publisher’s note

|

Monday morning I took a relaxing stroll around the Plaza to savor the peace and quiet that has returned to our town, now that Indian Market and the huge crowds of summer have subsided. There’s still plenty going on—just without the big crowds. Final Friday gallery openings are happening tomorrow night, as well as the final night of the Summer Bandstand series. The music calendar is as busy as ever. Friday night at 5:30, there’s a wonderful auction at Gerard Vachez Gallery at 418 Montezuma to benefit the Wild Spirit Sanctuary, which cares for New Mexico wolves. These majestic animals are depicted in the extraordinary art that’s up for bid; and a live wolf will be there. I’m honored to be leading this auction event. Between the live and silent auction, it will be easy to bring home a wonderful piece of art that supports this important work. Check out the calendar. Between art and music, you’ll have many choices for fun this weekend. And the temperatures are perfect for being out and about.

The Center for Contemporary Arts, the Santa Fe Farmers Market Institute, and The Street Food Institute collaborate once more for the second chapter of Farms, Films, Food: A Santa Fe Celebration.

Michael Franti and Spearhead with Lila Downs 

National Park Service fee-free weekend Before August 25, 1916, the National Park Service was operated by the United States Cavalry; but 100 years ago, the changeover was made to nonmilitary supervision. To celebrate the centennial, all national parks are offering a fee-free weekend, starting Thursday, allowing New Mexicans to enjoy the Valles Caldera National Preserve, the Manhattan Project National Historical Park, Gila Cliff Dwellings National Monument, and of course, all the other national parks they can reach. Chris Judson, a Bandelier National Monument park ranger since 1976, says that the National Park Service presently has 412 sites. Bandelier is named for Adolph Bandelier, the first individual to complete formal anthropological work in New Mexico, and is home to Not for the faint of heart, the trail wildlife, cave dwellings, at Tsankawi, part of Bandelier, and some of the largest includes ladders. unchanged Civilian Conservation Corps buildings. Each of the parks has something unique to offer, and is worth a visit.—ES National Park Service fee-free weekend, August 25–28, times and locations vary, free, nps.gov

Michael Franti and his band Spearhead are well known for the song “Say Hey (I Love You)” and the album The Sound Of Sunshine. But apart from touring with U2 and Public Enemy, Franti also has a history of advocacy. He created the film I Know I’m Not Alone to document his experience with war while visiting the Middle East. He also backed incarcerated political activist Mumia Abu Jamal by hosting free Power to the Peaceful concerts in San Francisco. Winner of both the Grammy and Latin Grammy, musician Lila Downs complements Franti and Spearhead with her uncategorizable music, which often speaks to global issues. A combination of blues, jazz, soul, cumbia, rock, rap, and klezmer music, the Minnesota-and-Oaxacaraised artist sings in English, Spanish, and the languages of the Mixtec, Zapotec, Mayan, and Nahuatl peoples. Remaining true to the artists’ activism, part of the show’s proceeds will support Santa Fe–based Creativity for Peace, a program that brings together Palestinian and Israeli women to eliminate barriers, find common ground, and ultimately, reach peace.—Elizabeth Sanchez

Tickets for the gala are $125 per person; tour tickets are $25 each. For the most up-to-date information, tickets, and other details, please visit showhousesantafe.com. Meet two of this year’s designers:

Karen Lankford owns Box to Beautiful, an online interior design service and resource center that makes beautiful interior design accessible to everyone. “I knew that the people I most wanted to serve work on their homes (like I do) one piece at a time. They work on it when they find the time and a bit of extra money in their budget. It doesn’t happen overnight. They pick up an end table one weekend, paint the hallway some month down the road, and rearrange furniture right before company comes. So, Box to Beautiful was born.” After earning a B.A. in Mass Communications, Karen worked in marketing for the hotel and tourism industry, but still craved creativity in everyday life. In 2009, she earned a B.S. in Interior Design from the Art Institute of Pittsburgh, and now brings her creative passion to numerous residential and hospitality projects Troy D. Tryon has a Bachelor of Arts degree in interior design/architecture from Kansas State University in Manhattan, Kansas. He has worked in the interior design industry for over 25 years, starting at Davidson Furniture in Kansas City, Missouri, continuing at Glabman Furniture & Interior Design in Costa Mesa, California, and currently at American Country Collections in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Today, Troy is a buyer, curator of the showroom, and interior designer at ACC. His design philosophy: “It’s simple; to create eclectic spaces using old, new, and personal items making individual, comfortable living spaces for each client to enjoy.” August 25, 2016 NOW 7

Jason Salavon, Still Life (Morandi’s Infinite Shelf), real-time simulation on ultra widescreen monitor, 15 x 33"

With examples of his portfolio in prestigious collections like the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Whitney Museum of Art, and the Art Institute of Chicago, Jason Salavon is exhibiting his newest works, inspired by a six-month period working as the first artist-in-residence at Microsoft. These works blend pop culture and the digital age, using sources like trendy television shows and Wikipedia pages to create abstracted, often geometric compositions. Some of these juxtapositions are exhibited as art objects— photographic prints or video installations, for instance—while others exist only in a software context.—Stephanie Love

beauty from decay five local artists in a new group show by Jason Strykowski

Alchemy, the ancient quest to turn base metals into gold, inspired five New Mexican artists to explore the decline and transformation of real found objects for their joint upcoming exhibition at the Rotunda Gallery of the State Capitol. As printmakers and sculptors, the artists involved use everything from recycled books to old tea bags in order to illustrate the cycle of decay and transfiguration. Artists Patricia Pearce and Marilyn Chambers originated the project before asking Bill Skrips, Amy Parrish, and Ann Laser to join them. They also found a home for the sprawling exhibition at the State Capitol’s expansive Rotunda Gallery space. Putting these artists together “had everything to do with the ability to work as a team in this particular venue,” says Pearce. “They had a similar view, or at least one that could be compatible with the concept of ‘alchemy of decay’ and what that meant.” All of these artists are fascinated by the idea of what they describe as decay, but each takes a different approach in their examinations. “One of the things that I have in the show is a series of bronze sunflowers, and they all started from planting the sunflower and watching it grow, then watching the sunflower dry out,” says Pearce. Meanwhile, Skrips reclaimed a multitude of objects to carve new sculptures. Laser collected and mounted a variety of flavors of used tea bags to create something akin to a collage. Chambers turned old books into elaborate sculptures, and Parrish shaped sinew and animal hides into bundles that resemble swaddled babies. The August 16 opening of the exhibit will be punctuated by a performance of baroque music by flutist Kateri Chambers. Her selection will draw from a period during which alchemy was a popular theory in science as well as in the contemporary culture.

PREVIEWS Bruce King, Tribute to the Story Waxlander Gallery, 622 Canyon, waxlander.com Through August 29 With paintings spanning the traditional to the abstract, Waxlander Gallery exhibits landscapes, figurative works, still life compositions, and abstracts in a variety of media from watercolor to pastel, acrylic to oil, and mixed media. “Waxlander Gallery is known for its color,” says owner Phyllis Kapp. “We have always been focused on color and have not changed that focus for the 32 years we have been in business.” Housed in a beautiful old adobe building at 622 Canyon, Waxlander represents many local artists, as well as those from across the country and one from the U.K. One local artist, Bruce King (Oneida Nation, Wisconsin), has lived in Santa Fe since the 1960s. King attended the Institute of American Indian Arts (IAIA), and reflecting that education his paintings depict the story of his people and ancestors Bruce King, Under the Hunter’s Moon, in bold colors and forms that evoke both oil on canvas, 38 x 30" movement and energy.—Stephanie Love   Roger Williams Solo Exhibition Joe Wade Fine Art,102 E Water, joewadefineart.com August 26–September 9, reception August 26, 5–7 pm Announcing its newest exhibition of works from painter Roger Williams, Joe Wade Fine Art is thrilled to share the architectural, figurative, and landscape works of the Colorado native.

The result is stunning work that reflects aspects of various ceremonies and mythologies by such celebrated SFIS alumni as Quincy Tahoma (Navajo José Encarnacion Peña, Bow and Arrow Dancers, painter), Pablita Velarde (Santa Clara painter), watercolor on paper, 12 x 19" Gerald Nailor (Navajo painter), Blue Corn (San Ildefonso potter), Pop Chalee (Taos painter), Eva Mirabal (painter and cartoonist), and Narciso Abeyta (Navajo painter and silversmith).
