PUBLISHER’S NOTE

|

FROM ONE WEEK to the next, there’s always something different to do during the Santa Fe summer. In our last issue, I chronicled the wide variety of activities that come to us each week. This time, let me draw your attention to three unique events that speak to who we are as a community. First, the annual Whitehawk Ethnographic and Antique Indian Art Shows present an exciting display of international ethnographic and tribal antiques. These museum-quality artifacts are shown by a wonderful group of dealers who are committed to educating collectors and visitors alike. They’ll share provenance, stories and information about each of the historical pieces on display, bring deeper meaning to each artifact. As Folk Art Festival-goers know, Santa Feans love this kind of thing. Next: We Santa Feans love our dogs; thus, we’re a very caninefriendly community. Dogs and their beloved owners will be at the Santa Fe Downs track Saturday for the Dog Days of Summer, a full day of live music, food trucks and pet-friendly activities for the whole family.  Doesn’t this sound like fun? This is a benefit for the Santa Fe Animal Shelter, but I think it is we humans who will benefit the most. And finally, on Saturday night, jazz virtuoso Chris Ishee performs at El Mesón.  Chris is my piano teacher; I’m a huge fan of his skills and musical energy. He’s played with major stars, and we’re so blessed to have him among us right here at home to hear his unique blend of jazz.  Like most weekends in Santa Fe, we have so many options of fun activities and they’re all in the pages of this magazine. Enjoy. On August 1 in the Railyard, Santa Fe City Councilor Signe Lindell proclaimed the Santa Fe Farmers Market as the USDA’s pick to host the kickoff ceremony for the 16th annual National Farmers Market Week.

Color Dash 5K Runners in the Color Dash 5K will be living Santa Fe’s Summer of Color to the fullest when they become moving Jackson Pollock paintings on August 15. Each registrant receives a white T-shirt and a nontoxic color dye packet; at the conclusion of the 3.1mile course at the Downs, runners will throw their packets in the air in an explosion of neon pink, green, and blue. Dogs are welcome on the course to join in the multi-hued mania—the race kicks off the inaugural Dog Days of Summer to benefit Santa Fe Animal Shelter and Humane Society. The festivities also include live music from Nosotros, Anthony Leon and The Chain, and Reviva; food trucks and craft beer from Santa Fe Brewing Company; and the Mayor’s Mutt Show, with categories such as best costume and fastest agility run.—Ashley M.

Martin Sexton

When he was 14 years old, Martin Sexton bought a cheap guitar and subsequently joined several rock bands during high school. Wanting to find his own voice, he left home at 22 and started busking on the streets around Harvard Square in Cambridge, Massachusetts. In the Journey, his collection of self-produced demo recordings, sold 20,000 copies during that time. On Sunday, August 16, Sexton will perform his signature American music—influenced by soul, gospel, country, and rock—beside the landmark Water Tower in the Railyard Plaza. The show is free, so there’s no excuse not to be there. AMP Concerts presents Martin Sexton, August 16, 7 pm, free, Santa Fe Railyard Plaza, 1607 Paseo de Peralta, ampconcerts.org 4

MORE THAN 65 ETHNOGRAPHIC art dealers and 70 antique Indian art dealers are slated to open their traveling trunks this week for the Whitehawk Antique Shows, August 13–18, at the Santa Fe Community Convention Center. The dealers travel the globe for the one-of-a-kind items available, from a 19th-century fire bag from the Tahltan tribe in British Columbia to a carved Buddha bust from the Tang period (A.D. 618–907). Still, the dealers will consider acquiring from local collectors, too. “Most dealers are open to buying as well as selling…Buying, selling, trading—it’s all part of what makes the show so much fun. The dealers are also a great source of information and are happy to share their knowledge,” says Marcia Berridge, show producer. The shows are a longstanding Santa Fe tradition; they have separate focuses but run consecutively.

Antique American Indian Art Show a vetted arts fair dedicated to showcasing the arts and cultures of Native American peoples by Whitne y Spive y NATIVE AMERICAN ART BY DEFINITION has deep roots in those cultures’ history and traditions. And now, visitors to the Antique American Indian Art Show on August 18–20 can learn about and purchase historic basketry, jewelry, textiles, kachina dolls, sculptures, and more. Forty top national dealers in historic American Indian art will come to El Museo Cultural de Santa Fe to showcase their goods. “You can actually speak with the world’s leading experts in the field at this show,” explain show producers Kim Martindale and John Morris. “Whatever level you are collecting at, when you come to the show, please talk to the dealers. They have pieces that you would see at a museum, but here, you can actually engage with them and learn more.” New this year is a special exhibit of Chilkat dancing blankets. Traditionally made by the Haida, Tsimshian, and Tlingit people of British Columbia and Alaska, each ceremonial blanket took at least a year to make from mountain goat wool and yellow cedar bark. More than a dozen historic and contemporary weavings will be on display. “The Chilkat blankets on view collectively represent some of the finest examples of this unique art form in the world,” Martindale and Morris explain. “Extremely rare, only a relatively few examples are known, and they exist in public institutions and private collections.” The three-day show kicks off with an opening night gala ($50) on August 17 at 6 pm to benefit New Mexico PBS—but undoubtedly all in attendance will benefit in some capacity. “You’ll never see this particular grouping of dealers at another show,” Martindale and Morris say. “They have been saving their best materials to show at this event.” 16

Los Lobos

the East L. A. rockers come to Buffalo Thunder

by Whitne y Spive y IF THE LAST TIME YOU SANG “La Bamba” was at karaoke, August 14 is your chance to sing along with the band who made the Ritchie Valens song a No. 1 hit. That’s right, Los Lobos are coming to town. The Grammy Awardwinning five-man group from East Los Angeles takes the stage at Buffalo Thunder Resort and Casino as part of the seventh annual Sangre de Cristo Funeral Fund Concert. The band—David Hidalgo, Louie Perez, Cesar Rosas, Conrad Lozano and Steve Berlin—will undoubtedly play their hits from the past 40 years, but the audience will likely be treated to new tunes from the group’s forthcoming full-length studio album, Gates of Gold—its first since 2010. Scheduled for release on September 25, Gates of Gold is a dynamic 11-song collection with lyrics that touch on everything from the immigrant experience to death and melodies that range from Mexican folk to blues. “Unlike many bands that write, gather, and catalog material between studio releases, Los Lobos prefers to create their magic on the fly when they decide it’s time to record,” drummer Louie Perez said in a statement. Singer/guitarist Cesar Rosas agrees. “When I listen to our catalog, doing things more spontaneously in the studio has led to some of our best work,” he says.

For audience members who just can’t get enough of the band, sit tight until September 15—that’s when the University of Texas Press releases Los Lobos: Dream in Blue by Chris Morris. The first book to document the band’s career is a “useful cultural history that is sure to please fans and musicologists” alike, according to Kirkus Reviews. ¡Viva Los Lobos!

Santa Fe Capitol Grill Since coming under new ownership and management earlier this year, Capitol Grill has made several exciting efforts in offering up great American cuisine—namely a new menu that features local ingredients from regional suppliers. “We are going local with our meats and vegetables, going to farmers markets in Santa Fe and Albuquerque,” says Chef Luis Torres. “[Customers] love our new menu, and they can really taste the difference.” One example of this upgrade is the gluten-free steak medallions dish (pictured), made of bistro tenderloin draped in a rich raspberry demi-glace. Roasted garlic mashed potatoes and sautéed asparagus round out this distinctly American menu item—one of the many meals of Torres’ long career in the culinary arts. “I’ve been cooking for 26 years,” he says. “I started when I was 15.” —Jacob Nyenhuis

Estevan’s Restaurant

DOUGLAS MERRIAM

Found inside Hotel Chimayo, Estevan’s Restaurant offers a variety of affordable (less than $25) regional New Mexican dishes with French influences. Owner Estevan Garcia shops at the farmers market twice a week and often incorporates local ingredients such as Chimayo chile and Soccoro chicken into his dishes. The chef of 30 years hopes his guests “leave with healthy spiritual food” on their minds and in their bodies. The simple and flavorful chile relleno (pictured) is one of the restaurant’s staples. Made with chicos (similar to posole), pinto bean garlic demi-glace sauce, and roasted green chile stuffed with sautéed white button mushrooms, this dairy-free dish will satisfy anyone, vegan or not. —Elizabeth Sanchez 125 Washington hotelchimayo.com/estevan August 13, 2015 NOW 19

Ronnie Layden, Simple Cloud, oil, 12 x 12"

A fifth-generation Santa Fean, painter and photographer Ronnie Layden is excited by landscapes in his native Southwest as well as those around the U.S. and the world. Working both en plein air and in his studio, Layden has traveled as far away as Japan, Africa, and New Zealand for inspiration (and subject matter). Layden’s photographic work is created using classic black-and-white gelatin prints. “There’s room for the new (digital photography), but that doesn’t have to kill the old style of black-and-white photography,” he says.

Having studied architecture at the University of New Mexico and worked closely with John McHugh, the designer of the first Santa Fe Opera pavilion, Layden spent years designing homes before deciding to follow his true calling as an artist. In 2004, he opened Ronnie Layden Fine Art on Canyon Road, where he shows his photographs and oil paintings and offers art lessons.—Emily Van Cleve Ronnie Layden Fine Art, ronnielaydenfineart.com

Carol Coates multidimentional mixed-media works Mixed-media artist Carol Coates and her husband, Thomas Roth, will both exhibit work in the Free of Color show opening August 14 at Tansey Contemporary. The Summer of Color event recognizes artists who “leverage the very absence of color in their work,” according to the gallery. Using layered combinations of her own original photography, drawings, and painting with some computer manipulation, Coates creates two- and three-dimensional pieces. “My most recent work is a somewhat holographic layered series of backlit mixedmedia classical nudes based on a dance practice called contact improv,” Coates says. “I’ve also started a very abstracted series of enlarged halftone images presented as mixed-media, UV-cured monoprints.” Her work can be seen at her studio space and private gallery on Bishops Lodge Road, at Tansey Contemporary, and online at carolcoates.com.—Cristina Olds

Using a flexible shaft tool to allow light to enter through tiny holes, Coates pierces a mesh image layer, which sits two inches above a canvas image.

STUDIO

Roth sculpts threedimensional forms from hardware mesh that are mounted on panel. “As the final touch, I spray the painting with white gesso,” he says.

Thomas Roth fiercely white work

STEPHEN LANG

Although Roth used to work primarily on canvas, he prefers wood panels now.

Swedish-born artist Thomas Roth describes his work as “process-based abstraction”; his newer work in particular focuses on texture and technique rather than color. “The more basic the color, the more inward and pure,” he explains on his website. “White is not a mere absence of color; it is as fierce as red and as affirmative as black. I could paint in many colors; but could never paint with such gaudy elegance as when I paint in white.” Roth uses a combination of brushes, spray, glue guns, hammers, metal shears, and pliers to create his works, some of which will be on display at Tansey Contemporary this week. But “most of all, [I use] my hands and mind,” he says. “The inspiration to my pieces comes from everywhere. . . the waves of the sea, a famous painting, a weaving, a folded or crumpled sheet of paper.”—Cristina Olds tanseycontemporary.com

SUMMER SHOWS ITSELF OFF with fresh fruits, fragrant blooms, and dazzling sunsets. This pageantry has inspired the unique creations that jewelry artists Donna Diglio and Barbara Hendricks will share in The Summer of Color, a gallery event by Tresa Vorenberg Goldsmiths. Opening with a reception on Friday, August 14, and continuing through August 23, The Summer of Color is Tresa Vorenberg Goldsmiths’ contribution to the Santa Fe Gallery Association’s citywide effort (by the same name) to display the colors of summer through art. “If you were to look at the watermelon tourmaline, you’d see every color of a cut of watermelon, from the rind to the interior. It’s the color that attracts me in the first place,” says Diglio of the gemstones she chooses. Diglio’s palette includes yellow jade, emeralds, Mexican fire opal in sunset hues, and sapphires of almost every color in the rainbow. “It’s so much fun to see all that sparkle come together in a wonderful, wearable piece of art,” Diglio says. A resident of Ojai, California, Diglio motors eastward each August in her 25-foot Mercedes Benz RV to share with Santa Fe what she has been preparing all year. “My work resonates with Santa Fe; it’s a true fit.” Tresa Vorenberg Goldsmiths hosts a show of Diglio’s work every year, this time pairing her with Barbara Hendricks, also from Southern California. Winner of a prestigious World Gold Council award, Hendricks describes her work as “clean, stylized, but not quite minimal. On a trip to Germany, I realized that’s where my style comes from. It’s 100 percent German.” Among Hendricks’s preferred gemstones is Tahitian pearl because of its organic nature and array of rich colors. “Peacock green undertones are my favorites,” Hendricks says. “Others have been given ‘sexy names’ like pistachio and steel gray. They are beautiful when combined.” Hendricks also favors tourmaline in pinks and greens in shapes that go beyond round or oval. “I also like to work with gems that have been carved,” remarks Hendricks, who names Steve Walters as a preferred stone-carving artist. “These artists offer some of the most colorful and beautiful jewelry with gemstones that I feature,” says gallery owner Tresa Vorenberg. “Donna’s jeweled necklaces and earrings and Barbara’s rings and handcrafted items complement each other beautifully.” For 41 years, Tresa Vorenberg Goldsmiths has offered “wildly imaginative, handcrafted designer jewelry by more than 35 artists.” As for The Summer of Color, Vorenberg assures that we can “expect to be wowed.” The Summer of Color, August 14–23, reception August 14, 5 pm, free, Tresa Vorenberg Goldsmiths, 656 Canyon, tvgoldsmiths.com

IT’S THE HANDBAG collector’s trifecta: Hermés, Louis Vuitton, Chanel. Fashionistas may search across the globe for these coveted French labels, but all three are available in the downtown Santa Fe boutique Real Deal Collection. Nearly 10 years ago, proprietor Corey Palmer was a web designer with a penchant for purses. In online forums, she often saw reports of collectors being scammed with fakes; she had a few run-ins with phonies herself— even from big-name retailers. Seeing the opportunity to combine her two passions, in 2006, Palmer started an online-only consignment business in New York specializing in authentic handbags and jewelry from top luxury labels. She moved to Santa Fe in 2007, and, after a few years, opened the retail storefront. Palmer has spent years honing her ability to distinguish forgeries. Telling a genuine bag from a fake isn’t as easy as distinguishing “Prado” from “Prada” on a label; it comes down to the materials, the hardware, the fonts used in labels, and the tightness and evenness of the stitching. Although Palmer accepts bags for A Balenciaga limited edition bag such as this one can sell her consideration any time the store for more than $1,300. is open, she only authenticates in the quiet of her office.
