Immiscible Polarity: Hand Eye Collective

Since becoming co-publisher of Duke City Fix, I try hard not to constantly promote everything that happens where I work.  Let me tell you, it's a difficult task.  I have decided to make an exception and shamelessly talk about a new installation happening at the…

Ask Adelita: Drawing Groups

Dear Adelita,

Are there any drawing groups in Albuquerque? Or any women focused art groups? I'm a mom, an artist, and working full time. I'm looking for a group of women to inspire, support and engage each other to make art... Topic driven or not. Evenings and weekends, a must.…

The Art of Creating

I love making art.  I love being crafty.  I often have “artsy craftsy” get-togethers with friends and family at my house.  Nothing is more fun than getting together with people you love, having some snacks, maybe a few cocktails, and then creating something with your hands. 

We were always crafty at our house…

Albuquerque in the New Year

The last day of the year is, of course, the perfect time to reflect on all that has happened.  I feel love for my beautiful family, my little patch of dirt in the North Valley where my home sits, and my animals that remind me of unconditional love.

Art by the People

The folk art/recycle art community in this town is full of raw talent, quirkiness, and in some cases, pure genius.  What better way to celebrate all of this than sharing art, music and food? Today was the 11th Annual Corkfest festival in the South Valley.

To give you an idea of the history of this…
