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

|

Recently I spent time with a visiting friend, wandering the galleries as a viewer and not as magazine publisher. I was even somewhat incognito, which made it more fun. I applaud the friendliness the gallery community showed to us as we wormed our way through our art tour—nothing but smiles and welcoming hearts. This is the perfect time of the year for it, when the galleries are a little quieter and the art can be enjoyed without distraction. After your art-focused meanderings, you might want to consider some nightlife to help snap those winter doldrums. Good news! There is so much entertainment available. Musically, there’s Tucker Binkley, Ramon Bermudez, Pat Malone, Doug Montgomery, Barbara Bentree, Ronald Roybal, Three Faces of Jazz, Branden James, Nosotros, Sean Healen, Nacha Mendez, and Steve Poltz, who are playing their unique brands of music around town over the next few weeks. (There are more musical performers, but this will entice you to look at the calendar and get motivated.) Comedienne Paula Poundstone will be at the Lensic. She’s a great example of adversity providing material for creativity. I’ve seen her act before, and it had me howling.    Other entertaining events include fundraisers like The Taos Winter Wine Festival. Closer to home, the 22nd annual Souper Bowl is a foodie heaven and provides the perfect food for this time of year. And finally, on Saturday, February 6, The Cancer Foundation for New Mexico hosts its annual Valentine-themed Sweetheart Auction, with a dinner and dessert buffet by Peas ‘N’ Pod, an open bar, silent and live auctions, a dream vacation raffle, and more. This is must-attend event, and it supports such an important cause. Whatever you choose to do, above all, stay warm and have fun.

Sixty ounces of soup in 120 minutes—it’s not exactly an athletic event, but the Souper Bowl will stretch your stomach and challenge your taste buds. The Souper Bowl hosts chefs from 29 Santa Fe–area restaurants. Each eatery is asked to prepare a soup that fits one of four categories: cream, seafood, savory, and vegetarian. The assignment is random. Some chefs use popular soups from their restaurants; others prepare special ones just for the event. To cleanse the palate between two-ounce samples, tasters sip coffee from Starbucks or water from Water Boyz. During the tasting, attending gourmets vote for their favorite soup in each category and one “best of show” overall champion. A scoreboard tracks the votes. The tastings stop at 2 pm—in time to tally the votes and have a little dessert. “My favorite aspect of the event is that a community comes together to celebrate something that makes it unique,” says Jill Gentry regarding the many restaurants that participate. Gentry, Director of Development at the Food Depot, also says that the money raised at the event helps the Food Depot distribute food to other nonprofits in the area. They provide 335,000 meals each month. Tickets are available in person at the Lensic box office at 211 W San Francisco, and may also be purchased by phone through the Lensic box office at 505-988-1234.—Jason Strykowski Souper Bowl, January 30, noon to 2:30 pm, $30 ($35 at door, ages 6–12 $10, ages 5 and under free), Santa Fe Convention Center, 201 W Marcy, thefooddepot.org/SouperBowl

JONATHAN RICHARDS

the bard and the satirist at the Lensic In the 19th century, the greatest rock star in the United States was a long-dead playwright. “Miners and frontiersmen and families traveling west seemed to have at least two essential books in their packs: the Bible, and the works of Shakespeare,” says political cartoonist Jon Richards. “Passions over Shakespeare even led to a riot in New York City in 1849.” Along with retired American Studies professor Lois Rudnick, Richards wrote an homage to Shakespeare that imagines the bard in conversation with one of his biggest fans and detractors—19th-century writer-humorist Mark Twain. Richards and Rudnick created the original performance piece thanks to a mutual obsession with Twain and Shakespeare. Their project evolved into a stage play with Richards as Shakespeare, Bob Martin as Twain, and local author Valerie Plame as the MC. “I hope the audience will be enlightened, entertained, and leave with an ever greater respect for the extraordinary brilliance and the supple prose/ poetry of these two literary titans,” says Rudnick.—JS Two of the English language’s most legendary figures will square off on the Lensic stage January 31.

COURTESY AMP CONCERTS

musician Steve Poltz at the Cocteau Singer-songwriter Steve Poltz looks forward to his first concert in the Jean Cocteau Cinema. Aside from the fact that he’s eager to get his hands on some green chile, he enjoys playing in intimate spaces. “I like it when you can tell a story [that’s] kind of got a little bit of theater action in it, a little bit of comedy,” he says. Poltz was born in Halifax, Canada, but spent his formative years in San Diego, California, where he got started as a musician in a band called The Rugburns. Poltz co-wrote the song “You Were Meant for Me,” which became a smash hit for the singer Jewel. He later splintered off into his own act and now spends 220 days per year on tour playing solo acoustic in what he calls his “really slow speed metal” style (folk rock). He frequently serenades crowds with renditions of his songs “Folk Singer” and “Hand Job on a Church Bus.”—JS Steve Poltz, January 31, 7:30 pm, $17–$22, Jean Cocteau Cinema, 418 Montezuma, jeancocteaucinema.com Steve Poltz will bring his quirky musical style and guitar technique to the Cocteau January 31.

Cancer Foundation for New Mexico’s 11th annual Sweetheart Auction

The talents behind Entreflamenco share their skills with the community in free classes each week.

Unlike denizens of many American cities, Santa Feans are accustomed to the sights and sounds of a graceful, tightly rehearsed flamenco performance. Now, anyone with a secret wish to join in that seemingly effortless elegance can get their start free of charge and irrespective of age. Entreflamenco, in their recently opened space on Camino Carlos Rey, has begun offering free, weekly community and youth instruction. Directors Estefania Ramirez and Antonio Granjero aim to share flamenco with all interested locals, despite the discipline’s highly technical and studied nature. Says Granjero, “Giving back to the community and making quality arts and culture programming accessible to everyone is our priority.”—Dylan Syverson Free youth flamenco classes Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, 4:30–5:30 pm; free community classes Wednesdays, 5:30–6:30 pm; Santa Fe School of Flamenco, 1730 Camino Carlos Rey #5, entreflamenco.com

Miles Standish Inspirations from the Natural World: Works in Silver and Gold with Precious Stones Malouf on the Plaza 61 Old Santa Fe Trl

MaloufOnThePlaza.com February 6–7 Proud to present the latest works by Santa Fe jewelry artist Miles Standish, Malouf on the Plaza’s weekend trunk show will feature pieces in both silver and gold. As one of the shop’s established artists, Standish explains that the medium is inherently his: “I sometimes feel as though the silver chooses me.” He draws imagery and form from his natural surroundings and environment; from cloud shapes to the curve of a leaf, the expanse of a bird’s wing to a seashell’s texture, Standish finds beauty in many organic places and has crafted his inspirations into silver since age 20.—Stephanie Love

regarding the revolution: the 1960s In 1969, Lisa Law, along with 94 other members of the storied Hog Farm commune, jumped aboard an American Airlines charter jet and headed to Woodstock. “We were the ones who helped everybody, took care of people who were tripping; and I was part of the feeding [crew],” says Law. “I was the one that got money from the producers and went to New York and got $6,000 worth of supplies.” With these, Law and her friends cooked healthy meals, like muesli, for 200,000 concertgoers. One of the cleavers used to chop vegetables is on display at Flashing on the Sixties: A Trip Back to the Garden, an exhibit Law curated at El Museo Cultural. Also featured are collage art from entertainer and activist Wavy Gravy, and Law’s own Woodstock photos. Law is perhaps best known for her historic photographs of musicians from the 1960s. She began taking pictures as a child, but truly found her form while working for the manager of the Kingston Trio. Through this job, Law made a number of acquaintances in music and entertainment, and managed to get backstage and into recording sessions. She used her camera to document performers like Sonny & Cher, Otis Redding, Velvet Underground,

the Byrds, Tiny Tim, and many others. She also captured portraits of a particularly noteworthy tenant who stayed at her Los Angeles home—affectionately called “The Castle”—and these pictures of Bob Dylan remain among her most iconic. They are included among the 150 photographs on display. In 1967, Lisa and her husband Tom Law moved from Los Angeles to New Mexico to farm in the Truchas area. Her visual record of this period in her life is on display in the exhibit as well, as are clothes Law herself knitted from the fur of her dogs. These souvenirs document early movements in sustainability and eco-conscientiousness pioneered by Law and her cohorts at the New Buffalo Commune near Taos, and by many others during the period. “The ’60s were a very important time,” observes Law, “whereas the press would make you think it was just drugs, sex, and rock & roll.” now Flashing on the Sixties: A Trip Back to the Garden, Tuesdays–Saturdays through February 27th, 1–5 pm, admission by donation, El Museo Cultural, 555 Camino de la Familia, elmuseocultural.org

Santa Fe Art Classes

“Al l t he w o r l d’s a s tag e ”

r e a l i zi n g c r e at iv e po t e n t i a l i n 2 0 1 6 by Ash le y M. Big ge rs

WHETHER YOUR NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTION is to be more creative, to try something new, or to take time for yourself, Santa Fe Art Classes checks all the boxes. Part workshop center, part art sanctuary, it offers instruction in painting and creative journaling. Artist Robbi Firestone—best known for her portraits of musicians, actors, and global visionaries—founded the novice-friendly center and teaches many of the classes. As strongly as artistic muses have pulled her, so has a desire to build a safe space for other people to experience their own creativity—and that’s just what Firestone has created in a cozy downtown adobe on Old Santa Fe Trail. During two-hour “Paint Moment” sessions, teachers Sharon Markwardt, Jean Oppermann, and Lisa Adams Reed guide students through creating a piece from scratch. From among 40 class options, attendees choose a day and time based on the scene they wish to paint; be it a sunflower, the Virgin of Guadalupe, or a classic New Mexico landscape. There’s no paint-bynumbers here, but facilitators do offer step-bystep instructions. Even those who have never painted can easily create a piece that resembles the model. As closely as students might follow the guidance shared, they are also encouraged to take chances, which (depending on the student) can mean choosing green instead of blue, or diverging from the subject entirely. There are no mistakes here; and by taking a risk, most students emerge energized and empowered.

Local organizations are getting in on the First Folio fever, including the Upstart Crows youth drama troupe.

The London Academy of Dramatic Arts will stage a series of acting workshops; here, LAMDA’s Joanna Read rehearses.

ASPIRING TO PUT SANTA FE on the Shakespearean map, the International Shakespeare Center (ISC) presents First Folio! The Book that Gave Us Shakespeare, an exhibit of an original edition of the First Folio touring from the Folger Shakespeare Library. Dedicated to its ambitious agenda, ISC has partnered with the New Mexico Museum of Art and the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts (LAMDA) to bring Shakespeare education and performance to the City Different. “We have the Santa Fe Opera as a model,” says ISC board member Caryl Farkas. “We know world-class arts can thrive in Santa Fe if the organization aims for the best and never compromises. The ISC can make Santa Fe a destination for Shakespeare performance, training, and education.” Founding ISC members Dr. Robin Williams and Dr. Kristin Bundesen first introduced the touring show to the New Mexico Museum of Art, where it will be on display in February 2016. Seeking top-notch activities to coincide with the exhibition, the ISC invited the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts to present acting and directing workshops on King Lear, Romeo and Juliet, and the Sonnets. LAMDA maintains high regard in the theatrical arts, with esteemed alumni such as Benedict Cumberbatch, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and John Lithgow. ISC partners include the New Mexico Museum of Art, the Santa Fe Opera, the New Mexico History Museum, and the International Folk Art Museum, who assist the ISC through venues, fundraising, and marketing. Together, they’ll provide a summer series of acting workshops; support for reading groups across the country; a youth Shakespeare festival during the school year; and a conference about community building through Shakespearean plays.—Stephanie Love First Folio!

style For those who wish to follow the whispers of creativity in another direction, Firestone and Adams Reed also lead “Vision Board/Journaling” classes that playfully guide participants through uncovering their subconscious desires and inspirations. The facilitators set the mood with music, serve tea, and lead rituals to entice participants on a creative adventure that can help them realize their resolutions all year long. now Paint Moment; themed classes Thursdays 6–8 pm, $45; beginner classes Saturdays, 10 am–12 pm, $45; Santa Fe Art Classes, 621 Old Santa Fe Trl Ste 16, santafeartclasses.com SPECIAL ADVERTISING SECTION

Along with producing their own delicious food source, bees create habitats that are healthy and sustainable. The Hive Market honors this lifestyle by selling food products that share these same core values.

gift

guide Tresa Vorenberg Goldsmiths Celebrating Love for Over 40 Years! 10–50% Off! All items in stock. “Thank You Days” Sale in February. Wildly imaginative handcrafted designer jewelry by 35 artists. Located on Santa Fe’s historic Canyon Road. 656 Canyon Road 505-988-7215  TVGoldsmiths.com

AS ITS BEE-RELATED NAME SUGGESTS, downtown’s newest pop-up general store, The Hive Market, shares its owner Greg Menke with The Beestro just up the street. Honey connoisseurs will rejoice at The Hive Market’s numerous options; however, Menke’s naming choice refers to more than honey. From Southwest classics like salsa and chile ristras to fresh produce and jams, bees pollinate a wide variety of crops that are vital to products sold at both locations. Pop-up business models have been integral to Menke’s success, including the creperie that preceded The Beestro; and The Hive Market (at the former location of nightclubs Rouge Cat and Blue Rooster) will be no different. Upon selecting a roster of local artisanal food producers, he collaborated with the landlord to test The Hive Market’s success over the holidays. Emphasizing health and sustainable agriculture, all products at The Hive Market are grown and produced in New Mexico; they exclude MSG, corn syrup, and artificial coloring; and all are non-GMO. There’s even an interactive “make your own gift basket” idea that allows customization and is unique to the store. Rather than competing with the Farmers Market, this location is open seven days a week. Following their holiday pop-up market, The Hive Market will continue its focus on sustainability, being even more honey-centric yearround. Menke says that his ultimate goal for the store is “building community through food.” As he says, “that’s what a bee does when it builds a hive.” —Stephanie Love The Hive Market, Mondays–Wednesdays 9 am–6 pm; Thursdays 9 am–3 pm; Saturdays and Sundays 11–6 pm; 101 W Marcy, facebook.com/TheHiveMarketSantaFe January 28, 2016 NOW 13
