhere or anything of the sort? Thanks!

Framing Concepts opening for July 18, 2008 . A special opening of a one man show of paintings by J. Waid Griffin. Traveling throughout the Southwest and the West, Waid has produced some awe inspiring paintings for all to see and or purchase. Thhis is a "must see..." show at Framing Concepts Gallery in the Northeast heights. Stop by for the opening and meet the artist and if you can't make the opening, the show remain up through the 16th of August. You will be impressed.

Hi everyone. Introducing the first STUDIO SHE art sale! This Sunday, June 29, from 10am to 7pm. "Studio She" is a group of five women who meet monthly to talk about work, give each other support, etc. We are reducing our inventory by offering it at very friendly prices. Come by for refreshments, buy early Christmas presents, have a chat, and pet the chickens!

Hope to see you there! One block north of Alameda on 2nd Street.

Be sure to make it to Coleman Contemporary Art to see - Sightseeing.
The sculptures are GREAT - very whimsical and charming. And the paintings by (Yours Truly - Will Johnson) are wild!!!
Then go down the road and eat at Thai Orchid - the flavors will rock your world!!
Love, Will

Albuquerque makes the top 25 list of Arts Destinations (again). Frankly, I didn't expect it this year because we were moved to the Large Cities category (population 500,000+). Ranked 2nd last year among mid-sized cities - we dropped to 7 this year but that's with competition from NYC, Chicago, San Francisco, etc. Santa Fe was 1 among small cities and Taos was number 5. I think this makes quite a story for New Mexico. Now, let's aim to get back toward the top of the list in 2009. Read it all at

In conversations with people who say that Albuquerque has no art scene - I have come to understand that what they are referring to is the fact that we don't have the collector dollars. We have wonderful artists - great galleries - but everyone is struggling to survive because the big money doesn't come here (at least not for our art). We have no one to blame but us (and that is a big collective US including city government and local business). Let's put some of our creativity to work coming up with a plan to get the word out to the world that Albuquerque is the place to buy art. The number of galleries would grow, artists would actually be able to make a living by showing here, perhaps art would reappear in the public schools. The potential is unlimited.
