SHOPPING IN 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.

PUBLISHER’S NOTE

2015 |

THIS WEEKEND, ARTFEAST’S Edible Art Tour takes over Santa Fe’s galleries. The tour has traditionally been held in February alongside other ARTfeast events, but this year, in an effort to spread out the fun and allow participants to gallery hop in nice, warm weather, the organizers have moved it to June. If you’ve never experienced the Edible Art Tour, the best way to describe it is that it’s similar to Halloween, expect you’re going from gallery to gallery and, instead of receiving candy, you’re fed delectable food (and sometimes wine) from Santa Fe’s top restaurants. The idea is that you can enjoy both great art and great food in one glorious moment, when all your senses are stimulated and satisfied. Santa Fean magazine is proud to be this year’s underwriter for this fabulous event. I first became involved with ARTfeast nearly 10 years ago and have enthusiastically supported it ever since because I so believe in its commitment to funding art programs, materials, and scholarships for Santa Fe’s schoolchildren. Without ARTfeast, the level of education and opportunities for these budding talents would be drastically reduced. When you see the look in the eyes of local art teachers, that’s when you fully appreciate what this event does for the lives of local children. For the love of art, the love of food, and the love of children, I encourage you to get your tickets by going to artfeast.org or stopping by The Lensic’s box office. In another new development, this year the Edible Art Tour is being held on two nights rather than one, so you’ll have plenty of time to see all the art and eat lots of wonderful food. This is another unique event that only Santa Fe can boast. Bruce Adams

Currents: Santa Fe International New Media Festival

From June 12 through June 28, 124 artists from 18 states and 21 countries will exhibit innovative, technology-centered works in Santa Fe as part of the sixth annual Currents: Santa Fe International New Media Festival. “You can expect art videos, Web art, 3-D printed objects, and interactive installations with video and sound where your presence will alter the presentation,” says Frank Ragano, co-executive director of Parallel Studios. The nonprofit, which aims to reinvigorate creativity in the arts by encouraging community participation, has been producing video installations in the City Different for 13 years and launched Currents in 2010. The festival’s opening weekend offers multimedia performances, installations, music, food, drink, and more at El Museo Cultural de Santa Fe and in Railyard Plaza. Additionally, Currents is partnering with Motion Conference 2015 (June 12–14), an annual event that brings together filmmakers, animators, VFX artists, and other visual storytellers. For a complete list of events and venues, and to get a sneak peek at some of the works featured in the festival, go to currentsnewmedia.org. —Donna Schillinger Kyle Evans, de:Rastra

If you’ve ever attended a Saturday morning JoyceGroup session at the Santa Fe Public Library, then you know that Adam Harvey, the group’s leader, is the ultimate Joyce geek (which is a compliment, of course). The creator and star of the acclaimed one-man show Don’t Panic: It’s Only Finnegans Wake, Harvey is gearing up for his latest venture, Bloomsday Eleventy-One!, a public celebration of Joyce’s groundbreaking 1922 novel Ulysses, which is set on June 16, 1904. “Whoever came up with the name Bloomsday was very clever indeed, twisting the word ‘doomsday’ to its opposite by invoking the novel’s pacifist hero, one Leopold Bloom, considered by many (myself included) to be the most complete character ever inked,” Harvey says. The day on which Ulysses takes place “was hardly different from any other day in Dublin,” Harvey adds. “Nothing extraordinary happened; people ate, drank, prayed, loved, hated, slept, worked, had sex, went potty, etc. Some were born on that day, some buried, but under the artful hand of master wordsmith James Joyce, everyone was immortalized.” That immortalization is celebrated around the world every year on June 16 via organized Bloomsday events, and Harvey encourages Santa Feans to join in on the fun with readings, music, and food at Warehouse 21. “Santa Fe is the perfect place to do Bloomsday,” he notes. “The artistic and intellectual community here is a breathtaking mixture of performance artists, actors, filmmakers, academics, musicians, painters, and no small number of Joyce enthusiasts. I’m actually rather stunned at all of the amazing people who said yes to my request for readers,” he adds, citing the likes of Acushla Bastible, Garrick Beck, Mary-Charlotte Domandi, Charles Gamble, Michael Graves, Pen La Farge, Bruce C. McKenna, Bird Thompson, and Alice van Buren, among many others. “Humbling,” he says, “utterly humbling.” No doubt Joyce would be humbled as well. As he stated in Ulysses: “The supreme question about a work of art is out of how deep a life does it spring.”—Whitney Spivey

ANCIENT GREEKS BELIEVED that three things were necessary for the enhancement of life: wine, food, and art. All three collide during the Edible Art Tour (EAT), which allows ticketholders to browse local galleries while sampling food from Santa Fe’s top restaurants. Part of an annual event organized by ARTsmart, a nonprofit that raises money for art programs, materials, and scholarships for local schoolchildren, EAT was traditionally held on one night in February during ARTsmart’s winter ARTfeast celebration. This year’s event, however, will unfold over the course of two summer evenings. Also new this year, EAT will see the largest number of galleries and restaurants participating to date: 42. Downtown galleries will be hosting EAT on Friday, June 12. Attendees can stop by True West (which is partnering with Tomasita’s restaurant), Lacuna (Walter Burke Catering), Blue Rain (Red Sage at Buffalo Thunder), and many other galleries. Sweet Lily Bakery, Skylight, and Sweetwater Harvest Kitchen are among the new additions to EAT’s dining lineup. Canyon Road becomes the center of the action on Saturday, June 13. Perennial participants Ventana Fine Art will join forces with The Pink Adobe, Giacobbe-Fritz Fine Art will serve refreshments from Dinner for Two, and Pippin Contemporary will have

The Review Santa Fe Photo Festival is considered the premier juried portfolio review event in the world. Many photographers seeking career advancement will be present to improve their skills, network, and be “discovered” by experts in the field.

THE CURATOR OF PHOTOGRAPHY FOR The Library of Congress, the editor of The New York Times’ “Lens” blog, and the senior photo editor of Time magazine—to name just a few—will be in Santa Fe June 11–14 for a singular purpose: to attend the 15th annual Review Santa Fe Photo Festival, where they’ll look for rising photography stars who are ready for the national spotlight. During the weekend they’ll also mingle with art aficionados and collectors who’ll have the double fortune of meeting these authorities and purchasing images from up-and-coming shutterbugs before their prices skyrocket. Alex Soth is one such success story. After he participated in Review Santa Fe in 2004, a bidding war for his book Sleeping by the Mississippi ensued, and he went on to become one of the top contemporary photographers in the U.S. Similarly, Jessamyn Lovell appeared on This American Life and The Today Show after participating in the 2014 event. “That’s our goal—for there to be actual outcomes and measurable results,” says Laura Pressley, executive director of Center, the nonprofit that organizes this event and others for talented and committed photographers. Although the festival’s review and critique sessions are private, the 100 participating artists (who hail from 11 countries) are front and center during the portfolio viewing on June 12. The reviewers will be on hand for art critic Lucy Lippard’s keynote address on June 11 and for a dinner on June 13 honoring Anne Wilkes Tucker, the founding (and retiring) curator of the department of photography at Houston’s Museum of Fine Arts. In conjunction with the festival, from June 1 through July 31 the Center for Contemporary Arts (CCA) is hosting the exhibit Immigration, Migration, and Evolving Boundaries, in which, Pressley says, Review Santa Fe alumni display works that respond to a theme that emerged in the “global unconscious” of the 2015 entrants’ portfolios. From June 12 through September 13, CCA will also host The Curve: A Global View of New Photography, which features fine art and documentary works by winners of Center’s 2015 Project Grants and Choice Awards.

The signature house margarita at Del Charro has a reputation, and it’s a delicious one. Not only is the cocktail served in a snazzy beehive shaker large enough to fill your respectably sized salted-rim glass more than twice, but it’s also made with all the best ingredients. Just the right combination of sweet and sour, the drink’s simple mix includes 100 percent pure agave tequila that’s been aged to perfection for two months, triple sec, real lime and lemon juice, and a slice of fresh lime. No wonder it’s a local favorite. —Cristina Olds Del Charro Saloon, 101 W Alameda, delcharro.com

Raaga Pramod “Paddy” Rawal named his restaurant Raaga (“sweet melody” in Hindi) as an homage to jazz music and as a metaphor for the cuisine he creates. “The flavors of the food here tingle the taste buds in your mouth, just like listening to good music does to your ears,” says the Mumbai, India, native. Rawal prepares his dishes, such as the kebabs seen here, with various (yet subtle) spices, so that each one has a distinct flavor. The tandoori shrimp kebab features mango powder, turmeric, cumin, and coriander, and the vegetable kebab is dressed with, among other things, cinnamon, cloves, black peppercorn, and white pepper powder. “I also use ancho chiles for a local twist on traditional Indian spices,” Rawal says. “In this great country, people like grilled, healthy options when they eat Indian food.”—Cristina Olds Raaga, 544 Agua Fria, raagacuisine.com

Erika Wanenmacher

the longtime Santa Fean is known for her thoughtfully crafted, spiritually infused works

“I came to Santa Fe kind of on the way to somewhere else,” Wanenmacher says. “The whole time I was in L.A. [in 1977, while attending the Feminist Studio Workshop], I had New Mexico landscapes in my head.” Wanenmacher creates art whenever she seeks to explore a concept or subject. “My work is idea and material driven,” she says. “What’s going to be the best way to make an idea?”

The artist created Flicker Ghost Dance Robe and Mask after she read about the die-off of flicker birds in the East Mountains.

“I’m a witch,” says Santa Fe artist Erika Wanenmacher. “What I’m making is felt, and that has informed my magical, spiritual, and artistic path.” Wanenmacher, who’s lived in Santa Fe for 40 years, creates art in her large garage studio, part of which, she says, is “an awesome actual library of actual books—a lot of magic, esoteric science, and art books.” Her current project involves crafting glass animal eyeballs, which will be installed and backlit in a 12-foot geodesic dome at Meow Wolf’s new multiuse art complex this fall. “It’s insanely great,” Wanenmacher says of the soon-to-open facility on Rufina Circle. “Santa Fe has a great artist community.” —Whitney Spivey erikawanenmacher.com

PROFILE

Kinetic Color vi bra n t wor ks by Fra nk B alaa m a nd Ang u s at Ve nt a na Fine A r t by Em ily Va n C le ve

COLOR IS ESSENTIAL TO the work of painters Angus Wilson (who goes simply by “Angus”) and Frank Balaam, the two painters featured in a new show at Ventana Fine Art called Kinetic Color—part of the citywide Summer of Color initiative, which presents color-themed shows at leading museums and galleries. “I remember in color,” says Balaam, whose most recent paintings focus on what he’s called “the energy and passion of trees.” For Angus, “color and composition provide the foundation for every painting I produce; without them, I am lost.” Kinetic Color features between 35 and 45 works by the two men. Balaam’s paintings are part of his Conservancy series, which focuses exclusively on forests and trees and whose proceeds go partly to the nature conservancies throughout the West that inspire the imagery. “In the forest, my hand and eye sketch the anatomy of trees, exploring the vast differences between each leaf and branch,” Balaam says. “In the studio, I take thick scoops of colored light, and, with my brush, I reach back into the forest to find the swirling waves of life and the explosive primal energy of existence.” Balaam, a U.K. native who now calls the small town of Globe, Arizona, home, traces his single-pointed interest in painting trees back to 2002, when, during a plein air painting

trip around Arizona’s Mogollon Rim, he saw the forests blackened from the Rodeo-Chediski Fire. Trees feature in Angus’s work as well—although the former television and film animator, who grew up in Scotland and lives in the San Francisco Bay Area, also focuses on sweeping landscapes, people, animals, and still life. He’s often told that his colorful expressionist style is reminiscent of Cézanne, Matisse, and Gauguin. “I want my work to appear effortless and passionate,” Angus says. “But under the hood I’m doing an awful lot of thinking and planning. The surface is all grace and elegance, but underneath the legs are thrashing around like nobody’s business.” Frank Balaam and Angus: Kinetic Color, June 12–24, reception June 12, 5–7 pm, Ventana Fine Art, 400 Canyon, ventanafineart.com

David Rothermel the art of creating strong but subtle paintings David Rothermel finds balance in his daily routine of 10 years. He begins with coffee at 5:30 am and paints from 6 to 10. “It’s only four hours,” says the Pennsylvania native, who had his first show in 1974, “but that’s all I need. When I’m in it, it’s 100 percent concentration.” Then, he says, “I get cleaned up and go to the gallery,” David Rothermel Contemporary, where he sells his work. “When you paint every day, you create a lot of inventory.” The artist’s carefully cultivated habits bring him not only stability but also inspiration; he wakes up every day enthusiastic about the bright colors and different surfaces that await him in his live-work space. “I see the excitement in the now,” he says, “and that propels me to keep going.”—Eve Tolpa drcontemporary.com

“The paintings I’m doing are strong but subtle,” Rothermel says. “That’s also sort of the way I am.”

Rothermel works flat and then hangs his paintings, a process that offers him different perspectives and new ideas.

Using big brushes, squeegees, multiple layers of acrylic paint, and a sander, Rothermel creates the textures that establish spatial relationships in his abstract pieces.

Rothermel’s studio has a 14-foot ceiling and an abundance of wall space, which, he says “gives me the opportunity to look at the work before I get it out. It pays to live with the work a little bit before you release it.”

empowering people through canine assistance by As h le y M . Big ge rs

SINCE CHILDHOOD, JILL FELICE has shown a near preternatural ability to get canines to work collaboratively with humans. She honed this skill at the Bergin University of Canine Studies in California, and in 1995 she founded Assistance Dogs of the West (ADW). The Santa Fe–based nonprofit trains dogs and places them with clients who need support. The dogs might assist individuals who have mobility impairments or seizure disorders, for example, or go to courthouses to provide emotional support to children who have been the victims of (or witnesses to) violent crimes. The program graduates 10 to 15 dogs per year, with another five or six graduating from the owner/self-training assistance dog course. 26

In August 2014, ADW began having military veterans train dogs in a program that Walter Reed National Military Medical Center has since endorsed. “[The veterans] get to train for other veterans, so that’s helping support their ethos of helping their fellow soldiers. By training service dogs for people in need, they’re another kind of hero in their community,” says Felice. “They’re also learning to be back in civilian life—being comfortable in their environments, learning how to be softer with their voices instead of being drill sergeants.” The soldiers are also benefiting from simply being around the dogs, which studies have shown releases oxytocin, a bonding and calming hormone. With 20 veterans participating so far, Felice expects to increase the number drastically before the end of the year and expand the larger program to Taos for the first time this fall.

musical theater maestros EILEEN AND ROY ROGOSIN, founders of the Santa Fe Musical Theatre Festival, were hit with the musical theater bug when they were kids. “Seeing Oklahoma! live, starring John Raitt, when I was about 8 years old, changed my life,” says Roy, who’s a composer, conductor, director, and producer. For Eileen—one of the original Mickey Mouse Club Mouseketeers—the defining moment was going to a performance of West Side Story on Broadway when she was a teenager. She went on to dance in Elvis Presley’s 1964 movie Roustabout and with the New York City Ballet under George Balanchine. “I sang, danced, and acted and knew that this was what I wanted to do for the rest of my life,” she says. The couple met in 1963 at a musical theater workshop at UCLA, where Eileen was a student and Roy was a teaching assistant, and they married the following year. After spending decades launching various musical festivals around the country, they moved to Santa Fe in 2006. “We were burned out and thought we’d retire when we moved [here],” Roy says. “That feeling didn’t last very long. By 2008 we’d done our first show in town.” The couple founded Musical Theatre Works, which offers performing arts classes, and the Santa Fe Musical Theatre Festival shortly thereafter—a venture they plan to stick with until “we fall down,” Roy says.—Emily Van Cleve 28

IF YOU’RE A BELIEVER in half-birthday celebrations, mark your calendar for July 6—that’s when the great state of New Mexico turns 103.5. And what better way to rejoice than by donning your favorite Zia apparel? Should you not have any sun symbol gear, never fear; Santa Fe’s local sporting goods stores have plenty of items to help you radiate state pride from head to toe. Local runner Mike Cleveland purchased a T-shirt with a Zia and the word run printed below it at the Running Hub. “I enjoy wearing my Zia shirt when I travel and run in different states because I can show my New Mexico pride,” he says. “I feel the Zia represents our state well; it has historical significance and is inspired by our beautiful landscape.” The Zia symbol, which has appeared on New Mexico’s flag since 1925, has roots in Zia Pueblo, whose people consider the sun sacred. Not only is the symbol reminiscent of that ball of fire high in the sky, but its four clusters of four rays is also significant, as that number is sacred (there are four points on a compass, four seasons of the year, four periods of the day, four sacred obligations in life, and so on). The symbol’s center circle binds those elements of four together and represents the circle of life. Wear your Zia proudly! —Whitney Spivey

Terrance Simien and the Zydeco Experience at Skylight

GABRIELLA MARKS

Terrance Simien and his band traveled straight to Santa Fe from their home base of New Orleans, and their Grammy Award–winning roots music sounded as fresh and lively as it did at their recent Bayou Boogaloo show. At Skylight, the group blended blues, rhythm, and funk in such a way as to keep their bead-clad audience members on their feet. “Simien [goes] from squeezebox to squeezebox, tweaking textures and tones, and singing with his flexible, soulful voice, in homage to Marley, Sam Cooke, Boozoo Chavis, [and] even Louis Armstrong,” The Philadelphia Inquirer once wrote of the eighth-generation Louisiana Creole. “You know it’s been a great night when, at the end, your smile muscles are just as tired as your dance muscles.”—Whitney Spivey
