A&E Happenings for May 30

Ten unique needlepoint pieces created by Jim DiSanto will hang on the brick walls of Maria’s Bookshop through May. The artwork depicts Mayan and Aztec historical and religious imagery. With more than 36,000 stitches, each piece takes DiSanto about four months to complete.

“I first got interested in doing needlepoint in the mid 1970s,” DiSanto writes of his craft. “I had spent seven years working on a law degree and ... I studied from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. after the children had gone to bed...I had to find some recreation to occupy my evening time. I became aware that Roosevelt Greer for the then Los Angeles Rams did needle point, and I decided that that recreation was much better than watching TV.”
Durango Chamber Music Festival

The festival will conclude at 7 p.m. today at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church, 910 East Third Ave.
