One Year of Chroma Studios!

Next month marks the one year anniversary of Chroma Studios. To celebrate, we are opening the upstairs studios along with the downstairs gallery for First Friday.

Featured artists for the month are Paula Manning-Lewis, co-owner/founder of Chroma Studios, and Chris Schelling, Chroma Studios artist.

There will… Continue

Hi my name is Kay,

I am a native of Albuquerque and have watched Albuquerque grow over the years from my North Valley home.

I am a working farmer and have a service I want to share with you. Ross' Gardens CSA has year round locally produced food items that can be received on a weekly basis, by becoming a member.

You ask what is a CSA - - - - "Community Supporting Agriculture"

For a membership fee, you in return are guarenteed the very best of the harvest. You are… Continue

Resting Places and an Appeal to Repeal

Every time I drive to the airport, I see the San Jose Cemetery just west of I-25 and south of Gibson. I always tell myself that one of these days I must stop and check out the cemetery on foot.

This past weekend I did just that.

Finding the entrance to the cemetery was a bit of a challenge – the dirt road from Gibson is blocked off due to construction on Gibson, and so I ended up entering from Edith just south of Gibson. There’s… Continue

Video of author Rick Collignon talking about his new book, at Bookworks

We were fortunate enough to have Rick Collignon, New Mexico author of Perdido and the forthcoming Madewell Brown, stop by the store last week to talk to our staff. He'll be at Bookworks on May 17 at 3 p.m., but here's a preview. This is our first attempt taking video with our Flip camera, so it's a little shaky! We're still learning… Continue

Time to Celebrate Persian New Year!

No Rooz is almost here! That's Persian New Year, which falls on the first day of spring (technically, the exact moment of the vernal equinox; this year, it's March 21 at 5:44am). I grew up within a sizable Iranian community in Milwaukee, and this was the social event of the year, hands down. There would be one or more huge parties with everyone dressed to the nines (and those Iranian ladies can get fancy, let me tell you), tons of food,… Continue

The Alvarado Has Come Back For A Visit, So Give the Old Girl A Chance

The Albuquerque Museum recently opened a new exhibit that explores the history, style and romantic era of the Alvarado Hotel. Our own beautiful old Harvey House, right in the heart of our city, knocked down in 1970 and now kind-of memorialized by the Alvarado Transit Center, which sits on the same ground.

I went for a very quick look this past week, but wanted to save the real visit to be shared with my guy, who is a wild… Continue

Cross posted to the Desert of the Real Economic Analysis

This Sunday's New York Times contains an article about a Detroit Band from the 1970s entitled "Death was Punk before Punk was Punk".

The band consisted of three brothers, David, Bobby and Dannis Hackney from Detroit. They began playing R&B in Detroit in the early 1970s before moving to rock and roll in a style of the… Continue

Life and Death on the West Mesa

Most of the time I am taking photographs of the beautiful scenery in New Mexico, but when we travel to Pajarito Mesa things change a bit. Today I spent the afternoon in the west mesa, and I don't know why it is, but I get this compelling sense of urgency to drive myself to the area for pictures.

Last Wall Standing

At first glance… Continue

The Sunday Poem: Hakim Bellamy... Home Invasion

"Home Invasion" is a love poem to the wonders of the city and countryside that stole his heart. Now how can Hollywood compete with that?

Hakim Bellamy is a two-time National Champion in the Poetry Slam scene. He was a member of the 2005 National Poetry Slam Champs Team Albuquerque in his first year of poetry slam. The following year he was a member of the 2006 College Unions Poetry Slam Invitational Champs Team UNM. He has won the City… Continue

Heartbreaking Price of Standarized Testing

The student I work with gave me a picture for me yesterday. He had folded it up nicely and put in an envelope, addressing it on the front with my name. I opened it to find a drawing of a boy, tears running down his cheeks. Above it was a string of random letters, crudely drawn. I could make out a few, an "h", an "r", "o", a "y". Phonetically it looked like it spelled "hooray". Most likely he wrote down the few letters he remembers, because unlike many other children his age and younger, he… Continue

What happened Friday in Santa Fe

Since Someguy takes the weekend off, and I know some of you only get your news from DCF, as sad as that may be, (no offense Someguy, you do us all a good service), ya'll need to know that the death penalty is nearly no more in New Mexico. Our legislators voted 24-18 to repeal it today. No matter how you feel about it, this is historic, as NM may join many states across the nation that have recently abolished the death penalty. It is all up to our Governor now. It is on his desk. It is my hope… Continue

Morning Fix: Not Spring Yet


Added by Somegye on March 13, 2009 at 5:30am — 1 Comment


Last weekend's Global Dance Fest offering was brought to N4th by Gunilla Heilborn of Sweden. The title, "Potato Country," referred either to an Irish story that was woven into the piece, or the emotional range of some of the characters, or more likely, those things and more. As this year's GDF unfolds with its Latitudes North theme, it provides multidimensional glimpses into the Scandinavian soul. The lack of linear narrative… Continue

Stories of children and personal mom stories may be found on my blog...

Here's one post that sums up the purpose of the Maternal Dreamer shows:


A few years ago Fred and Kristen Wilson of Stawberry/Muddy Wheel Gallery in Albuquerque New Mexico together created a necklace I saw in their shop. I was immediately drawn to it. Kristen said it's so appropriate that of all the necklaces… Continue
