PUBLISHER’S NOTE

|

THIS IS OFFICIALLY THE HIGH SEASON of Santa Fe’s summer events. You’ll be stunned by the offerings that tantalize your ears and eyes with all that’s going on this weekend. On the music front, you have big names such as Grace Potter, Michael Franti and Spearhead, and John Rangel, along with major performances by international stars at the Santa Fe Opera and the Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival. All of these performers and venues have national recognition and are popular across a broad spectrum of musical tastes—yet they are just some of the greats that come to mind. There are so many more talented musicians to be heard all weekend, all over town, so don’t let anyone tell you Santa Fe doesn’t have a music scene. The Santa Fe Shakespeare Society’s presentation of The Tempest has all the powerful impact of the Bard’s much-vaunted script. What a treat to see this play live, outdoors as it was meant to be seen, right here in the City Different. The stars are found not only on the stage this weekend. Looking over the gallery openings, I see that many of the best in the Santa Fe art scene are having shows. Those not to be missed include Ed Mell (one of my personal favorites with his geometric forms), William Hook, Billy Schenck, and Ted Gall (known for his fascinating and interactive sculpture).  This weekend, whether you are a local or a visitor, you’ll find that it’s a magnificent time to be a part of this very special town.

COURTESY XTERRA TRI THE TORTURE

the

The Xterra Tri the Torture triathlon kicks off with an 800-meter “adventure swim.”

Xterra Tri the Torture

If you think pool swims and road cycling are for wimps, consider the Xterra Tri the Torture triathlon—a swim-mountain bike-trail run competition that will make you seem way more hardcore than your pavement-pounding friends. On August 8, individual and team racers of all ages and abilities will tackle the course, located 15 miles north of Santa Fe in Glorieta. In the second annual event, the 800-meter “adventure swim” once again challenges participants with obstacles that must be negotiated in a circular pond. Fifteen miles of dirt roads and singletrack presents mountain bikers with both mellow and technical terrain. A new trail running section boasts four miles of singletrack and dirt roads with gradual climbs and descents. After finishing the run, racers climb a tower in the middle of the lake and squeal down one of four giant water slides before swimming a short distance to the finish line. “It’s a fun and challenging course in a great location with supportive volunteers and spectators,” says Brent Bonwell, a member of CORE (Crazy Off-road Racing Enthusiast) Crew, which organizes the event. “There are cool giveaways with registration, special awards for all finishers, and prizes for top winners.”—Cristina Olds Xterra Tri the Torture triathlon, August 8, 9 am, $70/individual, $150/team of three, Glorieta Camps, 11 State Rd 50, Glorieta, core-crew.com

Far Horizons

Enjoy an espresso, biscuits, cheeses, and champagne at Lacuna Galleries on the evening of August 7, when the gallery’s charming courtyard is transformed into a Parisian street for the opening reception of Mark Hanham’s show Far Horizons: Experience Europe on the Palette and the Palate. With design help from Jean Scott Benson, who is originally from France but now lives in Santa Fe, Lacuna Galleries co-owners Olaf and Sheryle Moon created a French-style kiosk out of their coffee shack, which has been serving espresso to the public since April. “We put a frame over the shack and painted green so it looks like the green metal kiosks in Paris,” explains Sheryle. “Our barista speaks French and will serve croissants and coffee during the day on Friday and then French treats and wines during the evening reception.” Tables and chairs set up around the courtyard’s fountain add to the evening’s ambience, as do the atmospheric lights, live accordion music and French posters, art, and postcards. The idea, Moon says, is for guests to feel as if they are spending an evening in Paris while surrounded by Hanham’s paintings, which capture iconic European cityscapes such as the Eiffel Tower and the canals of Venice. —Emily Van Cleve Far Horizons: Experience Europe on the Palette and the Palate, August 7–28, reception August 7, 5–7:30 pm, free, Lacuna Galleries, 124 W Palace, lacunagalleries.com 4

Kathy Beekman, Barnscape with Rust Colored Sky, pastel on paper, 30 x 22"

Artist Demonstration

Several times a year, pastel painter Kathy Beekman sets up her easel on the covered porch at Canyon Road Contemporary Art to create a new work from start to finish. Saturday’s three-hour demonstration takes place in conjunction with Friday night’s reception for her show Limitless Expanses, which features landscapes that convey wide open spaces and are grounded by a barn, shed, or cloud. “I’ll be ready to start working at 11 am [on August 8], and I won’t stop except for a very short lunch break,” explains Beekman, who relishes the opportunity to interact with anyone who stops by to watch her paint. “I’ll have a painting completed by 2 pm.” Beekman paints with pastel sticks on black paper and applies the pure raw pigment with her fingers. “Some people don’t think I’m really painting because I’m not using a brush,” she adds. “What I do is mix the different colors on the paper. So if I want to make light blue, I first put a blue down and then blend white with it.” Rather than paint what’s in front of her, Beekman brings a photograph for inspiration. Part of the fun of watching her paint— and some people watch her for the entire session—is seeing how she interprets the image in front of her. “A lot of imagination goes into my work,” she says. “I’m inspired by my experiences, including all the hiking and traveling I’ve done.” —Emily Van Cleve Kathy Beekman artist demonstration, August 8, 11 am–2 pm, free, Canyon Road Contemporary Art, 403 Canyon, canyoncontemporary.com

Santa Fe Yoga Festival

DANIEL QUAT

music and yoga come together at the second annual event SANTA FE, WITH its spiritual leanings and a predilection toward healthy living, is a natural choice for a festival celebrating the popular practice of yoga. Now in its second year, the Santa Fe Yoga Festival continues to focus on spreading love through yoga, music, and community. “Santa Fe is the perfect atmosphere for people searching for a chance to reflect, focus on wellness of the mind and body, and connect with others,” says organizer Kurt Young. Attendees come from far and wide to take classes with world-class instructors, some of whom live and teach regularly in Santa Fe. Tias Little, director of Prajna Yoga in Santa Fe and author of several books on yoga and meditation, will lead an interdisciplinary yoga class while musician Michael Franti plays acoustic accompaniment during Saturday’s festival. That evening, Franti and his band, Spearhead, will hit the stage at Fort Marcy Park for a full rock/reggae/pop concert performance. Opening for the Franti and Spearhead concert will be local band Chris Chickering and The Now, who, like the politically active Franti, espouse a positive message for global change

through uplifting music and lyrics. Another international yoga and dharma teacher, who calls Santa Fe home and teaches at YogaSource when not offering retreats abroad, is Katchie Ananda. Certified in Anusara, Jivamukti, and Ashtanga, Ananda will integrate her Buddhist teachings with the yoga classes she’ll lead at the Festival. “Dharma, or Buddhist teachings, help us to love ourselves, and in my classes I blend the dharma with yoga,” Anusara says. “I’ve always admired that Franti lives with a focus on love and on seva (giving), which is in line with my own way of being,” Young says. Ananda also gave classes at last year’s festival and said some of her students traveled to Santa Fe to attend the inaugural event. As a result of the festival, she also gained new followers. “Santa Fe is the perfect destination for this festival,” she says. “It’s a magical place, wild and untamed, and I think it really supports yoga.” In addition to music and yoga of all types (including rocker Grace Potter, who will musically accompany a yoga class on August 7), the festival includes daily meditations, dharma talks, ayurvedic nutrition classes, and a marketplace of yogarelated products and healthy food options.

Grace Potter a rock ‘n’ roll extravaganza at The Lensic

“Music is a conversation between the fan and the artist,” Potter says. The Vermont-native performs at The Lensic on August 7 with Rayland Baxter.

the moment.” Potter performs with her band—usually 7 or 8 people, many of them Nocturnals—and then whatever friends she can round up and convince to get on stage. “It’s a full two-and-some-odd hour experience, an extravaganza of sorts,” she says. “It is a rock ‘n’ roll show. It’s very dynamic, it’s passionate, and I dance a lot.” Which feels good after all that studio time. “When you’re a finicky, psychotic artist pulling out your hair and driving yourself crazy for a year and a half, you don’t know what the results are going to be,” Potter says. “All you know is that you have to keep exploring; my one job in life is to continue my growth and never ever settle for what’s comfortable. Hopefully my instincts will pay off.” Grace Potter with Rayland Baxter, August 7, 7:30 pm, $37–$49, The Lensic Performing Arts Center, 211 W San Francisco, ticketssantafe.org

SINGER GRACE POTTER is walking along the Niagara River en route to Niagara Falls. Tonight she’ll play a show on Lewiston, New York, but right now, she’s finishing up a series of phone interviews with various members of the media. “You’re very lucky because you’re the last one,” she says. “You’re getting the fully versed me.” And so I’m not surprised when a minute later she says, “we’re going to be in Santa Fe soon, which is super fucking exciting.” But the August 7 show at The Lensic is exciting for Potter not just because it’s at Santa Fe’s most historic theater; the 32-year-old rock ‘n’ roller from Vermont spent much of her childhood in north-central New Mexico. “My grandparents lived in Albuquerque for the last 40 years of their lives,” she explains, noting that her grandfather, Morgan Sparks, was “an inventor and a bit of a mad scientist” and the head of Sandia Labs from 1972–1981. “Santa Fe was their vacation spot, their special place,” she continues. “So although I won’t be visiting their [Albuquerque] gravesite, I will be doing a little meditation for Madre and Padre in their favorite spot.” She’ll also be taking requests on Friday night. “We won’t miss out on any of the songs that people want,” she says. “Even if somebody shouts out a song in the middle of a show, I usually try to get around to playing it because these people—they bought tickets, they got babysitters, or dogsitters, or whatever—they deserve to hear the songs they want to hear.” Some of those songs will be from Potter’s new solo album, Midnight, which comes out at—surprise!— midnight on August 14. Potter, who finds being in the studio “a bummer,” calls the 12-song compilation a labor of love. “It’s like neuroscience,” she says. “You need to create something that can be repeated over and over again and will still inspire emotion; when you’re making a record, it has to happen the same way every time, and it has to be shit hot.” That’s a contrast from Potter’s live shows, which vary from night to night and are “all about being in

The name of the Really Good Strawberry Shake (pictured) says it all, but for those wanting an ingredient list, this tall drink of old-fashioned goodness is made from scratch with real milk, cream, Madagascar vanilla, vanilla extract, cane sugar, and fresh strawberries. Swap out the berries for espresso, mango, or dulce de leche if you’d prefer a different flavor. General manager Belinda Marshall hopes these shakes will allow guests “to experience a sense of nostalgia that will take them back in time” at this classic diner on the south side of town.—Elizabeth Sanchez 3466 Zafarano plazacafesouthside.com

“My work is all about happiness and putting a smile on the face of my collectors,” says painter Dominique Boisjoli. “My job is to remind them that love is everywhere.” Boisjoli often works in a series, telling a story painting by painting. “I usually continue working on a series until the opportunity that inspired me is fully expressed,” she saying, noting that some of her pieces build up as many as 35 layers of paint. The artist also often integrates gold leaf into her colorful works, which have titles such as Sweetness in the Air and So Charming, So Sweet. “My paintings,” she says, “are a refuge for a moment of joyful bliss.”—Emily Van Cleve Dominique Boisjoli, Waxlander Gallery, 622 Canyon, waxlander.com August 6, 2015 NOW 21

“A friend told me that in Santa Fe everyone and their brother is an artist,” says painter Mark Spencer. “So I picked up my brother Fred, who is an artist and musician, and moved here.” That was in 1976. Since then, Spencer has made a name for himself with his neoclassic oil paintings that typically start with 2 x 3" pencil sketches. “It all starts with the thumbnails,” he says. “I discover subjects and themes in the process of developing the works.” He then recreates them in charcoal and eventually paints “cathedral-, sofa-, and bathroom-size oil paintings,” many of which can be found locally at Nüart Gallery. The people in his action-filled scenes reference historical and mythical figures in complex compositions that depict symbolic stories.—Cristina Olds Nüart Gallery, nuartgallery.com

Nancy Reyner

contemporary acrylic painting with gold leaf What do an artist and a scientist have in common? They both like to invent things and experiment with possibilities. “Invention is the process of discovering your own personal vision as an artist or inventor,“ says acrylic artist pioneer Nancy Reyner. Originally thinking that she was meant for a career in physics or chemistry, Reyner realized that she loved art in high school. “The smart kids took science,” Reyner remembers. “I was fearful that people would think I wasn’t smart if I went into art. When I realized that, I knew I’d rather face my fear with my first choice than choose my second choice.” Reyner, who was attracted to the versatile properties of acrylic painting, went on to write three books about the medium (Acrylic Revolution, Acrylic Innovation, and Acrylic Illuminations) and is currently working on a fourth about helping artists self-evaluate their paintings. Now, with more than 30 years of experience as a fine-art painter, lecturer, and exhibitor, Reyner has gained sought-after technical expertise. Painting on materials as varied as paper, cardboard, metal, and glass, Reyner teaches her students to see in innovative ways and encourages viewers of her work to see a familiar scene in a new way. “I like to have the viewer be open to interpretation.”—Joanna Smith nancyreyner.com

Reyner uses three layers of brilliance: gold metal leaf, transparent acrylic paint with a glaze mixture, and opaque paint.

Reyner applies gold leaf to her creation.

Reyner has been known to consult on varnish emergencies and carries a medical-type “black bag,” complete with artistic triage tools. 24

Billy Schenck, The Trail to Dripping Springs, oil on canvas, 40 x 40"

“This is the best work of my career,” says Billy Schenck of paintings that will appear in his solo show at Sorrel Sky Gallery from August 7–21. “Any artist will tell you that about what they’re working on, but I really think it’s true. Anyone who sees [the 12 new paintings] and is familiar with my work will tell you so. There’s a continual [evolution] in the subject matter. I’m older, smarter, and I’ve been doing it for 45 years.” Inspired by romantic remembrances of the West and pop art, Schenck draws upon images from Western novels, magazine ads, and black-and-white movie stills to paint intentionally varied Southwestern subjects, from cowboys and Puebloan people to landscapes. “I don’t like the idea of being pigeonholed or repetitive,” he says. The Santa Fean’s work is included in more than 40 museum and private collections, including the Denver Art Museum, the Whitney Gallery of Western Art, and the Smithsonian Institution. He’s held dozens of solo exhibitions and been honored at numerous sales and festivals. In the upcoming Jackson Fall Arts Festival, for example, 13 Minutes from Eternity will be the featured painting.

“Billy is the one of the most important and influential contemporary western artists at this time,” says Shanan Campbell Wells, owner of Sorrel Sky. “His legacy may be hard to grasp for your average collector. This particular show includes paintings that capture the best of what Billy is known for.” Although Sorrel Sky regularly represents Schenck, the artist says he’s reserved some of his best new work for the upcoming show. Schenck focused his eye and palette on dusk, rending his subjects to high dramatic effect, as in Pueblo Women, which portrays a central figure with her back to the viewer. Then, after a year and a half of rendering evening light, Schenck challenged himself with The Trail to Dripping Springs (pictured) portraying three Navajo riders pausing at a rock outcropping. “It was hard for me to back up and paint a midday painting,” he remembers. “It took a real restraint of palette in the grass, sand, and sky, so the more vivid color could come up in the figures, and it worked.” Billy Schenck, August 7–21, reception August 7, 5–7:30 pm, free, Sorrel Sky Gallery, 125 W Palace, sorrelsky.com August 6, 2015 NOW 25

the local musician performs motivational songs at the Santa Fe Yoga Festival

Local singer-songwriter Chris Chickering will use his music to inspire others when he opens for Michael Franti and Spearhead at Fort Marcy Park on August 8. “It’s a big honor to open for Franti because he’s an artist I deeply admire and respect,” Chickering says. “From a heart level, I resonate so much with where he’s coming from, which is recognizing the power of music to heal people and bring people together. That’s exactly in alignment with my intention.” The performance, part of the Santa Fe Yoga Festival, will also include Chickering’s band, The Now, which features an impressive line up of local talent: Brian Hardgroove, bass player and bandleader for 2013 Rockn-Roll Hall of Fame inductees Public Enemy; Greg Barnhill, Emmy Award-winning, Grammy-nominated songwriter; Jonas Nahoum, who recorded with Public Enemy; and Pablo Champion, a classically-trained musician and teacher at New Mexico School for the Arts. In his previous career as a corporate businessman, Chickering ran a talent agency that represented professional motivational speakers; he subsequently became familiar with the literature espousing personal growth. The self-taught musician adopted the tagline “music for positive change” for his folk-rock sound and started writing the first of four albums of original folk-rock music. The fifth, Regeneration, will be released this fall. “Music has moved me to do things I wouldn’t have thought possible,” Chickering says. “My mission is to use

Celebrating 34 years in business this month, the Video Library knows how to fill a niche. The small shop on Paseo de Peralta rents films on DVD, Blu-Ray, and even VHS—the latter of which have a nostalgic popularity that Harris equates to music produced on vinyl. “If [a movie] fails in the rest of world, it will succeed for us,” says Lisa Harris, who owns the business with her husband, Casey St. Charnez. The couple and their staff know the likes and dislikes of their longtime customers and are often asked to suggest movies specific to their tastes. “The Internet is great if you know exactly what you’re looking for,” Harris says, “but just like in a bookstore or music store, some of the best things I’ve found were recommended by the person standing next to me.”—Cristina Olds 839 Paseo de Peralta, 505-983-3321 August 6, 2015 NOW 27

Broomdust Caravan Since its creation in 2010 (right here in Santa Fe!), Broomdust Caravan has committed to authenticity and living in the moment—which made for a lively show and a captivated audience at the Santa Fe Bandstand on July 14. With a variety of instruments, including a fiddle and a string bass, the band carried a blend of Americana and cosmic country laced with spiritual lyrics. Frontman Johny Broomdust hopes his music inspires people to “become aware of love, light, an infinite spiritual being, and human incarnation [via lyrics] of ponderous poetry that will make them move.” Winners of an array of local awards, the band will perform at the 2015 International Balloon Fiesta in October and is releasing a new CD, The Healing Tree, in December. “Our goal is to do what we were born to do,” says vocalist Felecia Ford. “People here are so full of love and give us so much by responding to what we’re here for. There’s nothing like people walking in, [hearing our music], and letting everything go.” —Elizabeth Sanchez
