Dusty Low playing at the Rio Grande Theatre in Las Cruces, NM

 

Theatre - Dusty Low

Across the sun drawn sands of the southwest, a group of modern day troubadours has formed. By combining alternative country influences with a dash of folk, americana and jazz, Dusty Low has created a sound that is at once familiar yet surprisingly fresh. Sam, Jesse and Danny Sullivan, after touring for many years, have forged a new direction that incorporates all of their collective influences. With the addition of Anthony Movsesian whose main influence is jazz, the group is constantly cultivating agile and well crafted compositions that easily cross back and forth between many of the cherished American music forms. Add to this, superb harmonies and the result is truly exceptional. 6:30 PM. Doors open at 6:00 PM. Free.

Gallery Exhibit

“Assemblages - Reconsidering
the Printing Plate”

Main Street Gallery and Big Picture present visual artist, Ouida Touchon who now lives in Mesilla. Touchon spends much of her time at the press or the easel and is also an art educator and teaches at the Dona Ana Community College..

This exhibit springs from the notion of reusing some of Touchon’s inventory of woodcut and etching plates that she has carved and editioned with ink on paper. In her printmaking she often has detritus that pertains to the image as well as the plate itself which she has assembled in a pleasing and meaningful way to recycle and recreate new life to something considered useless and having served its purpose.

“I have assembled these findings as well as scraps of the prints themselves, and bits of watercolor of my own, book-end sheets and text pages, scraps of fillet that my framer couldn’t bear to throw away, metal leaf, wood panel, handmade paper scraps…all of this comes together to speak a new language.”

The exhibit runs through the month of October. Gallery hours are Tues. - Fri. 10-5, Sat. 9:30-1:30.
