Momma Said Knock You Off

Roger Shimomura makes it pop


A lifelong seeker of that acceptance, Shimomura found it in pop art when the movement was at its zenith. "Anything that was in our visual landscape was fair to use," he says. "We all bought into the idea that to execute a serious still life, you had to have wine bottles in it; pop taught us that it was OK to use a Coke bottle instead." 

An American Knockoff: Lecture, 6 pm Thursday, Aug. 9. Free. SITE Santa Fe, 1606 Paseo de Peralta, 989-1199. Artist reception, 5-7 pm Friday, Aug. 10. Free.  Eight Modern, 231 Delgado St., 995-0231

Mona Mur & En Esch: 7:30 pm Tuesday, Aug. 14. $10. Sol Santa Fe Stage & Grill, 37 Fire Place, 474-7322

The Reel World

The folks at Reel New Mexico concern themselves with two things: celebrating local cinema by exposing audiences to rarely seen films and, in turn, making it easy for cinephiles and filmmakers to interact with each other. This month, they're showcasing three shorts-each with a unique subject.


Reel New Mexico: Thursday, Aug. 9. $5 suggested donation. The Performance Space in La Tienda, Eldorado, 922-5013


Mountain man trade

Get Grizzly with It

The wind in the Mountain Man Trade Fair catches the mountain man's beard. His clothes, draped over his chiseled body, flow with it. He takes off his hat, looks you in the eye and gives a sharp, confident look. Then, he smiles and says, "Will you buy my moccasins?"


28th Annual Santa Fe Mountain Man Trade Fair: Thursday-Sunday, Aug. 9-12. $1 suggested donation. New Mexico History Museum, 113 Lincoln Ave., 476-5200
