Few, if any, cities in this country, enjoy the rich and significant connection to Spain that Santa Fe does. While not the first inhabitants, the Spanish, since arriving almost 500 years ago, have defined much of what Santa Fe is today. This weekend we get to embrace that heritage with the annual Spanish Market, which fills our streets on Saturday and Sunday. Between the contemporary and traditional works that are always on view during the market, the proud heritage of Spain and the various Hispanic influences are evident. I especially appreciate the religious symbols and icons that speak to the deep spirituality that’s part of our culture and community. In the history of art, religion and spirituality have always played a huge role, and that remains the case today. As the calendar in this week’s issue of NOW demonstrates, there’s a lot of other art on view as well. The list of gallery openings is extensive; nearing the height of the summer season, it’s exciting to see the abundance of creativity on display in Santa Fe’s galleries. Lately I’ve been gratified to see movement on Santa Fe’s music scene, with the addition of Duel Brewing and another new venue getting ready to open soon. It seems to me the spirituality that inspires Santa Fe’s Spanish Market artists also inspires creativity within other art forms. We are blessed to be here.

saddle up the Santa Fe Horse Shelter holds its first annual Gimme Shelter Rally for Rescues

Cecilia Kayano

by Anna So cho ck y

Whether due to the soaring cost of hay or the deflated economy, the number of horses who find themselves at the Santa Fe Horse Shelter—which takes in neglected, abandoned, or mistreated animals—has swelled to 70. The shelter’s staff, volunteers, and board members work around the clock to feed and provide emergency and preventative medical attention to the horses, with the ultimate goal being to place adoptable horses into stable and appropriate homes. On Saturday, July 26, the shelter is holding its firstever Gimme Shelter Rally for Rescues. In April, nine prominent local horse trainers observed 16 shelter horses

Trainers Michelle DeCanditis (foreground) and Joost Lammers

and chose eight whom, over the course of the next 100 days, they then taught to safely walk, trot, and canter under a saddle. (None of the horses had been saddled or ridden before; only mounted.) The rally is part of the 10th annual National Day of the Cowboy, which will be hosted by Clint Mortenson and held at Mortenson’s ranch, where the trainers will compete with each other and show off the progress their horse has made as well as their own horsemanship. The horse demonstrating the best skills will win top honors for its trainer. While the winning trainer takes home $2,000, the real winners will be the horses. Immediately following the competition, each of the eight horses will be auctioned off to pre-screened homes. To learn more about the event and the trainers, and to be pre-screened for bidding on one of the eight horses, visit thehorseshelter.org.

Nine prominent horse trainers will participate in the Gimme Shelter Rally for Rescues event on July 26.

artistic freedom,” Baca says. “For example, I’ve incorporated straw appliqué into my work.” In addition to the compelling pieces on view, Spanish Market features a full lineup of entertainment at the Plaza’s bandstand, including mariachi music from Mariachi Sonidos del Monte and Mariachi Azteca, traditional Hispanic dance from Baile Español, and children’s traditional folk music performed by Cielito Lindo. Spanish Market: July 25: Collector’s hour (6–7 pm) and public preview (7–9 pm) at the Santa Fe Community Convention Center; July 26 & 27: Market in and around the Plaza, 8 am–5 pm.

On Saturday and Sunday, 180 adult artists and 48 youth artists take to Santa Fe’s Plaza to sell handmade traditional items—from bultos to santos and colchas—as part of the 63rd annual Spanish Market. Produced by the Spanish Colonial Arts Society, the event runs from 8 am to 5 pm both days and features a number of artists who have made repeat appearances over the years. “It’s a great event,” says Lawrence Baca, an award-winning jeweler who’s been exhibiting at the market since the mid-1990s. “There’s so much energy in the air. Everyone is happy to be there.” Baca sells a selection of pendants, rosaries, cuff bracelets, and earrings at the market, as well as his trademark Baca Beads. “Baca Beads are beaded necklaces and bracelets that are similar to Navajo bench beads but have a different flair,” he says. “I’ve been known for them [for almost 20 years].” A few years ago Baca began showing his work in a juried and fairly new category at the market called Innovations Within Tradition. While the artists are required to use traditional techniques and materials, they’re also allowed to push the artistic envelope. “It gives me a little more


India House chef and owner Kewal Singh Dhindsa uses fresh local ingredients to bolster traditional Indian dishes by An na So c ho c k y

HAVING SPENT YEARS living and working as a farmer in India before moving to the United States, buying locally grown food and serving delicious, affordable cuisine to customers is a way of life and matter of pride for Kewal Singh Dhindsa, chef and owner of the popular India House restaurant.

Left: Kewal Singh Dhindsa (right) with his son Amrik (left) and grandson Kaven.

Honored by various publications as the Best Indian Chef in San Francisco for three years in a row, Dhindsa and his family left the Bay Area following the 1989 earthquake,heading first to Los Angeles and eventually to Santa Fe, where he bought India House in 1992. Diners at the restaurant are greeted not only by a mix of soothing and enticing aromas, but also by the warmth of Dhindsa, his family, and his welcoming staff.

The expansive menu may tempt newcomers to broaden their palates, but it’s the restaurant’s casual and inviting ambience that brings diners back for lunch and dinner seven days a week. A popular lunchtime buffet offers a host of vegetarian, lamb, chicken, and seafood dishes, with chicken tikka masala being the most popular item on both the lunch and dinner menus. If you’re new to Indian food and are concerned that the food might be as hot as the summer sun in Santa Fe, there’s no need to worry: The restaurant’s inspiration is food “from the Punjab province in northern India,” says Dhindsa’s son Amrik, “which is not as spicy as in the south.” July 24, 2014

Taos artist Jeff Cochran paints tranquil landscapes of the fields and mountains that surround his five-acre organic farm in Northern New Mexico. And he also paints chimpanzees. “People liked [my chimpanzee paintings] and connected with them—they’re almost self-portraits of some sort,” Cochran says. During the winter, the artist gains inspiration from his primate neighbors in the rainforest of Costa Rica, where he works in a cabin by the ocean. Cochran’s work is currently on view in a solo exhibition opening at Manitou Galleries (through August 6, reception July 25, 5–7:30 pm, 225 Canyon, manitougalleries.com).—Cristina Olds

PROFILE

weaving a story

Poncho (Quechua Indian), alpaca fiber, 77 x 60"

ce nt ur ie s-old Ande a n texti le s a re on vi e w at t he Wi l l i a m Si egal Gal le r y by B a r ba ra Ty n e r

Textiles in Santa Fe usually mean fine Diné weavings that steal the show at Indian Market or delicate Pueblo cotton kilts that sway in ceremonial dances at nearby Tesuque or Kewa Pueblos. But the William Siegal Gallery’s new exhibition Balandrán Ponchos from the Giles Mead Collection brings us Aymara weaving from Bolivia and transports local viewers into a whole new world of textile delight. The Aymara are the second-largest indigenous cultural group in Bolivia, revered worldwide for the fineness of their weavings and their extensive textile history. And while Santa Fe may not be notable for indigenous arts originating south of the U.S. border, the William Siegal Gallery is. Siegal owns one of the most important collections of pre-Columbian art and holds the most extensive collection of Andean textiles in the world. How this collection came together reads like a legend of sorts. Siegal gathered these textiles as an adventurous young man traveling around the Altiplano in the 1970s. (Think Indiana Jones in a green poncho.) With an introductory note from Bolivia’s Museo Nacional de Etnografía y Folklore in hand, he ducked into remote villages on his hunt for the best textiles—i.e., old ones. Siegal met Giles Mead, then director of the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County, early on; the two merged their mutual passion for South American textiles into a partnership, with Siegal as gatherer and Mead as collector. The goal was to collect, document, and safeguard the best pieces. “We certainly felt we were preserving [them],” Siegal says. The Mead collection features items from the 18th and 19th centuries, the aesthetic pinnacle of Aymara weaving. The work is exquisitely soft and whisper-thin, as if woven with gossamer collected at dawn—a result of the downy alpaca fiber Aymara women spun into such impossibly fine thread.

Siegal gathered these textiles as an adventurous young man traveling around the Altiplano in the 1970s. . . . Think Indiana Jones in a green poncho.

Warp-faced tapestry weave has never felt so refined, and a magnifying glass shows the kaleidoscopic intricacy of the weft. The colors are all natural: many-shaded indigo, cochineal in an unusual mulberry pink, and still-bright yellows and golds made from aliso, a type of alder. Siegal explains that because the pieces are woven from alpaca, full of lanolin and multiple cuticle layers, the colors remain bright and soft over hundreds of years. Balandrán ponchos have a rectangular style and are meant to be worn long in front and back. In the gallery setting they resemble religious vestments, although they were never intended for everyday use, Siegal says. Their fine condition demonstrates their heirloom quality; these were special garments, treasured by their original owners. We are fortunate to enjoy them here in Santa Fe.

Billy Schenck: South by Southwest Sorrel Sky Gallery 125 W Palace sorrelsky.com July 25–August 8 Reception July 25, 5–7:30 pm Santa Fe artist Billy Schenck, known for his masterful paintings that boldly capture both the beauty and tragedy of the American West and are so vibrant that they possess an almost 3-D quality, showcases 15 to 20 new works in his latest solo exhibition. “What I try to do is create my own vision of the West, not necessarily based in the reality of it. I build a mythology. I use iconic characters,” Schenck says. The artist is “at the forefront of the Western pop art movement,” adds Sorrel Sky owner Shanan Campbell Wells. “His work is groundbreaking.”

PREVIEWS

Bryce Cameron Liston: Seasons of Beauty Sage Creek Gallery 421 Canyon, sagecreekgallery.com Through July 30 Lacking formal art training, Bryce Cameron Liston learned about painting from, interestingly, a master sculptor. Perhaps it was Edward J. Fraughton’s appreciation of the human form that passed to his oil-painter pupil; Liston’s delicate, almost touchable portraits of people, children, and nudes have a rich, three-dimensional quality. “When I paint, I search for timelessness,” says Liston. “My focus is mostly mood, to impart more atmosphere in the painting. These pieces are softer, more muted.” Liston’s solo show at Sage Creek Gallery comprises more than 15 new pieces, including Descending Sun, which features one of his three daughters.—Amy Gross Anne Truitt, Quick, acrylic on canvas, 22 x 42"

Olga Antonova, Composition with Plate, oil on canvas, 28 x 34"

Christina Chalmers and Olga Antonova: New Works Selby Fleetwood Gallery, 600 Canyon selbyfleetwoodgallery.com Through July 31 Though Olga Antonova notes that subject matter is “just a pretext for my execution and sensitivity to technical issues,” her still lifes seem to suggest human relationships between the depicted objects (often intricately patterned cups). Christina Chalmers works in multiple mediums—painting, sculpture, video, photography, and installation—to delve into topics such as the symbolism of clothing. Each of her paintings, she says, “is a small, personal epic.”—ET Ben Steele, Gourd-geous, oil on canvas, 30 x 25"

Anne Truitt: Paintings and Works on Paper Charlotte Jackson Fine Art, 544 S Guadalupe, charlottejackson.com Through July 27 This show features rarely seen works from the 1960s through the 1980s by Anne Truitt (1921–2004), who’s known mostly for her wooden sculptures. Born in Baltimore, Maryland, Truitt studied psychology at Bryn Mawr College and treated shell-shocked soldiers in a Boston hospital before she enrolled in Washington, D.C.’s Institute of Contemporary Art in 1948. Her paintings are striking for their deliberate colors and forms, and for the layers of emotions and experiences they evoke or bring to the surface. “Once it had occurred to me that I could use color metaphorically for content,” Truitt said, “I realized that I could go ahead with new freedom.”

Shawn Smith, Rex Ray, and Josh Garber: Bio-Morphed Turner Carroll Gallery, 725 Canyon turnercarroll.com, Through July 27 Three artists share perspectives on the natural world. Josh Garber, whose metal structures resemble aquatic organisms, says he’s “fascinated by the intricate patterns in neurology and microbiology.” The vibrant colors and shapes in Rex Ray’s abstractions are reminiscent of those seen under a microscope, and Shawn Smith investigates the relationship between nature and technology with wooden sculptures and three-dimensional prints.—ET Ben Steele: Ben Steele’s Art Circus Show Josh Garber, Flutter, stainless steel, 10 x 14 x 14" Giacobbe-Fritz Fine Art, 702 Canyon giacobbefritz.com, Through July 20 Ben Steele uses the language of visual puns to create what can be described as meta-mashup paintings. His process of employing silkscreen and other application techniques results in pieces that are—in the tradition of Warhol, one of his influences—reproducible. In the past Steele has reinterpreted classic works of art; here he turns his eye to the circus and all its components: performers, animals, spectators, and concessions.—ET

Ionescu, who is also a jeweler, sometimes incorporates silver and gold inlays into her work— which, as she puts it, deals with everyday situations from a “point of view that is a little bit skewed.”—ET

Raymond Sedillo award-winning custom guitar maker by Cristina Olds

Raymond Sedillo hadn’t picked up a guitar since he played with a garage band in his youth. Then, seven years ago, after he retired from his job working for the state, he realized that his old guitar was in need of repair. As a woodworker and furniture maker, Sedillo had fixed guitars for other people, so he relished the idea of restoring his own instrument. Today he builds guitars full time, and last year he submitted one of his pieces to Spanish Market and won first place in the mixed-media category. “I make one-of-a-kind models,” Sedillo says. “Everything is handmade, truly custom— even the necks and the fret boards.” Since he had the tools for electric guitar–making when he

century-old charmer Early 20th-century painter Fremont Ellis built this home within walking distance of Canyon Road in 1922. On slightly more than a third of an acre, the gated property has a three-bedroom, 3,730-square-foot main house and a 600-square-foot guesthouse with 12-foot-high ceilings. While the home has been updated over the years, it continues to have plenty of old-world charm. Most of the beautifully crafted wood doors are original to the home, as is the carved bannister; traditional vigas are found throughout. The large master suite has walk-in closets and a bath with ceramic tiles. The living room has double fireplaces, there’s a separate dining room, and ample patio space encourages outdoor relaxing and entertaining.

started, that’s been his focus, but Sedillo also makes acoustic guitars now. “There are some electronics involved and other technical issues with the way guitars build, like the neck grain needs to be strong enough to hold up to the pressure of the strings,” he says. Sedillo typically constructs the instruments from maple, but other hard wood that has “a good ring to it,” like walnut or cherry, works well, too. “I’ll use whatever I can find that’s suitable as a tone wood and that I also like the appearance of,” Sedillo says. “I’m working on one now whose front is made of aged oak fence. The back is maple, so it still resonates.” Building guitars “just for the joy of it” is becoming a business for Sedillo, and his guitars can currently be viewed on his Facebook page. He’s entering a new guitar in Spanish Market’s Friday night preview competition, and he’ll also have a booth during Spanish Market weekend. July 24, 2014

Globe Thistle “Taplow Blue”

flora

vineyard victory Monsoon season is here, and we all know the havoc those heavy rains can cause. On Wednesday, July 16, Estrella Del Norte Vineyard owners Richard and Eileen Reinders were knee-deep in damage that resulted from a flood the night before, but it didn’t take long for them to get their award-winning operation up and running again. “We woke up at 4 am on Wednesday morning and saw six inches of silt from the torrential storms covering our whole vineyard and orchard estate,” Richard said. “We immediately called our vineyard manager and his brother, and by 5 am we were shoveling heavy silt mud into wheelbarrows and moving it to other parts of our property. It was a mess but we got the driveways, patio areas, and courtyards cleaned and ready for customers by 1:30 pm.” Founded in 2007, Estrella Del Norte is open seven days a week and offers wine tastings, cooking classes, getaways in its on-site casitas, and more.

Pedestrians strolling between galleries along Canyon Road this summer are enjoying more than simply beautiful artwork by talented local artists: The perennial globe thistle “Taplow Blue” lends a Seussical element to many gardens there, popping its spiny, spherical head up to nearly five feet high when mature. Easy to grow in New Mexico’s sandy soil, “Taplow Blue” isn’t actually a thistle and its foliage is downy instead of prickly.

historic hideaway Three buildings make up this historic property in the heart of Galisteo. The approximately 2,900-square-foot, threebedroom, two-bathroom main home with double adobe walls was built in the early 1800s and once housed La Mancha restaurant. It’s been restored and updated while maintaining its country charm. The 622-square-foot guesthouse that was built in 2006 has a living room, bathroom, kitchen, and bedroom with a fireplace. The third building, which is 2,558 square feet and made of Rastra, used to be an art gallery and is an ideal setting for entertaining. Among its features are high ceilings, a top-of-the-line chef’s kitchen, a pantry, and a theater with surround sound and a retractable screen.

Bizet’s Carmen at Santa Fe Opera

Champagne-sipping opera-goers savored the pre-show tradition of tailgating in the parking lot before reveling in the excitement of Bizet’s Carmen, which last month kicked off Santa Fe Opera’s 58th season. This year’s production featured Argentine mezzo-soprano Daniela Mack (right) in the seductive title role for the first half of performances (June 27–July 18), with Puerto Rican soprano Ana María Martínez appearing in the second half (July 28–August 23). For the first time ever, the production includes video projections overlaid onto the set that, according to SFO’s general director, Charles MacKay, “enhance the storytelling.”—Cristina Olds July 24, 2014
