publisher’s note

|

It’s a magical time in Santa Fe. There is something about the farolitos, the lights in the Plaza trees, and the snow on the gingerbread adobe houses and walls that makes Santa Fe even more enchanting than usual. Our community takes Christmas and the seasonal holidays to heart, with processions and events to celebrate all their nuances. Truly, Santa Fe is one of the most wonderful cities in the world to share the holiday experience. Our calendar has extensive lists of fun seasonal activities to fill your days and nights during these winter celebrations. This is the time and the place to fully experience the holidays as only Santa Fe can deliver. It’s a time to focus on the importance of family, friends, spirituality, history, tradition, and the serenity of enjoying a warm fire on a cold night. Whatever way you celebrate this time of holidays, I wish you the joy of finding the magic both in our city and within yourself.

Baroque music and holiday decorations add to the ambience of Loretto Chapel.

Santa Fe Pro Musica: A Baroque Christmas

Steven Ovitsky

The Santa Fe Jewish Center brings a giant menorah to the Plaza for Chanukah, along with latkes, dancing, and acrobats.

Loretto Chapel is one of Santa Fe’s architectural jewels, and when it’s dressed up for Christmas there is no lovelier spot. Fill it with baroque music played on period instruments and it’s absolutely sublime. Santa Fe Pro Musica does just that each December with A Baroque Christmas. The program includes a Handel concerto grosso for strings and one of Telemann’s Paris Quartets, scored for flute, violin, cello, and continuo (organ and bassoon), performed by the Santa Fe Pro Musica Baroque Ensemble. The centerpiece is Vivaldi’s Nisi Dominus for mezzo-soprano and strings. Avery Amereau and Deborah Domanski, both mezzos with glowing opera credentials, will alternate performances of the exquisite nine-movement work. Each concert ends with a selection of traditional carols.—LVS Santa Fe Pro Musica: A Baroque Christmas, December 20–24 at 6 pm and 8 pm, $20–$80, Loretto Chapel, 207 Old Santa Fe Trl, santafepromusica.com December 22, 2016 NOW 1

Canyon Road Farolito Walk

Beautifully lit Canyon Road galleries wear a little extra winter charm for Christmas Eve’s annual Farolito Walk.

Canyon Road’s beloved Farolito Walk takes place on Saturday, December 24. Beginning around dusk, Canyon Road becomes a Santa Fean Christmas wonderland. Often it seems the whole city has turned out to see the thousands of farolitos (small paper bags filled with sand and topped with a votive candle) or “fauxlitos” (the electrified models) and the many luminarias (small piñon wood bonfires) that pop up along the streets. Many of the galleries are open, offering hot cider or hot chocolate to the numerous window shoppers and random carolers. A festive tradition for all to enjoy.—Amanda Jackson Canyon Road Farolito Walk, December 24, begins at dusk and continues until approximately 10 pm, free, Canyon Road, facebook.com/ santafecanyonroadfarolitowalk

Galactic Jungle: NYE with Meow Wolf Never one for the ordinary, Meow Wolf is hosting a Galactic Jungle New Year’s Eve party at the Shellaberger Tennis Center starting at 8 pm on Saturday, December 31. Think “space station on an alien planet,” says Meow Wolf CEO Vince Kadlubek. The music lineup includes The Rev, dj erin e, Ana M, Bacon, and Max P.F.F.P., with a larger dance floor than at MW headquarters. There will be food trucks outside and beverages for sale from Santa Fe Brewing Company. The organization is expecting more than 1,000 party-goers; admission will be $40 at the door, and early-bird tickets may still be available on the website. Also, spurred by the recent Ghost Ship tragedy in Oakland, Meow Wolf is launching 2017 at 12:01 am with a $100,000 annual fund, granted according to need, to provide performance and art spaces around the world with legal, organizational, and building code assistance. Applications will be available on the Meow Wolf website from January 1 until March; awards will be announced in May.—Anne Maclachlan Galactic Jungle: New Year’s Eve 2017, December 31, 8:00 pm–1:30 am, $40, 21+, Rosemarie Shellaberger Tennis Center, 1600 St. Michael’s Drive, meowwolf.com

New Year’s Eve on the Plaza New Year’s Eve on the Plaza is a not-to-be-missed event for locals and visitors alike. Festivities begin at 9:30 pm, and include bonfires lining the Plaza, various food trucks, and coffee, tea, and hot chocolate available with a donation to the Big Brothers Big Sisters Mountain Region. Sol Fire and Nosostros will play on the bandstand. When the clock strikes midnight, fireworks will kick off 2017 in the nation’s oldest capital city. Join us in saying “Bienvenidos” and “Prospero Año Nuevo” to 2017! Check the website listed for information regarding parking, road closures, and transit/taxi options.—AJ New Year’s Eve on the Plaza, December 31, 9:30 pm–12:15 am, free, the Plaza, santafe.org/nye December 22, 2016 NOW 3

Poteet Victory, Horse Study in Grey, oil on canvas, 32 x 42"

Cowboy Up! Christmas Show and Online Auction McLarry Modern 225 Canyon Online art auction through December Closing reception December 23, 3–7 pm

In conjunction with Horses for Heroes—New Mexico, Inc., McLarry Modern hosts an online art auction through December, with a closing reception and final bidding at the gallery on the 23rd. Live entertainment and refreshments are featured at this festive reception, and proceeds from the auction go to benefit Cowboy Up!—a local horsemanship, wellness, and skill-set restructuring program designed for post 9/11 military veterans and active military personnel. Tailored for those who have sustained post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), physical injuries, or other combat trauma while serving their country, this equine therapy program has proven to be one of the most beneficial and cost-effective programs to help those who have served with honor. Expect to see many horse-themed works, as well as contemporary Western works and abstracts from gallery artists including Poteet Victory, Mark Edward Adams, and Rick Brunner.—Amanda Jackson December 22, 2016 NOW 11

Affinity photo-eye Gallery 541 S Guadalupe photoeye.com Through January 21 Photographer Brad Wilson has his second solo show, Affinity, in photoeye’s main gallery through January 21. This color-portrait series explores the unique and subtle idiosyncrasies in each of his subjects—captive birds, reptiles, and mammals in a studio environment, against a stark black background. Wilson explains, “It’s just you and the animal and you can kind of inhabit the space with the animal…you’re seeing the animal in a way that you could never see it in the wild or in a zoo.” Wilson was formally educated in art history and studio art at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. His work has been published worldwide, with notable inclusions at Photo LA, Art Beijing, and AAF London. —Amanda Jackson

Marlin Rotach, Saddle Study #3, Little Windows with a Big View transparent watercolor, 11 x 14" Sorrel Sky Gallery 125 W Palace sorrelsky.com Through December 31 Just in time for a holiday splurge, Sorrel Sky hosts an exhibition of small works titled Little Windows with a Big View. This show features small artworks in various media by the gallery’s numerous artists, including Edward Aldrich, Gerald Balciar, Stephen Day, Cynthia DeBolt, Peggy Immel, Michael Lewis, Chuck Sabatino, and Star Liana York. Gallery owner Shanan Campbell Wells remarks, “As the gallery receives new small works from its many artists, excitement builds for the show itself. These smaller pieces have such a different power than larger works. They speak quietly but with great impact, pulling you in and telling you a story that perhaps only you can hear. Sharing those stories with family and friends makes these small works even more powerful.”—AJ

Holiday Show Chiaroscuro 558 Canyon chiaroscurosantafe.com Through January 7 Chiaroscuro’s annual Holiday Show highlights recent pieces from the gallery’s artists along with large-scale works: photographs from Renate Aller and abstract watercolors from Daniel Brice. Aller’s photographs have been exhibited in the United States, Europe, and Asia, and hang in numerous private collections and museums, including The Lannan Foundation and the Yale University Art Gallery. Brice, a California-based artist, creates mixed media, watercolor, charcoal, and pastel works—studies in the use of line and color that convey a complex world of ideas.—AJ

Online/Offline ViVO Contemporary 725 Canyon vivocontemporary.com Through January 17 During this busy holiday and post-holiday season, ViVO Contemporary invites you to unplug and go offline to discover the visual and digital experience that is their exhibition, Online/Offline. Through exploring the real and virtual concepts of edges, lines, and contrast, this exhibit implores viewers to experience each artwork, then go online at a gallery digital kiosk to discover additional information about the art and artists via the ViVO website. Comprising multiple media, including paintings, sculpture, assemblages, constructions, monotypes, and of course the digital aspect, this exhibition seamlessly blends the gallery experience and online world in one interactive art exhibition.—AJ

Alma Loretto Concha (Taos), four-piece nacimiento, clay and pigments, tallest figure 6"

Nacimientos Adobe Gallery 221 Canyon adobegallery.com Through January 7 Begun in 1979, and continuing in its holiday tradition, Adobe Gallery presents an exhibition dedicated to nacimientos, or nativity scenes, made exclusively in New Mexico by Pueblo potters. Nativity sets have been popular collector’s items since the 1970s, particularly the folk art pottery sets featuring the birth of Jesus with a Native American twist. These Native American artists, including (just to name a few): Helen Cordero (Cochiti), Ada Suina (Cochiti), Seferina Ortiz (Cochiti), Manuel Vigil (Tesuque), Stella Teller (Isleta), Alma Concha (Taos), and Marie Herrera (Nambé), typically make the figurines in the likeness of Pueblo Indians. For example, Mary may wear her hair in a chonga and be wrapped in an Indian blanket, Joseph perhaps in long braids, moccasins, and an Indian sash, and the three wise men might be bearing traditional New Mexican gifts such as Indian bread, green chiles, a rabbit, or ears of corn. Even the animals typically associated with the scene are sometimes changed to bears, deer, or antelope.—AJ

Reneé Lawter, The Helper, watercolor on paper, 16 x 20"

Karma’s Kreatures POP Gallery 125 Lincoln popsantafe.com Through December 31 POP Gallery transforms into a “Creature Feature” this season with new two-dimensional and three-dimensional works by Seattle-based painter Juli Adams, native New Mexican sculptor Sophia Torres, Los Angeles artist Reneé Lawter, and sculptor Jeffery Herrity, among many others. Lawter’s watercolor series Karma’s Kreatures conveys a message in conservation and preservation by using odd characters to deliver her ideas. The series is shown through the eyes of her main character, Karma, a chronically ill little girl who sees strange creatures trying to make the world a healthier place. These beings, complete with crooked smiles and teeth, invite the viewer into a world that is at once foreign and familiar. The charming monsters balance wit and meaning within their sepia tones and vintage frames. The discussions of consumer culture and other global issues are sure to arise and evoke both contemplation and sympathy.—AJ December 22, 2016 NOW 13
