Favorite Things Friday

Posted by on Jun 15, 2012 in Uncategorized

With a high in the mid 90s and a chance of showers on Saturday, it’s important to plan your weekend accordingly. Here are some of the events we’re checking out this weekend:

Get your art fix at the group show, Gravure–The Chameleon of Printmaking tonight, June 15 from 5–8 p.m. at the New Grounds Print Workshop & Gallery. Photogravure is the perfect marriage of photography and printmaking. Rather than exposing negatives to photographic paper, in gravure the image is exposed to a light-sensitive plate which is then developed and can be printed like an etching. New Grounds Print Workshop has trained many artists in this medium. And be sure to check out the gravure demonstration by Aaron Bass from 6:30 to 7 p.m. during the reception.

Develop your inner beer connoisseur  at Il Vicino Brewery’s Year of Beer Fest tomorrow, June 16 at Il Vicino Brewery. The festivities will begin at noon and last until 8 p.m. Enjoy 30 different styles of Il Vicino beer, live music, food and merriment on their breezy patio. Tickets are $20 per person. Cheers!

Celebrate New Mexico’s 100th birthday at the Centennial Summerfest tomorrow, June 16 at 3 p.m.; featuring a celebration of arts, dance, music, cuisine, science, technology, and the exciting atmosphere of old Route 66. Highlighting New Mexico’s diverse history, six pavilions will span Central Avenue between 3rd and 10th Streets, with additional attractions on the adjacent side streets. The highlight of the event will be the main stage 9 p.m. appearance of the popular Grammy Award-winning group, Los Lobos. And the best part? It’s free!
