SHOPPING IN SANTA FE

From the time of the ancient Anasazi, the Santa Fe area has been a trading center. The Santa Fe Trail is synonymous with the romance of the old west, and from the time of New Mexico statehood in 1912, Santa Fe has been a multicultural art center and shoppers’ paradise.

publisher’s note

|

Memorial Day Weekend, and the kickoff to the summer season, is here. Thank goodness. Hopefully the rain is behind us, the hills will be turning green from all the moisture they’ve received, and Santa Fe’s natural and abundant beauty can shine for us all this weekend. And what a great weekend it is. Friday night offers a full slate of gallery openings all over Santa Fe; local clubs have great live music; and a number of special art shows are taking place, namely Native Treasures—a large annual market held in the convention center that features a variety of works by Native American artists. And if you were thinking the weekend ended on Sunday, remember that Monday is Memorial Day, which means you have another full day to explore the art, music, and markets around town. Somewhere in between all these activities, be sure to honor our nation’s lost heroes. That’s why we have this holiday in the first place. The sun is on our back, we’re feeling a bit warmer, and we can fully enjoy all of the great things happening in Santa Fe this weekend. DAVID ROBIN

crisis on Ethan Hawke’s face

The quandary of killing via robot is deconstructed in Good Kill, its components laid out for us to assess. And despair over. We’ve seen good movies tackle post-traumatic stress disorder in soldiers fighting the war on terror—a bomb disposal expert in The Hurt Locker, a sniper in American Sniper—but Good Kill might be the most interesting example because its afflicted soldier, Major Thomas Egan, is piloting drones from thousands of miles away. He rains death from blue skies over Yemen and then clocks out and drives home to his wife and kids in an American suburb. The psychology is Ethan Hawke and January Jones fascinating. Aren’t we better off star in Good Kill. fighting this way, with less military lives put in danger? Or have we turned the profound act of killing during war into a video game? Ethan Hawke plays Egan, who did six tours flying jets in Afghanistan and Iraq before coming home to pilot drones from Las Vegas. “I miss the fear,” he says. He feels like a coward, and intense self-loathing is driving him to guzzle vodka and lash out at his family. Good Kill is set in 2010, when drone killings spiked after the CIA took over the program and watered down criteria from dropping bombs. Less surveillance, more missiles. In one scene, Egan destroys a compound with a suspected terrorist inside, and when people arrive with shovels to dig out survivors, the boss in Langley (over speakerphone) orders another strike in the same spot. Egan and his team wonder aloud if they’ve become like the terrorists. The film’s best trick is to dramatize action while debating the merits of drone strikes like a documentary or nightly news roundtable: Didn’t the president ordering these hits win a Nobel Peace Prize? How can we bomb countries we’re not at war with? We’ve made children fear the sky. Hawke’s face throughout is anguished. His character’s feelings aren’t ambiguous. He may say “Good kill” after every strike he triggers, but he doesn’t mean it. He hates what he’s doing. It’s wrong.—Phil Parker Good Kill opens at CCA on May 22. 1050 Old Pecos Trl, ccasantafe.org

German-born mezzo-soprano Adrienne Haan comes to Santa Fe for the first time to perform her cabaret act Between Fire and Ice for the Santa Fe Jewish Film Festival’s opening night concert on May 24. The dramatic and lively one-woman show brings to life the arts and liberation movements that were stretching their bounds in Berlin during the 1920s and ’30s. “Performing for the Jewish Film Festival is a great joy because this year they are featuring the film noir of Germany and Austria in the ’20s, during the Weimar Republic era,” says Haan, who graduated from the American Academy of Dramatic Arts and studied at The Juilliard School and the Cologne School of Music and Dance. “My soirée Between Fire and Ice features the music of that era and composers who themselves and whose music was considered ‘degenerate,’ a term created by the Nazis to define a variety of music and art they considered harmful or decadent.” Currently residing in New York City and Bonn, Germany, Haan is a citizen of Germany and Luxembourg and uses her language skills to dramatize multiple characters with accuracy in five languages. For both of her Santa Fe performances, she will be accompanied by pianist Richard Danley, her longtime musical director. —Cristina Olds

The Moment of YES!

by Ashle y M. Big ge rs

an original production by Theater Grottesco centers on communication and common culture Theater Grottesco raises the curtain on its first new production since 2012 with The Moment of YES!, which premieres May 21 at the Santa Fe Playhouse. With this show, the troupe returns to its roots, championing English theater and film director Peter Brook’s practice of putting performers on an empty stage. Doing so “shows the power of what actors can do without a lot of technical support,” says John Flax, Theater Grottesco’s artistic director and the codirector of YES!, alongside Kent Kirkpatrick. “The show starts with a nod to [Brook] as the actors come on stage and discover the space.” The YES! cast includes Danielle Reddick, a veteran of Stomp!; Eric Kupers, coartistic director of Oakland’s Dandelion Dancetheater; and Tara Khozein and Apollo Garcia, both Santa Fe natives and graduates of France’s L’École Internationale de Théâtre Jacques Lecoq. Khozein and Garcia grew up watching Theater Grottesco productions, and this is the first time either of them is appearing with the group.

From left: Apollo Garcia, Danielle Reddick, Eric Kupers, and Tara Khozein star in Theater Grottesco’s original production The Moment of YES!

Through interwoven stories, the cast explores communication, which emerged as a theme as a group of six Theater Grottesco members developed the show’s concept for more than a year. “There are so many levels of communication—internal monologues, internal dialogues that one has with one’s self, dialogues we have with others without words, and then dialogues that, when words are spoken, don’t express what the conversation really is,” Flax says. One scene that explores the art of learning a new language develops syntax of its own as gestures progress into dances and those dances connect to new vignettes. Invoking the traditional form of Greek tragedies, the performance, as it unfolds, sees the actors—and the audience—become witnesses. “We tell the story as though all the people on stage experienced the story together,” Flax says. “The other people on stage are there in the spirit of ‘the moment of yes,’ remembering it together.” The Moment of YES!, May 21–June 7, Thursday–Saturday 7:30 pm, Sundays 2 pm, $10–$25, Gala Opening Night Celebration, May 22, $100, Santa Fe Playhouse, 142 E De Vargas, santafeplayhouse.org May 21, 2015 NOW 17


Native Treasures the 11th annual event showcases work by acclaimed Native American artists working in various mediums by Cri stina Olds On May 23, the Native Treasures: Indian Arts Festival kicks off its 11th year of celebrating the work of top Native American artists—such as Nocona Burgess, Kathleen Wall, Estella Loretto, and many others—while raising funds for Museum Hill’s Museum of Indian Arts and Culture (MIAC). One of the event’s annual traditions is bestowing a Living Treasure award on an artist, and this year the honor goes to two people: sisters Keri Ataumbi and Teri Greeves, who will be celebrated during a Friday night fundraising cocktail party at the Santa Fe Community Convention Center. “Keri and Teri’s museum-quality work, although different in medium and form, represents some of the essential values of the Native Treasures: Indian Arts Festival, including the storytelling that is an intrinsic quality of their work,” MIAC director Della Warrior said in a statement. Ataumbi creates contemporary gold and silver jewelry that she compares to small sculpture and has what she calls “a conceptual narrative exploration” at its core. Her extensive collections of earrings, belt buckles, sunglasses, and other items feature detailed imagery of animals, sea creatures, insects, and geometric shapes that give a nod to cultural and historical themes related to her Kiowa background. “Our family, our heritage, and the aesthetic our ancestors have passed down to us informs my work,” she says. Greeves’s beadwork also tells stories related to her Kiowa culture, and although she works on cuffs, deerskin tapestries, and

Nocona Burgess, Llano Estacado Cuervo, acrylic on canvas, 60 x 48"

cloth tepees, her most recognized pieces are her beaded tennis shoes. “Kiowa people,” she notes, “have almost always adorned their footwear . . . [as] an expression of self, of society, of tribe, and of humanity.” Both artists’ work can be found in the collections of notable museums, such as the Heard Museum and the Museum of Contemporary Native Arts for Ataumbi and the British Museum and the National Museum of the American Indian for Greeves. Native Treasures: Indian Arts Festival, Friday night benefit, May 22, 5:30–7:30 pm, $100; May 23, 9 am–5 pm, $10–$20; May 24, 10 am–5 pm, free, Santa Fe Community Convention Center, 201 W Marcy, nativetreasures.org

Del Charro Saloon

douglas merriam

Best happy hour, best affordable dining, and best cocktails are among the awards regularly won by Del Charro Saloon, located in the Inn of the Governors. The downtown eatery’s go-to food for happy hour (or any time, really) is the green chile cheeseburger that Chef Elio Licano prepares to perfection. Loaded with green chile from Hatch, New Mexico, the half-pound burger is a juicy patty of grass-fed, locally raised beef that’s topped with melted cheddar. Served on a toasted bun with a fresh stack of french fries, this chile cheeseburger is a satisfying springtime nosh best enjoyed on the enclosed patio with a house margarita. —Cristina Olds Del Charro Saloon, 101 W Alameda, delcharro.com

anniversary celebration STEVE FAILOWS

Th e Longwort h G alle r y honor s its pa st w hi le lo oki ng to its fut ur e by Emily Va n C le ve

Enter the world of metaphorical realism at The Longworth Gallery’s anniversary celebration, during which gallery owner Lisa Rodgers celebrates the 20 magical, metaphorical, and realistic artists she represents—and her many clients. The festivities, held on May 22, are open to the public and include beer, wine, hors d’oeuvres, and Spanish classical guitar music. Many artists—including locals Barbara Woods and H. Tom Thomas—will be present, giving collectors a chance to chat with the folks behind the art. Scottsdale, Arizona, artist Steve Failows will not only be at the party but will also present a kaleidoscope workshop the following day. Failows takes tubes, cones, stained glass, and other materials and transforms them into functional works of art (i.e., his kaleidoscopes). “They’re incredibly popular,” says Rodgers, who usually sells at least one kaleidoscope per day. “It’s hard for Steve to keep up with the demand.” Failows makes two different styles of kaleidoscopes. The Infinity series has a tapered ceramic cone that rests on top of a base of wood, 24

fossil, or quartz crystal. The cone is able to swivel, come off the base, and be held in the hand. The turntable style, which is called Infinity on Steroids, has a Brazilian agate base and a ceramic scope that is either tapered or cylindrical and angled down to point at a rotating dish. “You can put whatever you want in the dish and view it magnified,” Rodgers says. “People look at everything from keys, rose petals, sea shells, and coins to cell phones, fishing lures, sand, popcorn, and jewelry.” Anniversary celebration, May 22, 5–8 pm, free, kaleidoscope workshop, May 23, 11 am–4 pm, The Longworth Gallery, 530 Canyon, thelongworthgallery.com


New Mexico Forward by Ashle y M. Big g e r s

History is a patchwork of culture and memory, as artist Robert T. Ritter expresses in New Mexico Forward 2015, opening May 22 at Ventana Fine Art. In his latest body of work, which took two years to create, the artist deconstructs imagery that’s helped shape New Mexico history and culture and presents it via a fresh aesthetic that defies simple description. Are the 28 works in the show paintings? Tapestries? Mixed-media works? These are some of the questions Ritter hopes to elicit with his work. “I’m trying to create a new aesthetic that makes people question the how, when, and where [of the artistic process],” Ritter says. “That’s what you have to do to hit on the new and bring art forward into the 21st century.” When creating his latest series, Ritter drew upon specific works that defined Robert T. Ritter, Turquoise Pony, oil New Mexican culture in on canvas and burlap, 60 x 48” previous eras: striking and

stoic photographs of Native Americans by Edward S. Curtis (1868–1952) and retablos by Pedro Antonio Fresquís (1780–1825), whose precise drawings earned him the nickname the “Calligraphic Santero.” Ritter literally ripped those images apart and reconstructed them with oil painting, color masking, and roughly stitched burlap on canvas, thereby creating a new visual and social context. In a piece titled Kiowa, which features a portrait of a Native American man, Ritter was drawn to the strength of the man’s face. However, Ritter, who’s an architect as well as an artist, enhanced the simple image with his technique. “The composition created with the color masking and the [stitching] lines that come off of it are what made it interesting for me.” Another of Ritter’s pieces, Mission, “pushes the edge of what’s relevant,” he says. After scrutinizing the components of the original image, he redacted the face of the haloed subject (who’s riding a horse), emphasized the cerulean blue color of his clothes and saddle, and set that color against gray and beige tones, making the historical image seem at home in today’s contemporary art world and society.

Adob e G al le r y high ligh ts wor ks fr om Sa n Il defon s o Pue blo by As hle y M . Big g e r s Today, black-on-black pottery is synonymous with San Ildefonso Pueblo (located 23 miles northwest of Santa Fe), but that wasn’t always the case. Tracking the development of black ware through today’s creations, which have evolved to include more graffito and inlay, a new show at Adobe Gallery called One Hundred Years of Pottery and Paintings from San Ildefonso features some 30 pieces of vintage pottery from acclaimed artists such as Maria Martinez (1881–1980) and her grandson Tony Da (1940–2008). The show also highlights a perhaps lesser-known art form from the Pueblo—painting—and celebrates works from artists such as José Disiderio (J. D.) Roybal (1922–1978), who was known for his depictions of koshare, and Tonita Vigil Peña (1893–1949), the only woman among a group of artists who referred to themselves as the San Ildefonso Self-Taught Group. “We don’t see much painting coming out of San Ildefonso these days,” says gallery director Scott Smudsky. “What little we do is still in the traditional style.”

Adobe Gallery acquired the 60-some early-20thcentury works featured in the show from local and national collections. One Hundred Years of Pottery and Paintings from San Ildefonso, May 22–June 30, reception May 22, 5–7 pm, Adobe Gallery, 221 Canyon, adobegallery.com

Lyrical Expression Jav ie r Lóp ez B a r bo sa s e eks to el icit joy wit h hi s n e w s how at Wa xla nde r G al le r y by Emily Va n C le ve

Is it a red day or a blue day, Santa Fe abstract painter Javier López Barbosa asks himself before he begins a new work. Once a color is selected, a painting starts to take form. “The process is simply a connection between my best feelings and the blank canvas,” he explains. “I hardly ever have a definite idea of what I’m going to paint. I just let my will for creativity take over my physical body to do what it has to do.” The three dozen paintings featured in Barbosa’s show Lyrical Expression at Waxlander Art Gallery & Sculpture Garden are new works created to elicit joy and happiness. It’s all about feeling good, Barbosa says. If a viewer smiles when looking at a painting, he’s done his job. Smiling wasn’t easy for Barbosa during his childhood in Monterrey, Mexico, where, he says, his home life was rough. The best part of his youth was the drawing and painting he did to deal with his emotions, even though he’d often get into trouble for painting on the walls of his bedroom. Barbosa became interested in working in abstraction during elementary school after he saw an abstract painting on the wall of an upscale Monterrey home. 26

“I knew then and there what I wanted to do,” he says. At the age of 18 Barbosa left home and moved to Texas, where he started painting regularly. Four years later, in 1990, he settled in Santa Fe and began building a body of work—smooth and glossy paintings with alternating layers of paint and glazing medium—for which he is well known. For several decades he used oils; a few years ago, however, after repeatedly experiencing breathing problems and dizziness in the studio, he switched to acrylics. “Painting every day,” he says, “reminds me of the kind of person I am and the kind of person I always want to be.” Javier López Barbosa: Lyrical Expression, through June 1, reception May 22, 5–8 pm, Waxlander Art Gallery and Sculpture Garden, 622 Canyon, waxlander.com

Approximately 11 miles northwest of the Plaza, this 60-acre property is sprinkled with juniper and piñon trees and offers everything an equestrian could ask for: a riding arena; runs; and a six-stall barn with a tack room, a wash bay, and plenty of storage. (If that sounds like a lot to manage, a caretaker’s house provides ample accommodations for ranch help.) Architect Charles Johnson designed the main house, which was built in 1987 and features curved walls, brick floors, vigas, latillas, and custom tiling. A courtyard has a natural boulder water feature and a small pond. List price: $1.295 million; contact: Lori Lanier, Lori Lanier Real Estate, 505-577-3888, lorilanierrealestate.com

Graduations. Weddings. Babies. Birthdays. The season of many significant life events is upon us, and thankfully there’s a more intimate option for purchasing Congratulations! and Thank You! cards than a big-box supermarket or drugstore.

Outdoor Vision Fest On May 1, Santa Fe University of Art and Design hosted its fifth annual evening of projections and outdoor art installations. Approximately 2,700 attendees selfguided themselves among more than 50 design, animation, full-motion video, video-mapping, motion-graphics, and interactive multimedia works. The evening included a performance by student electric band The Maya Spectra (pictured above), whose single “Music Box” was recently described in Entertainment Weekly as “paranoid funk decorated with flourishes of modern EDM and a wailing, fuzzed-out guitar solo worthy of Prince.” Terry Borst, a member of SFUAD’s film school faculty, says the event has a lasting impact. “The success of OVF lies not only in its special one-night-only experience, but in the opportunities throughout the year for student artistry to be reprised across the city of Santa Fe and in other venues. Additionally, OVF alums are already making a difference in Santa Fe’s artistic and cultural landscape, and their impact will only grow in years to come.”—Whitney Spivey May 21, 2015 NOW 29
