SANTA FE

From the time of the ancient Anazasi, 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

2015 |

THIS PAST MONDAY morning, as I walked across the Plaza, I was struck by the surrounding quiet. Where just 24 hours prior, tens of thousands of Native art collectors, Native artists, and support individuals were all in the midst of the Indian Market frenzy, now it was the Plaza as it we normally know it: a place of serenity and calm. Indian Market represents the exciting culmination of an entire year of anticipation and buildup. And then, poof, it’s all over; and Santa Fe returns to normal. Hotel and restaurant reservations are once again easily secured. Navigating our narrow streets, crowded with visitors, is no longer the challenge it was just last week. We get our Santa Fe back. Yes, we’ll have big, busy weekends before the snow flies, but Santa Fe is once again a place where you can truly savor art, get into a bar to hear that hot band—and still find a parking spot. This is really when Santa Fe, for local or visitor, can be best enjoyed.  So, while the days are still warm, soak up Santa Fe. Right now starts what is probably the most pleasant time of the year to be here. What you will see in the following pages should give you the inspiration to savor Santa Fe while you can truly enjoy it.

Ito crafted the work using Douglas fir imported from the United States in the 1930s, and also incorporated a beam from a building that survived the bombing of Hiroshima. Martindale is producer of the current "Objects of Art" show in the Santa Fe Railyard.

COURTESY COMPASS RECORDS

Appalachia is coming to the Sangres for the Santa Fe Bluegrass and Old Time Music Festival, August 28– 30. Bluegrass band Frank Solivan and Dirty Kitchen—whose latest release, Cold Spell, earned a 2015 Grammy nomination— and Uncle Henry’s Favorites, who have played at social dances since 1985, headline this year’s fest. The old-tme headliner is a traditional New Mexico group, the Southwest Musicians featuring Lorenzo Trujillo. The Triple L Band, a regional bluegrass ensemble, rounds out the top acts. For the first time, the Southwest Pickers, who organize the event, will host a Friday night musical instrument swap meet where musicians and students can buy, sell, and trade. The weekend also includes contests in songwriting, along with banjo and flatpick guitar playing; workshops; a barn dance; and a band scramble, where members hop among groups to jam. —Ashley M.

Restaurant Martín

Key lime vacherin with Szechuan peppercorn meringue

If you frequent Restaurant Martín on Galisteo Street for its sophisticated yet straightforward meals, you might be pleased to learn that you can now prepare some of their most popular dishes at home. The Restaurant Martín Cookbook, co-written by Chef Martín Rios with Cheryl and Bill Jamison, features dozens of recipes inspired by Southwestern, Asian, and French cuisines. To approximate the flavors Rios is famous for, it’s best to follow his practice of using the best of fresh, local, and organic produce, meats, and poultry. “Martín has a very personal way of cooking,” says Gabriel Kreuther, chef of the New York City Restaurant Gabriel Kreuther. “His deep understanding of flavors, balance, and seasoning results in extraordinary and surprising compositions. When I eat his food, it is clear to me he puts his heart into it.” Cheryl Jamison says the 304-page coffee-table-style cookbook, with dishes photographed by Kate Russell, was the last project that she and her late husband worked on together. “It was a delightful chance for the two of us to work with another Santa Fe culinary couple, Martín and Jennifer Rios,” she notes. Chef Rios echoes those sentiments. “Words cannot express our appreciation and gratitude to the Jamisons and Kate for their attention to detail, creativity, precision, and most importantly, their friendship before and throughout this process, and beyond,” he writes in the book’s acknowledgements. “We thank everyone in our lives and our community who have stood behind us, perhaps most importantly our loyal guests, who have helped us to realize the dream that is Restaurant Martín. This cookbook is the icing on the cake.” —Whitney Spivey August 27, 2015 NOW 1

TWENTIETH CENTURY FOX FILM CORPORATION, MARVEL ENTERTAINMENT

Forgive Fantastic Four for being C-grade. The summer’s last superhero movie was bombed by critics and largely ignored by audiences, but it’s neither as bloated nor as boring as Avengers 2: Age of Ultron, and its sins are essentially the same as AntMan’s—it plods through tired origin tropes until it ends with a predictable battle against an underwhelming villain. In fact, the fight with Doctor Doom is over in about five minutes. Mr. Fantastic, the Human Torch, Invisible Woman, and The Thing combine their powers (of —respectively—stretching, flamethrowing, vanishing, and being a rock man who can punch really hard) into a single attack that vanquishes the evil doctor. We don’t see Doctor Doom die, though, and if this were a more popular movie it would be easy to conclude that he’ll return in sequels to torment the team anew. Fat chance of that. It’s interesting to note that the director, Josh Trank, took to Twitter to proclaim the film would have been “fantastic” if the studio hadn’t wrenched it from his hands in post-production. Rumors online say Trank was late and disruptive during filming, but I still wish they’d let him make his version. Trank’s first film, Chronicle, was a twist on the Blair Witch Project–style found-footage genre, in which teenagers film themselves acquiring superpowers that slowly turn one of them insane. That movie was marvelous, and it would seem a natural step toward a production like Fantastic Four. Add a cast of interesting young talents—Miles Teller (Whiplash) as Mr. Fantastic, Michael B. Jordan (Fruitvale Station) as The Human Torch, and Kate Mara (House of Cards) as Invisible Woman—and the thud of this latest Marvel entry feels like an opportunity squandered. But here’s the thing (not The Thing) about comic books: They’re for kids! Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy did supreme justice to gritty graphic novels, but the rest of these movies would have us pretend comic books aren’t silly. Fantastic Four is dumb, but it’s inoffensive and has unwittingly matched the tone of its source material. I didn’t like it, but I’m not 12.—Phil Parker

local flavor goods grown in and around Santa Fe offer easy health and economic benefits

ONE OF THE ADVANTAGES OF LIVING in the Southwest is the availability of fresh, local food year-round. Sure, this time of year, the abundance is obvious: green chiles roast in every grocery store parking lot, Pueblo feast days celebrate the harvest, and you can hardly drive down Paseo de Peralta on a Tuesday or Saturday morning because of the constant pedestrian traffic to and from the Santa Fe Farmers Market. But even in the colder months, you’ll still find an abundance of local fare. Stores such as La Montañita Co-op, Kaune’s Neighborhood Market, and growers tucked away inside the Farmers Market Pavilion offer enough root vegetables and area meats to create hearty winter stews, shepherd’s pies, and soups from scratch. Nearby farms such as Growing Opportunities in Alcalde grow organic, GMO-free hydroponic tomatoes no matter what the outside temperature—the same goes for produce cultivated in the greenhouses at Camino de Paz (Santa Cruz) and other area farms. The Old Windmill Dairy (Estancia), Heidi’s Raspberry Farm (Corrales), and the Santa Fe Honey Salon produce artisanal cheeses, jams, and honey, respectively, that you can pair with a made-that-morning baguette from Sage Bakehouse or Cloud Cliff Bakery. In other words, in Santa Fe, the frequent consumption of local foods is a totally realistic aspiration. But to make it even easier, you don’t even have to do all the shopping and cooking. Plenty of area restaurants incorporate local fare into their meals (see facing page). Dr. Field Goods, for example, offers a pork confit dish featuring wood-fired Kyzer Farms (Albuquerque) pork belly while Tune Up Café serves up burgers with buffalo meat from Bosque Farms. Downtown, Il Piatto Italian Farmhouse Kitchen offers six to ten specials nightly that are almost entirely derived from products available locally. “Both the style and specifics of the dishes change as availability and seasonality dictate,” explains Chef Matt Yohalem. “They are of the highest quality, at the peak of freshness.” Whether he’s grilling vegetables from Romero Farms (Dixon) or making eggplant parmigiano with regionally sourced aubergines, Yohalem— like many area chefs—argues that offering local fare is important for many reasons in addition to taste and freshness. “It is much easier to control and receive quality products when you know from who and where they come,” he explains, noting that in addition to removing the middle man and his/her added expense, buying locally means relationships are fostered between vendors and guests to create “micro-communities where each part in turn helps and complements the other.” Not to mention that the money spent stays in the local economy. But most of all, “as a chef, it is my job to deliver the finest product possible to my guests, period,” Yohalem says. “It’s fun.” 14

10 reasons

to buy local food

Adapted from Farm to Table (farmtotablenm.org) and the University of Vermont Extension’s Growing for Market newsletter Locally grown produce tastes and looks better because crops are picked at their peak. Local food is better for you; the shorter time between farm and table, the less nutrients lost. Local food preserves genetic diversity because small farms often grow many different varieties of crops to provide a long harvest season (as opposed to large-scale operations that plant varieties based on their ability to ripen uniformly and last a long time on a shelf). Local food is safe. Farmers take their responsibility to the customer seriously. If you have questions about a product, you can often speak directly to the farmer. Local food supports local families. No middleman means farmers receive full price for their products, which allows them to keep doing what they do. Local food builds community and grows the connection between grower and eater. Local food preserves open space. When farmers are paid more for their products, they’re less likely to sell their land for development. Local food promotes energy conservation by decreasing the carbon footprint required to transport goods. Local food benefits the environment and wildlife. Well-managed farms conserve fertile soil, protect water sources, and sequester carbon from the atmosphere. Local food is an investment in the future. Support local farmers today to ensure they’ll be around tomorrow.

farm-to-his-table CHEF STEVEN LEMON’S 2014 RETURN to Pranzo Italian Grill wasn’t just a homecoming to the restauarant—it marked repatriation to the Santa Fe Farmers Market. Lemon was the original chef of Pranzo, from 1989 to 1995, and when he bought the Italian and Mediterranean restaurant last year he sought to elevate the food to its original quality—beginning with fresh-from-the-field ingredients. Lemon shops regularly at the market, perusing the staples of Santa Fe—chile, corn, beans, squash, and tomatoes. He rarely goes with a shopping list; rather, he allows that day’s harvest to speak, letting it spark his culinary imagination. “It keeps the food communal,” he says. “[The farmers] show up with what they picked that morning. We buy it and prepare it. And our customers eat it that same day.” On Saturdays, he drags his son out of bed and to the market, allowing the youngster to pick out what looks good to him, whether it’s garlic from Stanley Crawford’s El Bosque Garlic Farm or a grass-fed ribeye from Red Mesa Meats. Often these ingredients make their way to the chef’s home, sometimes directly to Pranzo’s kitchen. His trips to the market go beyond shopping for produce. He shares camaraderie with the farmers whose passion for quality ingredients equals his own. “It’s wonderful what the farmer can do—and endure—just to get some heads of lettuce. It’s really hard work,” he says. Lemon has a standing policy that he’ll buy from any farmer who shows up on his restaurant’s doorstep, and he often travels directly to the fields throughout the week. Each Tuesday and Thursday during the summer he drives to Espanola Valley Farm (owned by Salvador and Dolores Corona) to pick squash blossoms. He zooms back to the kitchen to prepare a filling with which to stuff the delicate flowers before they wilt. Often, his dishes highlight the ingredients’ flavors at their simple best, as with a pan-seared ribeye paired with a classic red wine, such as the Gattinara from Travaglini Giancarlo, available at Susan’s Fine Wines and Spirits. The Travaglini label is known for its use of the nebbiolo grape—Chef Lemon’s favorite. He says the classic red wine’s floral notes and intense cherry and spice flavors make it a perfect complement to the mushroom-like flavors of the hearty steak. 16

PROFILE

Amy Lay A resident of Jackson Hole, Wyoming, painter Amy Lay (formerly Amy Poor) lives with her greatest source of inspiration—and primary subjects—just outside her studio window. Wolves, owls, bears, bison, quail, and hare meander through the mountains and across Lay’s canvases in muted tones with splashes of vibrant color. The artist hikes almost daily, though she captures the wildlife in her mind’s eye rather than via technology. “I don’t want a camera between me and the animal,” she says. A former watercolorist, Lay transitioned to oil four years ago. “Watercolor is vital to what I’m doing now,” she says. “It taught me flow, movement, and transparency, which creates a painting that is much more alive and spontaneous.”—Ashley M. Biggers Manitou Galleries, manitougalleries.com

Barbara Van Cleve, Ghost Horses, archival pigment print, 16 x 20" Van Cleve’s high-contrast, lowromanticism works combine a documentary eye with an artist’s sensibility—an unflinching view that’s made her as iconic as her subjects (she’s been inducted into the National Cowgirl Hall of Fame). “Photography has been a lifelong passion for me,” she says. “I wanted to share with other people how ‘wonder-full’ ranch life was, but I could not draw, or paint, or make things in clay, so I begged my parents for a camera. Thankfully, they gave me a Brownie Box camera when I was 11, and that was the beginning of my being able to share with others my visions of ranch life. . . .”—Barbara Tyner Wade Wilson Art, wadewilsonart.com

Lange Marshall For Lange Marshall, art has always been a refuge. She discovered its “emotional healing power” during her childhood, which was, she says, “filled with a lot of neglect and trauma and some abuse.” The creative process nurtures a safe haven that continues to sustain her, “almost like a meditation.” Marshall first visited New Mexico in her early 20s. “I couldn’t believe this place had so much art,” she says. “I thought, ‘I’ve got to live here!’” In the 1990s she relocated, and today, from her Corrales studio, she paints impressionistic landscapes, still lifes, and figures, switching back and forth between oil and watercolor. “It just has to do with the mood I’m in,” she explains, noting that the looseness of watercolor sparks within her a “childlike exuberance” that leads to “happy accidents.”—Eve Tolpa Greenberg Fine Art, greenbergfineart.com

PROFILE by Emily Va n Cle ve

A Spirit ual Awa ke n ing at Pi ppi n Co n t e m p o ra r y NEW MEXICO’S LAND AND CULTURES have had a profound effect on many artists, including abstract painter Cody Hooper. Four years ago he left the crowded north Texas urban areas, which seemed to be stifling his creative juices, and moved to New Mexico. The open spaces relaxed him, allowing him to concentrate on peaceful thoughts and look at himself more clearly. His joy increased exponentially when he and his wife welcomed their baby girl Madison to the family in the beginning of August. “I’m sure that knowing we were going to have a baby affected my most recent work,” he explains. “There’s more green in my paintings. Maybe that’s related to the landscaping my wife and I have been doing around our house. I’ve noticed more magenta in my paintings and a lot more purples. Purple communicates an energy that can’t be communicated through other colors.” Cody Hooper, Soul Searching, acrylic on panel, 50 x 38"

Cody Hooper, Deepest Passions, acrylic on panel 44 x 44"

Hooper’s new show A Spiritual Awakening is a gift from the artist to his viewers; a sharing of the happiness he feels and the spiritual awareness he’s experienced in recent months. His 10 new paintings, with titles including Soul Searching, Dream With Me, Deep Emotions, and Sweet Immersion, show light coming through darkness and offer a message of hope. “My titles come to mind near the end of the painting process,” he says. “I usually work pretty fast, pretty spontaneously initially, but the last few days are about taking the time to finish the details. I don’t worry about composition too much. I let it take care of itself.” In the past Hooper has created sculptural works on panel, oil on panel, and mixed media on panel, but lately he’s been focusing on working with acrylics that offer spectacular opportunities for projecting intense light.

STUDIO

Sergio Moyano explosive abstraction

In 1974, Argentine artist Sergio Moyano fell in love with a Santa Fe print shop called Hand Graphics, which was owned by his longtime friend and master printer Ron Adams. After studying art in Paris, Munich, Mexico City, and New York City, Moyano decided to settle in the City Different and work there. He developed his printing skills—lithography and etching—under Adams’ watch while continuing to paint, often with reckless abandon. Forty-one years later, he hasn’t stopped. In fact, Moyano, now 80, plans on hosting an exhibition of his recent work sometime this fall. Moyano often attends rehearsals at the Santa Fe opera, where he sketches performers in pencil or using his homemade ink. But he primarily creates monotypes and paintings at his home studio. His abstract work derives from a small idea, such as a color, texture, or contrast, but expands via jazz or classical music. He has been known to finish a piece within a few hours or rework an old piece after a few months. “We need art,” he says. “Without art, there is no life.” —Elizabeth Sanchez sergiomoyano.com

Moyano became a skilled printer while working at Hand Graphics, which was owned by his friend Ron Adams from 1974–1987. Today, Moyano keeps a small etching press in his studio.

Moyano’s colorful acrylic and enamel paintings are usually painted on the floor and, when finished, have an optimistic, harmonic quality about them.

Marsha Mason FOR MARSHA MASON, 2014 was a year of transition. In January, the four-time Academy Award nominee and two-time Golden Globe winner sold her Abiquiú farm, where she grew herbs for her all-natural body product collection, Resting in the River. She now lives on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. “You never know until you make one of these moves how it is going to affect you,” says the actress, who, after spending two decades in the Land of Enchantment, realized that “I really do have a deep connection to nature. It feeds me in a way that cities don’t.” Though Mason still collaborates with local farmers to source medicinal herbs—and bought a small hayfield in Connecticut to continue cultivating her own—working the land is just one of the many things on her schedule. She’s developing a men’s skin care line; continues to travel to Los Angeles for her ongoing role on TV’s The Middle; and, in addition to preparing curricula for courses at colleges, universities, and New York acting schools, started theater directing. Throughout all this change, Mason has kept a pied-à-terre in Santa Fe. “I have good friends there,” she says. “My [Resting in the River] office is there. My car is registered there. I’m still a New Mexican.”—ET 26

Jeweler Denise Betesh c o l o r - c r a z y bau bl e s

MARSHALL ELIAS

DENISE BETESH TAKES 24-KARAT gold casting grain and alloys it with silver and copper to create most of the 22-karat gold she uses in her handmade jewelry. It’s a labor-intensive process that excites the Santa Fe jeweler/designer. “I love 22-karat gold,” she says. “I love the color and its malleability. It doesn’t fight with me.” Betesh, who shows her necklaces, handmade chains, rings, earrings, and bracelets at Karen Melfi Collection and Ken Terry, knew by the age of 16 that her path would lie in the jewelry world. That’s when Cartier jeweler Aldo Cippullo saw a wedding band she’d fabricated and asked her to make some pieces for him. Training at the Boston Museum of Arts and New York’s Jewelry Arts Institute solidified her commitment and enhanced her skills, particularly in the ancient art of granulation, where tiny granules of gold are individually fused onto the surface of another metal. Betesh’s designs are inspired by forms around her, as well as by classic and contemporary images she has seen during trips abroad. When it comes to stones, Betesh is partial to green, blue, and charcoal sapphires; green, blue, and white moonstones; a variety of tourmalines, and sparkly zircons. But lately she’s been shaking things up. “This year I’ve gone a little color crazy,” she says. “Generally, I use stones with muted colors, but in recent months I’ve been using a lot of red and orange stones in my work.”—Emily Van Cleve Denise Betesh at Ken Terry Salon, 1012 Marquez Pl, Suite 103; and Karen Melfi Collection, 225 Canyon, karenmelficollection.com, denisebetesh.com

style Wild Spirit cares for more than 60 rescued animals.

Caring for canids: Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary is also home to coyotes, dingoes, wolf-dogs and foxes (above).

IN A REMOTE POCKET of western New Mexico, the howls of wolves are ever present. Primal yet otherworldly, these calls are all the more remarkable because here, at the Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary, it’s possible to put a face—and even a name—to them. A safe haven for formerly displaced wolves and their canine cousins, Wild Spirit is home to more than 60 rescues, each one given a second chance at life in a place tailor-made for their particular needs. Four times a day (Tuesday–Sunday), knowledgeable staff members lead 45- to 90-minute tours alongside thoughtfully designed enclosures of various sizes. The staff’s devotion to the sanctuary’s residents is palpable and infectious, as they share the history of each animal and detail ongoing wolf conservation efforts. It wouldn’t be a stretch to imagine that their dedication has played a role in Santa Fe–based author George R. R. Martin’s longstanding support of Wild Spirit, which is home to the Westeros Pack—10 rescued wolf-dogs named after main characters and dire wolves featured in Martin’s popular A Song of Ice and Fire series. Though Wild Spirit is one of the nation’s foremost centers dedicated to educating the public about wolves, its care isn’t limited to wolves and wolf-dogs: there are coyotes, foxes, and dingoes on-site, too. Visiting the sanctuary, which is about three hours west of Santa Fe in Ramah, makes for a long and rewarding day trip, but you can also stay overnight in either the campsite across the street or the rustic, off-grid cabin on the grounds.

GABRIELLA MARKS

Nosotros on the Bandstand Nosotros got its start in Las Cruces as a guitar trio in 1994, and has since evolved into a 9-piece powerhouse. Now based in Albuquerque, they’re taking their spicy hot sounds throughout the Southwest, bringing irresistible dance music—an original sound that melds elements of rock, salsa, jazz, bachata and cumbia—to larger venues each year. In February 2002, Nosotros caught the ear of percussionist/producer Chris Trujillo, best known for his work with Tom Petty, The Black Crowes, Rod Stewart, Toto, and Diana Ross. In November of 2003, Trujillo produced the group’s third album, Nosotros, cementing the group’s reputation as a Latin music powerhouse; and the group recently released its fourth album, Llena La Alma, with Grammyaward-winning engineer Doug Geist. In July, the group took over the Santa Fe Bandstand on the Plaza, with special guest Chango. As Hyperactive Music Magazine wrote about them, “Nosotros’ music is not to be explained, it is to be felt in the pit of our souls.”
