I know I have said this over and over again, but I have met the most wonderful and fascinating people right here on the Duke City Fix community. I was so excited to get a message from a fellow DCFer, JMG, (also known as Jill) saying that she had…Continue
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…Continue
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.…
I really need some suggestions from everyone at Duke City Fix! My 17 year old niece is going to stay with me over the summer. She's from the Midwest and has only visited me in Albuquerque for a couple of days at a time through the years. I don't have kids and am not sure what to do with her…Continue

Speaking of love, I have a whole lot of it for my hometown. …Continue
A very wonderful, thoughtful, and visionary group of people created a place for the whole community to share - the Rail Yards Market. It was an overwhelmingly successful market that brought people from all over the city to gather as a community.
The city has a different idea of what that space should be. The…Continue

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…Continue
I happened upon One Day Tour of Albuquerque on About.com and was thinking about all the places I recommend to people visiting our fair city. One day only makes it a bit of a challenge…Continue
