August First Friday ARTScrawl (August 3rd; 5-8pm) Heather Ward
This month we welcome artist Heather Ward. Heather’s masterful scratchboard renditions of wild animals are both beautiful and haunting. Ward’s love of nature and dedication to its conservation is wholly apparent in these stunning representations. Light refreshments served.
Old Town ARTFUL Saturday (August 18th; 1-4pm) Born to Bee Wild!
In celebration of National Honey Bee Awareness day AND Bad Poetry day, artists present bee-autiful art, honey-centric snacks and poetry worthy of a Vogon himself.
Ghostwolf is not adverse
to visitors sharing verse;
Doesn’t need to be terse,
but the better is the worse.
Groop, we implore thee to join the buzz.
(Pssst- err- bzzzt? Please join us with your own bad poetry, extra points for referencing ANY pollinator!)

CLAUDIA CHAVEZ & SEAN PAUL GALLEGOS
American Jewelry from New Mexico
Where: Albuquerque Museum When: Ongoing, regular museum hours
Per the museum website: “Albuquerque Museum presents a major exhibition with accompanying book published by the Museum of New Mexico Press, surveying, through more than 300 spectacular objects, all aspects of jewelry adornment from prehistory to the present. Rather than focus on a single culture group, individual artist, time period, or medium as have most jewelry exhibitions and publications, American Jewelry from New Mexico tells the stories of diverse heritages simultaneously, as artists live, in concert, trade, and adaptation with their neighbors.

“By the Horns” by Sean Paul Gallegos
If you follow Ghostwolf artist Roe LiBretto on Facebook, you’ve probably seen work in progress posts for Epiphany. This 80” x 32” watercolor on wood panel was commissioned by Karly and Jason White in celebration of their five year wedding anniversary. This piece is rife with symbolism, as is all of Roe’s work, and reflects the moment in which the couple realized their destiny to be life partners. Epiphany is a beautiful and very personal work and we’re grateful that this loving couple is sharing it with us for the month of August. Come visit Epiphany at Ghostwolf before it goes to its permanent home. You can learn more about this painting on Roe’s website and blog.
