September First Friday ARTScrawl (September 1st; 5-8pm)
This month, we welcome artist Ashton S. Phillips. Ashton presents “Ancient Alchemy”, a debut of new abstract works. He will give a talk at 6:30pm discussing his process and the inspiration for the show. Live music by classical cellist Lisa Donald at 7pm, and as always, light refreshments.
It’s a HOOPLA! Join Ghostwolf in celebrating 20 years ofECLECTICA magazineon Saturday September 9th from 1-4! ECLECTICA magazine is not bound by formula or genre and full of engaging perspectives that characterize the work of a broad sampling of writers.
“Hoopla” means “excitement surrounding an event or situation, especially when considered to be unnecessary fuss”, and that’s pretty much what we’re doing. We’ll have poetry, fiction, and non-fiction readings, guest artists, music, and treats!
Guest artists for one-weekend only, include Susan Klebanoff, an internationally renowned tapestry artist whose work hangs in the Smithsonian; Laura Robbins, whose vibrant pieces can be found everywhere in Albuquerque, most notably at the Botanic Gardens Dragonfly Sanctuary; Pamela Gemin, who makes “vintage inspired jewelry” in Flagstaff; and Victoria Mlady, an Albuquerque photographer and painter whose “high quality archival pigment ink digital prints” translate to bold, bright, and beautiful images.
