Actors committed to telling their stories with integrity, humor, poetry and music founded Equilibrium Theater Company in 2001. The current company is under the direction of Brian Haney, who along with all the members of Equilibrium, present a night of comedy, romance and space travel in Night at the ETC Museum. The new play is written by Peter Diseth in collaboration with the company and is all about Bob, the museum guard, who is feeling insecure—but what he doesn’t know is that the museum exhibits are planning to make him a star!

Buen Viaje mean Good Journey in Spanish. Since 1984, Buen Viaje Dance Company members have shared a good journey with their audiences by performing original choreography and presenting participatory workshops for people of all ages and abilities. Under the direction of Bryn Naranjo the Buen Viaje Dancers perform new work choreographed by Bill Zimmer and Bradd Howard. With Love & Light conveys stories of happiness, love and everyday challenges and above all, a love for dance.

A special evening on Saturday, June 27, begins with a preshow reception at 6pm to celebrate the resident companies and to honor friends and supporters of VSA.

The 2015 N4th Season is the final of six exhibits, events and performances at North Fourth Art Center as part of On the Map: Unfolding Albuquerque Art + Design, a citywide collaboration taking place from January through June 2015.

International Exhibit Features Artwork by Day Artist Loida Moreno

All About Art Show

Abington Art Center
515 Meetinghouse Road
Jenkintown, PA

Exhibit Overview and Online Art Sales

Two acrylic paintings by Loida Moreno were selected for the international, juried exhibition and sale, All About Art, which is annually presented by MossRehab in Elkins Park, Pennsylvania. Due to anticipated renovations, the 2015 exhibit is being hosted at nearby Abington Art Center.

All About Art focuses on work by artists with disabilities and is open to a wide range of media. “My work is called abstract,” Loida wrote in her bio, “and I really like that people can interpret my work differently. My technique is to make big strokes and because of my disability I need to work this way, but it also makes interesting paintings.” Congratulations, Loida!

Lifetime Achievement and
Support of the Arts in NM

Ralph Gonzales Nominated for Governor’s Award

Longtime VSA Day Artist Ralph Gonzales has been nominated by New Mexico State Rep. Deborah Armstrong for the 2015 Governor’s Awards for Excellence in the Arts.

Born in Las Vegas, Ralph has lived all but two years in New Mexico and for most of his life has lived in Albuquerque. Ralph began working as an artist in 2000, the year he began attending VSA arts of New Mexico. Ralph’s creative abilities, combined with an innate sense of color and a dedication to doing the best he can do, has turned Ralph into a prolific and successful artist.

Thank you, Rep. Deborah Armstrong and staff assistant Kelly Smyer for this exciting nomination and for the recognition of Ralph’s achievements.
