SANTA FEAN AND SANTA FEAN NOW magazines are honored to be part of this year’s Summer of Color initiative. In essence, the Summer of Color is a citywide celebration of color as it translates to art, food, drinks, and other creations. Throughout the summer, galleries, hotels, restaurants, and more will offer numerous products and services centering on this theme. In this issue of NOW, you’ll find useful information and a map to guide you to Summer of Color offerings, which are available around town. Few cities offer the diversity that Santa Fe does. While you’ll find a fair share of neutral brown colors among our landscape and architecture, lush, rich greens are never far away. Santa Fe’s sunsets and sunrises are lessons in color, as we witness shades and hues we didn’t even know existed in nature. And that’s on top of the colors we find in our art galleries and museums. Santa Fe is the perfect city to host the Summer of Color.

Johnson Street Experience, June 6, free, 12–5 pm


Be afraid. In the tense sci-fi masterpiece Ex Machina, Ava has the perfectly soft face of a girl, but her body is mostly twinkling robotic components. Her movements are unnaturally lithe, yet we can see in her eyes, when she’s speaking with a young programmer named Caleb, that she feels fear and perhaps even love. Except . . . something is off about Nathan, Ava’s inventor. He drinks alone and keeps saying “dude.” He’s the CEO of a search engine similar to Google, and he lives a secluded existence in a mountainside compound. He helicopters in Caleb, his unwitting employee, to give Ava the Turing test, which will determine whether she has true artificial intelligence. Can Ava’s computer mind be indistinguishable from a human’s? Nathan also wants to hang out and get drunk, and he and Caleb have pertinent conversations about programming, the meaning of life (Why give Ava gender?), and mankind’s potential extinction. You wanna hear something scary? In May, Stephen Hawking told a conference in London that “computers will overtake humans with A. I. at some point within the next 100 years,” and he warned that “the development of full artificial intelligence could spell the end of the human race.” Last year Hawking cowrote a column that said A. I. could eventually outsmart our financial markets, out-invent our researchers, manipulate our leaders, and make “weapons we cannot even understand.” That’s the real-world context for Ex Machina, but big ideas won’t dampen the thrill of watching three characters play a strange social game in Nathan’s gorgeous futuristic home. For all its robot hardware, the movie is more Alfred Hitchcock than James Cameron. The characters, especially Nathan, are enigmatic. Someone is lying, and unraveling that mystery exercises the mind like only the best thrillers can. After Ex Machina is over, its secrets exposed, we can look past the fate of its characters and consider its theme. How could the CEO of a search engine build a computer with enough data to achieve consciousness? Ava’s brain is beautiful, and it’s built with the information we willfully hand over via cell phones, tablets, and laptops. We’ve surrendered. We’re inside the machine. Now we wait.—Phil Parker DNA FILMS, FILM4

Johnson Street Experience The annual Johnson Street Experience, held this year on June 6, offers people a chance to learn about the businesses that call this bustling street very close to the Plaza home. At Heidi Loewen Porcelain Gallery and School, Loewen will throw large porcelain vessels on a wheel and trim several pieces. “Folks get a kick out of watching the tiny bits of porcelain clay fly across the room during the process,” she says. One block away, at Sweet Lily Bakery, a marimba band will entertain guests while owner Melinda Gipson serves samples of pie and premieres her new line of homemade ice cream. Taiko drummers offer a special performance at noon at the Japanese restaurant Shohko Café, and TerraCotta Wine Bistro is hosting a wine tasting that will include hors d’oeuvres. The Eldorado Hotel and Beals and Co. will collaborate to present a Meet the Artists event with painter Lelija Roy and photographer Zoë Marieh Urness. Located between Guadalupe Street and Grant Avenue, Johnson Street used to be a residential road. Shohko Café opened its doors there in 1980, and the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum was established in 1997. In recent years local businesses offering everything from gourmet food to rare books have made Johnson, Grant, or Guadalupe their home, including the Santa Fe School of Cooking, the David Copher Gallery, Gunstock Hill Books, Downtown Doggie Daycare and Companions Grooming, the Andrew Smith Gallery, and Georgia restaurant, most of which are participating in this year’s event.—Emily Van Cleve

“We’ve woven many styles of theater into Cassandra,” says playwright Matthew McVey-Lee.

THREE, A PERFORMANCE GROUP, is a new Albuquerque-based theater troupe that launched its inaugural show, Cassandra, in the Duke City at the end of May. This weekend, Cassandra and a second play, An Iliad, premiere locally at Teatro Paraguas. Cowritten by the group’s three members—Jenny Hoffman, Yolanda Knight, and Matthew McVey-Lee—Cassandra tells the story of the controversial daughter of King Priam and Queen Hecuba of Troy, as seen through the eyes of the various poets and playwrights who’ve written about her during the past 3,000 years. In Greek mythology, Cassandra was a prophet who also was considered, by some accounts, to be insane. “She’s been viewed different ways [throughout] history,” says McVeyLee, who directs the two-woman show starring Hoffman as Cassandra and Knight as the Chorus. “We include various interpretations of Cassandra’s story in the script and then pull them together with scenes that the three of us have written. We’ve woven many styles of theater into the play.” Because Cassandra predicted many of the events that took place in the Trojan War, the playwrights decided to also present Lisa Peterson and Denis O’Hare’s An Iliad, which gives the audience background on the famous conflict and provides context for their original work. Directed by Michelle Lawson and starring Evening Star Baron, An Iliad will be performed at Teatro Paraguas the day before Cassandra premieres. The play is one big monologue about the Trojan War from the perspective of an ancient poet who has immersed herself in the violence, heartbreak, pain, and fears of the people involved. “We discovered [An Iliad] when we were looking for voices on the Trojan War,” says McVey-Lee, who notes that the play was recommended to him and his colleagues. “Thematically, these two plays go hand in hand.”

Santa Fe Musical Theatre Festival t he second a nnual e ve nt pr e s e nts t hr e e or ig ina l wor k s at The Le ns ic

by Ash le y M . Big ge rs


The three musicals featured in this year’s festival underwent vigorous rehearsing and workshopping before being performed, and the cast and crew will solicit audience feedback immediately after each performance.

IN THE CULTURAL JUGGERNAUT of Santa Fe, it’s rare to find a chink. Yet when Roy and Eileen Rogosin arrived in the City Different six years ago, they saw a dearth of musical theater offerings and decided to create the Santa Fe Musical Theatre Festival. Now marking its second year, the festival will present three original works June 5–6 at The Lensic Performing Arts Center. A panel comprising Roy, two Broadway directors, a New York City theater producer, and a university dramaturge read this year’s nearly 40 submissions, which came from across the country. The group selected three musicals for the festival based on the originality of the stories, the quality of the writing and music, and the shows’ commercial potential. Better Than Dreaming, by Alan Gordon and Joy Son, is a modern take on A Midsummer Night’s Dream. The Carol of Christmas, by Juliana Jones (with music by Roy), follows beloved characters such as Christopher Robin and Peter Pan in a holiday comedy. Pooch, in which a New York opera singer receives messages from Italian composer Puccini through his dog, rounds out the festival. As experienced actors, writers, producers, and directors themselves—Eileen was an original Walt Disney Mouseketeer, a dancer with the New York City Ballet, and a Hollywood casting director, and Roy wrote for TV, film, and the stage; founded the Seacoast Repertory Theatre; and conducted for the likes of Johnny Mathis—the Rogosins knew well the challenge of “getting a new musical written, seen, and improved,” Roy says. By the time the curtain rises on the festival’s shows, they’ll

have been workshopped for 10 days among the writers, top New York producers, musical directors, and the 40 cast members—all but three of whom are from New Mexico. “[The show’s] locked in a Cuisinart food processor,” Roy says of the rehearsal process. “Once I hit the button, it stirs, and, hopefully, the show that emerges is richer, better, and more polished,” The audience completes the process with talk-back sessions after each performance, during which they offer insights and ask questions of the script writers and actors. Santa Fe Musical Theatre Festival, June 5–6, Pooch, June 5, 7:30 pm, Better Than Dreaming, June 6, 2 pm, The Carol of Christmas, June 6, 5 pm, Best of the Santa Fe Musical Theatre Festival, June 6, 8 pm, $15 per performance, $25 festival pass, The Lensic Performing Arts Center, 211 W San Francisco,, June 4, 2015 NOW 15

Gina Freschet, The Phantom, oil and acrylic on canvas, 28 x 31"

For 30 years, Gina Freschet lived in Lower Manhattan, where some of the city’s best art was found on the streets. Her show at The William and Joseph Gallery is a tribute to the wall dogs (the people who hung from scaffolding to paint their shop signs and advertisements on the sides of buildings) and their ghosts (traces of their work still visible today). “This show is a must-see,” says gallery owner Mary Bonney. “It’s narrative, compelling, utterly modern, and hilarious. Gina shares her story, and [through] her use of imagery and words, tells our story as well.”

One image, for example, is a childlike drawing of a horse with nostalgic imagery in the background. Freschet points out different parts of the animal using phonetic spellings, such as satl (saddle) and rans (reins). “Her humor and intellect jump off the canvas,” Bonney says, “but there’s also a bittersweet energy to some paintings.” —Whitney Spivey Gina Freschet: Ghost Walls and Wall Dogs, June 5–30, reception June 5, 5–7 pm, free, The William and Joseph Gallery, 727 Canyon,

Stephen Lang at True West

the prolific photographer displays a series of abstract images inspired by nature

“PEOPLE RECOGNIZE MY JEANS BEFORE they recognize me,” says photographer-about-town Stephen Lang, who, when documenting events for Santa Fean NOW, stands out from the crowd in his patchwork denim pants and jacket, which he wears every day but insists isn’t a uniform. “I started putting patches on my jeans after Neil Young’s Gold Rush album came out back in the late ’60s,” he notes. “There’s a hole behind every one. Now, unfortunately, I’m having to put patches on patches.” Lang finds that his look is perfect for his adopted hometown. “There’s no dress code in Santa Fe,” says the native New Yorker, “although I do

have a dress pair [of jeans that] I wear only at night” to art openings and other events. You can therefore expect that Lang will be sporting his version of eveningwear on June 5, at a reception that kicks off his month-long solo exhibition at True West. Lang’s show features 19 photographs, many of which are abstract images of ravens or crows. “I wasn’t sure how many people would want to have a literal image of a raven or a crow on their wall,” he says. “This was more fun for me. I happen to really like things that are abstract and shot with a lot of negative space.” Lang’s images will be shown under glass, because framing creates a boundary for the bird, he says. The images, which also include shots of wild horses, are black and white with little, if any, cropping. “They’re as-is out of the camera,” Lang notes. “There’s no Photoshop—they’re not manipulated.” In other words, no patchwork necessary.

Both Sides Now

by Emi ly Va n Cle ve

pa i n t e r C a rol Ha rts o ck r e ve als two a spec t s of he r a r ti s tr y JONI MITCHELL’S POPULAR 1967 song “Both Sides Now” was the inspiration for the title of Carol Hartsock’s new show at Greenberg Fine Art. Best known for her representational portraits, Hartsock has delved into the world of abstraction during the past year. “Portraiture and abstraction represent both sides of me,” she says, noting that she switches between the two genres from one day to the next. More than a dozen paintings from each oeuvre are featured in Both Sides Now, which opens June 5 and runs through June 18. The portraits are depictions of people Hartsock encountered while traveling abroad and living in Asia, such as a little girl in Vietnam and a monk in India. She focuses on posture and faces—especially eyes—and one of her goals is to broaden understanding between people. “The documentation of this—our human family, the sameness of its differences, the equality—is the overriding objective of my art,” Hartsock says.

Although portraiture is Hartsock’s first love, abstraction is where she finds fun and release. “It’s luscious,” she says, noting that she tried her hand at abstraction years ago and explored it again last year when she needed something to help her loosen up. “Instead of knowing what the end result will look like, it’s about process for me,” she adds. “I allow the paint to tell me what to do. I’m also allowing myself to make mistakes and not treat the paintings as so precious.” When Hartsock paints in her studio north of Seattle, she feels drawn to working with greens and blues. In her Santa Fe studio, she reaches for warmer colors. “The abstractions are evolving,” she says. “Some are actually landscapes and others are derived from flowers. It’s exciting to move in this new direction.” Carol Hartsock: Both Sides Now, June 5–18, reception June 5, 5–7 pm, free, Greenberg Fine Art, 205 Canyon,

“I was looking for artists who exhibit originality and whose work I admire,” says curator Preston Singletary.

renowned artists from around the world display their work in Blue Rain Gallery’s second annual invitational glass show WHAT COULD BE MORE simple: five large, wall-mounted matchsticks in progressive degrees of future or past combustion—from completely unlit to slightly charred to burned almost all the way down. Created by Erich Woll, each three-foottall matchstick is made of glass. But as the title, When Things Go South, suggests, there’s more to the piece than meets the eye. “Successful work to me is visually simple, informed, and intellectually complex,” Woll says, which for the Seattle-based artist means it must open the door to multiple interpretations and associations—every viewer bringing a potentially different perspective to the work and each one as valid as the next. Woll’s striking (no pun intended) creations join those of nine other glass artists at Blue Rain Gallery’s second annual Invitational Glass Show. Curated by acclaimed Northwest Coast glass artist Preston Singletary, the show features emerging and established artists who employ traditional and newer glassblowing and cold glass methods to produce distinctive, innovative works of art. “I was looking for a broad range of diversity in techniques and styles but also colleagues and artists who exhibit originality and whose work I admire,” Singletary says. 24

These criteria netted an international roster of talented artists, many of whom have been part of glassblowing teams for master glass artists such as Dale Chihuly and Lino Tagliapietra. Among them is Benjamin Cobb, who’s worked for the Museum of Glass in Tacoma, Washington, since 2002. Cobb’s elegant, amorphic creations often incorporate negative space through openings in the glass. The Australian team of Ben Edols and Kathy Elliott, collaborating since 1993, produces blown-glass vessel forms with cold-worked surfaces embellished in delicately carved patterns. Daniel Joseph Friday is a Northwest Coast artist of the Lummi tribe whose sculptural creations suggest totemic forms. The natural world provides inspiration for such artists as Michael Cozza (sunflowers) and Sasha Tepper-Stewart (butterflies), while a precise, often minimalist sensibility is reflected in pieces by Sean Albert, Joe BenVenuto, and Danish artist Tobias Møhl. “What I’ve always loved about glass is its seemingly limitless possibilities,” says Blue Rain owner Leroy Garcia. “This diverse cross section of artists is an excellent example of the many ways the medium can be adapted to a unique aesthetic concept.” Invitational Glass Show, June 5–27, reception June 5, 5–7 pm, free, Blue Rain Gallery, 130 Lincoln,

Taos Spirit a ne w show at Wi nte r owd Fine A r t w el com e s t hree n e w a r ti sts a nd celeb rate s f re sh p e rs p ecti ve s on t h e Tao s la nds cape WINTEROWD FINE ART WELCOMES three new artists— Taosbased painters Annell Livingston, Susan Pasquarelli, and Suzanne Wiggin—to its roster with the show Taos Spirit, which opens June 5. In the works on display, each artist demonstrates her unique perspective on Taos’s high desert and its defining mountainscape. “There’s a really interesting creative spirit in Taos exercised by many artists,” says owner Karla Winterowd. The women featured in this show “have such a vibrant spirit,” she adds. “They’re three diverse artists who all had a common sense of light play and an energy pulse in their paintings.” This ethereal quality—in addition to the artists’ expert technique and knowledge of materials—is what makes their work immediately stand out.

The Taos-based painters in this show are “three diverse artists who all had a common sense of light play and an energy pulse in their paintings,” says gallery owner Karla Winterowd. Pasquarelli often reflects on the landscape through geometric forms and occasionally literal wave vibrations. She grew up in the Mohave Desert and traveled frequently in the Southwest but spent decades in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, before she and her husband retired to Taos. “I feel like I’ve always painted this landscape, even when I lived in the city,” she says of the mountains and rivers that have inspired her latest series. And as she’s lived in she shadow of Taos Mountain, she’s developed a deeper familiarity with the land. “I’m learning to translate whatever feeling I have for the landscape into my own work,” she notes. “I’m getting closer to that language, not purely abstract or purely literal.” Wiggin’s dramatic landscapes evoke master works, but her luminous paintings—often of storms and dramatic skies—have a distinctly modern edge. Livingston’s gouache paintings are purely geometric, though they remain organic, as they pay homage to the four directions and offer subtle variations in color. Winterowd, who’s been following these artists and their work for a while, thinks the timing of this new show is perfect. “[Their art has] grown and changed,” she says. “It’s so sophisticated right now.”

Open Loose, Le Chat Lunatique, and Folk Ute


NOW photographers captured the performances of three great bands that appeared in Santa Fe in April. New York City–based jazz trio Open Loose (left) played to an intimate crowd at GiG Performance Space on April 4. That same evening, the popular Albuquerque band Le Chat Lunatique (below, left) entertained the packed house at Duel Brewing with highly danceable, self-described “filthy, mangy jazz.” And on April 7, Folk Uke (below) opened for X at Skylight. This acoustic duo comprises Cathy Guthrie and Amy Nelson, the daughters of folk legend Arlo Guthrie and country star Willie Nelson, respectively. “[Folk Uke] was insanely cute, singing slightly twee folk songs that got a little raunchy [and had] charming harmonies,” says one local fan.—Cristina Olds
