This weekend you can explore a colorful survey of traditional indigenous textiles at the Museo de las Americas or take in the most contemporary examples of contemporary art at Dateline —  and that's not all. Here's a sampling of what's new at Denver galleries.

Museo de las Americas

A Mano/By Hand
Museo de las Americas
Through January 13

The Museo de las Americas goes old school for the upcoming holiday season with A Mano/By Hand, a pan-American folk-art bonanza of hand-woven textiles from Argentina, Chile, Peru, Bolivia, Ecuador, Panama, Mexico and, from the United States, the Pueblo, Navajo and Hopi cultures. There’s also an exhibit within the exhibit, Viaje al Hilo/Journey Through the Thread, showcasing carpets designed by Oaxacan artist Marisol Centeno and woven from wool colored by natural dyes.

During the show’s run, the Museo will host crocheting workshops inspired by the landscape of the Colorado Rockies with Mexican artist Daniela Edburg on October 15 and 22, and on November 18 it will throw a holiday Mercado de Navidad with handcrafted merchandise echoing the colors of the exhibit. For information, visit the Museo online.

First Time Caller, Long Time Listener
Lane Meyer Projects, Pon Pon Bar
Opening reception: 6 p.m. Friday, October 14

Two Denver artists — Matt O’Neill, a veteran of the scene, and Mario Zoots, a symbol of the city’s new wave of talent — team up for First Time Caller, Long Time Listener, a low-key, two-man homage to the city’s singular arts culture. This is a rare chance to view new work from O’Neill and an opportunity to see what Zoots is up to as he begins a two-year residency at RedLine. Also, it's just a nice reason to hang out at Pon Pon. Viva Denver!

Barbara Ciurej and Lindsay Lochman, a photography team with an international rep, drop in at CPAC with an exhibit of landscapes re-created using junk-food materials, making a statement on modern consumption and the disappearing West that couldn’t be more obvious.
