    Painting can be an amazing pursuit, but can also be quite lonely.  CAC now offers FREE Open Studio Space for its members.  Imagine having three hours on Friday mornings to devote to your art - to paint/draw in the company of other artists in a casual, supportive setting.  Music, coffee, and treats too!  A safe place to share ideas, get suggestions for problem paintings, and share knowledge and techniques with others to enhance your work. Each session ends with a 45-minute group critique if you choose to participate.  This group has been meeting informally for the past year, and is now expanding to CAC members.  Feel free to drop in, or come on a regular basis.  Just be sure to RSVP 24 hours in advance to reserve your art table.  Limited to water media, pastels, colored pencils, charcoals, etc. (no oils due to ventilation.)  Max of 10 adults.  Some experience with your media is required, but all levels are invited.  This is not a class, and there is no instructor.  It is open studio time.  Please write to info@corralesartscenter with any questions you have about joining the group.  

    Please RSVP each and every Friday that you wish to attend. Clicking the RSVP link will set up an email for you addressed to Tina Stallard.  Please type in the Subject line "RSVP for Open Studio."  If you are new to the group please type in your name and phone number in the body of the email.   

    A 24-hour notice is required.

    Many people find Wagner’s music loud, bombastic and overpowering;  but the exquisitely beautiful music in Lohengrin makes this his best opera. It has everything - great choruses, beautiful arias, stirring drama in addition to a damsel in distress and a knight in shinning armor.  Opera Southwest’s spring production is a first in New Mexico.  Attend this class and find out who the mysterious stranger really is.

    INSTRUCTOR: Dr. Julius Kaplan, PhD, is an art historian by training - with a specialty in modern art (1850 to present.)  Most of his career was at California State University, San Bernardino where he was Chair of the Art Department and then Dean of Graduate Studies and Research.   He and his wife are life-long opera fanatics, and retired to New Mexico to be near the Santa Fe Opera.  

    TUITION:  $18 CAC Members, $20 Non Members.

    Morgan Fife makes her debut as director of a Readers Theater version of  "THE DUCK VARIATIONS" by David Mamet on Saturday, April 6th at 7:00 pm. The play dramatizes the old adage that people who talk with the most authority about something are the ones most likely to know the least about it. Two women discuss the ways of ducks, making observations about life that are profoundly hilarious.

    The play is traditionally written for two men, but Fife will present a fresh take on the play by casting women in both roles, making no other changes to the text. Alison Campbell will portray George and  Rhea Alper will play Emil in this modern variation of the classic play.

    David Mamet is a member of the American Theatre Hall of  Fame and is a Pulitzer Prize and Drama Desk Award winning playwright.

    Doors open at 6:30 pm, and the play begins promptly at 7:00 pm for one hour.The play is meant for mature audiences due to its content.
