There’s something plaid-ish going on at Counter Culture Café (930 Baca St., 505-995-1105). When you order your food or coffee, you’re standing on a new, painted installation that is basically an abstraction on the plaid theme. Look around and you’ll see paintings, photographs, and other works by more than 40 artists, all fitting the theme Plaid All Over, which is the name of the exhibit/happening organized by Nina Mastrangelo and Cheri Ibes. The show hangs through April.
At least a touch of plaid is the dress code for the opening party and reception at 5 p.m. on Saturday, April 12, at the coffee shop. If you’re woefully plaidless, you can get some at the neighboring shops Boho Clothing & Furnishings and Hyperclash Clothing or at the “plaid shop” at the café during the event.
