Events program highlights arts, businesses, culture in Corrales

Corrales MainStreet will celebrate local arts, culture, beer and chile with its third “ArtsAlive!” event March 3.

Corrales Mainstreet is a nonprofit organization that helps bring together events that benefit the community by showing off local businesses and art. The organization’s goal is to turn Corrales into an arts and culture district — highlighting talent and artists, as well as unique culture and heritage sites. 

ArtsAlive!

Sandy Rasmussen, the executive director of Corrales Mainstreet, encourages everyone to come out and see what Corrales has to offer in terms of food, art and culture.

“We want people to come to Corrales and see what is fun and exciting,” Rasmussen said. “We would love to have everyone come spend their Sundays in Corrales village.”

Corrales will host a gathering of 15 local artists at Casa Perea, 4829 Corrales Road, from 1-5 p.m.

Small-scale and large-scale artwork will be on display for purchase, with prices for every budget. Artists will also be at the event to discuss particulars of their pieces.

Visitors are invited to try a variety of tastings from Corrales restaurants, including Corrales Bistro Brewery, Las Ristras, Casa Vieja and The Dish by Trish.

The previous ArtsAlive! event in January featured work from the Corrales Society of Artists, displayed in the new ExNovo Brewery on Corrales Road. Visitors enjoyed art displays while sipping samples from Bosque Brewery.

The theme this month for ArtsAlive! is the Art of Chile, which includes a special chile competition taking place at the event from 1-3 p.m. Visitors can purchase a $5 entry bracelet and enjoy five red chile tastings prepared by New Mexican chefs.

They are also encouraged to vote for the “people’s choice” of best chile award.

All profits benefit the Corrales Fire Department.
