A space for community, art and performance.
Open during all events and Wednesdays and Fridays from 1-5pm when there's an art show on display.

A Little History
The building that houses Tortuga was built sometime in the 1880s when the railroad came through Albuquerque. Its original purpose was a General store for the neighborhood and it has had many functions since then. According to our neighbors, it has been a cabinet shop, laundromat, a food distribution center and a YMCA.
Hosting a Wide Variety of Events
We opened the gallery with the idea that we would hold an art show each month and then host events that would invite people in to experience and view the art.
Here's a list of events hosted at Tortuga:
Poetry readings, poetry slam, kids art show, formal dinner party, many kinds of music, dance recitals, rehearsals, business meetings, conferences, workshops, playshops, community potlucks, film and discussion groups, classes, craft shows, peace rally.
