Offroad Productions, 2891-B Trades West Road, 505-670-9276 It takes some mettle to make a living from making art. In Mettle, Offroad presents a show of work by six artists — Chris Collins, Michael Freed, Peter Joseph, Adam Rosen, Diego Velázquez, and Peter Warren — that proves they’ve got it. “The idea that an artist’s life copes with adversity is not new,” states Rosen, the exhibit’s curator. “However, it takes a certain kind of artist to navigate the daily responsibilities and the desire to make things.” Mettle is open for viewing from noon to 3 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 22, or by appointment.
