Let’s put some spring in our step this weekend and take a stroll down the avenue. Here’s what’s happening along Becker on Saturday, from 6th to 1st Streets:

A six-artist show of watercolor, oil, and acrylic canvases; stone tables; and handmade boxes, graciously hosted by Kelly Cross. Joyce Butler, Joanne Ladisa, Jim Lenhert, Gilbert Mello, Darlene Robertson, and Mark Rockey are exhibiting. We hear this show is “seeworthy,” so come feast your eyes.
Books on Becker 12n to 5p
A FREE Cool Beans planting kit and two FREE books for each kid who visits. Adults can browse a curated assortment of environment-themed books selected by local author Laura Sanchez. Bookstore sales support the Belen library, Belen classrooms, and community literacy.
