Art, the Special Food

There is something in art, if it is done well, that can touch ones soul and feed a special nutrient to the human spirit. Music often accomplishes this in an immediate manner. And visual arts can also provide the food that we sometimes need that we didn’t realize we needed to keep us balanced and healthy in this life.

CORRALES – New Mexico

Saturday, July 10th, 2010

CORRALES – New Mexico is just north of Albuquerque. There are mountain views and horse trails along the Rio Grande River and the adjacent bosque. Beyond the river is Sandia Indian Reservation. Corrales has been inhabited since approximately 500 A.D. and currently includes many horse ranches.

The village of Corrales is in the high dessert with an average annual rainfall of a little over 9 inches. The average high temperature in July is 90 degrees, the low in January is about 20 degrees. In the high dessert, 90 degrees is not that hot because of the low humidity and 20 degrees is not that cold considering the temperature goes up quickly during the day at an attitude of 5,000 feet above sea level.

There is a population of 9,200 in Corrales (not including the many horses).

There are many educational and entertainment opportunities within a 15 mile radius of Corrales. Every year there is the Corrales Art Studio Tour anniversary which consists of over 50 artists offering paintings, sculpture, photography, jewelry, ceramics, glass, fiber arts and more. You can meet the artists, learn what inspires their creations, and discover new art mediums.

Don’t miss this wonderful town “CORRALES” on your next visit to New Mexico!
