One rope

One block  

All of us


Wednesday, November 13th, 12 noon to 2 pm

408 12th Street, Carrizozo, NM


Please join us for a community rope-making workshop lead by Carrizozo AiR Yesenia Bello.  No prior knowledge is necessary.


Together, we will twist rope into existence the length of one Carrizozo block. Rope-making can be a way to reflect and make space for the people and places that surround you, while learning a new helpful skill. Bring your walking shoes and a willingness to work with others.


You are encouraged to bring your own threads to add to the strand. Threads can be found lying around. Some suggestions include: dental floss, shoe strings, long and thin leaves, ribbons. 


Refreshments will be served. 



Jennifer with ZZQ BBQ suggested that I send an email to Carrizozo residents that I have been taking fruit & veggies to Ruidoso for a few months now -- Colorado peaches, pears, and apricots in the summer, produce boxes and organic produce during the winter, strawberries and veggies from Poteet, TX, in late March, apricots and cherries in June  I have been stopping for Jennifer the last few weeks, and she said others could meet me there on my way through (in the morning or evening on my way back from Alamogordo) on Tuesdays.  My deadline to order is Monday at 11am for Tuesday delivery.    To reserve your produce, check out  or just email me

to   Kara Lanctot   (970) 261-745   you can reply on this email 


Please join us in welcoming Carrizozo

Artists in Residence November 1-15!

My mouth is a motherlode

solo exhibition at Tiger Strikes Asteroid curated by Teresa Silva


Yesenia Bello from Chicago, IL

“Most recently, I have been captivated by how to trace the fleeting, witnessing things that slip

away and fall out of place -- not on a timeline that unfolds wholly in front of your eyes, but rather

on a much grander, almost unmeasurable scale.”



Connor Frew

from McKinney, TX


“My late grandfather owned a gift shop with his wife in downtown Raton, NM, before they closed the business in the early 00’s. My father grew up in Albuquerque during the height of the Cold War, studied mechanical engineering to become a systems engineer for defense contractors. My grandmother was a secretary for Sandia Labs.

The Carrizozo AIR residency would allow me the space and time to develop work, writings, performances, and readings that deal with my personal historical relationship to the landscape, and the landscape’s relationships to the spectres of violence, love, loss, trauma, and capitalism.”
