A&E Happenings for April 12-13

Images of high desert Southwest are the specialty of photographer Joaquin Salazar, the April guest artist at the Fifth Corner Photo Gallery in the Durango Arts Center. Salazar was born in Santa Fe and grew up with the big skies of Taos, Red River, Eagles Nest and the Sandia mountains. With Comb Ridge “just down the street” and the great Cedar Mesa on a close horizon, he began a 5-year documentation of his relentless travels to the canyons where he found the tug and pull of beauty like he had never seen or felt before. 
His work will be on exhibit through April 30. Enlarge photo
