publisher’s note


Selecting an eye-catching cover is something my colleagues and I spend a considerable amount of time on, as we cull through the many striking images that come our way. With more than 200 quality galleries in town, the amount of stunning art available to us—and to you as a collector—is overwhelming. And no issue of the Santa Fean provides more options than June/July—our highly anticipated Art Issue. One of our goals with this issue is to assist you in sorting through all the amazing art that’s out there and finding the artists and the works that stir your emotions, stimulate you visually, and produce some other indescribable effect on your senses. I think of this effect as the magic that makes an art purchase happen. I’m often asked about my favorite style or type of art. While I do have certain favorites, it’s the way a piece conjures a feeling within me that causes me to fall in love with it. And it truly is about falling in love—about seeing that one image that touches something inside of you. Experience teaches us that risk is involved in any effort that might result in a significant payoff. Not surprisingly, all the art featured in this issue came about because an artist took a risk. For example, in some cases an established artist who built a reputation on a signature style may have decided to move out of his or her “safe” zone and create something that might not necessarily sell. The trade-off for the artist, of course, is creative satisfaction. The success of a safe bet is not nearly as thrilling as the payoff of a long shot. Art buyers are the beneficiaries of this artistic risk. It’s a rare art show in Santa Fe that doesn’t feature something that represents risk and doesn’t have at least one piece of art that makes an emotional impact on me. I also gravitate to images that are unlike anything I’ve seen, that suggest the artist has broken new ground. As you look at the incredible art featured in this issue, I hope you are moved by the risks each artist has taken. By putting one of these beautiful works in your home, you will enjoy that stirring emotional effect every day of your life.

Q: Do you remember how it felt to buy your first piece of art in Santa Fe? “My first piece was an abstract painting by George Millar. I met him while wandering up Canyon Road in a Santa Fe trance. I loved that he talked to me, explained his process, and signed the back of the work for me. It was like taking home a little piece of Santa Fe: totally indigenous and original. I still have it!”—Anne Mulvaney



june/july 2013

“We were very excited to purchase a sculpture from the artist Charlie Miner because it was the first piece of a new design that proved to be very popular.” —Betsy and Richard Ehrenberg

“Mildred, a portrait by John Young Hunter at Woodrow Wilson Fine Art, intrigued us. We were captivated by the dynamics of the painting and the history of the artist. We enjoyed it for many years in Texas, and now it’s in our home in Santa Fe.” —Suzanne and Joel Sugg

“When we first purchased our Christina Chalmers painting, we were in the process of building our home. It felt like a confirmation that our dream was really happening! I kept a photo of this painting on my design tray along with colors, rocks, textures, and anything else that inspired my creativity for the interiors of our home.”—Anita and Gerald Smith

the buzz around town by Sa ma n t ha Schwi r ck

b o o k s In The Royal Road: Artistic Impressions of El Camino Real (Dry Creek Art Press), woodblock artist Leon Loughridge and New Mexico poet John Macker collaboratively delve into the rich history of El Camino Real, the trail that initially served as a trading route for Native Americans and later as a travel and commerce mecca for Spanish conquistadors. The 106-page, hand-bound book features 12 poems by Macker, whose poetry has been nominated for multiple Pushcart Prizes, and 46 original woodcuts by Loughridge, whose artwork is in the collections of multiple museums, including the Denver Art Museum. From July 12 through August 17, Gerald Peters Gallery (gpgallery.com) hosts an exhibit by the same name featuring a series of Loughridge’s painterly prints. An opening night reception (July 12, 5–7 pm) includes a book signing and poetry reading featuring both Loughridge and Macker.

The Soul of Chihuahua the hard ground as quiet to the touch as starlight, if you put your ear to it you can hear red-tail hawk soar, the cosmic maintenance of exodus memories the bones scattered with nimble indifference rearrange themselves back into words the souls of Chihuahua driving north, across ancient bridges, over an eternity of dry river beds, suddenly remember after 400 years of passing by. —John Macker From The Royal Road: Artistic Impressions of El Camino Real.

Music on the Hill

Santa Fe Botanical Garden on Museum Hill

garden party o u t d o o r s In a Grand Opening event running from Friday, July 19, through Sunday, July 21, Santa Fe Botanical Garden (santafebotanicalgarden.org) celebrates the much-anticipated opening of its 13-acre Museum Hill location. The SFBG will be unveiling dedicated gardens in phases over the next two years, with its fruit-lined Orchard Gardens—surrounded by a meadow and dry garden—the first to be completed. Future initiatives include Courtyard Gardens, reflecting different aspects of Santa Fe’s cultural history, and Naturalistic Gardens, incorporating art and landscape architecture. The Grand Opening event kicks off with a gala in the Orchard Gardens on Friday night, followed on Saturday and Sunday with a ribbon-cutting ceremony, garden tours, children’s activities, and more. “We started this garden from the ground up, acquiring the land from the state and the City of Santa Fe,” says Fran Cole, SFBG’s outreach manager. “The new Botanical Garden has been 25 years in the making, and the Grand Opening is the realization of a dream we have been creating and nurturing all this time.”

f e s t i va l s Santa Fe’s summer season is back in a big way, with new players reinventing and refreshing the town’s well-known festival scene. Music on the Hill at St. John’s College (stjohnscollege.edu/events/SF/music.shtml) kicks off its 2013 season on June 12 with a performance by Faith Amour, a classically trained Canadian songstress. The free weekly concerts run through July 24 (with no performance on July 3) and feature artists from a wide range of musical genres. Major sponsors include VERVE Gallery of Photography, Santa Fe Properties, Los Alamos National Bank, and Barraclough & Associates. Lounging and picnicking are strongly encouraged. On July 14, the Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival (sfcmf.org) returns for its 41st season. World-class musicians showcase their talent at local venues such as St. Francis Auditorium, The Lensic Performing Arts Center, and the New Mexico Museum of Art. Jazz lovers can take in the eighth annual New Mexico Jazz Festival (newmexicojazzfestival.org), presented by Outpost Performance Space, The Lensic, and the Santa Fe Jazz Foundation, July 12–27. Musicians on board include Grammy Award winner Eddie Palmieri, Catherine Russell, the Yellowjackets, Arlen Asher, and others. Although it lasts only one weekend, the impact of the International Folk Art Market (folkartmarket.org) on Museum Hill is felt long after the fact. Now in its 10th year, the market, which runs July 12–14, is the largest event of its kind in the world, showcasing the work of 190 artists from 60 countries. Items on display (and for sale) include jewelry, ceramics, beadwork, basketry, textiles, and more. In the past, 90 percent of the market’s $16 million in sales has gone home with the artists. Another impressive weekend-long affair, Spanish Market (spanishcolonialblog.org), takes place on Santa Fe’s historic Plaza July 26–28. The largest juried Spanish Market in the country, it’s also the longest-running event of the group, now entering its 62nd year.

cool cause F O O D It’s officially summer—the season for alfresco dining and heat-busting refreshment. During this year’s warm-weather months, indulge with a conscience at Frogurt Self-Serve Frozen Yogurt (frogurt-nm.com), where owners David and Pattie Christianson donate a portion of their profits to more than 20 organizations near and far, from an animal shelter in Santa Fe to an orphanage in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. The self-serve spot offers healthy alternatives to ice cream (along with 60-plus toppings), plus ice-blended coffee drinks, espresso beverages, and fruit-tea smoothies. The Christiansons pride themselves on making their Rodeo Road outpost a community-gathering place of sorts. “We love the joy and kindness that our store shares with everyone,” they say.

FOOD Though seemingly impossible, downtown institution Cafe Pasqual’s just got even tastier. Chef Katharine Kagel—who awes diners with her delicious (and organic) Southwest-inspired dishes— recently paired with Askinosie Chocolate to make the fifth bar in Askinosie’s CollaBARation line, on sale at the restaurant. Shawn Askinosie, founder and chocolate maker at his eponymous Missouri-based company, travels far and wide (Ecuador, Honduras, the Philippines, Tanzania) to source ingredients for his small-batch business, which employs around 15 people. His family has been traveling to Santa Fe and enjoying Kagel’s food for more than 25 years, so the partnership seemed natural to him. “The chocolate bar is the result of two years of working together,” Askinosie says. “We traveled back and forth and tasted endless combinations of ingredients to find the perfect balance of flavors that complement each other with their complexity, just like the menu Katharine is famous for.” The CollaBARation bar mixes pistachios, ancho chile, and Maldon salt flakes with dark goat’s-milk chocolate from the Philippines. Kagel describes it as “a fiesta in the mouth”—a combination of sweet and salty notes with a pleasant heat.

SITE to be seen Assistant Curator Janet Dees talks about SITE Santa Fe’s new series, new spaces, and new directions by Samantha Schwirck

Since moving from the East Coast in 2008 to take on a fellowship position at SITE Santa Fe, Assistant Curator Janet Dees has seen the exhibition space grow in scope and size. Here, she talks about SITE’s mission of championing groundbreaking contemporary art and what viewers can look forward to in the future. In a town packed with galleries and museums, what’s special about SITE Santa Fe and the work it shows? SITE Santa Fe doesn’t have a collection, which means that for Janet Dees each exhibition we work directly with contemporary artists to show their work in fresh and exciting ways. In 2007, SITE completed a fabrication workshop that allows artists to create new works on our premises. This flexibility allows us to support artists in the development of ambitious projects that they may not be able to realize [otherwise]. What role does SITE fulfill for Santa Feans? I think SITE contributes to Santa Fe’s wonderfully rich and diverse art community by presenting exhibitions and programs that highlight innovation and experimentation and foster dialogue about international contemporary art locally, nationally, and internationally. In 2011, [SITE’s Phillips Director and Chief Curator] Irene Hofmann launched SPREAD, which provides grants directly to New Mexico–based artists from funds raised during a community dinner.

What about going forward? Where do you see SITE heading? In May, we announced our new biennial series SITELines, which focuses on new perspectives in contemporary art from the Americas. There will be exhibitions in 2014, 2016, and 2018 as well as ongoing related programming. In June, we’re launching SITELab, an exhibition series that will feature focused shows presented in a newly configured, approximately 600-square-foot gallery space in the front of our building. SITELab will allow us to be more immediately responsive to new artistic developments and showcase new directions in the work of established and emerging artists. On July 13 you’re opening a show by Enrique Martinez Celaya called The Pearl. What drew you to his work? Irene Hofmann curated the exhibition. She became acquainted with Celaya’s work when she was a curator at the Orange County Museum of Art in California. We were intrigued by Celaya’s proposal to stage an exhibition that would activate all of SITE’s 15,000 square feet of gallery space by creating a single narrative that unfolds as you move through the building. The Pearl will consist of several largeand small-scale paintings, sculpture, and videos that produce an immersive environment that’s

meant to be a metaphor for a personal journey of emotional and psychological reflection. Are there any specific artists SITE’s keeping an eye on for future exhibitions? As part of our research for SITELines, we’ve been interested in fostering connections with artists and institutions from Nunavut [in Canada] to Tierra del Fuego. In particular, we’ve been looking at artists who explore trans-American ideas in their work, like educator and performance artist Pablo Helguera. What about you? Are there any artists you’re personally interested in? Right now I’m really engaged with the work of Leonardo Drew, Sarah Oppenheimer, and Marie Watt. I’m curating an exhibition of their works called Unsuspected Possibilities, which is supported by a grant from the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation and will be presented at SITE in the summer of 2015. Drew, Oppenheimer, and Watt will work collaboratively to create new site-specific works. Oppenheimer grew up in Santa Fe, and Watt is a graduate of the Institute of American Indian Arts. It’s wonderful to work with internationally active artists who have Santa Fe roots.

kate russell

2015 will mark SITE’s 20th anniversary. How has the museum grown or changed over the last two decades? SITE opened in 1995 in order to present an international biennial of contemporary art and then immediately developed a platform of year-round exhibitions and public programming. From my perspective, SITE has stayed in touch with its founding ideals over the years while consistently expanding its commitment to artistic and curatorial innovation.

what’s old is new Santa Fe’s antiques market is bursting with rare treasures by Zé li e Pollon photo graph s by Ga briella Ma r ks

The Santa Fe Trail was one of the country’s great trading routes for much of the 19th century, linking New Mexico’s capital city with Franklin, Missouri. After Mexico gained its independence from Spain in 1821, the trail created a powerful trade with Mexico that continues to this day. With Santa Fe remaining a crossroads city, it’s no surprise that it’s home to a rich antiques scene. Stephen’s: A Consignment Gallery (stephensconsignments.com, 505-471-0802) sells high-end furniture, jewelry, and other pieces that range from antiquities—Egyptian, preColumbian, and Mesopotamian—to midcentury modern. Assembled by partners Stephen Etre and Glen Smith over the last 30 years, the collection also includes luxury items like Georg Jensen and Tiffany flatware, Tiffany lamps, and Cartier watches. “People [move to Santa Fe] and their lifestyle changes,” Etre notes. “They need to know that there’s a store that can handle [selling] their luxury items.” Stephen’s also runs two not-to-be-missed annual sales, one on Mother’s Day weekend and one in October. The 9,000-square-foot Antique Warehouse (antiquewarehousesantafe.com, 505-984-1159) specializes in Mexican doors and ranch furniture, including indigenous wooden benches, tables, and smaller accessories as well as Spanish Colonial antiques. The beautiful, primarily handcrafted wooden pieces range in style from simple to elaborate, and items can be used either indoors or out. Owners Betty Kaye and Michele Graveline have been traveling to Mexico for the past 18 years to select their furniture pieces, which they then restore and refinish. For a trip further south of the border, head to House of Ancestors (houseofancestorsantiques.com, 505-490-2653), which specializes in Guatemalan imports and features items like period furniture, ceramic containers, and religious iconography.

Jr. and Theresa Bohn opened the store in 2011. Inspired by his parents’ successful antiques business in Ohio, Godman began trading early and ran his own stores in New York for years. Bohn, who has a background in fashion and theater, is a longtime collector of European antiques. “I tried to put the store together like an old antique shop, like the kind of store I remember from when I was a kid,” Godman says. Each of the three owners of Early Street Antiques (505-4280082) has a different area of expertise. “One is a rug expert, another is wonderful in old WPA and mission furniture, and I do jewelry and ’40s and ’50s kitsch,” says Urszula Cepiel. Opened just two years ago, Early Street Antiques has developed a strong local following, including members of the movie industry seeking sets and props. The store’s selection changes weekly, so you never know what surprises might greet you. Opened in 2002 and expanded in 2008, the 6,000-square-foot Recollections (recollectionssantafe.com, 505-988-4775), housed in a striking redbrick building on Cerrillos Road, specializes in upscale furniture consignment and sells goods that range from garden accessories to high-end candles. Newcomer Antiques + Interiors on Grant (505-983-0075) is a collaborative effort to provide sales space to a number of antiques dealers. Opened last May and run by four partners, the store currently hosts 14 dealers at the downtown Hovey House location. Some dealers have entire rooms filled with goods; others may only need shelf space. But the combined knowledge of the group, which includes members who ran successful antiques stores before the economic downturn, allows for a great selection.

trekking the local trails s c e n ic h i k ing r oute s r ight in you r backya rd by St e ve n Hora k

From quick out-and-back jaunts within the city limits to multiday mountain treks, Santa Fe is blessed like few cities with an abundance of easily accessible scenic hikes. Trails that beckon with the sight of soaring raptors, surging rivers, rarified summits, and abandoned ghost towns are all tantalizingly close at hand. While it could take years to become intimate with Santa Fe’s backcountry, sampling just a bit of what’s out there is enough to plant the seed. The greatest concentration of trails can be found along Hyde Park Road, which begins its 15-mile ascent to the Santa Fe Ski Area at Artist Road. A short way beyond mile marker 6 is the trailhead for the Chamisa Trail (also known as Trail 183), an ideal introduction to hiking in the Santa Fe National Forest. The trail is lined with conifers native to the forest, such as white pine and Douglas fir, as it climbs, gradually, for 1.5 miles before cresting at a junction. Here the track intersects with the drainage spur below to the left; taking this back to the parking area makes for a leisurely loop. The Chamisa Trail itself continues downhill for about another mile, passing stands of aspens along the way before ending at the Winsor Trail, which leads west to Tesuque and northeast to the ski area. The dramatic hike to the top of Sun Mountain, a solitary peak rising abruptly off the Old Santa Fe Trail, feels very much like a secret slowly getting out. Officially created last year, the two-mile round-trip trail sets off from a small roadside parking area 2.2 miles southeast of Paseo de Peralta. An initial gentle stroll through pleasantly shaded woods belies a steep 800-foot climb soon to come. After a quarter of a mile, the trail emerges before Sun Mountain’s western flank,

Diablo Canyon

where a series of switchbacks offers glimpses of endemic cacti— yucca, cholla, and prickly pear—that thrive on its exposed slopes. From the top, breathtaking panoramas take in the surprisingly orderly grid of Santa Fe far below and an arc of jagged Sangre de Cristo summits to the east. Few landscapes evoke the stark beauty of the Southwest like Diablo Canyon, a 40-minute drive northwest of the Plaza. Sheer basalt walls, a mecca for climbers, rise with an almost impossible verticality at the canyon’s mouth, concealing a broad arroyo that lies beyond. What little shade there is largely ends at the entrance; from here it’s a three-mile flat hike across the sandy bed to a sight as jarring and enthralling as the walls themselves: the cool waters of the Rio Grande. To reach the trailhead, take NM 599 and exit onto Camino La Tierra. Follow the signs for Camino La Tierra until you reach Old Buckman Road, just less than five miles on the right. After turning onto Old Buckman Road (a fairly firm dirt road), go slightly more than 12 miles to the turnoff on the left to the Diablo Canyon parking area. To fully enjoy your time on the trails, make sure you come prepared. Santa Fe’s elevation, coupled with its surfeit of sunny days, means potential exposure to harmful UV rays, and the debilitating effects of sunburn should not be taken lightly. Apply a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 before heading outside, and wear a brimmed hat and light layers. Bring plenty of water–consider a hydration pack or bladder–and take time en route to stay hydrated. Don’t wait until you feel thirsty to drink; by that point you’ve waited too long. A couple of well-equipped local shops offer all the gear you’ll need to hit the trails in comfort. Santa Fe Mountain Sports (santafemountainsports.com, 505-988-3337) specializes in skiing, snowboarding, and mountain biking but it also offers gear for hikers, including hydration packs, footwear, and sunglasses. Alpine Sports (alpinesports-santafe.com, 505-983-5155) stocks a large selection of hiking boots, approach shoes, trekking poles, and lightweight summer apparel.

Eva Carter, Taos, oil on canvas, 66 x 60"

Eva Carter

Bruce Mitchell, She Works Hard for the Money, oil on linen, 20 x 20"

After a childhood spent reveling in the beauty of rural Tennessee, where she discovered her love of art, Eva Carter spent summers painting in New Mexico, lured to the Southwest by its stark desert landscape. For the last 30 years, she’s lived and worked in Charleston, South Carolina, where her studio overlooks the city’s Intracoastal Waterway. Her abstract works, expressionistic in tone, revisit the feelings certain landscapes evoked in her at the time. “For me,” Carter says, “painting is a state of being rather than a state of mind. When I get into that trancelike process, the oils just flow.” From July 2 to July 16, Carter’s work can be seen in a solo exhibition, Time-Lapse, at Pippin Contemporary Fine Art Gallery.—Gail Snyder Pippin Contemporary Fine Art Gallery, pippincontemporary.com

Bruce Mitchell Bruce Mitchell’s realist urban landscape paintings, with their shiny auto bodies and spacious skies, chronicle our cultural fascination with mobility and expansion. “You could say I’m painting poems about what it’s like to be an American man in the early 21st century,” he says. “A given work may be an essay on desire or loneliness or societal norms, or a vignette based on a mood or personal experience, manifested as a physical object.” Mitchell also works in abstraction, exploring “ambiguity and play” through the relationships of colorful, almost-recognizable forms.—Eve Tolpa Bill Hester Fine Art, billhesterfineart.com

june/july 2013

“To be an artist is to seek truth,” says David Bradley, a Chippewa painter who for more than 30 years has been creating narrative folk-style works that re-create iconic images (American Gothic and The Last Supper, to name two) from a crosscultural viewpoint. The result? Witty, satirical pieces that raise serious questions about race, identity, and cultural appropriation. A graduate of the Institute of American Indian Arts (IAIA) and the College of Santa Fe, Bradley’s paintings are shown in New York’s Whitney Museum of American Art, the Denver Art Museum, and the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, Massachusetts, among other institutions.—ET Blue Rain Gallery, blueraingallery.com

Timothy Hearsum Timothy Hearsum’s rhythmic panoramic photographs almost seem to bend the perception of viewers, leaving them wondering how they got from one end of a scene to another. “I work with the expansive Southwestern landscape and like to balance that by working with the figure,” he says. “The intimacy of the landscape is no different to me than the intimacy of the human form.” In addition to being shown at Bill Hester Fine Art in Santa Fe, Hearsum’s work can be found at the Museums of Modern Art in both New York and San Francisco and the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C., among other collections.—ET Bill Hester Fine Art, billhesterfineart.com Timothy Hearsum, Surface Tension #1 (Male Agave), archival pigment print on canvas, 67 x 54" Ernst Gruler, Command Central, wood laminate, desk height 36", desk width 56"

Ernst Gruler Using plywood construction and a unique fabrication process, Ernst Gruler bends wood laminates to craft imaginative contemporary furniture. The look of earthy metal is achieved by layering the surface of each piece with water-based metallic paint and then rubbing and sealing it with a polyacrylic finish, making it durable and easy to clean. Gruler’s abstract paintings are finished with the same technique and complement his furniture. —Robyn Harrison GVG Contemporary, gvgcontemporary.com

Mark Yearwood

Michael Madzo, The Shape of Forgotten Desire, acrylic on paper sewn with cotton threads, 52 x 36"

During his more than 25 years working in graphic design, Mark Yearwood honed his facility with color, contrast, compositional balance, and visual impact—but almost always to communicate someone else’s intent. So when the Oklahoma-based artist began expressing his own artistic vision, he quickly discovered the excitement and deep satisfaction of intuitively following the artistic process. Yearwood’s award-winning abstract paintings combine a strong sense of structural balance with striking color, textural interest, and the graceful, lyrical qualities of lines. He enjoys the play between his creative expression and the viewer’s experience of his work. “Art is ultimately about that human connection,” he says.—Gussie Fauntleroy InArt Santa Fe, inartsantafe.com Mark Yearwood, Rhythm of Life, acrylic on canvas, 40 x 40" june/july 2013

Gustavo Victor Goler, Saint Pelagia, Patron Saint of Dancers, carved wood, gesso, watercolor, and natural pigments, 17 x 11 x 6"

Gustavo Victor Goler Taos-based sculptor Gustavo Victor Goler takes a multifaceted interest in Hispanic arts. In addition to carving bultos and retablos, he also works in conservation and restoration. A full-time sculptor since 1988, Goler is “dedicated to devotional artwork,” he says, though in recent years he’s been putting a twist on traditional imagery, focusing on less conventional depictions of saints (case in point: his carving of St. Christopher riding a surfboard). “I like to bring out the human aspect behind the saints,” he says. “That’s my way of connecting them to a broader audience.”—ET Blue Rain Gallery, blueraingallery.com

Francisco Cienfuegos The son of a poor farmer in Peru, as a child Francisco Cienfuegos worked in the fields by day and painted by candlelight at night. Although he studied at the Ignacio Merino School of Fine Arts in Piura and at Lima’s Museum of Italian Art, Cienfuegos is primarily self-taught. “Art is in my blood,” he says. His exquisite still-life oil paintings demonstrate an extraordinary level of precision and skill that has earned him an international following.—GF Reflection Gallery, reflectiongallery.com

Barbara Meikle New Mexico native Barbara Meikle has been an artist since childhood, and her education and career have taken her to Denver, Chicago, New York, and Cambridge, England. Since returning to her home state in 1990, Meikle has been creating paintings and sculptures that vividly depict the character of the high desert and its equine inhabitants. “Having spent so much time studying their confirmation and expression,” Meikle says, “it’s easy for me to move beyond structure to play with the grace, movement, and personality of the animals I am painting.”—ET Barbara Meikle Fine Art, horseart.us

John Sisko, The Grand Sow, bronze, 40 x 65 x 20"

John Sisko Seattle sculptor John Sisko studied in the art departments of three universities before becoming a philosophy major and earning his degree from the University of Washington. Perhaps as a result of this channel change, Sisko has been able to, as he says, permeate his work with “subtext and meaning that carries viewers as far as they wish to go beyond the literal.” Sisko’s in-demand bronze animals, busts, torsos, reliefs, and “celestial and terrestrial figures” are revered for their depth and intelligence.—CW Greenberg Fine Art, greenbergfineart.com

Vladimir Kush Russian-born painter and sculptor Vladimir Kush certainly speaks the language of surrealism, but the breaks in assumed reality he suggests are dimensional transcendences for a new, perhaps more positive era. Kush, whose influences include Dali and Bosch, prefers the term “metaphorical realism” to describe his work. His paintings are portals into another world, and his lighthearted, ethereal dreamscapes are imbibed with fantasy.—Martha Tuttle Chalk Farm Gallery, chalkfarmgallery.com

Maude Andrade Mixed-media painter Maude Andrade lives in Albuquerque, where she’s been featured in a number of solo shows since she began painting full-time in 2005. The Cosmic Lobster Trap works in her Between Now series are musings about the concept of time—what it looks like when it’s wide and expansive rather than linear. The collages in graphite touch on notions of “fluid boundaries separating environments, thoughts, or concepts,” Andrade says, noting that “cosmic lobster trap is geek slang for black holes.”—CW Patina Gallery, patina-gallery.com

Chris Turri “I am completely inspired by the New Mexico ‘experience’—the culture, the vistas, the light, and the shadows are so expansive and colorful,” says Chris Turri. “Somehow, that all comes into perspective for me when I work with metal.” Turri’s metalworks, often incorporating petroglyphs and other native imagery, are usually built from an image in his mind. “The piece creates itself as I go,” he says. —CW Waxlander Art Gallery & Sculpture Garden waxlander.com

Roberto Diago, El mar es mi frontera, mixed media on wood, 32 x 47"

Roberto Diago Cuban artist Roberto Diago’s work truly grows out of the raw material it’s made from, whether cardboard or burnt sticks. His use of text and imagery has invited comparisons to Basquiat, whom Diago cites as an influence. But his prime inspiration has always been the poverty faced by Cubans in the early 1990s. “We didn’t have the materials you need to paint like we were taught in school, so we had to adapt our art to what we could find,” Diago has said. “Now I can afford to buy good paper and oil paints, but that no longer interests me. The symbolic weight of my materials has become a characteristic of my work.”—CW Zane Bennett Contemporary Art, zanebennettgallery.com

Dwight Bennett, Electric Rose, Australian rosewood and silver, 18 x 10 x 10"

Dwight Bennett In third grade, Dwight Bennett got into trouble for using his fingernails to carve tiny sculptures out of his crayons. Years later, in 1981, he had an epiphany while working on his art one night. “I was turning an ironwood vessel on my lathe when I found a shiny, silver-like bullet wedged into the natural fissures of the wood,” he says. “It looked wonderful.” That experience was the impetus for his “Silver Bullet” technique, in which silver threads are incorporated into elegant, delicately carved pieces of aged dried wood— “illuminating Mother Nature’s birthmarks,” Bennett says.—GS Wiford Gallery, wifordgallery.com

The internationally exhibited German-born artist has had a home near Santa Fe with her husband, the actor and director Robert Redford, for the past 20 years. There, during summer rains, she sets out sheets of dry, handmade paper from India to which she has applied concentrated watercolor pigment. “Then I let raindrops create the art,” she says.

When sculptor Star York moved from the Washington, D.C., area to New Mexico in 1985, the cultures, landscape, and wildlife of the Southwest “touched off an explosion of creativity,” as she puts it, that has continued ever since. York’s agile versatility in bronze is reflected in editions featuring equine, wildlife, Western, Native American, ancestral (Ice Age mares), and spiritual themes. Whether her subject is human or animal, her goal of animating each figure with character is accomplished through expressive features, distinctive gestures, and graceful lines. “If we’re going to do something worthy of putting into a permanent medium,” she says, “we need to give it heart.”—GF Manitou Galleries, manitougalleries.com 48

Pedro Fraile, Pueblo de Barcelona, oil on canvas, 36 x 48"

Pedro Fraile Pedro Fraile was born and raised in rural Spain, where his father worked on the estate of Valencian painter Manuel Benedito Vives. Fraile began to experiment with drawing and painting at age 5, and his father moved their family to Madrid so Fraile could formally study art. Years later, after enrolling in the Superior School of Fine Arts and training with Spanish painter Manuel Benedito, Fraile had his first solo exhibitions in Madrid, Barbizon, and Paris.

Laird Hovland Laird Hovland’s contemporary cast-bronze and welded-steel sculptures begin as several simple geometric pieces. When the artist joins all the elements, the result is one large-scale, complex structure. Hovland describes his works as organic wholes that represent his inspiration—the sacred geometry and spirituality of the Far East where he was born combined with contemporary Western influences that materialized during his youth in Montana and continue to inspire him today in Santa Fe. “My intention is to bring the artist and viewer into a deeper [connection] with the creative force of the universe by imitating its essential physical manifestations,” Hovland says.—SS The William & Joseph Gallery, thewilliamandjosephgallery.com

Margarete Bagshaw, Hatshepsut, The Lady Pharaoh, oil on linen, 60 x 48"

Margarete Bagshaw The third in a family dynasty of strong, independent, Native American female painters, Margarete Bagshaw honors other powerful women in her latest body of work—including Hatshepsut, believed to be ancient Egypt’s only female pharaoh. Bagshaw’s richly hued, compositionally complex abstract painting has always incorporated motifs from her Santa Clara Pueblo heritage, yet she is equally inspired by Cubism, colors of the Caribbean, her husband’s ancestral Celtic roots, and her own spiritual search. “Finding out who I am is really why I paint,” she says. Bagshaw’s art is at Golden Dawn Gallery in Santa Fe, alongside her memoirs and books about her mother, Helen Hardin (1943–1984), and grandmother, Pablita Velarde (1918–2006).—GF Golden Dawn Gallery, goldendawngallery.com

R David Marks, Notre Dame, Paris, archival pigment print, 15 x 21"

R David Marks Having begun his career as a Detroitbased commercial photographer working with clients like Pontiac, GMC, and Absolut Vodka, R David Marks eventually moved to Santa Fe and became captivated by Southwestern scenery and culture. Here, in a setting very different from the one he grew up in in western Kentucky, he began to explore fine art photography, creating stunning landscapes and poignant portraits that draw inspiration from the likes of Ansel Adams and Edward Weston.—SS R David Marks Gallery, rdavidmarks.com

Peter Krusko Peter Krusko, a graduate of the Pratt Institute and a former publicschool art teacher, finds inspiration in the Southwestern landscape and its air of mystery. “Rather than imitating life,” he says, “my paintings try to see beneath its surface.” Indeed, Krusko’s watercolors are at once realistic and sublime, with the artist bringing otherworldliness to his moody depictions of mountain peaks, rivers, and cloud-filled skies. “The ideas contained in my pictures are the mysteries, which are the essence of existence,” Krusko says. “The pictures then become my diary, my self portrait of a quest for understanding.”—SS Gallery 822, gallery822.com Peter Krusko, Yellow Earth, watercolor on paper, 22 x 30"

Iren Schio Though she was born, raised, and educated in Switzerland, Iren Schio is steeped in the culture of Northern New Mexico, where she’s lived for more than 30 years. Her colorful collages, with their brilliantly colored geometric shapes, angles, and curves, echo the feel of the landscape. The artist, who takes obvious pleasure in her art and her surroundings, works in mixed media, often incorporating found objects into her pieces.—RH Martha Keats Gallery, marthakeatsgallery.com

Thomas W. Abbott, Pigtails, watercolor on paper, 20 x 14"

THomas W. Abbott A self-taught watercolorist, Thomas W. Abbott first made his mark on the art world with realistic paintings of Americana—old barns, abandoned houses, spotted calves. His precise, nearly photographic style is evident in details like individual strands of hair in his recent Pigtails. Abbott says he hadn’t considered painting as a way to make a living until, at age 19, he saw an exhibit by Stephen Scott Young. “I never got over it,” he says. “He blew my mind.” Abbott then practiced his art by copying Young and Andrew Wyeth, “stealing as much from the masters” as he could, he notes, to learn the fundamentals.—RH Kristin Johnson Fine Art, kjfagallery.com Carol Hagan, Blue Feather, oil on linen, 36 x 48"

Carol Hagan Self-taught artist Carol Hagan developed a love for the West when her family moved to Montana at age 7, but she didn’t begin painting until after her son was born in 1987. Today her vibrant, textural works highlight the scenery of the region, with an emphasis on animals like bears, foxes, and owls. “I find great joy in taking research and reference photos out in the field of the subjects that I love to paint,” Hagan says. “I need that personal connection in order to convey that touch of spirit onto the canvas.”—SS Legends Santa Fe, legendssantafe.com

Nick Hermes Nick Hermes’s art is a hoot. Pass by one of his paintings and you’ll find yourself circling back to take a closer look. Working in a pop surrealist style, Hermes creates images that seem familiar but on closer examination reveal a twist of the bizarre. In They Get Away with It, for example, two women appear to be carrying a carpet across a city street but a single shoe falling from their bundle hints at a more sinister act. Hermes works in oil and mixed media, painting murals and portraits in addition to his pop surrealist pieces. “[My] style is usually figurative painting, not abstract,” he says. “It’s sometimes cartoony, sometimes highly technical, and the subject matter ranges from cerebral to humorous to terrifying.”—RH Joe Wade Fine Art, joewadefineart.com Nick Hermes, Get Off My Lawn, oil on canvas, 24 x 36"

Jim Zwadlo, Pedestrians 280, mixed media on canvas, 28 x 62"

Painter Jim Zwadlo creates his aerial-view, composite-image streetscapes with the help of photography. “My rule about taking photos of people in the street is that my perch, usually about 10 to 15 feet above the street, must be accessible to anyone,” he says. “So I find bridges or balconies outside malls and spend days taking thousands of photos to make sure some of them have the kind of balance/off-balance quality of each person’s way of walking.” Zwadlo cites New York School abstraction and minimalism among the influences for his acrylic-on-canvas Pedestrian pieces.—ET Beals & Abbate Fine Art, bealsandabbate.com

Karen Kitchel For Karen Kitchel, nature isn’t something external to be sought out. There is as much nature in ourselves, “under our fingernails,” as we find in a national park. Kitchel offers an encompassing and honest alternative to the traditional imagery presented in American landscape painting. “Rather than making romanticized, poetic interpretations of ‘nature,’” she says, “I intensify the literal details and specific features of the physical reality in front of me.”—MT Gerald Peters Gallery, gpgallery.com

JACOBO DE LA SERNA As a child, Jacobo de la Serna collected clay from evaporating puddles to make tiny pinch pots.

A frequent award winner in Santa Fe’s annual Spanish Market, de la Serna shows his works in collections around the country, including the Albuquerque Museum and the Denver Art Museum, and he’s had solo exhibitions at the Michael McCormick Gallery in Taos and the Grounds for Sculpture museum in Hamilton, New Jersey.—MT De La Serna Fine Arts Studio & Gallery, delasernafinearts.com

I was attracted by the brighter colors, softness, and spontaneity of their paintings.”—RH Michael Henington Fine Art Gallery, heningtonfineart.com 56

His painting Sometimes I Let Myself Out—a reflection on the atrocities citizens of Juarez (his birth city) endure on a daily basis—is a riotous, scribbled mass of sharp-toothed monsters and disembodied beings with a tortured-looking face staring out from underneath it all.

After moving to Taos, he initially found success as a landscape painter, but it was his private paintings of his Native American friends that held the most meaning for him.

Robert Daughters There’s a particular moment at twilight, as sunset splashes the sky with gold, the clouds change to delicate violet, dark shadows lengthen, red earth becomes brilliant orange, and the flame-yellow flowers of a chamisa bush magically turn an eerie, mysteriously incandescent blue. With characteristically short, bold brush strokes and dark outlines, Robert Daughters has effortlessly captured that moment, and so many others, throughout his long career as a master of Southwestern landscapes. Daughters first visited Taos on his honeymoon. Smitten, he and his wife moved there in 1972, and he became cofounder of a band of artists, The Taos Six. Daughters’s work is featured in numerous publications and is represented in collections of foundations, banks, and museums in addition to private collections.—GS Meyer Gallery, meyergalleries.com

The nakedly intimate collection reveals evocative scenes from the Mississippi Delta—river baptisms, tent revivals, slow dancing at a juke joint—where, Mauskopf says, “mystery hangs in the air.” From June 28 through August 31, works from Mauskopf’s 30-year career will be on view in a group show at VERVE Gallery of Photography.—GS VERVE Gallery, vervegallery.com

A RT Sa n t a Fe g e a rs up f or it s 13t h se a s on by Sa ma nt h a Sch w i rck

ART Santa Fe, which celebrates its 13th season this year, is one of the city’s most anticipated summertime events. Held June 11–14 at the Santa Fe Community Convention Center, the festival combines lectures and cutting-edge installations with displays by artists, galleries, and art dealers from around the world. In the past, ART Santa Fe has attracted international artists like Regine Schumann and Peter Weber and exhibitors like Portland, Oregon’s Bullseye Gallery, which offered demonstrations on their highly regarded kiln-formed glass processes. This year, in an exhibition called How Things Are Made, fairgoers can enjoy an etching and monotype demonstration by Oehme Graphics (Steamboat Springs, Colorado) and papermaking workshops by Korean artists from Park Fine Art in Albuquerque. The keynote speaker for this year’s fair is Robert Wittman, a former FBI special agent who was instrumental in establishing the Bureau’s Art Crime Team (ACT). During Wittman’s decades-long career at the FBI, he recovered more than $300 million in stolen art and cultural property, including works by Rembrandt and Norman Rockwell and one of the 14 original copies of the Bill of Rights (stolen by a Union soldier in 1865). “We’re still riding high from last year’s success,” says Charlotte Jackson, the fair’s director. But, she adds, “ART Santa Fe also has some new tricks up its sleeve.” This summer, the festival hosts Expect the Unexpected, a cocktail party cosponsored by the magazine Art in America, and counts SITE Santa Fe and the Santa Fe International Folk Art Market among its cultural partners.

flashing forward Cira Crowell creates lumenographic imagery by Eve Tolpa

These days, it’s not unusual for art to be created using physical materials—paint, canvas, metal—and then converted into a digital image. For Cira Crowell, this process is reversed: Most of her work begins its life in a computer and ultimately becomes tangible. “The images come into my mind as a flash of light,” she says of the mysterious glyphs that populate her pieces. She takes what she calls an inner-mind photograph and, using Adobe Photoshop, precisely renders her fractal-like forms. “They have all meaning and no meaning,” she says. “To me it’s just energy off the pen tip.” Crowell initially printed her drawings but found that the process didn’t capture the intended effect of light, so she spent months in collaboration with her husband and creative partner, Chas Curtis (who has a background in electrical engineering and physics), devising a process that would convey her vision. The result was lumenography, which involves projecting the 62

digital images and then photographing the projections. In contrast to the sharp blacks and whites that result from ink on paper, lumenography produces a soft spectrum of grays, created by the variation in light as it passes through the lens. “There’s a wonderful precedent in the Light and Space school,” says Crowell of her work, citing the artistic movement that originated in the 1960s in Southern California, where she spends half of each year. “[Those artists] were exploring light in space, and what I’m exploring is space in light.” The images, made to be displayed in ambient light, are presented in a variety of media “to reach out and speak different people’s languages,” Crowell says. They’re printed on paper or aluminum plates, or—because the images come into Crowell’s mind with a sense of motion—are animated. Whatever their medium, however, the images “have an openness toward interpretation,” and Crowell uses the term “preverbal” to describe the way in which she receives them. Her creative process

springs from accessing the “subtle consciousness,” which she likens to Freud and Jung’s ideas of the subconscious but with a difference: From her point of view, that level of perception is not blocked from our awareness, and, she says, “you can always go deeper.” Crowell’s art represents a breaking away from established symbols—whether crucifixes or Brillo boxes—and is an invitation for viewers to do the same. “If you can shed those from your conscious mind,” she asks, “what else is there to see?” For more information, visit ciracrowell.com.

Santa Fe style One of the first things you notice about Downtown Santa Fe—whose heart and soul is the 400-year-old Plaza—is that it looks like no other place in the country. In 1912, the year New Mexico gained statehood, locals organized an effort to honor the history and preserve the uniqueness of this centuries-old capital city. This period of revival, which also aimed to draw tourists to town, saw the return of Pueblo-Spanish- and Territorial-style architecture—styles that still dominate the roughly two-square-mile area today. When the Spanish arrived in New Mexico in the late 16th century, they were inspired by the homes Native Americans were living in. The multistory dwellings, which the Spanish called pueblos (meaning “villages”), were a series of rooms built around a central plaza. The walls were made of stone, wood, and puddled adobe, and the flat roofs were supported by wooden vigas and embellished with latillas. The Spanish eventually adapted the building style to suit their own needs and preferences, using adobe to construct one- or two-room homes and adding few doors or windows in order to keep out the cold in the winter and the heat in the summer. Over the centuries the Spanish and Native American architectural traditions blended to create the iconic look that was revived in the early 20th century. Territorial-style architecture dates from the mid-19th century and features Greek-revival trim added to doors and windows, coping on adobe walls, and square instead of round columns. Be sure to look for these distinct types of architecture when you’re stolling on and around Downtown’s Plaza.

publisher’s note




“Whenever I walk around Downtown, my love for this amazing city is refueled, particularly in the summer when musical acts are performing at the Bandstand. Seeing the freedom of people dancing, playing Frisbee, and chatting, all beneath a sky that is so blue it takes your breath away, I find myself once again appreciating how fortunate I am to live here.”—Aleta Pippin, owner, Pippin Contemporary “Downtown Santa Fe to me really is the Plaza. That’s where I remember walking down the street holding my grandma’s hand. It’s where during Fiesta my girlfriends and I would make a thousand laps flirting with the boys and eating green-chile cheeseburgers. It’s now where my husband and I go dancing on beautiful warm summer nights. Downtown Santa Fe is a piece of my heart.”—Cynthia Delgado, marketing director, Santa Fe Convention & Visitors Bureau


Downtown Santa Fe continues to be the hub of this historic city. While significant growth has occurred in various parts of town and captivating new neighborhoods are constantly evolving, the heart and soul of Santa Fe remains the shops, galleries, museums, restaurants, and hotels within the Paseo de Peralta loop. The Santa Fean’s offices are downtown, in the Lensic Performing Arts Center, so we feel the pace of the city as visitors and locals walk up and down San Francisco Street, just below our windows. I often walk across the Plaza early in the morning, before the day’s activity begins. I find this experience to be so special, as I imagine the Native American families, farmers, writers, business people, soldiers, and warriors who have lived and worked here over the centuries, and I think about how those lives crossed history on this sacred plot of land. Keep in mind that we’re talking about more than 400 years’ worth of history, which has witnessed everything from trading, protesting, festivals, markets, car shows, and more. When our webcam of the Plaza went live on our website, SantaFean.com, our online readership shot up 150 percent. In Santa Fe that could only have happened here, because we locals appreciate the significance of this special area. While many cities in the country have watched their downtown areas lose their vitality over the years, Santa Fe’s downtown is flourishing with new galleries and restaurants, world-class hotels, shops for every interest, and entertaining nightlife. I promise you won’t ever be bored while strolling around here, and great food and drink are always nearby. Downtown Santa Fe truly has it all, so let your eyes take in the arts and crafts, museum exhibitions, and colorful personalities that populate the neighborhood. But at the end of the day or early in the morning, join me on the Plaza when things are quiet. Reflect on the history that’s been made here and on the lives that have been affected by that history—and be sure to remember that your life is now one of those connected to this special place.

“After hundreds of years, Santa Fe’s Plaza is still the artistic, mercantile, entertainment, and dining nexus of this vibrant and richly evocative haven for culture, originality, and spirituality. Generations have traveled here for the exotic and the exceptional, and they are still finding Santa Fe to be an adventure.”  —Robert M. Pettus, owner, Things Finer

santa fean downtown 2013


art and soul Santa Fe’s historic center is home to a thriving art scene Downtown Santa Fe is an art lover’s dream. The city, the third-largest art market in the country, has been luring and inspiring artistic types for centuries with its idyllic climate and stunningly beautiful scenery—and there’s a vast and diverse assortment of works on display to prove it. Downtown’s historic, walkable streets north, south, east, and west of the 400-year-old Plaza are lined with galleries selling everything from high-end paintings and black-and-white photographs to largescale installations and religious iconography. So whether you’re a serious collector or a first-time buyer, you won’t walk away empty-handed while traipsing around Downtown. San Francisco Street lines the southern edge of the Plaza and is filled with galleries showcasing Native American pottery, cowboy art, and custom-made jewelry. On the Plaza’s east side, shops along Old Santa Fe Trail burst with sculptures, weavings, fetishes, and katsinas. North

of the Plaza, Palace Avenue features a mixture of traditional landscapes, clay sculptures, textile arts, cartoon animations, and color-field paintings, while on Lincoln, Washington, and Marcy you’ll find some of the world’s best fine-art photography, Native American sculpture, modernist masterpieces, and mixed-media collages. One block south of the Plaza, on Water Street, you can choose from representational Southwestern works and contemporary abstract paintings, and on Galisteo and Don Gaspar galleries are filled with iconic images by world-renowned Native American artists as well as black-andwhite photographs from the 1950s and ’60s. Be sure to swing by Downtown in the summer, when international art fairs like Spanish Market and Indian Market take over the streets, with thousands of exhibitors showcasing one-of-a-kind, musthave works in every style and medium.

santa fean downtown 2013


annual events local happenings throughout the year Downtown Santa Fe bustles with activity year-round, but certain days are particularly lively—and particularly noteworthy. Santa Fe’s oldest annual celebration, Fiesta de Santa Fe (santafefiesta.org), has been held every year since 1712 in honor of Don Diego de Vargas’s peaceful reconquering of the city 20 years earlier. From September 6–8, the Plaza and its surrounding blocks come alive with parades, markets, fairs, musical performances, and the annual burning of Zozobra (zozobra.com), a.k.a. Old Man Gloom, at Fort Marcy Park. On November 22, the annual Lighting of Christmas Decorations turns the Santa Fe Plaza into a must-see winter wonderland. The feel-good event includes live entertainment and a visit from Santa Claus. The following week, you can partake in (or simply watch) a reenactment of Mary and Joseph’s search for lodging during Las Posadas, a procession around the Plaza that begins and ends at the Palace of the Governors. From February 22–24, ARTSmart hosts ARTFeast (artfeast.com), where art is celebrated alongside food, home design, and fashion with tastings, tours, and shows. Proceeds from the event go to local youth art programs. On the Fourth of July, locals head downtown for the Rotary Club of Santa Fe’s Pancakes on the Plaza (pancakesontheplaza.com). Breakfast is served from 7 am until noon, and afternoon events include children’s activities, a silent auction, and an arts and crafts show. All proceeds go to local nonprofits. Spanish Market (spanishcolonialblog.org), July 26–28, kicks off the summer festival season with a weekend-long celebration of traditional Spanish art and offerings that include vendor booths, live music and dance, art demonstrations, and regional cuisine. Perhaps the most popular event of the year, Indian Market (swaia.org) attracts more than 100,000 people to its booths each summer. The annual event, slated for August 12–18, is the largest Native American arts market in the world. 16


“There is a vibrant energy exclusive to Downtown’s arts and museum district in the heart of historic Santa Fe. The city’s deep-rooted history and abounding culture are preserved and celebrated within this charming and diverse area. I find that musing on Downtown’s rich heritage and envisioning our ancestors who settled this beautifully preserved historic city is inevitable; Santa Fe is a deeply inspiring city. Downtown is the only place to be on the first Friday of every month for the festive atmosphere of the First Friday Art Walks from 5 to 7 pm. During the walks you can discover artwork from internationally recognized and renowned regional contemporary artists as well as masterworks from the 19th and 20th centuries and ethnographic treasures from around the world.” —Kathrine Erickson, owner, EVOKE Contemporary Above: Margarete Bagshaw, Between Two Worlds, oil on panel, 48 x 36".

Sarah Kucerova, Unfolding Journey, oil on canvas, merbau wood, 46 x 15”. Courtesy of Carol Kucera Gallery.

Whether you’re a serious art collector or first-time buyer, you won’t leave Downtown empty-handed. “As a veteran traveler, I can count the number of truly distinctive downtown areas in the United States on one hand. Santa Fe, with its unique adobe architecture, is certainly among them. For the road-weary, Santa Fe’s downtown offers a week’s worth of dining, shopping, galleries, and museums within easy walking distance (not cab, not subway—actual walking!) of your accommodations. I will be back!”—Donna Schillinger, visitor from Arkansas

“Our view of the Plaza affords us the opportunity to enjoy all the changes every day has to offer. The beautiful Christmas lights in the trees and the farolitos along the roofs during the holidays, the flower baskets hanging in spring, the street musicians and performers year-round, and the constant changing of window displays in the shops and galleries are all a testament to the endurance of Santa Fe as a mecca for creative and artistic types. I especially enjoy seeing the Native American artists under the portal of the Palace of the Governors year-round, no matter what the weather, selling their jewelry and pottery laid out on blankets just as their ancestors did a century ago.” —Becky Lowndes, web manager, Packards on the Plaza

With its narrow streets, historic buildings, homemade wares, and mom-and-pop stores, Downtown Santa Fe offers a unique shopping experience, whether you’re a first-time visitor or a longtime local. The Plaza—a park-like, four-block square that dates to the early 1600s, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and sits at the end of the famous Old Santa Fe Trail—forms the heart of Downtown. The Palace of the Governors, the oldest occupied building in the country and the former seat of the one-time territory’s Spanish government, lines the Plaza’s north side. Through the city’s long-standing Native American Vendors Program, which traces its roots to 1936, Native American artisans sell handmade jewelry, pottery, metalwork, and more beneath the building’s portal every day of the week. On the square’s eastern side, Packards on the Plaza carries authentic Native American pottery, carvings, and weavings as well as high-end jewelry and home decor items. The south side of the square is home to Charlotte Santa Fe, which sells unique, interchangeable jewelry pieces with precious stones, sapphires, and diamonds. While shopping along the Plaza, be sure to take note of the historic buildings that surround you, like the former Woolworth building, which dates to 1935 and now houses the Five &

Dime General Store, and the New Mexico Museum of Art, built in 1917 and designed by noted architect Isaac Rapp. North of the Plaza, tree-lined Marcy Street houses small shops that offer everything from rare stationery to contemporary home goods. To the south, on Water Street, you’ll find cosmetics, sunglasses, sporting goods, and more. On East Palace, sandwiched between quiet courtyards and world-class restaurants, small stores carry gourmet, chileladen chocolate and high-end footwear.

The Western-fashion-lover can find authentic cowboy boots just south of the Plaza at Boots & Boogie, where the merchandise is custom-made by the store’s owner. Close by, the HatSmith offers personalized cowboy hats along with a range of accessories and hatbands, many made by local artists. For Southwestern gear, stop into Rocki Gorman, whose jewelry designs are carried nationwide in places like The National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City. The store, located inside La Fonda on the Plaza, also sells high-end designer clothing. Golden Eye and Things Finer carry a wide selection of striking jewelry pieces—from pendants and earrings to diamond rings and decorative accessories—while Rippel and Company sells Southwestern belts and buckles, specialty items like money clips, and fine jewelry. In between these shops, and up and down almost every small street, you’ll pass cafés, art galleries, specialty stores (think gourmet olive oil), furniture shops, and more. Antique and consignment shops are also a draw, with places such as the Real Deal Collection offering new or gently used designer bags, shoes, and luggage. So whether you’re a serious shopper or a casual browser, don’t miss stopping into one—or all—of Downtown’s memorable shops. You’re sure to find what you’re looking for, and, without a doubt, things you never even knew you needed.

Nick Hermes, Cannonball!, oil, 24 x 48" Nick Hermes is a rare gem—young, whip smart, extremely adept at his art, and he has something important to say. Don’t be fooled—his whimsical imagery often belies a wry perspective. The painting Cannonball!, for example, is at once amusing and an astute comment on the process of growing up: The little girl embodies the boy’s younger, more timid self while the elephant symbolizes the daring person the boy is to become. The latest offerings by Nick Hermes are available at Joe Wade Fine Art. Open year round, Monday–Saturday 10 am–5 pm and Sunday 10 am–4 pm.

Drawing from old masters Jan van Eyck, Albrecht Dürer, Pieter Bruegel, and Hieronymus Bosch—both in subject matter and in the ancient egg tempera and resin oil painting technique—the works of artist Daniel Martin Diaz possess a sincerity that foregrounds his deep devotion to revealing a higher meaning through painstaking craftsmanship. Through his application of a limited palette on distressed wood, his handmade wooden frames, and his expressive use of Latin text, Diaz’s images thrust us into another time and place. 142 Lincoln Ave, Ste 102 505-820-0788, popsantafe.com

EARLY LAST CENTURY, a group of writers— including Willa Cather and D. H. Lawrence— trekked to Santa Fe to form a literary colony, which, during its heyday from the 1920s to the 1940s, produced best-selling books and hundreds of articles, essays, and poems that helped promote Santa Fe as a popular tourist destination. Many of the sites where these writers once lived and gathered still stand as testaments to this remarkable literary era. A tour of “Literary Santa Fe” takes you to those homes and hangouts, revealing the rich legacy of Santa Fe’s golden literary era. Begin your tour at the Palace of the Governors (100 Palace). According to legend, Lew Wallace, who served as territorial governor of New Mexico from 1878 to 1881, wrote Ben-Hur: A Tale of Christ while living there, and his chair and writing table are still on view. Just a few steps away you’ll come to Sena Plaza, a courtyard located off Palace Avenue. This was once the home of the Villagra Book Shop, which opened in 1927. (Today the shop houses Gusterman Silversmiths.) The Villagra was a famous gathering spot for local and visiting writers, who often stopped by for tea, martinis, and gossip. The Plaza was the setting for Dorothy Hughes’s popular 1946 mystery Ride the Pink Horse, while La Fonda on the Plaza, across the street from the Cathedral Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi, lodged many famous visitors including Cather, who came up with the idea to write Death Comes for the Archbishop while she was a guest there. Walk a few blocks north of the Plaza to 342 Buena Vista, the home of poet Witter Bynner and currently the Inn of the Turquoise Bear. Bynner moved to Santa Fe in 1922 and expanded his property over the course of four decades. He even added a second-story addition called “The O. Henry Story,” which he financed by selling manuscripts written by the namesake author. Bynner was also wellknown for his legendary parties, which drew the likes of Robert Frost, W. H. Auden, Aldous Huxley, and Thornton Wilder. One final stop should be The Fray Angélico Chávez History Library (120 Washington), which contains copies of conquistador Gaspar Pérez de Villagrá’s 1610 epic poem Historia de la Nueva México as well as notebooks and papers of anthropologist Adolph Bandelier, namesake of Bandelier National Monument.

mucho gusto downtown dining is a feast for the palate



Part of the charm of Santa Fe—and certainly one of the reasons it’s a culinary capital of the Southwest—is the fact that this town of roughly 70,000 people is home to more than 200 restaurants. With such a healthy ratio of mouths to dining destinations, you’re never at a loss for edible options to titillate your taste buds. What’s more, many of the best eateries are just a stone’s throw from the 400-year-old Plaza— the center of Santa Fe’s history and culture. The variety of cuisines is another boon to Downtown’s dining scene. Whether you’re sampling Spanish fare at a tasty tapas restaurant, exploring norteño cooking at a decadesold establishment, loving la dolce vita at an Italian trattoria, or experiencing the hottest trend at the city’s newest restaurant, Santa Fe has something to woo every palate. And remember, a stroll around the picturesque Plaza is a great way to walk off any extra calories. Bon appétit—or, as we say in New Mexico, buen provecho!—John Vollertsen

On Santa Fe’s east side, up a winding dirt road with views that stretch down into town and up into the mountains, lies the tucked-away adobe home of Sarah and John Bienvenu. Here, goats, chickens, a horse, and a quintessentially Santa Fe portal welcome visitors. But the home’s standout features are found inside, thanks to interior designer Jamie Stoilis, who helped the couple revamp their midcentuty adobe, allowing for a better flow of light and energy and creating a more favorable environment for displaying Sarah’s artwork.

with the flow an interior renovation brings light and energy into an Eastside adobe

by Samantha Schwirck photographs by Julien McRoberts

A painting by Rex Ray (Turner Carroll Gallery), wooden chairs by Loren Bienvenu, and textiles by Jamie Stoilis accentuate a cozy lounging area.

Artist Sarah Bienvenu and her husband, John, have lived in their late 1960s Eastside adobe for 23 years, and while the home has served them and their family well over the decades, they recently decided it needed some improvements. “The house was very eclectic in too many ways, and many of the details were clumsy and unattractive,” Sarah says. To help her get the renovation under way, Sarah contacted Jamie Stoilis of J Stoilis Design. The two collaborated with local artisans and businesses to improve the design and layout of the home, opening up the entryway, kitchen, and living and dining spaces to facilitate a better flow of light and energy, and to create an environment more conducive 110

to displaying art. In addition to her own contemporary watercolors, Sarah, who shows at Winterowd Fine Art in Santa Fe, has a diverse collection of curiosities she and John have assembled over the years. “We’ve always loved the arts and crafts of New Mexico—Native American pottery, [pieces we bought at] Spanish Market, folk art, ceramics, and contemporary art,” Sarah says. “We’re not collectors, but we’ve enjoyed finding certain wonderful pieces.” Beverley Spears of Spears Architects created a remodeling plan that called for large, arched doorways throughout the home to assist with improving the flow between each room. A heavy wooden door ushers guests inside, where an intimate nook—containing a banco, a kiva fireplace, and wooden chairs made by Sarah and John’s son, Loren—is opposite the entryway. The nook leads seamlessly into the living area, where a fireplace featuring a handcarved mantel by Luis Tapia and custom tile work on the hearth by Leon Simas makes a stunning centerpiece. Jamie customdesigned shelving to accommodate specific pieces, like Mexican candelabras and folk art

A gift from the owners of Hotel Santa Fe in Puerto Escondido sits on a built-in shelf in the home's entryway. Below: Custom shelving helps display a collection of art and personal items.

antiquities, and in the dining room she crafted a built-in nicho out of an antique cabinet and a shelf to hold Sarah’s antique glassware. The room also contains an authentic, eye-catching trastero that was given to them by Barbara and Robin Cleaver, the owners of Hotel Santa Fe in Puerto Escondido. The kitchen, with its old-world charm and elegant woodwork by Michael Moran of Wood Design, is the heart of the home. “We added two windows, which created an inviting view and provides beautiful light,” Jamie says. “This is just a place you want to spend your time in.” Sarah agrees. “I take great pleasure in being in it every single day.” A painting by Sarah Bienvenu adds subtle color to the dining area. Hand-forged ironwork by Helmut Hillenkamp and a traditional trastero complete the simple but sophisticated look.

Tiles from Statements in Tile/Lighting/Kitchens/Flooring are a focal point on the portal. Below: Nelly the cat poses in an archway dividing the kitchen and the lounging nook.

bedroom design tips for getting a good night’s sleep

Three hundred feet of Chama River waterfront provides a private retreat outside this 2,467-square-foot Abiquiú home. Opportunity abounds for river fishing, water sports, and relaxing on the large porch. Inside, three bedrooms surround an open floor plan with high ceilings and abundant light provided by dormer windows—perfect for entertaining and lounging with family or friends. Located on 8.46 acres with a three-car garage, the home can be used as a full-time residence, a summer vacation spot, or a cozy winter getaway.

“I made a nap this afternoon. I made it out of two pillows, a bed, a sheet, a blanket, and exhaustion.” —Jarod Kintz

If you’re like the average person who gets eight hours of shut-eye each night, you’ll spend at least one-third of your life sleeping. Getting a good night’s rest is important, and the decor, ambience, and comfort level of your bedroom play a large role in your overall sleeping experience. As you might expect, bedroom design is very personal. As a bedding specialist, I find myself obsessing over duvet covers and thread counts just as much as the bed itself. While one person might want a romantic, airy space with bedposts, canopies, and flowing sheer fabrics, another might prefer a clean, neutral space—their own personal Zen retreat at the end of a hectic day. No matter what your style, taste, or habits may be, there are certain rules of thumb you should always keep in mind when designing your sleeping space:

List price: $499,000 Contact: Keller Williams Realty kw.com

Foundation The mattress you’re sleeping on is the foundation of a good night’s sleep. The ideal mattress is different for everyone, however, so make sure you try out a number of options in order to find the one that’s right for you. Linens While it’s correct that a high thread count (the number of threads per square inch) can mean higher quality, the true test is what the sheets are made from. For top-notch sheets that are durable, mostly lint-free, and luxuriously soft, look for ones made from pima, Egyptian, or Supima cotton. With Egyptian cotton, I highly recommend a 400 thread count. You’ll immediately notice—and appreciate—the difference. Accessories Your bedside tables can be an opportunity to express your style—there’s no rule that says that the ones on each side of the bed have to be the same. If you’re an avid reader, make sure your table has drawers to keep books from piling up, and be sure to include a gorgeous lamp to create a cozy, inviting atmosphere.

Finishing Touches A vintage trunk or an elegant bench can balance the visual presence of your bed. For flexible seating, align a duo of ottomans at the bed’s end. —Suzanne O’Leary, marketing director, ACC Fine Furnishings



june/july 2013

Chris Martinez

Focal Points Elevate your bedroom to new style heights with a stunning headboard. For privacy and a sense of enclosure, use canopies or bed curtains to wrap your bed in rich folds of fabric.

Romantic patterns (top), luxurious throws (center), and contemporary color palettes (bottom) create distinctly different bedroom designs.

the great wide open art in the outdoors by Samantha Schwirck In a place with more than 300 days of sunshine a year—where alfresco is celebrated and plein air is preferred—it comes as no surprise that emphasis is placed on outdoor living. Add Santa Fe’s artistic roots into the mix and you’ll discover a town filled with openair spaces that awe and inspire as much as anything you’ll find in a gallery. Sidewalk sculptures and kinetic garden art attract visitors from around the world to Canyon Road, St. Francis Cathedral, the Santa Fe Community Convention Center, and the Railyard district. But according to Catherine Clemens, of the landscape design company Clemens & Associates, outdoor art displays are popular in residential settings as well. “Santa Feans are sophisticated, and they have high expectations for design in their homes and gardens,” she says. “They want to see unique reflections of their personal tastes. This desire for creative expression can lead to a landscape design that is artful in itself—colorful walls, stonework, metal accents, and decorative paving.” The idea of decorating your outdoor space can be daunting. The decor must be able to withstand the elements, and plants that populate any landscape art must be able to survive the Southwest’s arid climate. To meet these challenges, however, Southwestern landscape experts incorporate region-specific elements into their designs, often working with plants that don’t need much extra water or care. Artists and sculptors knowingly incorporate materials like bronze, metal, and resin-based plastic into their pieces so that they won’t be destroyed by rain, snow, hail, or wind. In some cases, they even create pieces that gain a more desirable appearance, or patina, once they’ve been exposed to natural elements. “With our short growing season and dry climate, all of these elements work well to provide year-round interest,” Clemens says, adding that she has seen a trend toward high design in all outdoor areas, from furniture and fabrics to light fixtures and garden ornaments.

nature’s playground Santa Fe is filled with eye-catching sculpture gardens. While some are hard to miss—like the ones at Wiford Gallery and Mark White Fine Art on Canyon Road and the Shidoni Foundry and Galleries in Tesuque—others are tucked away behind the walls of private residences. The type of work in these spaces varies, but kinetic art is popular in the area, as is traditional Southwestern figurative sculpture and large-scale contemporary pieces.

what’s in a name?

In the days of yore, last names often reflected chosen professions: Blacksmiths became Smiths, shoemakers became Schumachers. So it makes perfect sense that Keegan Crumpacker went into the baking business. His casual café and bakery on the south side of town upped the ante on the quality of pies, pastries, and other goodies available to the neighborhood’s burgeoning population. Locals and visitors alike can get in on the deliciousness at the Santa Fe Farmers Market as well, where Crumpacker also sells his treats. Using fresh, local produce like the kind that’s available at neighboring market stalls, the busy baker’s offerings include creamy, delicate-crusted cheesecake crowned with sweet, plump berries (pictured), veggie quiches, fruit pies (try the raspberry rhubarb), and New Mexico pecan pies. Back at the café, the breakfast menu boasts one of the more voluptuous breakfast burritos around, while lunchtime fare includes a fire-grilled duck and a mozzarella and Romesco sauce panini.

At Bouche Bistro, Chef Charles Dale’s duck confit is served with white beans and kale.

table offers front-row seats and quick-bite seating for pre-opera and -theater noshing. Diners feel immediately transported to a Parisian brasserie. The restaurant’s atmosphere and acoustics are lively and convivial, which may not be to everyone’s taste, but the calming garden setting of the terrace offers respite from the inside hullabaloo. The menu is waiting for you at your table when you arrive, printed on a long, narrow card and featuring all the usual suspects, with a few surprises as well. Since summer is in full swing, start with the seafood platter piled with pristine jumbo prawns, oysters, and crab claws with sauces and lemon for dipping. Fabulous bread (made from a 20-year-old starter) arrives hot and fresh out of the oven—a trend I wish hadn’t gone out of style. The charcuterie plank with an array of cured meats and duck rillettes is great to share—definitely add a slice of terrine of foie gras for a worth-it surcharge. Dale’s gift to the bistro scene is his spin on dishes that the French think to leave well enough alone. If you thought the only reason to eat escargot was for the garlic butter (I did), think again: At Bouche, the plump snails are anything but chewy. They are so succulent and garlicky that you immediately forget their origin. Frog legs, too, take on a new, yummy identity when battered, crisp-fried, and served atop herbaceous ravioli and a tomatoey broth.

bistro mon amour fantastique French fare flourishes in Santa Fe

In a state famous for its beloved fiery chile, it seems as if suddenly everyone in town has gone mad for the French classics. And no, I’m not talking about Molière and Voltaire—I’m talking about those wonderful archetypal dishes you fell in love with in a cozy bistro in Paris or New York City. As much as Santa Fe diners adore having their taste buds slapped and singed with daily doses of red or green, we also clearly love them to be bathed in butter and salved in duck fat. When Chef Charles Dale announced his plans to open a classic French bistro and join the ranks of the well-established and much-loved 315 Bistro and Wine Bar and the new Vivre, my first thought was, Is he playing it safe or playing it smart? After a near-perfect dinner late this spring at his lovely Bouche Bistro (bouchebistro.com), I’m convinced of the latter. Simple, good food is always in season, and in this stillfickle economy, focusing on that is a shrewd move. No need to reinvent the wheel; just tweak it slightly. Dale’s local acclaim comes from having put Terra at Encantado on the map. His menu there made the swanky resort a destination in itself, and I have no doubt his fans will follow him into town. At Bouche, the dining room of the former Agua Santa space has been reshaped to include comfy banquettes, which allow aptly curious and nosy diners to peer into the open kitchen and view Chef Dale and his team at work.

from wining to dining Arroyo Vino gets in on the restaurant scene

One of Bouche Bistro’s seasonal salads: frisée aux lardons with runny egg, broiled chèvre, and duck bacon.

If you yearn for further foie, the sautéed fresh slab of goose liver, whose preparation changes nightly, is well worth the fat. The night we had it, a sherry vinegar gastrique and poached pears created a luscious, sweet-andsour effect that let it take over the mantle for best in town. Tuna carpaccio niçoise is a perfect celebration of summer freshness, while the frisée salad with housemade duck bacon, runny egg, broiled chèvre, and braised pork shoulder sitting in for lardons is a tasty twist on the classic. Braised beef short ribs require no knife, as they’ve been rendered unbelievably and deliciously tender in their pot-au-feu bath. A simple filet of sole poached in olive oil sous-vide had a hard time competing with the richer, fuller-flavored offerings—better to choose the meunière treatment unless you’re watching your figure. Moist duck confit wallows in white beans and leafy kale. If you’re dining with your lover (be it spouse or otherwise), feed each other the fat mussels in winey broth and then share the roast organic chicken for two. This is the place to do it! It’s hard to save room for dessert, but if nothing else, take on the enormous trio of profiteroles with warm chocolate ganache—proof that big is better. A lighter option is the chocolate soufflé gussied up with a Nutella crème. Delish! You’ll recognize Bouche’s sommelier, Paul Montoya, from Geronimo, so let him lead you around the outstanding French and New World wine list. His forethought to start us off with a beautiful bottle of bubbly, the Gerard Bertrand Cremant, shows his almost psychic ability to read a table’s mood. A crisp Saget Sancerre from Loire was the perfect follow up; Montoya knows me well. If you think I’ve turned my back on the hatch and the chimayo, au contraire, mon frère. But French cookery may be second in my heart. Vive la différence!—JV

Foodies, oenophiles, and Las Campanas-ites rejoice! The already popular Arroyo Vino wine, beer, and spirit emporium has added a classy restaurant to the mix, giving residents of one of Santa Fe’s most luxurious neighborhoods another reason to stay close to home. More cause for celebration is that the opening of the Arroyo Vino restaurant (arroyovino.com) marks the return of one of our gourmet-mad town’s most talented young chefs, Mark Connell. Recharged and hungry to rally his fans, Connell, who deliciously burst onto the local scene with the Guadalupe district’s Max’s restaurant, took a year off from manning the stoves following the birth of his son, Finn. While Arroyo Vino’s small-plate menu may be simpler and cheaper than the one that could be found at upscale Max’s, it’s certainly no less luscious or provocative. The restaurant’s airy dining room, which opens alongside the wine shop, is sleek, modern, and comfortable. It’s a nice mix of casual and fashionable, with exposed light bulbs and white tablecloths. You’ll fit in whether you’re dressed up or dressed down. There’s an interesting list of wines by the glass and bottle, drawn from the wine shop’s cache, but here you’ll discover another Arroyo Vino perk: Any wine that’s available in the shop can be served in the restaurant and purchased at retail price with a $20 corkage fee. (I’ve vowed to return for a bottle of Roederer Cristal, which would come to $270 instead of $450.) The whole staff and especially partner Brian Bargsten are splendidly

With a dining experience this good, the Las Campanas crowd won’t be able to keep Arroyo Vino a secret for long.

I’m not quite ready for swimsuit season and it’s already here! I have lots of excuses and plenty of things to blame (apart from a complete lack of willpower when it comes to our local restaurants). Suffice it to say: So many dishes, so little time! Personally, I’m ready to proclaim that the recession is over. What better way to celebrate than to visit our beautiful city and join the locals in one of our more than 200 restaurants? Covering our exciting hospitality scene keeps me on my toes. Chefs get restless and frequently hop stoves, but the good thing is that with every move they strive harder to woo our palates. New players, too, join the fun and keep our taste buds constantly titillated. One such temptation is The Beestro (thebeestro.com), a downtown grab-and-go venue tucked along Marcy Street. Perfect for day-trip chowing, opera tailgating, or lunch poolside or at your desk, what sets The Beestro apart is the extensive use of fresh, local, and in-season ingredients. Try the Dutch chicken panini with lime-, garlic-, and jalapeno-marinated chicken breast, grilled and layered with Havarti, greens, and local apple butter and pressed on a whole-wheat baguette. Yum! Another new kid on the block is Dr. Field Goods Kitchen (drfieldgoods.com), smartly positioned next to Jackalope on Cerrillos. The eclectic menu, described on the restaurant’s website as New Mexico fusion, runs the gamut from fish and chips to green-chile pulled pork, and from quinoa salad to wood-fired pizza. (I think the pizza will be the big draw here.) The food scene on the south side of town is really heating up. I look forward to sampling the best our City Deliciously Different has to offer. As for that swimsuit, I don’t have a pool anyway!—JV santafean.com

knowledgeable on food and wine pairings and can guide you in your selections. Some plates are small and others are mediumsized, which allows for and encourages sharing. While tapas dishes tend to be somewhat monochromatic in design, Connell’s come more fully realized; we wanted to sample them all, and we darn near did! Plates of simply roasted cauliflower, pickled vegetables, and ricotta con latte with a drizzle of emerald olive oil and sided with grilled bread got us going—straightforward and tasty. Salads are creative and perfectly dressed; sunchokes add an unusual crunch to a toss of greens, pears, and hazelnuts; while shaved fennel, arugula, and chèvre are a luscious blend of anise, pepper, and tartness. An intense vegetal asparagus soup is infused with the summery essence of tarragon and fancied up with a dollop of crab meat. Veggie options are plentiful—a table favorite was a crusty-on-the-outside/creamy-on-the-inside truffled potato cake sauced with a caramelized cipollini onion purée. Seamless ravioli, great for the low-carb crowd, is more ricotta dumpling than pasta dish but still yummy in a puddle of fork-tender, slow-braised short ribs. Another stunner was the crispy suckling pig kicked up a notch with kimchi purée. Connell’s creativity is his calling card. The petit four plate was a nice, light dessert option that we nibbled on while finishing the staffrecommended tenuta della terre nere from the slopes of Mount Etna that wowed us with its inky complexity. Start with the Gosset champagne, which hails from the oldest bubbly vineyard in the world. With a dining experience this good, the Las Campanas crowd won’t be able to keep Arroyo Vino a secret for long. I expect some serious culinary countercommuting to be going on. Pace yourself, Chef Connell; you have miles to go before you sleep!—JV
