Cowapalooza and The Wooden Cow Gallery and Art Space




---------------------------------------------photos by Elaine Russell

So -- anyone who knows me knows that I have been busy with a project called the Wooden Cow Gallery. It started as an idea by a few local artists, and my daughter and I joined the herd in April. After months of fundraisers and scouting out places, we plunked down money to rent a space at the Mossman Center in ABQ.

We had our soft opening in September, and our Grand Opening in October. November we had a Dia De las Muertos Show that was a huge hit ( and I was one of the featured artists ); as was our December show "What's in the Box" featuring Regina Portscheller.
We also have a Bizarre Bazaar SALE in the back through the end of this month.

Last night we had our first official benefit concert (Cowapalooza)... which featured the musical stylings of Miss Chrissy, as well as the jammin' beat of The BluFunk All Stars. ( see photos ). It was graciously hosted by 1Kind Studios on 11th and Coal. (you guys ROCK !)

So -- we're mmooooooving along. Please see the links for the Wooden Cow Gallery, our website and our blog. We also have pics posted on Flickr and Webshots.
