SANTA FE

From the time of the ancient Anasazi, 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.

|

Santa Fe is a top US art center, with museums, shopping, year-round outdoor activities, top-flight restaurants, spas, and world famous cultural events. It’s not just your grandparents’ Santa Fe—it’s walkable, historic, charming, and exciting: a high-desert destination of distinction and fun.

PUBLISHER’S NOTE

2016

|

We finally have the winter that skiers have been craving. This puts everyone in a good mood—even those who don’t enjoy winter sports. It’s reassuring that our mountains have a snow pack that will sustain our water supply through another year. It’s cold out, but there’s plenty happening indoors. In this issue, you’ll find a variety of music: John Rangel’s jazz at El Meson; the Santa Fe Symphony’s presentation of Bizet, Bach, and Shostakovich (my favorite); and Iris Dement’s soulful folk music. All the clubs are busy with music, such as Vanilla Pop at The Palace Restaurant and Saloon. Santa Fe is consistently rated one of the country’s best food destinations. Check out the inaugural Santa Fe Foodie Classic, which features Santa Fe’s best cuisine. It’s time to shake off the post-holiday blues and re-engage with Santa Fe’s many exciting cultural activities, which barely pause in January. I can’t think of a better way to stay warm.

COURTESY SIPAPU SKI & SUMMER RESORT

Sipapu’s Happy Hops Hunt, in its fifth year, has expanded to two dates for 2016: January 16 and February 13.

12 prize-laden Santa Fe Brewing beer cans will be strewn across the advanced sections of Sipapu’s ski area for visitors to find.

brew in the powder OUTDOORS

If skiing wasn’t blissful enough, try it on a mountain packed with beer cans. The fifth annual Happy Hops Hunt at Sipapu Ski Resort dares skiers to find 12 Santa Fe Brewing beer cans hidden throughout the advanced sections of the resort. The 12 cans are, in fact, not filled with beer; but each contains a voucher for a Santa Fe Brewing-related prize, such as clothing. The brewery will host a tent at the bottom of the ski area, where it will distribute prizes and serve beer at marked-down prices. In other words, everyone is a winner for getting to the bottom of the hill. The event has been a hit in the past and Sipapu expanded to two dates this year. “Santa Fe Brewing is always thinking of creative ways to bring their brand to our resort,” says Sipapu Ski and Summer Resort Marketing Director Stacey Glaser.—Jason Strykowski Happy Hops Hunt, January 16 and February 13, free with lift ticket purchase; Sipapu Ski and Summer Resort, 5224 NM 518, Vadito, sipapunm.com

navigate like your ancestors

winter is brewing

There may be no good excuse for getting lost on the way to your in-laws’ house. It turns out that humans have the capacity to navigate the primitive way—and our minds are set up nicely to do it. Physicist John Huth explains the cultural and scientific principles behind early navigation at a School for Advanced Research (SAR) lecture at the New Mexico History Museum on January 21 at 6:30 pm. Huth, Donner Professor of Science at Harvard University, will draw from his recently published book The Lost Art of Finding Our Way. In the book, Huth tells stories of explorers interwoven with the science of navigation. Director of the SAR Michael F. Brown invited Huth because, “as someone who sometimes lets a GPS app bully me into taking wrong turns, I thought that Santa Feans would be interested in John Huth’s fascinating research on the history of human wayfinding—and his views on whether it is destined to become a lost art.”—JS Navigation and the Lost Art of Wayfinding, January 21, 6:30 pm; $10 nonmembers, free for SAR members; New Mexico History Museum (use Washington Avenue entrance), sarweb.org

The fifth annual WinterBrew returns January 15 with more than a dozen local breweries sampling their winter specialties. The lineup this year includes Santa Fe Brewing, Bathtub Row, La Cumbre, Turtle Mountain, Second Street, Santa Fe Hard Cider, Tractor, Duel, Abbey, Bosque, Little Toad Creek, Red Door, Blue Corn, Marble, and Taos Mesa. Event organizer and New Mexico Brewer’s Guild Beer Ambassador Chris Goblet bills WinterBrew as a chance for aficionados to sample both seasonal beers and comfort foods from a handful of local restaurants. “These are really educational events,” says Goblet. A flat fee of $25 gets drinkers a glass, samples, and one free pint. Small food plates and additional full glasses of beer have an extra fee. The tasting runs from 5 to 9 pm on Friday. Last year’s event sold out; the tasting on Friday is limited to 750 tickets, of which most have already sold.—JS

Early navigation expert John Huth is the Donner Professor of Science at Harvard.

SHAWNA JONES

BILL CURRY

Adult Education Coordinator Shawna Jones reads the Santa Fe Botanical Garden Book Club’s first book, The Orchid Thief, in the organization’s library.

Botanical Book Club Missing your summer garden? The Santa Fe Botanical Garden’s new Botanical Book Club might be the perfect antidote to the winter garden blues. “A small group of us decided to stop hosting coffee hours in the library and instead start a book club,” explains the organization’s adulteducation coordinator Shawna Jones. “It’s a way we can keep the garden alive in the cold winter months.” During the first book club meeting, which takes place on January 26 in the Udall Building at Museum Hill, participants discuss The Orchid Thief. This 1998 non-fiction book by journalist Susan Orlean is based on Orlean’s investigation of the 1994 arrest of eccentric plant dealer John Laroche and his crew for poaching rare orchids in the Fakahatchee Strand Preserve State Park in south Florida. Members and non-members of the Santa Fe Botanical Garden are invited to attend the meeting and help choose the book for February’s get-together. Formed in 1987, the Santa Fe Botanical Garden established its home on Museum Hill in 2006 when it acquired a long-term lease from the city of Santa Fe to develop an 11acre botanical garden. Landscape architect W. Gary Smith was hired to create the garden’s master plan, which was approved in 2011. Two years later additional acreage was leased from the City of Santa Fe and the State of New Mexico, bringing the total garden space to 14 acres. The garden’s first phase opened in 2013. A visitor center and second phase are scheduled to open in 2016.—Emily Van Cleve Botanical Book Club, January 26, 1 pm, free, Stewart Udall Building, 725 Camino Lejo, santafebotanicalgarden.org

Chama Chile Ski Classic OUTDOORS

Cross-country skiers from throughout New Mexico and neighboring states have been gathering every January to race at the Chama Chile Ski Classic and Winter Fiesta for more than four decades. “It’s a great time for serious and rookie cross-country skiers to play in the snow together,” says race director Mary Ann DeBoer. The 43rd annual family-friendly event is presented by the Rotary Club of Chama Valley from January 16–18 this year; it usually draws up to 400 participants and spectators. It features freestyle and classic cross-country races; snowshoe and fat-tire snow bike races; yoga classes; a guided snowshoe tour; and a new sledding event. The village of Chama will host a handful of nightlife events January 15, as well as ski clinics throughout the weekend. Online pre-registration is encouraged for most events. Everyone is invited to dress up in insect-themed costumes for a contest during Sunday’s races. “We call it the Chile Ski Classic because we give chile ristras as prizes,” says DeBoer.—EVC Chama Chile Ski Classic, various locations in Chama and the San Juan Mountains, January 15–18, skichama.com

go ahead and get gourmand Instead of dining out at just one of Santa Fe’s elite restaurants this January, try eating at 20. The first Santa Fe Foodie Classic brings together many of Santa Fe’s best-known eateries, distilleries, wineries, and breweries into one weekend event. “The focus of the Santa Fe Foodie Classic is to showcase New Mexico flavors,” says event organizer Micaela Brown. Festivities begin on Friday, January 15 with a seven-course meal at the Eldorado Hotel & Spa prepared by Chef Tony Smith of the Old House Restaurant. National Institute of Flamenco dancers will provide the entertainment. The event then moves into the Santa Fe Convention Center on Saturday for the Grand Tasting, where dozens of restaurants including Artichoke Café, Osteria d’Assisi, The Chocolate Smith, and Georgia will offer samples of their dishes. There will be local beer, wine, and liquor to pair with the food. Drinks continue at the after-party in the Cava Lounge at the Eldorado. The Foodie Classic wraps up on Sunday at the Santa Fe School of Cooking with a competition and cooking demonstration by local chefs. Event organizers expect 2,000 attendees on Saturday and the limited seats at the competition to sell out.—JS   Santa Fe Foodie Classic; various locations, prices, and times (see calendar January 15–17); santafefoodieclassic.com January 14, 2016 NOW 3

AT THE END OF EACH SEMESTER, Santa Fe University of Art and Design’s graduating students wrap up the experimental phase of their artistic careers with a thesis project to introduce themselves to the professional art world. Recent grad Tiffany Hanna has combined her passions for art and animals in a unique fundraising project that supports both. A dog enthusiast by nature, Hanna created a thought-provoking series of 15 sweet shelter dog portraits designed to foster exposure for the animals. These paintings are available for auction on Hanna’s artist page on Facebook (see below) until January 31. Bidding begins at $50, and 100% of the proceeds will be Caspian, oil on masonite, donated to Animal Humane 7 x 4" New Mexico. Hanna hopes that not only her paintings, but also some of her subjects will succeed in finding new homes. Originally from Edgewood, New Mexico, Hanna has already raised $400 from pieces sold at the university’s BFA Thesis Show, Arbitrary Ground, proving that she is already succeeding in what she “ultimately want[s] to do: to help the community.” Hanna plans to continue her caninecommunity involvement projects here in the state after graduation. now facebook.com/WorksbyTiffany

IF YOU ASK BEN HAGGARD what’s important about a human face, the answer is “energy.” “I’m not interested so much in capturing the likeness,” says the Santa Fe artist and ecological design consultant who has painted and drawn more than 700 faces, “as I am [in] what people are really all about inside.” Sixty of the 195 acrylic on canvas portraits from Haggard’s 20102013 Faces Santa Fe project are on display in a special show opening at SITE Santa Fe on January 22. Each 32-inch by 24-inch painting was created under the same working conditions. Haggard’s friends, and friends of his friends, ranging in age from 8 to 80, took turns sitting in the same chair for the same length of time (two hours) while Haggard did a quick 24-inch by 18-inch painted sketch (his version of a warm-up exercise) followed by the painting. “The rules I made for myself were to keep each session uniform in every way and never to edit my work,” Haggard adds. “Most of the time Ben Haggard, Emily Stern, acrylic on canvas, 32 x 24" the painting turned out to be a stronger work than the sketch, but sometimes the sketch was more powerful.” Some people loved their portraits. Others hated them, or were shocked or amused. “One of the most emotional reactions came from a woman sitting for me in my Faces Berlin project that I created during the same years I was working on my Faces Santa Fe project,” Haggard says. “She burst into tears when she saw her portrait because she saw the turmoil in her personal life reflected in the painting.” Ben Haggard: Faces Santa Fe, January 22–February 14; reception January 22, 5–7 pm, SITE Santa Fe, 1606 Paseo de Peralta, sitesantafe.org January 14, 2016 NOW 11

Hollywood stars Michael Welch (Twilight) and Travis Hammer (Manhattan) visited The Film School at Santa Fe University of Art and Design in November to participate in the fourth season of Shoot the Stars!, a program that trains SFUAD’s BFA students in all aspects of film production, from pre- to post-, and gives them the opportunity to work with seasoned professional actors. Welch and Hammer are starring in two short projects (Hate Me Gently and Karkutong) that were written, directed, produced, and edited by The Film School students.—Anne Maclachlan

Failure of Modernity Peters Projects, 1011 Paseo de Peralta petersprojects.com Through March 12 Kent Monkman’s poignant, perturbing acrylics examine the clash of worldviews between ancient indigenous cultures and contemporary society, and the consequences of the West’s troubled history of co-opting Native aesthetics, narratives, and traditions. Surrealistic scenes in a realistic style, his vast paintings evoke the breakdown of nostalgic Americana as well as the struggle of Natives who feel marginalized and exploited in a modernizing world. Monkman, with both Irish and Cree blood, virtually embodies his subject matter. Much of his work can be read as a personal response to depictions of First Nations people by such historical artists as fellow Irish-Canadian Paul Kane. His stated goal is to “[construct] new stories through images that take into account the missing narratives and perspectives of Aboriginal peoples.” Failure of Modernity will remain on display at Peters Projects through March 12.—Dylan Syverson Guadalupe Eye on the Mountain Gallery 614 Agua Fria eyeonthemountaingallery.com Through February 29 Embracing the heritage of Santa Fe, this year’s annual Guadalupe show curates a wide selection of artists to portray their perspective and style—contemporary or traditional—on the spiritual subject. The artworks featured may include abstraction, expression, and representation; they will reflect each artist’s personal interpretation of the Guadalupe icon. Since this show encourages many conventional and unconventional materials and processes, each piece will be entirely unique. Last year’s Guadalupe-themed group show gained press nationally and internationally, and is gaining momentum as a beloved Santa Fe gallery event.—Stephanie Love

Lloyd Kiva New fa s h i o n i n g t he f ut ure of Nati ve desi gns

Lloyd Kiva New in front of Kiva Craft Center, Scottsdale, Arizona, c. 1956.

Unnamed artwork by Lloyd Kiva New, Scottsdale, Arizona, c. 1952. Right: Lloyd Kiva New in the textile printing studio with an IAIA student, c. 1965.

LLOYD KIVA NEW MAY HAVE HAD humble beginnings on an Oklahoma farm, but he went on to become the first American Indian designer to participate in an international fashion show. In 1946, he set up a Scottsdale, Arizona, studio where he blended Cherokee, Hopi, and other traditional Native designs into modern-day fashions for Neiman Marcus. But that was just the first phase of his career. His second, as an educator, was even further-reaching. Marking the year of what would have been his 100th birthday, the Museum of Contemporary Native Arts is honoring New with a threepart exhibition, Lloyd Kiva New: Art, Design, & Influence, opening January 22. A reception will be held on February 18, 5–7 pm. The exhibit includes New’s personal artworks, a model of his design studio, and a look at his pedagogy. It feels close to home for the Institute of American Indian Art museum, since New, having founded IAIA with Dr. George Boyce in 1962 as a design laboratory, was the first art director and a longtime president of the institute. “Lloyd’s ultimate influence was based on his concepts of taking Native art out of this preconceived box and opening it up to 20th-century people. He left a profitable career as a designer and an entrepreneur to educate people,” says Ryan S. Flahive, IAIA archivist and one of the organizers of the exhibition, along with curator Tatiana Lomahaftewa-Singer. Part one of the exhibit focuses on New’s artworks. Prior to opening his studio, he was a World War II ship artist, capturing the Battle of Iwo Jima from the deck of the U.S.S. Sanborn. Once stateside, he

painted the local landscape, including the Puye Cliff Dwellings. New’s watercolors and oils show his strong aesthetic, including the color clashing that would later become part of his fashion designs. The second facet of the exhibit features a mockup of New’s design studio, where at one point he employed 15 artists who created items such as bronze Native symbols to embellish his famed Kiva handbags. The final aspect gives a nod to New’s influence as a teacher, highlighting his students’ textile designs. “It shows how he got students to rethink their designs, explore color, and experiment in a large scale,” says Lomahaftewa-Singer. “He taught them how to bring traditional into the contemporary.” That, the exhibition organizers agree, is New’s most lasting influence—it’s an ethos IAIA still follows today. The Museum of Contemporary Native Arts exhibition is the first in what promises to be a year dedicated to New’s gifts. Exhibitions are opening at the Museum of Indian Arts & Culture (A New Century: The Life and Legacy of Cherokee Artist and Educator Lloyd “Kiva” New, February 13–January 1, 2017) and the New Mexico Museum of Art (Finding a Contemporary Voice: The Legacy of Lloyd Kiva New and IAIA, May 20–October 9). The Sound of Drums, New’s memoir (which Flahive edited), is also slated for release this year.
