FAST ON THE DRAW

The Cen­ter for Con­tem­po­rary Arts presents a unique, fam­ily-friendly event and fundraiser to sup­port its vis­ual arts pro­gram. “Ren­der Ben­der: A Col­li­sion of Artis­tic Won­der­ment” is an op­por­tu­nity to see dozens of artists cre­ate draw­ings in situ, which can then be pur­chased for $75 per piece. The event is on Satur­day, Feb. 6, at 5 p.m. and in­cludes food and drinks, along with live mu­sic and other per­for­mances. There is a $10 cover charge at the door.

“Ren­der Ben­der” is em­ceed by The Won­der In­sti­tute’s Linda Durham. The artists are set up at long ta­bles, where they draw dur­ing two hour­long pe­ri­ods with an in­ter­mis­sion be­tween them. The draw­ings are hung on the gallery walls, are bid on dur­ing a silent auc­tion, and can be taken home by the buyer at the end of the evening. Par­tic­i­pat­ing artists in­clude David Ru­dolph, Frank Et­ten­berg, Greta Young, Rose Simp­son, Tim Jag, and David O’Brien — about 50 artists in all.

The in­ter­mis­sion fea­tures per­for­mances by Greg Butera, Wise Fool New Mex­ico, and the Par­ti­zani Brass Band. Lo­cal food ven­dors in­clude Santa Fe Oxy­gen and Heal­ing Bar, La Loncherita Sal­vadoreña, and Cheese­mon­gers of Santa Fe. Tarot card read­ings, face paint­ing, a chalk­board wall, and other ac­tiv­i­ties are avail­able through­out the night. CCA is at 1050 Old Pe­cos Trail; call 505-982-1338 for in­for­ma­tion.
