THE RECENT RAINS ARE perfect for greening up Santa Fe and ensuring a lovely spring, and there’s no better way to celebrate spring than to soak up the Passport to the Arts event that’s being held along Canyon Road this Saturday, May 9. You’ll find a lot of information about the event in this issue of NOW, and you’ll find even more details at Timed to coincide with Mother’s Day weekend, Passport to the Arts is a chance to meet gallery artists, watch them work, bid on their newly created pieces and on other items at the big auction in front of Wiford Gallery, and enjoy a beautiful spring day on one of Santa Fe’s most cherished roads. I especially encourage you to attend the auction on May 9. There will be an extensive display of silent auction items, and I’ll be the auctioneer for the live auction, which is a fun and very lively event. Passport to the Arts will also include musical performances by Santa Fe schoolchildren, as a large portion of the event’s proceeds help fund the Santa Fe Public Schools Music Program. To me, Passport to the Arts is a celebration of the creativity of the human spirit evidenced in all the galleries on Canyon Road. It’s also a celebration of our young local musical talents. The fact that the event is held on a beautiful spring day and is a chance to do something fun with Mom is an added bonus. Staff members from Santa Fean and Santa Fean NOW magazines will be in front of Greenberg Fine Art during the event. We look forward to seeing you and to enjoying this grand and special day.

On April 19, Josh Gerwin (second from left), of Dr. Field Goods Kitchen, won the third annual Comfort Food Classic, which benefitted Gerard’s House. Other participating chefs included (from left) Ahmed Obo of Jambo Café, Cristian Pontiggia of Osteria D’Assisi, Tony Quintana of Kingston Residence, and Andy Barnes of Dinner for Two.

Commemorating 20 years as a platform for creative expression deserves a big celebration, which is exactly Pussy Riot’s Masha Alekhina (left) what SITE Santa Fe has and Nadya Tolokonnikova will planned May 7–9. The appear at the Greer Garson Theatre weekend begins with an international salute to artistic freedom with Nadezhda (Nadya) Tolokonnikova and Maria (Masha) Alekhina, members of feminist punk rock protest group Pussy Riot, who will appear in conversation with Ellen Berkovitch and translator Peter Verzilov at the Greer Garson Theatre. The weekend continues on May 9 with a free, eight-hour birthday extravaganza that’s open to the public and will overflow with food, music, and interactive art projects, including a sewing circle from noon to 4 pm with Marie Watt; the resulting creation will be presented in July at the SITE exhibition Unsuspected Possibilities. Also during the party, artist Rose B. Simpson will lead several female mechanics in the prepping of a ’68 Impala that will then be live-painted by Los Angeles street artist Breeze, and kids can join a special birdhouse-making workshop. Refreshments will include cupcakes from Adobo, chocolates from Kakawa, coffee from Ohori’s, and juice from Verde. On May 9 and 10, Double Vision, an exhibition and sale featuring works by 10 artists, will be held as a benefit for SITE.—Ashley M. Biggers


When you meet Agapita Judy Lopez and her brother Belarmino Lopez, you come within one degree of separation from iconic American artist Georgia O’Keeffe (1887–1986). For more than 12 years, Agapita served as O’Keeffe’s personal secretary, and Belarmino did maintenance work at the artist’s Abiquiú and Ghost Ranch homes. Belarmino also assisted O’Keeffe with some of her paintings and ceramics after she began losing her eyesight in 1973. Now, decades later, Agapita is the director of historic properties owned by the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum, and Belarmino continues to maintain them. To commemorate the Lopezes’ 40 years of devotion to the preservation of O’Keeffe’s home and studio in Abiquiú, the Cultural Properties Review Committee (part of the Heritage Preservation Division of the State of New Mexico’s Department of Cultural Affairs) is presenting the siblings with a lifetime achievement award on May 8. “It is an honor to receive this award,” Agapita said in a statement. “This historic property allows the world to witness Miss O’Keeffe’s creative lifestyle, garnering a much deeper appreciation of her aesthetic and artistic output.” In 2012, Agapita co-authored Georgia O’Keeffe and Her Houses: Ghost Ranch and Abiquiú. She and other guides offer tours of the 5,000-square-foot Spanish Colonial-era Abiquiú compound throughout the summer by reservation.—Cristina Olds

Singer Corey Parsons doesn’t remember how he and banjo player Stephen Pierce decided to name their newly formed ensemble “Banditos.” The conversation took place back in 2010, during a drunken night in Mexico. They asked friends Randy Wade (drums), Jeffrey Salter (guitar), and Mary Beth Richardson (vocals) to join them for their first official gig; bassist Danny Vines came on board shortly after. It’s been an exciting ride for the sextet ever since, with more than 600 shows performed in the past three years. Originally from Birmingham, Alabama, and now living in Nashville, Tennessee, the Banditos are known for their 1960s-style bluesy rock ‘n’ roll tunes infused with some bluegrass, punk, and country sounds. “Steve, Mary, and I write the lyrics, but everyone adds their feedback and is allowed to make changes,” says Parsons, who notes that the six musicians have known each other since high school. “We have a really democratic process.” In the true spirit of democracy, every vocalist and instrumentalist is given the spotlight on the band’s self-titled debut album, which releases May 12—the same day the group performs at Santa Fe Sol. —Emily Van Cleve

Music Monday

by Emi ly Va n Cle ve

an evening of narrative tunes at the Jean Cocteau Cinema LAST SUMMER, guitarist Max Hatt and singer Edda Glass were playing a gig on Museum Hill when they met Matthew Andrae, a musician they admired who’d come to see them perform. “We hit it off,” Glass says. Now, almost a year later, all three musicians will play at the Jean Cocteau Cinema’s Music Monday concert on May 11. “When I approached the Jean Cocteau about having Max and me perform there,” Glass notes, “I thought it would be great to also invite Matthew, since we have some of the same musical interests.” Glass and Hatt, who are known for their blend of original jazz Americana and Brazilian bossa nova, recently returned to Santa Fe after recording an album in North Carolina that’s being produced by Wilco’s Pat Sansone. The duo plan to perform some of that new material on the 11th. “Max and I play original tunes that are based in the history of the West and evoke a sense of place, of wide open spaces that sometimes create distances between people,” Glass says. “Our songs are never confessional; they’re always fictional.” Also on the duo’s playlist will be renditions of some 1960s songs that are embedded in American culture, such as “Wichita Lineman,” which was written by Jimmy Webb and first recorded by Glen Campbell. Guitarist Andrae, a native Santa Fean who studied at the Berklee College of Music, University of Arizona, and New England Conservatory, released his debut CD in 2010 and has gone on to perform around the world. He is acclaimed for his Brazilian/ flamenco/classical sound, which he’ll be bringing to his performance at the Cocteau.

Passport to the Arts celebrating the far-reaching creative legacy of Canyon Road




ON FRIDAY, MAY 8, AND SATURDAY, MAY 9, more than 100 artists and thousands of spectators will participate in the annual Passport to the Arts event, which takes place along Canyon Road. Festivities begin Friday night with receptions, lectures, and demonstrations in galleries Local musicians provide a and chances to bid on items that are part of Passport’s silent auction. The sound track to the day. following day, the silent auction–bidding will continue, and an Artist Quick Draw will be held from 11 am to 1 pm (see the schedule on page 11). During the rain-or-shine event, each Plein air painting at last year’s of the dozens of participating artists—ranging from Passport to the Arts painters to bronze sculptors to jewelers—will create an original work while onlookers cheer them on. The newly born creations will then be sold that evening at 5 pm (cocktails begin at 4 pm) during a live auction at Wiford Gallery and Sculpture Garden, for which Santa Fean and Santa Fean NOW publisher Bruce Adams will serve as auctioneer. The pre-auction reception will include live entertainment by student musicians who are members of Santa Fe public schools’ bands, orchestras, and choirs, as a portion of Passport to the Arts’ proceeds support the Santa Fe Public Schools Music Program. A new addition to this year’s fun is the Passport to the Arts Instagram Scavenger Hunt. “I think [the scavenger hunt] will challenge art collectors, visitors, and locals to look at Canyon Road in a new way,” says Jordan Eddy, communications director for Matthews Gallery and a member of the executive board of the Canyon Road Merchants Association, which organizes Passport to the Arts. “It asks them to create their own art out of Canyon Road.” The hunt, held on May 8, begins at 4:30 pm in the sculpture garden at Canyon Road Contemporary Art (403 Canyon), where participants will collect “passports” that include instructions and a list of images they have to capture along Canyon Road, such as historic buildings and sculptures. They’ll then post their images to the photo-sharing mobile app Instagram, tagging them with #CanyonRoadPassport and #SimplySantaFe and including GeoTags that identify where the items in the photos are located. Participants have until 7 pm to complete the challenge. Those who do finish the hunt will be entered into a raffle drawing for prizes such as gift cards from The Teahouse and La Posada de Santa Fe and books and posters from Waxlander Gallery. An artist paints during the 2014 Passport to the Arts.

Take part in one of the festival’s organized bike rides.

Outside Bike and Brew Festival

The Farmers Market Pavilion is a hub for a number of the festival’s events.

the popular event returns for a second year FAT TIRES AND IPAS will take center stage at the second annual Outside Bike and Brew Festival, a five-day celebration of Santa Fe’s thriving and often converging mountain biking, road cycling, and craft brewery scenes. The response to last year’s event was nothing short of overwhelming (in a good way), prompting organizers to set the bar that much higher for this year’s edition, which begins on May 13. “We underestimated the turnout in our first year, so we have added twice the number of rides, beer gardens, and concerts to accommodate a larger audience,” Christopher Goblet, event director and Cycle Santa Fe executive director, said in a statement. “Naturally, we ordered twice the amount of beer as well to be sure we keep up with demand.” Befitting its name, the Outside magazine–sponsored festival will feature a full slate of events centered on bikes or beer and occasionally both. A variety of organized rides will take place daily, from guided outings along the single and double tracks of the Dale

Ball and La Tierra trails to group tours with stops at several local breweries. From Wednesday through Saturday, riders can reward themselves with festival-themed dinners and beer offerings at select restaurants. The action kicks into overdrive on Friday night, with Philadelphia’s Clap Your Hands Say Yeah performing at Railyard Park and the Handmade Bike and Handcrafted Beer Showcase at the Santa Fe Farmers Market Pavilion presenting some of the region’s best bike builders and craft beers on tap. To help you get the most out of the festival–and the months ahead–clinics will discuss the latest gear and useful riding techniques. Bike and Brew concludes on May 17, which also marks the 30th anniversary of the Santa Fe Century bike ride. Outside Bike and Brew Festival, May 13–17, events, locations, and prices vary,

More than 100 people attended the opening reception for Eloisa restaurant on March 28. Many guests crowded around the bar in the bright, modern dining area while others enjoyed the warm evening on the patio, indulging in quail egg hors d’oeuvres (pictured) and a variety of cocktails. Located in the 182-room Drury Plaza Hotel, the sophisticated but informal Eloisa is open for lunch and dinner seven days a week. The kitchen serves contemporary Southwestern cuisine that “marries chef John Rivera Sedlar’s Northern New Mexican roots with his artistic flair, innovation, and training in traditional French culinary techniques,” says publicist Audrey Rubinstein. “Business has been going very well since [the] opening, [so] it’s best to make a reservation.”—Whitney Spivey Eloisa, 228 E Palace, May 7, 2015 NOW 17

Dos Mundos, the name of a new exhibit at Acosta Strong Fine Art, means two worlds in Spanish, and the title speaks directly to the very nature of the show, which features works by Spain’s Gonzalo MartínCalero and New Mexico’s Jacobo de la Serna. Known for his bold colors and abstract shapes, Martín-Calero is displaying his art in Santa Fe for the first time. The painter is also celebrated for his use of gold and silver pigments, which gives his work a regal feel that pairs well with de la Serna’s stately ceramics.

“​I don​’​t believe we have ever seen anything like this before—the melding of a European modernist painter with a New Mexico traditional ceramic artist,” say​​s gallery owner Carlos Acosta. “It​’​s two worlds coming together as one.”—Whitney Spivey Dos Mundos, through May 16, free, reception May 8, 5–8 pm, Acosta Strong Fine Art, 640 Canyon,

Indigo and Cobalt in New Spain

t he Mu se um of Spa ni sh Colonial Ar t explore s t he significa nce of t he color blue in colonial life by Emi ly Va n Cle ve

WHEN ROBIN FARWELL GAVIN, curator at the Museum of Spanish Colonial Art, began selecting items for the institution’s upcoming Blue on Blue: Indigo and Cobalt in New Spain exhibit, she didn’t have to look far beyond the museum’s collection for the materials she wanted. “Most everything featured is ours, with the exception of a small group of pieces borrowed from the Museum of International Folk Art and private collectors in New Mexico,” she says, noting that the color blue appears frequently in historical Hispanic and Native American art. Blue on Blue explores the use and importance of blue dyes and pigments in colonial life. Textiles hanging on the walls and draped over mannequins are a focal point of the exhibit, and late19th-century Rio Grande blankets complement Hopi mantas and Mexican serapes. With the exception of only a few pieces, the blues in these works were created with cobalt, which is derived from cobalt salts of alumina (a.k.a. indigo), a plant dye. As part of the exhibit, guests can watch a continually playing five-minute clip from the 2011 documentary film Blue Alchemy: Stories of Indigo, which explains how to extract indigo dye from plants. Also featured in the exhibit are 18th- and 19th-century retablos and bultos as well as Talavera bowls, plates, and jars from Puebla, Mexico, that were used in New Mexico 300–400 years ago. One of the exhibit’s most unusual pieces is a painting on hide with an image of the Christ child from the 18th century.

THE BIG SKIES and storied light of the Southwest are well represented in Manitou Galleries’ new show High Desert Views, which features nearly 40 works by Douglas Aagard of central Utah and Tom Perkinson of Northern New Mexico. “Aagard and Perkinson make paintings that are intimate views of places they know well,” says Matthew Mullins, Manitou’s marketing coordinator. “Both artists have been very prolific this year.” Aagard’s thick impasto oil works are created exclusively with a palette knife and generously applied paint to achieve varied textures, colors, and light. Perkinson’s expansive watercolor and soft pastel landscapes, which have names like Eagles at Bosque del Apache and Church at Black Mesa, also capture the light of the Southwest—in many places that will be familiar to local viewers.

a n exhibit at Ne w Concept Galle r y draws pa rallels betwee n potte r y a nd t he huma n body

IN ARTIST JULIA ROBERTS’S eyes, pots and the human form have a lot in common. “They’re strangely similar as subjects in that both are complex and fascinating vessels,” she says, noting that she first connected the two while living in Honolulu in the 1970s—a period during which she immersed herself in pottery making and people watching (usually on the beach). Fast forward four decades. On May 8, Etchings and Collagraphs: The Art of Julia Roberts opens at New Concept Gallery. The exhibit features approximately three-dozen water-based ink prints of Southwestern pottery and nude figures—all born out of Roberts’s imagination. “I start by drawing two blobs, for the abdomen and hips,” she says of her human depictions. “Arms grow out of the form. The image develops a life of its own.” After her time in Hawaii—and before relocating to New Mexico—Roberts spent 16 years studying and working in Paris and London, where she attended many figure-drawing sessions. She also fine-tuned her skills working as the illustrator for Robert Casey’s travel book Journey to the High Southwest. “I had the opportunity to make dozens of drawings of pots, pottery, ristras, and other Southwestern objects,” Roberts says. “It really was

that project that got me interested in the Southwest and wanting to move to Santa Fe in 2006.” Etchings and Collagraphs: The Art of Julia Roberts, May 8–June 1, reception May 8, 5–7 pm, New Concept Gallery, 610 Canyon,

a n exploration of Georgia O’Keeffe’s cre ative pro ce s s

GEORGIA O’KEEFFE’S aesthetic is so strong and so unified that it’s easy to imagine that it emerged from the artist fully realized. But underlying her work is a highly developed technical rigor that’s being explored in an exhibition opening May 8 at the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum. Line, Color, Composition examines the formal eleGeorgia O’Keeffe, Pelvis Series, Red with Yellow, oil on canvas, 36 x 48". ments of O’Keeffe’s creative output Extended loan, private collection. © Georgia O’Keeffe Museum. and spans the length of her career, covering a range of media—from pastel and charcoal drawing to watercolor and oil painting. Curator Carolyn Kastner cites composition as “probably one of the most important talents that O’Keeffe brings to her paintings.” It was her training with artist Arthur Wesley Dow (O’Keeffe said that he “had one dominating idea: to fill a space in a beautiful way”) that gave her an understanding of abstraction and established the basis for the development of what Kastner calls the “visual vocabulary that belongs to her.” One element of that distinctive language includes an emphasis on V-shapes, which the artist “found in architecture, flowers, and landscapes.” According to Kastner, the museum has “this treasure trove of 700 of O’Keeffe’s drawings” that came from the Georgia O’Keeffe Foundation, and those were put together with paintings to uncover common themes among them; about a dozen drawings will also be on

view. “O’Keeffe had a 60-year commitment to that drawing practice,” Kastner says. “Line is at the heart of her process.” The core of the exhibition is the connection between O’Keeffe’s drawing and painting—and in showing visitors how to recognize it themselves. “Line and composition are the least visible” elements of O’Keeffe’s work, says Kastner, but they form its foundation. The artist’s spectacular handling of hue draws viewers in, but it’s her compositional skill that keeps them engaged. “Her color is so breathtaking, you don’t see the effort underneath it,” Kastner says. “There’s so much more than putting paint on a canvas.” Line, Color, Composition, May 8– September 13, $8–$12, Georgia O’Keeffe Museum, 217 Johnson, May 7, 2015 NOW 25

Paul Steiner: Parables and Stories: A Reinterpretation Gallery 901, 708 Canyon, through May 27 Santa Fe native Paul Steiner has created a series of paintings based on his interpretations of Biblical themes within a modern New Mexico setting. The carpenter and mostly self-taught artist describes his representation of the story of Abraham’s banishment of Hagar and Ishmael as a parallel to the United States government returning immigrant children to the unsteady political environment of El Salvador. “I paint New Mexico because that’s where I live,” Steiner says. “It’s as good a setting as any other, maybe better [with its] culture of clannish tribal people struggling to live in a desert landscape.”—EVC

One Woman Dancing an intimate performance by Julie Brette Adams

One Woman Dancing, May 8–9, 8 pm, May 10, 2 pm, $15–$20, Santa Fe Playhouse, 142 E De Vargas, 28


by Emily Van Cleve ONE WOMAN DANCING is Julie Brette Adams’s annual performance at the Santa Fe Playhouse. This year the production reflects the internal (and sometimes external) life changes that the Santa Fe–based dancer and fitness/yoga/Pilates instructor has recently undergone. Last spring Adams met retired modern dancer Christopher Bowen, a native Santa Fean who had moved back to town after a 30-year absence, and invited him to be part of her show. “I haven’t been partnered by a man in a dance performance for more than a decade,” says Adams, noting that Bowen is a good foot taller than she is. “This is a big change for me.” Adams and Bowen present two dances together: L’Ange, inspired by images from Gustav Klimt paintings, and Jisei No Ku, a work about mortality and transcendence that Adams originally choreographed as a solo work in 2012. Another significant event occurred eight months ago, when Adams had hip replacement surgery. She managed to get back in the studio within weeks of the operation, but her body doesn’t move in quite the same ways it did pre-surgery. “I’ve used that as a challenge to be innovative in my creativity,” she says. In addition to her dances with Bowen, the self-described “silent poet” will present several solo works during One Woman Dancing, including her signature piece Knowing, which showcases the expressive musculature of her bare back.

Located on a dead-end lane, this Garcia Street residence is surrounded by gardens, porches, and patios that are easily accessed from the 3,256-squarefoot interior. Hand-troweled plaster, corbels, vigas, beams, and Saltillo tile floors are found throughout the home, including in the kitchen, which has copper countertops and custom cabinetry. The downstairs master bedroom has a kiva fireplace and an en suite bathroom with a Jacuzzi tub. A spacious upstairs bedroom has a sitting room, bathroom, kiva fireplace, and two porches—one of which wraps around the entire second floor. A heated three-car garage includes its own threequarter bath.

X at Skylight

First-wave American punk rockers X, formed in 1977 in Los Angeles, are still tearing it up for longtime fans and new converts alike. The band’s April 7 show was originally slated for The Lensic’s sit-down venue, but “by popular demand,” the show was moved to the standingroom-only concert space at Skylight. “The crowd of hard-core X devotees [was] thrilled to be seeing scenes from their own histories,” said one local fan. “[Vocalist/bassist] John Doe was riveting—high energy on the beat, jumping and dancing around exactly like I imagine he was 20 years ago.”—Cristina Olds May 7, 2015 NOW 29
