Artists, Oscars, Olympics: President’s Day Weekend Best Bets


It’s President’s Day this weekend. For some it means a three-day weekend, but for all of us, here are some cool events to check out.

Steve Hanks Slide Show and Master Talk

This Friday evening, World Renowned artist and water-colorist Steve Hanks will be giving a master talk and slide show at the James Dwyer Police Substation beginning at 5 PM with a reception and silent auction benefitting the New Mexico Art League prior to the talk.

Hanks began drawing at the age of sixteen when his parents moved the family from Southern California to Albuquerque, New Mexico. Many of Hanks’ memorable works focus on a sensitive portrayal of women and children. Hanks has accrued an admirable array of awards and accolades including being named one of America’s top ten artists by U.S. Art Magazine in 1993.
