What You'll Get
Unlike skin, miniseries, and meatloaf, art only improves with time. For $17, take advantage of 365 art-infused days with a one-year membership plus $20 gift card to Chroma Studios. The downtown gallery is a contemporary haven for wall hangings, artists, and musicians and host to First Fridays and Downtown Artscrawl. Membership includes 10% off purchases and two free tickets to any one of Chroma's Intimate concerts. This Groupon also includes a free bumper sticker.
From owner/proprietor Paula Manning Lewis's harmonic interpretations of guitars to painterly creations by Caroline C. Blaker, Chroma Studios houses a bevy of local and cultural pieces. This month, the creative hub hones in on the works of New Mexico artists and celebrates its two-year anniversary. View a list of showcased artists here to get a feel for featured talents. Chroma's collection includes jewelry, ceramics, photography, and mixed media.
If failed resolutions to hit the canvas or finally clothe your indecent walls still loom like a nimbostratus cloud in the back of your mind, this Groupon presents a sharp kick of much-needed inspiration. A discount on purchases and two tickets to one of the gallery's regular Intimate concerts give brains a well-rounded cultural wash. Visit the gallery Wednesday through Saturday from noon until 6 p.m. and until 10 p.m. on Friday.
Though still too young of a business to have drummed up much in the way of reviews, Chroma Studios has established itself as an apple of the Albuquerque press's eye. The art gallery won Downtown Action Team's LOOK Award for Best New Business in 2009 and was named Best Artist Community in Alibi's Best of Burque 2010 coverage. It's also been featured on Channel 7 News.
