Canyon Road’s artistic legacy is celebrated May 6–7 during the Canyon Road Spring Art Festival (CRSAF), an annual public event held along the famous half-mile-long street. More than 100 artists from around the country—with styles ranging from abstract to figurative, traditional to contemporary—make this Canyon Road Merchants Association (CRMA) event the unofficial kickoff to Santa Fe’s biggest art season. “The Canyon Road Spring Art Festival is a unique and exuberant event, as it showcases the extraordinary talents of artists while they create live art in one exhilarating day, in one of the most exceptional art districts the world has known,” says CRMA secretary Nancy Ouimet, owner and director of Canyon Road Contemporary Art. “The tradition of live art has always been what sets Canyon Road apart from other districts.” On May 6, in addition to the usual Friday night show openings (which are typically accompanied by refreshments and often feature live music), galleries will host artist demonstrations, lectures, and other goings-on. That evening and the following day, many galleries will also host silent auctions. During the Slow Draw on May 7, 60 Canyon Road artists will take to the street—rain or shine—to complete an original work, providing both locals and visitors a chance to experience Santa Fe’s plein air tradition firsthand. The live auction that occurs later in the

evening helps pair collectors with the unique artworks created during the Slow Draw event. A portion of the auction’s proceeds will benefit public school music programs, and Bruce Adams, the publisher of Santa Fean and Santa Fean NOW, will serve as auctioneer. Bonnie French, CRMA president and director of Waxlander Art Gallery & Sculpture Garden, says, “Here on Canyon Road, the Spring Art Festival honors local, national, and international artists, and nestled within the galleries are paintings and sculptures by these same groups of artists. . . . Combined with the rich history and congeniality of the road, any visitor can get the feeling of world travel while staying in the heart of Santa Fe.” For artist and bidder registration information, as well as a detailed schedule of events and general information about the Canyon Road Spring Art Festival, check visitcanyonroad.com.—Stephanie Love May 5, 2016 NOW 5


Violet Crown Cinema’s first anniversary and fundraiser To celebrate Violet Crown Cinema’s first anniversary on May 8, the theater plans to donate portions of its ticket sales to the Santa Fe Public Schools’ Adelante program, which offers food, clothing, and other resources to more than 1,700 local children and youth experiencing homelessness. “We saw Adelante as a good cause for the future of Santa Fe,” says Peter Grendle, the Crown’s general manager. “We felt compelled to celebrate the warm welcome we’ve received by giving back to the community that supports us.” Movie showings for the Violet Crown’s May 8 anniversary are available on their website. Over the last year, the Violet Crown’s blend of casual dining and luxurious cinema viewing has become a favorite among casual moviegoers and habitués alike. “We have a theater where people want to go without even knowing what movie they want to watch,” says Grendle. “A place with something for everyone was our mission.” A wide choice of films, from independent to blockbuster, play on the Crown’s 11 screens, where giant but cozy seats with trays and stainless steel cup holders await patrons who opt for in-theater dining. The café, standing on its own as a worthy restaurant, offers a variety of locally sourced menu items, while at the bar, beneath a hollowed out and refurbished train car, moviegoers can order from a selection of wines and 30 draft beers.—Joseph Case

Prize-winning poet and essayist Matt Donovan, cochair of the Creative Writing and Literature Department at Santa Fe University of Art and Design, will be signing his newest book, A Cloud of Unusual Size and Shape, at Collected Works on Thursday, May 5. Billed as “[Donovan’s] first foray into nonfiction with an essay collection about the flawless connections between antiquity and the present, personal experience and historical events, architecture and art and literature,” the work follows its cloud-themed muse from the eruption of Mount Vesuvius near Pompeii to the atomic bomb detonations over Hiroshima and Nagasaki. —Anne Maclachlan

Coinciding with the Canyon Road Spring Art Festival, Canyon Fine Art hosts a grand celebration to announce new artists and reveal the gallery’s recent makeover. Along with music and food, beloved local artists Lange Marshall, Joseph Breza, Margret Carde, and Daniel Bethune will be painting live during the Slow Draw. To complement its new look, Canyon Fine Art has added several artists to its roster, including local painter Regina Foster, whose distinguished graphic style brings a more contemporary flavor to the gallery. “The metaphor of a canyon-as-passageway feels really relevant to our new identity,” says Canyon Fine Art director and part-owner, Hether Bearinger. “It reflects both our place in the community of historic Canyon Road and the transformative effect nature and art offer each of us personally in terms of a sense of connection—to a more expansive self, to a sense of place, and to a social consciousness.”—SL Grand Opening (reopening), May 7, 2–6 pm, Canyon Fine Art, 205 Canyon, canyonfineart.com

Children aren’t born with instruction manuals, yet asking for parenting help is often considered taboo. That’s an attitude Many Mothers—a Santa Fe nonprofit that provides free emotional and physical support to any local family following the birth or adoption of a baby—hopes to change. Trained volunteers are matched with families in need for up to three months, six months in the case of twins or triplets. “Some parents may need someone to hold the baby while they shower, bathe, or sleep,” explains Executive Director Nancy Guthrie. “Other parents may need someone to listen, help them apply for a job, or fold laundry. There are a few things we don’t do, like care for pets and heavy housekeeping, but for the most part our volunteers are there to help reduce the stress and isolation associated with bringing home a newborn, and what that entails varies from parent to parent.” Although Many Mothers’ in-house support is open to any Santa Fe family regardless of income level, some of its programs are geared toward low-income households. The Hoop House Program, for example, supplies families in need with free greenhouse gardens that enable them to grow fresh vegetables. And new this month, baby boxes filled with basic supplies will be available to cash-strapped families. “Changes in the structure of our society mean that mothers often don’t have the support from extended family or religious communities the way they did in the past,” Guthrie says. “Postpartum depression and isolation are still big issues for mothers of newborns and can create stress that has a negative

Sixth Annual Bard’s Birthday Bash!

Master Florist Mark Sullivan, owner of Bloom Botanica, shares his creative skills with students of all ages.

Courses ranging from basics to advanced floral design are offered at Bloom Botanica.

Bloom Botanica

Santa Fe Scho o l o f Fl o r a l D e s ig n

In the 1980s, Mark Sullivan was majoring in business at Texas Tech University in Lubbock when he discovered that flowers were his true passion in life. He switched his major to ornamental horticulture and embarked on a career in floral design, a move that continues to provide him with deep joy. After almost three decades of creating floral arrangements for weddings and special events in Texas, Sullivan moved to Santa Fe and homed in on a niche of the flower business—offering classes in the art of creating flower and plant arrangements. Bloom Botanica Santa Fe School of Floral Design was born last fall after Sullivan found the perfect spot on Second Street; here they host courses ranging from the creation of basic bouquets to instruction on growing orchids. Offered on a regular basis, Sullivan’s basic floral design class caters to anyone interested in floristry as a career. “It’s a really in-depth study, a meat-and-potatoes class, that focuses on all floral techniques as well as floral shop operations,” he explains. Other classes change monthly. Recent offerings included learning how to make floral topiaries and how to construct and grow hydroponic hanging water gardens. Sullivan hopes to present “Boys Into Bonsai” this summer as a way of encouraging guys to try floral arrangement. Flowers, containers, and tools are provided at each class. Students leave with hands-on experience and an exquisite floral arrangement they made themselves. Gift certificates for Mother’s Day and other special occasions are available, and Sullivan notes, “I can also custom design a class for a group upon request.”—Emily Van Cleve Bloom Botanica Santa Fe School of Floral Design, 1731 Second Street Studio A, bloombotanicasf.com 16

DOUGLAS MERRIAM

Love margaritas? Santa Fe is about to get a little tastier for you this summer. The clever folks at the Santa Fe Tourism Board (the people who brought us the delicious Green Chile Cheeseburger Smackdown Tour) are adding some tequila to this year’s fun with the Margarita Trail, which launches this week on Cinco de Mayo and continues indefinitely. Purchase a $3 “passport” that lays out the path to roughly 30 local establishments where you can sample the margaritathemed creations of some of our town’s most talented mixologists. The passport offers a discount at the bar, and at each stop you get your passport stamped (a maximum of two per day). Collect five and turn in your passport at any of the city’s three visitor centers for a special Santa Fe Margarita Trail T-shirt. I’ll be starting off at the Santa Fe Sage Inn’s Derailed Restaurant & Lounge with the Tequila Mockingbird, a bracing blend of Espolón Blanco tequila, muddled jalapeño, fresh lime juice, St. Germain elderflower liqueur, and pineapple juice. Designed to cool you off and fire up the fun!—John Vollertsen

AS WINTER’S DARKNESS gradually gives way to the new growth of spring, thoughts of renewal—physical, mental, emotional, and artistic—often take root. Northern New Mexico is not only a longtime sanctuary for photographers, painters, poets, and novelists, but also home to an abundance of workshops and retreats designed to cultivate self-expression. If you’re feeling inclined to rejuvenate your own creativity, why not think about the options below? Online is an easy place to start. Two resources that cast a wide net into the workshop waters are Road Scholar and Santa Fe Creative Tourism. The former is a project of Elderhostel, which has been promoting lifelong learning for four decades. Search their website by state to explore educational travel itineraries; listings in New Mexico include studio tours and hands-on workshops. The latter hosts a comprehensive online catalog where visitors can discover a variety of workshops facilitated by local artists who are directly reachable from links on the site. Santa Fe Photographic Workshops (SFPW) is one of many organizations featured at Santa Fe Creative Tourism. For 26

years, it’s been celebrated for its highly focused New Mexico– based programs and well-established travel workshops to Cuba and San Miguel de Allende, Mexico; new itineraries for Japan and Cartagena, Colombia, are on the schedule for 2016. SFPW’s instructors, says director Reid Callanan, “are the most influential photographers in the world of fine art, editorial, advertising, and commercial photography. About 10 to 20 percent of our programing is new each year. We listen to suggestions from our alumni, ideas from our guest instructors, and we also brainstorm together to develop new workshop ideas.” In 2017, he notes, “[w]e are starting a series of writing workshops in Cuba and Santa Fe that will be known as Santa Fe Workshops Writers Lab.” The Santa Fe-based National Parks Arts Foundation (NPAF), is, says founder Tanya Ortega, “the only nonprofit that combines arts and the National Parks.” Part of the inspiration for the organization comes from Ortega’s own experience; as a teen, she worked at Yellowstone. “The inspiration that people have from the arts,” she recalls, “I could see that in person.” NPAF specializes in retreats and workshops based in national park, national monuments, World Heritage sites, and state parks. This last element comes into play a lot locally, where, says Ortega, “we’re doing tours out of Santa Fe—photography workshops, plein air

workshops. We are able to connect artists to parks in ways that have not happened since the days of Ansel Adams.” In the fall of 2016, NPAF is offering a retreat at Fort Union National Monument in Northern New Mexico (application deadline is August 1). Don’t be discouraged if the programs that interest you are already full; NPAF creates new ones regularly, often with little lead time, so it’s worth checking back frequently. USA Today dubbed the University of New Mexico Summer Writers’ Conference in Santa Fe (formerly Taos Summer Writers’ Conference) one of the top 10 writers’ conferences in the country. In addition to offering open-registration workshops and selective application-only master classes, the event gives writers a chance to meet with agents, editors, and other publishing professionals (including The Book Doctors, who are hosting Pitchapalooza, “the American Idol for books”).

Lawrence, whose Taos ranch was deeded to UNM in 1955. “He wanted a community of artists and writers to inspire and support one another,” says the conference’s founding director, Sharon Warner. “The classes we offer online are designed to inspire and support the writers who enroll and to provide them with a sense of community.” Ghost Ranch Education and Retreat Center’s calendar is packed year-round, with arts-related workshops in writing, photography, watercolors, pastels, oil painting, and mixed media. Spectacular in every season, Ghost Ranch’s fullservice facilities are adjacent to multihued cliffs and canyons, as well as streamfed grasslands, all beckoning to be explored on foot. Also situated at Ghost Ranch are weeklong biennial interdisciplinary writing retreats for women, hosted by A Room of Her Own (ARHO). Established in 2000, the literary foundation is dedicated to expanding upon the legacy of Virginia Woolf, who famously asserted that “women need money and a room of their own if they are to write.” Acceptance into ARHO’s program is competitive; the next retreat is planned for 2017.

Annie O’Brien Gonzales

bold, expressive painting

Gonzales attended art school at Oregon State University in the 1980s and returned to full-time painting in 2004 after moving to Santa Fe.

“I love Santa Fe, always have,” Gonzales says. “It has all of the benefits of a small town and a unique cultural heritage. Add to that the amenities of a larger city—restaurants, museums, music—and a beautiful climate. I don’t think I could live anywhere else.”

STEPHEN LANG

Gonzales, who teaches painting workshops around the country, will be signing her new book—Bold Expressive Painting: Painting Techniques for Still Lifes, Florals, and Landscapes in Mixed Media—at her show’s opening on May 6.

Colorful flora feature prominently in the paintings of Annie O’Brien Gonzales. “Gardens are an endless source of inspiration for me, but there’s also something about still life,” she says. “It’s slightly voyeuristic—a glimpse into a private life—which intrigues me.” And so, in the tradition of Cézanne, Van Gogh, and Matisse, Gonzales creates expressive works that focus on color, form, and pattern in her studio on Upper Canyon Road. “I work in oil, acrylic, and mixed media using collage elements, beeswax, dry pigments, graphite, and pastels,” she explains. “In addition to the usual brushes, I employ scrapers, brayers, and many other mark-making tools. The process involves multiple layers and responding to what appears on each surface as the painting evolves. My aim is to evoke the sense of joy I experience as I create paintings in the viewer as well.” Her solo exhibition Floriography goes on display at The Globe Gallery on May 6.—Whitney Spivey Floriography, May 6–27, reception May 6, 5–7 pm, The Globe Gallery, 727 Canyon, globefineart.com
