publisher’s note

|

Our town is getting ready for the holidays. We all agree that Santa Fe does Christmas like no other place; our traditions are rich and run deeply. You can feel and see the holiday spirit on our streets. The lights on the Plaza are an amazing display of color. Add a little snow, and the enchantment intensifies. We are also seeing the farolitos adorning the tops of many of the buildings around town. The combination sets Santa Fe apart.. In case you haven’t been downtown in a while, holiday shopping is the perfect reason to go. There are opportunities to find one-of-a-kind gifts at just about every shop or gallery. There’s a magic in the streets that you just don’t feel at the mall or online. It needs to be experienced in person and soaked in. When you get thirsty or hungry from your shopping escapades, our local downtown restaurants provide a warm, cozy environment. There’s even free parking downtown on Saturdays to encourage you to shop locally. Visitors come from all over the country to experience Christmas Santa Fe-style. I’m hoping you’ll join me in all Santa Fe has to offer in December. We don’t have far to go to feel that Santa Fe holiday magic. I hope it is very special for you.

2017 Winter Indian Market December 16–17 sees 150 artists showing and selling their work at La Fonda on the Plaza. Organized by Southwestern Association for Indian Arts, better known as SWAIA, Winter Indian Market includes music, dance, and a Native Santa Claus as well as Native artists showing jewelry, sculpture, pottery, and more. Painter Nocona Burgess (Comanche), stone and bronze sculptor Greyshoes (Upton Ethelbah, Jr.) (Santa Clara Pueblo/White Mountain Apache), and potter Marcellus Medina (Zia Pueblo) are among the artists showing at this event. Whether you are a serious collector, are looking for last-minute Christmas gifts, or just enjoy the gentler pace of SWAIA’s smaller event, Winter Indian Market is a must for your December calendar.—Lisa Van Sickle Winter Indian Market, December 16, 9 am– 5 pm, December 17, 10 am–3 pm, $10, $15 for both days, La Fonda on the Plaza, 100 E San Francisco, swaia.org

Champagne, Chocolates & Cheer The annual fundraiser for the Santa Fe Artists’ Medical Fund (SFAMF) is always one of the biggest parties of the holiday season. About 250 professional artists create 6 x 6" artwork, and 600 or more people show up for a silent auction, glasses of bubbly, and chocolates. Bidding gets fierce! The idea for SFAMF began in 1996, when artist Armond Lara became concerned about the number of his peers unable to buy health insurance, and the financial burdens they faced if injury or serious illness struck. (While laws taking effect in 2014 made it possible for all individuals to buy insurance, the fund is still needed to help with expenses.) Over the last 21 years, several hundred artists have benefitted. Expect to see pieces from many of your favorite Santa Fe artists, and keep a close eye on the pieces you want to take home, lest someone outbid you when you’re not looking.—LVS E v ent

The Cathedral Basilica provides a perfect setting for Santa Fe Desert Chorale's holiday concerts.

The Nutcracker Aspen Santa Fe Ballet (ASFB) presents the annual performances of The Nutcracker December 16–17. More than 60 dancers—drawn from ASFB’s professional ranks, visiting artists, and students of all ages from the School of the Aspen Santa Fe Ballet—fill the stage at the Lensic Performing Arts Center for four performances. E. T. A. Hoffman’s story, set to P. I. Tchaikovsky’s score, debuted 125 years ago in St. Petersburg. Although not considered a success at first, it has become a staple of the holiday season. Since the choreography utilizes several styles of dance, ASFB brings a Chinese ribbon dancer, a Russian couple, and an aerialist to the stage for sections of the ballet, as well as the more typical toe shoes and of course, tutus galore.—LVS performance

The Nutcracker, December 16 at 2 pm and 7:30 pm and December 17 at 1 pm and 5 pm, $36–$94, Lensic Performing Arts Center, 211 W San Francisco, aspensantafeballet.com

Below: A fierce battle between soldiers and an army of mice, led by the Rat King, is a highlight of Act I of the ballet. In ASFB’s production, an actual storybook keeps the plot moving along.

performance The winter holidays demand song, and no one does it any better than Santa Fe Desert Chorale. Home for the Holidays, the chorale’s annual winter program, premieres Saturday. The group is made up of 24 singers from across the country, selected by audition. Some are in their debut seasons, while others have come to Santa Fe to sing for ten years or more. Music Director Joshua Habermann has selected traditional and less familiar carols and lullabies for the concert series. The two oldest pieces are from Spain: Tomás Luis Victoria’s Ave Regina Caelorum, a 16th century setting of a 12th century prayer; and Ríu Ríu Chíu, a Spanish carol attributed to Mateo Flecha, also writing in the 16th century. Contemporary composers are well represented, including Americans Eric Whitacre and Bryan Johanson. After an intermission, the concerts conclude with settings of familiar Christmas songs, carols, and spirituals.—LVS

GLOW 2017 When contemplating December activities, a walk through a botanical garden may not seem like an obvious choice. When it’s December 15–31 at the Santa Fe Botanical Garden (SFBG), it’s a great choice. Every Above: Santa Fe Botanical Garden is evening from 5–8 pm elaborately lit for GLOW. (except December 24 and 25) SFBG presents GLOW 2017. Thousands of lights illuminate the Garden’s plants, a laser show lights up the sky, and various art exhibits are lit to enjoy as well. A different group provides entertainment each evening, and performers include Mariachi Buenaventura, bluegrass band Railyard Reunion, and drag performer Bella Gigante. Food and drink are available, and the gift shop stays open for holiday shopping.—LVS e v ent

She continues to use the techniques and materials handed down through her family, building pots by hand from coils of native Hopi clay and pitfiring them in the traditional way. The matriarch of Hopi pottery, Nampeyo, was Sahmie’s greatgrandmother. The gallery will display works from all five generations of this esteemed Hopi family.—LVS

’Tis the Golden Season Patina Gallery 131 W Palace patina-gallery.com December 15–January 14 Reception December 15, 5–7 pm This winter, all that glitters at Patina Gallery is indeed gold. Owners Ivan and Allison Barnett opened Patina Gallery in 1999, and have carried handmade jewelry since the beginning. ’Tis the Golden Season reflects the magic of gold, and includes paintings, ceramic sculptures, and jewelry. Pat Flynn, a contemporary jeweler from upstate New York, will have pieces in the show. Flynn combines iron with 24-kt gold dust, juxtaposing materials as humble as nails with gold, palladium, and precious stones while playing matte black iron against bright, glittery gold and gems. Flynn understands that fine jewelry is an investment, often purchased to mark special occasions. “I know my jewelry pieces mean a lot to people . . .” he says. “They are so important, such a keepsake.”—LVS All Artists Show: New Works GF Contemporary 707 Canyon gfcontemporary.com December 16–30 Reception December 16, 3–5 pm With all new works from their roster of 16 artists, GF Contemporary hosts a winter show and reception with light refreshments and hot cider.

PREVIEWS

Above: Kiyomi Baird, Warrior, Voices oil on board, 48 x 36 x 1 1/2" OTA Contemporary 203 Canyon otacontemporary.com Through January 25 Reception December 15, 5:30–7 pm OTA Contemporary presents a group show including the work of Kiyomi Baird, Jacob Burmood, David Clark, Carlos Frias, Hernan Gomez Chavez, Mario Martinez, August Muth, Somers Randolph, and Nola Zirin. The work is varied. Randolph sculpts sinuous shapes from stone; Muth creates holographs; Frias, Martinez (Pasqua Yaqui Tribe), and Zirin are all abstract painters—although the work of each is distinct— and Baird’s oil paintings reflect metaphysical concerns and her Japanese heritage. One of Canyon Road’s newest galleries, OTA Contemporary opened earlier in 2017 with a view to “inspire curiosity and human passions.” The work they exhibit is decidedly contemporary. Voices will be the first time Jacob Burmood, sculptor, and David Clark, who works in encaustic monotypes, have shown in Santa Fe.—LVS

Jhenna Quinn Lewis: Solo Exhibition Meyer Gallery 225 Canyon meyergalleries.com December 15–31 Reception December 15, 5–7 pm Jhenna Quinn Lewis’s paintings are studies in contrast. Neutral, almost featureless backgrounds play against highly colored foregrounds. Elements from the natural world are placed in conjunction with manmade objects. Spare composition accents focal points that leave out no detail. A small, single songbird is caught in a rare moment of repose, before again taking flight. Lewis is a still life painter, typically of birds. She is fond of a quote from 18th-century English naturalist Gilbert White: “The language of birds is very ancient, and, like other ancient modes of speech, very elliptical: little is said, but much is meant and understood . . .”. Studies in the Japanese tea ceremony and flower arranging, and appreciation of historic Japanese painting and printmaking also inform her work. The small oil paintings are exquisite in their simplicity, saying little, and in their detail, meaning much.—LVS Left: Jhenna Quinn Lewis, In Anticipation, oil on board, 8 x 6"
