PUBLISHER’S NOTE

|

When the temperatures drop, Santa Fe doesn’t close down (as some would allege); quite the contrary. There’s so much going on here that it still seems like the high season. As you look over our calendar, you will find a wealth of things to do over the next couple of weeks. All the clubs are busy with truly outstanding shows such as Nosotros at the Palace; the Andy Kingston Quartet at El Meson; the Santa Fe Symphony’s version of Handel’s Messiah; and the 12th Annual Circus Luminous at the Lensic. Several organizations and artists’ groups are also having special sales and events (for those of you who are doing your shopping early and want to give truly unique gifts). And those are just the indoor activities. You don’t even have to wait for the downhill ski areas to open—these cool, sunny days make for nice cross-country ski outings along the Aspen Vista Trail or Black Canyon. The lower elevations still have snow-free trails, too, making for a wonderful late-autumn stroll. The point is that wintry days are not just for staying indoors; at least not in Santa Fe, where we have such a wealth of exciting activities. The only difference between now and the high season is that you’ll need a somewhat warmer coat. Go out and enjoy it all.

Edge

Santa Fe Studios sets the Old West scene for new Amazon drama The Santa Fe area is still the leading lady of Old West film scenery. Just this week, Santa Fe Studios announced that Amazon Prime has begun streaming the series Edge, the latest in locally filmed Westerns. Written, directed, and produced by Shane Black (who is also known for Iron Man 3, among other titles), Edge is based on the novels by Terry Harknett (and written under the pen name George G. Gilman). Initial Amazon Prime reviews suggest that the pilot follows the original novels closely, which bodes well for fans of both the books and the pilot: during its “Amazon Pilot Season,” the company is basing its pickup decision on how well Edge is rated by viewers. As promotional material notes, Santa Feans are encouraged to vote thumbs up for Edge in order to protect burgeoning local film employment and production-related income—so don’t let a lady down. —Anne Maclachlan Edge is available on demand through Amazon Prime.

STEPHEN LANG

Potter Jody Naranjo, sculptor Cliff Fragua, painter Nocona Burgess, and photographer Zoe Urness are among the 200 artists whose works are on display during the 10th annual Winter Indian Market on Thanksgiving weekend. This smaller version of the summer extravaganza features pieces by some of Santa Fe Indian Market’s award-winning artists exhibited in the more intimate setting of the Santa Fe Community Convention Center. The three-day event includes performances by flutist Robert Tree Cody, award-winning vocalist and recording artist Shelley Morningsong, and dancer and Nocona Burgess working in his studio. storyteller Fabian Fontenelle. There’s also a silent auction that includes gift certificates and decorated Christmas trees donated from businesses and individuals. “Our most popular trees had pottery and miniature paintings on them,” says SWAIA’s chief operating officer Dallin Maybee. “Last year we had 15 of them, but this year we’re shooting for up to 20 trees.” —Emily Van Cleve

2014 Trash Fashion Show contestant Holly Hughes in "Goddess of Gratitude" made from packaging from Thanksgiving dinner feasts.

Old car and tractor parts scavenged from arroyos; dusty appliances and clocks found in thrift stores; and torn beach umbrellas that have been tucked away in storage units are all transformed into artistic treasures to be showcased at the 17th annual Recycle Santa Fe Art Festival. The weekend event kicks off on November 20 with the very popular Trash Fashion & Costume Contest, where up to 50 people model creations made from 75 percent recycled materials. Expect to see everything from newspaper, plastic bags, and old prom dresses to jewelry made out of tin cans and appliance gears. Visitors can even create their own recycled masterpieces on Saturday and Sunday at the Make and Take area, which is full of all kinds of odds and ends. The festival’s main event is the recycled art market featuring the juried works of 100 artists from around the country. “Many of these artists make their living from selling recycled art,” explains festival director Sarah Pierpont. “What they come up with is really interesting.”—Emily Van Cleve Recycle Santa Fe Art Festival, November 20–22; $5–$20 Friday, free Saturday and Sunday; Santa Fe Community Convention Center, 201 W Marcy, recyclesantafe.org November 19, 2015 NOW 3

Santa Fe’s many restaurants and markets offer a range of ready-made Thanksgiving options, like this colorful bird from Anasazi Restaurant.

IF YOU CAN'T HANDLE the heat and need to get out of the kitchen this Thanksgiving, rejoice, because Santa Fe has a number of options. Some are best for those who don’t like to cook, others for those who don’t The NFL has an all-day Thanksgiving lineup scheduled, even like to do the dishes. with games in Detroit, Green Bay, and Dallas. Before you even begin eating (in or out), work it all off with the Atalaya Turkey Trot, which benefits Atalaya Elementary School. The race begins at the elementary school near Museum Hill at 8:30 am on Thanksgiving Day. Registration costs $10 to $35 at newmexicosportsonline.com. With your choice of the 1K or 5K run, you’re getting your own head start in burning off the celebratory calories.   Afterwards, instead of heading straight for the kitchen, try the market to see what’s already cooking. Both Whole Foods Market and Sprouts Farmers Market offer prepared meals. Prices vary, of course, depending on the dishes and the number of diners. Expect to spend $10 to $20 per person. Keep in mind that the average cost of preparing the food at home is about $5 per person. Letting someone else do the work can free up more time, but it'll cost a few extra bucks that might be worth it. One advantage of staying home is that there are plenty of sports to watch. The National Football League has three games scheduled beginning at 10:30 MST. Altogether, that's at least nine hours of football. Non-sports fans can binge watch on Thanksgiving too. Networks are playing marathons that feature everything from sci-fi to sitcoms. If that's too much television, and all of grandma's gin is gone, your option may be to try a restaurant. Ditch the prep and cleaning work entirely and have one of Santa Fe's eateries stuff the turkey. A number of restaurants are open, including Geronimo, Coyote Café, Eloisa, Santacafé, Dinner for Two, Anasazi Restaurant at the Inn of the Anasazi, Terra at the Four Seasons Resort Rancho Encantado, and La Casa Sena. Some of these restaurants offer prix fixe menus, and some offer to-go menus. Reservations are recommended. The day after Thanksgiving rewards survivors with many possibilities: skiing and other snow sports; the annual Christmas tree-lighting ceremony on the Plaza at sunset; and plenty of shopping at the weekend Santa Fe Winter Indian Market at the Convention Center, beginning at 6 pm (there’s a $5 to $10 admission fee). There might also be some leftover turkey to eat.—Jason Strykowski

Santa Fe photographer Lisa Law was there. She was there for the sixties, there for Woodstock, there for the emerging talents of Bob Dylan and Wavy Gravy, and there for the love-in and peace movements. Law and her legendary bus (acquired in 1967 and named Silver, of course) documented the 1960s firsthand, and the result is Flashing on the Sixties, a Tribal Document, a film to be shown at El Museo Cultural in the Railyard on December 2. Law, who also documents Santa Fe happenings for NOW magazine, will be on hand for a question-and-answer session after the presentation.—AM

For the past 12 years that Wise Fool New Mexico has presented Circus Luminous at the Lensic Performing Arts Center during Thanksgiving weekend, the organization’s cofounder and artistic director Amy Christian has either directed or performed in the show. This year, however, knee surgery has put her on the sidelines. “We approached Danielle Reddick, who has done a lot of theater in Santa Fe, and asked her if she would write and direct the show,” explains Christian. “Since her background is not in the circus arts, I’ve helped her along the way.” The 12th Annual Circus Luminous, a family-friendly performance about seeing the harmony, balance, and beauty of what’s right under our noses, features many Wise Fool aerialists, acrobats, cyclers, and dancers. Also joining the troupe are youth performers from Northern New Mexico, including the 3 HC Holy Faith breakdancers. Jeremy Bleich and an orchestra of local musicians provide the show’s original live music.—EVC 12th Annual Circus Luminous, November 27, 7 pm; November 28, 2 pm and 7 pm; November 29, 4 pm; $10–$30; half price for kids under 12; Lensic Performing Arts Center, 211 W San Francisco, ticketssantafe.org

Anasazi

DOUGLAS MERRIAM

When Chef Juan Bochenski took the helm of the Anasazi Restaurant, Bar and Lounge at Rosewood Inn at the Anasazi at the end of 2011, he inherited a menu that featured an ahi tuna tacos appetizer. Made with seared Hawaiian tuna and covered with a combination of spices, the three-taco dish remains on the lunch and bar menus because it’s so popular. “Our guests love its spiciness, its freshness, and the crispness of the taco,” says Bochenski. “What I’ve learned from working around the world, and particularly in France, is that tradition and quality (in food) are important. Don’t change an item on the menu if it’s really good.” A black bean purée enhances the thin and crispy taco, which consists of a deep fried wonton wrapper. The tacos are then topped with fresh mango salsa, sour cream, and cilantro. “People come to the restaurant and ask, ‘Where are my crispy tuna tacos?’ all the time,” Bochenski says. —Emily Van Cleve Anasazi Restaurant 113 Washington rosewoodhotels.com

WORKING IN BRONZE is a relatively new endeavor for Santa Clara Pueblo potter Jeff Roller, the son of award-winning potter Toni Roller and grandson of Margaret Tafoya, the matriarch of Santa Clara Pueblo pottery. Roller made the leap to metalwork in 2012, although he had thought about casting pieces in bronze for years. “At the recommendation of a friend, I visited artist-owned foundries in Oregon,” says Roller, who has shown his work at the Wheelwright Museum in Santa Fe and the National Museum of Jeff Roller, traditional black water jar, clay, 15 x 9" the American Indian (part of the Smithsonian) in Washington, D.C. “The first two bronze pieces were vessels with animals protruding from them. One of the two won first place in sculpture at the 2013 Indian Market. I also won a blue ribbon for a bronze piece the following year.” A selection of Roller’s pottery and bronzes is on display in a special three-day exhibition at Worrell Gallery from November 27 through 29. As part of the show, Roller unveils a new work that has been one year in the making—an untitled, almost life-size clay model of a bighorn sheep, a mountain lion, and an eagle that will be cast in bronze and tentatively offered in an edition of 12. Detailed sculpted animal figures on pot lids and sculpted animal busts that emerge from pots are among Roller’s most elaborate and delicate pieces. Roller doesn’t hesitate to put animal figures on pots as small as three inches high or as tall as two feet. “It’s been an adjustment to learn how to work with oil-based clay (for casting),” says Roller. “It never dries, so it’s a whole different technique for me. The reason I want to do some of my work in 22

STUDIO

Jack Dunn from fire to flicks In 2011, a wildfire and subsequent mudslide doomed the venerable Dixon's Apple Orchard near Cochiti Pueblo. Painter Jack Dunn found the image both heartbreaking and captivating. He has since used the area as the inspiration for a number of Orchard King paintings, including the one scheduled to be used in December for the 2015 Santa Fe Film Festival poster (which is to be presented, with other Dunn originals, at an Acosta Strong Fine Art reception November 20). This iteration of his signature series capitalizes on many of the charms that drew Dunn to New Mexico initially. “I was painting back east and everything tended to look like a big green blob to me,” says Dunn. New Mexico possesses “hard, rarefied light from low humidity,” perfectly suiting his color-rich style. Like one of his great influences, Georgia O'Keeffe, Dunn finds vibrancy in desolate locales, using Dixon much as O'Keeffe once used skulls.—Jason Strykowski Heading to the Festival, November 20, 6–8 pm, Acosta Strong Fine Art, 640 Canyon, johnbstrong.com Orchard King variations, such as this work in progress (rightmost easel), figure heavily in Dunn’s body of work; Cerro Pedernal near Abiquiú (left and center easels) is another favored subject.

Compositions come together quickly for Dunn, often in a matter of minutes.

Trained as an engineer, Dunn takes a mathematical approach to the elements and spacing of each painting. His crisply colored work will be featured this December as the official poster of the 2015 Santa Fe Film Festival.

CONTEMPORARY ARTIST Bruce Cody has honed his craft to such a fine point that art aficionados who gaze upon his dark and rainy urban scenes may turn up their collars against the weather. “[French painter Edgar] Dégas said, ‘Painting is easy when you don’t know how, but very difficult when you do,’” observes Cody, who has painted full time since 1984. “When I started painting urban images in high school, it was a real struggle to get the sense of space and light. . . . There’s an awkwardness that gradually becomes more accurate, and there’s a point when that accuracy needs to become more expressive.” Early in his career, Cody focused on mastering abstract painting to improve his sense of balance and tension within the subject matter. Now, his clear expression of style is projected on the canvas through color changes and gradation, some subtle and some more obvious, but always poignantly realistic. His Festival in the Rain depicts a Denver, Colorado, theater marquee and neon sign that Cody says he photographed to capture the essence and mood created by the reflections and patterns of the water in the darkness, and which “opened another range of ideas” for the artist. The artist grew up in Casper, Wyoming (where his father was a sign painter who would have been a portrait painter if he hadn’t wanted to move his family away from California). Neon signs and

Bruce Cody, Festival in the Rain, oil on linen, 30 x 40"

vintage automobiles are a few elements of a bygone American West that Cody prefers to depict. “I’m trying to capture a sense of what it is being in America,” he says. “I like people to see [the locations] as being anyplace in the West and not a specific town, with a sensation that we’ve all seen those places but don’t know exactly where.” Cody takes road trips to photograph or paint small studies of the timeless American architecture that he says all still exists. “I’m attracted to the geometry of architecture,” he explains. “If I go out to do landscape, it seems like I keep looking for a building—that’s my interest in the human presence in the land.” CityScapes: Bruce Cody and Jon deMartin, through November 30, Lacuna Galleries, 124 W Palace, lacunagalleries.com November 19, 2015 NOW 25

Santa Fe Six Winter 2015–16 Show, Art Exchange Gallery, 60 E San Francisco, Ste 10, aegallery.com, December 1– January 31, reception December 4, 4–6 pm Trinon Crouch, Jim Griffith, Mike Mahon, Laurence Seredowych, Jeff Tabor, and Richard Tashjian are the half-dozen artists sharing top billing at the recurring downtown exhibition Santa Fe Six. The shows, featuring a mostly unchanging crew of exhibitors, have cropped up sporadically at Art Exchange for nearly a decade. In this edition, all are painters except Griffith, who has made a 40-plus-year career in Santa Fe crafting vivid, often comical sculptures from wood and mixed media. The five others represent distinct approaches to painting, from the vast color swaths of Crouch and Tabor, to Seredowych’s careful still lifes, to Tashjian’s and Mahon’s detail-heavy yet stylized landscapes.—Dylan Syverson

In the Looking Glass, Verve Gallery of Photography, 209 E Marcy, vervegallery.com, through January 23 Each of this show’s three featured photographic artists—Micky Hoogendijk, Maggie Taylor, and Aline Smithson—creates work through her own distinct process, addressing the limitations of portraiture and the interplay between photographer and subject. Hoogendijk, a Netherlands native who began her career on the other end of Maggie Taylor, Have a Nice Day, archival digital the lens as an actress-model, pigment print, 36 x 36" uses color and contrast to evoke mood in her unconventional portraits. Photographed under carefully calculated lighting, often underwater, her subjects become symbols of vulnerability, freedom, strength, and fear. Taylor’s work riffs on the conventions of 19th-century daguerreotypes, of which she is a collector. These early long-exposure photographs demanded long sit times and flat, stone-still facial expressions, resulting in a common somber iconography across the medium. Taylor digitally augments the sepia-toned originals and adds surrealistic flourishes to create ironically light and colorful compositions. Like Taylor, Smithson is concerned with challenging viewers’ preconceptions, seeking “moments that are at once familiar, yet unexpected.” Influenced by Japanese aesthetics and frequently employing palettes suggestive of Technicolor, she aims to use single-subject portraits to tell a story that extends beyond the frame. Though her pieces take “only seconds to capture,” she writes, “I spend hours, days and even years feeling connected to the person on the other side of the lens.”—DS

SINCE BECOMING Nambé Trading Post’s curator in May 2014, Cathy Smith has reinvigorated the 75-year-old destination along the High Road to Taos as a place for one-of-akind gifts. “Historically, trading posts were a place to find rare and exotic goods, and to exchange cultures. All of Santa Fe used to be that. …I was interested in bringing back that great iconography and history to the shopping experience,” she says. Smith brings a wealth of knowledge to the post. She grew up in western South Dakota, refining her skills in porcupine quillwork with relatives on the Cheyenne River Reservation. She continued to use these arts by contibuting work for Geronimo, Nambé Trading Post stocks a wide variety of Southwest-style Comanche Moon, and Longmire—to name a few— items, with handmade originals from Cathy and Jennifer Jesse using her expertise to fashion historically accurate Smith available alongside antiques and traditional decorations. costumes. Now she’s making available items from her vast archive, including a porcupine-quilled buckskin dress from Dances with Wolves ($6,500). Everything in the trading post is authentic—from the old log cabin in which it’s housed, to antique items such as a war shirt from the 1830s and a Lakota dress yoke from the 1880s. Although the post looks like a museum, all the unique finds there are for sale, including Nambé, Acoma, and San Ildefonso pottery; Navajo rugs; Zuni katsinas; and the same Murano glass beads traded to and among Native tribes in the 1870s. Smith sells these both loose and beaded into medicine and evening bags (starting at $125) for women. New works also abound. Inspired by the ledger drawings of the 1800s, Smith draws her own designs on antique paper. The shop also features handmade jewelry by Cathy’s daughter Jennifer Jesse Smith, who is known for beautifully carved silver dragonfly and feather pendants (average price $300–$500). The post is the only place outside of Galisteo to find the micaceous-clay pottery of Denise Lynch, which follows the style of pre-contact Anasazi vessels, another matchless gift at the revitalized trading post. —Ashley M.

Shepherd’s film, shot over 10 years in six different countries, unflinchingly provides viewers with an exclusive peek at life on the red carpet by surrounding his audience with a whirlwind of press, paparazzi, pomp and circumstance. He blends live footage, animation, graphics, and paparazzi action figures with a dizzying cast of famous co-stars and secondary characters. From Michael Moore to Madonna, Kim Kardashian to Tom Cruise, Gene Simmons to Quentin Tarantino—and many others—Red Carpet Burn also features an extensive cast of non-celebrities such as Marjorie, a supermodel and self-proclaimed “world authority on red carpets.” Shepherd states, “I set out to show the glamour and mystique of being a celebrity on the red carpet when it occurred to me that perhaps I could ‘create’ celebrity.” Red Carpet Burn captures the unfiltered, behind-the-scenes reality of what it takes to become a celebrity—and its unanticipated consequences.­—Stephanie Love Showtimes: Jean Cocteau Cinema, December 2, 4 pm Violet Crown Theater, December 5, 7 pm Center for Contemporary Arts Santa Fe, December 6, 4:45 pm 28
