BLACK MARKET GOODS GRAND OPENING
February 2, 2009—FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
ALBUQUERQUE—For the past three years, Black Market Goods art shows have been held in everything from warehouses to abandoned business buildings around the Duke city. Finally they have a home. Formerly Stove Gallery, the gallery at 112 Morningside N.E. in Upper Nob Hill will now house Black Market Goods’ art shows. The public grand opening is Friday Feb. 6, 2009 from 6-12 a.m., when more than 20 local artists and designers will enjoy a reception while displaying their work. Festivities include a fashion show, live music and a charity raffle to support New Mexico Legal Aid.
“I wanted to provide an alternative art venue to New Mexico artists while finally giving my nomadic art show a permanent home,” said Josh Jones, Black Market Goods founder. “Here we can put down some roots and provide a solid place for people to find us.”
New Mexico’s own Tractor Brewing Co. will be serving $4 pints during the reception. There is no cover the show but donations will be accepted.
Black Market Goods is located at 112 Morningside NE, four blocks east of Carlisle and one block north of Central in Upper Nob Hill in Albuquerque. The gallery is open every Tuesday-Thursday 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. and Fridays and Saturdays from 12-9 p.m. For more information and artist liaison, call 505-315-0636 or visit www.blackmarketgoods.net.

So we will be starting our live model sessions on the last Saturdays of every month from 2 to 5pm. This will be open to anyone who wants to stop by and add some BMG goodness to their sketchbooks!
At every session we will provide TWO fabulous models for your drawing pleasure--one pin-up model and one alt model which will split the time in half.
You are welcome to bring a sketchbook, drawing board, a small portable easel, if you'd like. You may bring the mediums of your choice but… Continue

This is a call for our new intern! We are looking for someone who is a jack of all trades willing to learn more! We need someone who can do 20 hours a week to start with. This would be a trial basis with no pay but trade work to begin with but then it would become a part time job if you're good enough.
All right, its about that time again when we need to find some extra help for the upcoming year. We are looking for an intern/ personal assistant. The 2009 year is going to be a great year… Continue

You can also bring a $1 item to participate in the recession-friendly gift exchange. Doors at the venue,… Continue

STOVE Goes Cold, PMS Resurfaces
The bad news is STOVE is closing. The good news is the space isn't going away--it's getting passed on to the folks of Black Market Goods, an underground traveling gallery (skip to the arts section to read about the details of the handover). The bad news is that means no more (ir)regular live music at 114 Morningside NE. But the good news is the last music event at the East Nob Hill artspace/venue will be a reunion of Albuquerque pirate queens Potty Mouth… Continue

No longer cooking with gas. A long time ago, STOVE founders Naython Williams and Thomas Haag took a guerilla art road trip. The goal: to do street art as they traveled, painting… Continue
