Top Picks for the Week

A new exhibition bringing attention to forgotten women found in early photographs will debut this weekend.

Massachusetts-based artist Jodi Colella creates embroideries on top of photos of women from 19th-century daguerreotype portraits from a museum archive. While the photos of men all came with abundant personal information, almost all of the women were unknown. In a show aiming to draw a comparison between women’s current social status with how they have been remembered in historical settings, Colella’s embroideries “further obscures their identities.”

Unidentified Women opens tonight at form & concept, 435 S. Guadalupe, from 5-7 p.m.

SANTA FE SOUND: A local singer whose pop-folk albums can leave you either sitting back and relaxing or jamming in your seat will perform this weekend. Kito Peters, a guitarist and singer whose work always maintains a light, breezy feel no matter the genre — and his work ranges from rock to country to pop — has multiple New Mexico Music Awards and nominations, including Best CD of the Year for 2013’s “Capital Dreams.” He’s also won Best Pop CD for 2007’s “Stories,” and his song “Tarnished Chrome” was also honored.

The concert is at 5:30 p.m. Sunday at Teatro Paraguas, 3205 Calle Marie. Tickets are by donation and can be reserved at 505-424-1601.

UNDERSTANDING WATTS: A book of personal, never-before-published letters by famous Zen Buddhism scholar and philosopher Alan Watts will be presented at Collected Works bookstore this week. Watts was born in the U.K. but specialized in Asian and Eastern civilization philosophy and was known for making it understandable to his Western audience in about 20 books. The letters, which show all aspects of his life from his early days studying to be a priest to his time experimenting with psychedelic drugs in the 1960s, also include commentary, old photos and drawings from his daughters, Joan and Anne.His granddaughter, local dance instructor Myra Krien, will be reading from the book and discussing her memories of Watts at Collected Works, 202 Galisteo, at 6:30 pm. Tuesday.
