NOW magazine, while always emphasizing the arts, works to provide you with a variety of activities for the multitude of interests alive in our community. We’re not just an arts town, and this is precisely why living here is so wonderful. Our little city, perched on a remote mesa, has such a variety of interesting art forms, people, and events—and most important, all the passions associated with them. One non-arts event, totally new to my radar, is the New Mexico ArmSports Armwrestling Tournament, which takes place all day Saturday at Skylight Santa Fe downtown. As a sports fan, I appreciate that our community does have an interest in competitive sport. We often see boxing and MMA fighting at the local casinos, not to mention the fact that we have our own Fuego baseball team. Arm wrestling is a new one to add to the roster. But the arts are very much alive this weekend, with lots of options. From the number of art gallery openings this Friday, one would think it was still August. I love going to openings this time of year, when the smaller crowds allow for actual art viewing. Artist studio tours, which I wrote about a few weeks ago, are taking place this weekend in Abiquiú, as well as in the Madrid/Cerrillos area. Entreflamenco is now showing their new production, Generaciones Flamencas, with renowned guest artist La Tania. ShowHouse Santa Fe wraps up this weekend, too. (The Gala party last Friday was a gas.) And then, for pet lovers, there’s the Barkin’ Ball benefit event. Wow, what a weekend—no matter what your interests may be.

Becoming an art collector begins when that special piece—a dazzling Acoma pot, a subtle Molly Pesata Jicarilla Apache basket, or a dusky, deep Fritz Scholder painting— speaks to you in a voice you simply can’t ignore. The Native Treasures Collectors’ Sale is an annual opportunity to find high-quality Native American art and jewelry, with all proceeds benefiting the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture. Beginning and seasoned collectors will find art, jewelry, textiles, pottery, paintings, basketry, and sculpture from some of the Southwest’s most important private collections. Celebrated collector and longtime MIAC supporter Jane Buchsbaum suggests four ways to approach the sale and make your personal collection meaningful: Buy what you love, buy from the artist, educate yourself about the history surrounding each piece, and enrich your life by learning about other cultures.—Barbara Tyner Native Treasures Collectors’ Sale, October 10–11, 10 Am–5 pm, free, early admission, October 10, 9–10 Am, $10, Laboratory of Anthropology, Museum Hill, nativetreasures.org.

Cumbia All Stars COURTESY CUMBIA ALL STARS

New Orford String Quartet

Peruvian cumbia—also known as chicha—had its birth in the 1960s and 1970s, when the country was in the midst of economic and societal turmoil, and migrants from the rural areas began flocking to the cities, particularly Lima. Adding surf rock and the British Merseybeat to earlier strains of American rock, and blending it all with the country’s traditional sounds, several Peruvian bands gained enormous popularity. The Cumbia All Stars is an ensemble of many of those pioneering musicians, bringing their brand of dance and rhythm to new audiences more than 40 years later. In 2013 they toured 10 different European countries, following in the footsteps of the Buena Vista Social Club—the Cuban veterans who shot to international fame in 1997 after the release of the Ry Cooder–produced album of the same name and the 1999 movie that followed. Cumbia All Stars comprises Lucho Carrillo on vocals, Lucho Reyes on lead guitar, Fernando Diaz Loli on rhythm guitar, Manuel Pecho on bass, Dante Reyes on baterie and drums, Enrique Yllescas on drums, and Ernesto Cadenas on congas. The group plans to invite New Mexico musicians on stage after the performance for a ceremonial moment of folk music fraternity. This engagement of Cumbia All Stars is made possible through Southern Exposure: Performing Arts of Latin America, a program of Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts.—Carolyn Patten

Familiar and lesser-known works of chamber music mingle comfortably during the New Orford String Quartet’s performance downtown at St. Francis Auditorium on October 10. On the program are pieces by Beethoven, Debussy, and Schubert, as well as a scherzo by recently deceased Canadian composer Jacques Hétu. “We’re excited to have the New Orford String Quartet as part of our programming this season,” says Tom O’Connor, the music director and conductor of Santa Fe Pro Musica, which presents the Canadian quartet. “Each of the musicians is a principal from either the Montreal or the Toronto symphony orchestra. They’re a relatively new string quartet that has realized acclaim far beyond Canadian audiences.” In 2009, violinists Jonathan Crow and Andrew Wan, violist Eric Nowlin, and cellist Brian Manker came together for a limited touring schedule. They decided not to commit to a year-round schedule of performances but to meet periodically to work on various projects. The New Orford String Quartet is dedicated to promoting Canadian works, both past and present.—Emily Van Cleve

Cumbia All Stars, October 12, 7 pm, $15–$40, The Lensic Center for Performing Arts, 211 W San Francisco, lensic.org.

Santa Fe Pro Musica presents the New Orford String Quartet, October 10, 4 pm, $20–$69, St. Francis Auditorium, 107 W Palace, ticketssantafe.org.

silversmith Ray Van Cleve

Nearly 200 Western-American artists competed for 28 spots in the Center For Contemporary Arts’ Land Mark Show opening on October 9 in the center’s Muñoz Waxman Gallery. Juror Grace KookAnderson says she was inspired by the diverse works of painting, paper, sculpture, video, and photography, and also saw a few themes emerge. “Once artists were selected, I was able to see about four themes that came to the surface for me: Documentation of Marks on the Land, Fractured Reality of Utopian Visions, Remediation/Sustainability, and Expansive Community,” Kook-Anderson writes. A socially conscious artist, she wrote text to elucidate ideas around reversing land and environmental damage. “The artists in The Land Mark Show navigate these territories of the arid West, as we think about drought and climate change like no other time in our present history,” she notes.—Joanna Smith The Land Mark Show, through December 27, reception October 9, (5–6 pm members’ preview, 6–8 pm open to the public), Center for Contemporary Arts, 1050 Old Pecos Trl, ccasantafe.org.

RAY VAN CLEVE

Center for Contemporary Arts Land Mark Show

Working with Zuni and Navajo silversmiths in Gallup, New Mexico, then-fledgling silver worker Ray Van Cleve discovered that one task everyone wanted to avoid was making beads. That was some four decades ago, but the experience was formative to his career. “If I wanted to be a silversmith and work my way into the field,” he realized at the time, “I should do something that other people don’t like doing and do it well.” He ended up building his professional reputation on beaded necklaces fabricated from sheet silver. Since then, Van Cleve, now a master silversmith, has expanded his repertoire to include pendants, bracelets, belt buckles, and small boxes, as well as objects like the intricate freestanding rosebushes that, along with other handcrafted items, are being displayed at a trunk show at John Rippel and Company October 9 and 10. “I haven’t been showing those in Santa Fe,” the artist says of the rosebushes, each of which comprises 280 individual pieces, all separately “shaped, soldered, and put together.” Regardless of what he’s creating, Van Cleve thrives on challenge. “I like clean lines, and I like textured surfaces that create contrasts,” he says. “My pieces may show simple designs, but to execute them well is difficult.”—Eve Tolpa

NEARLY 30 YEARS AGO, Ottmar Liebert’s friend, a Santa Fe native, encouraged him to visit the City Different. “All Germans, we love Wild West novels, so of course I’d heard the name of the city,” Liebert remembers. And although the guitarist had lived only in big cities until that time, Santa Fe began to resonate with him. Three instances in particular stood out during his first few months in town. “One was going up on the ski basin and having a view for possibly 100 miles,” he says. “And the other one was—because of the desert—feeling a sense of possibility.” The third was happening upon a flamenco guitar player, a banjo player, and a classical violinist performing together at a restaurant. “And I thought, you know, this city is really interesting and obviously willing to mix things up,” Liebert says. “I figured it was something for me.” He’s lived here ever since. And during that time, Liebert has also performed all around the world—Latvia, Finland, and Germany most recently—but he reserves a particular type of show for his adopted hometown audience: the benefit concert. “I have only played in Santa Fe if it

“Any space is only as good as the people who fill it, and in this case a lot of them are friends,” Liebert says. “So that’s really the big, most appealing part about the space— not the space itself but what goes into it.”

It’s impossible to live here and not see . . . incredible vistas,” Archer says. Susan Schuler’s abstract and mixed-media paintings reflect the colors of the landscape of Abiquiú—as well as her recent travels to Havana, Cuba. She moved to Abiquiú from the greater Cincinnati, Ohio, area three years ago and observes, “The community here is a very nurturing environment for creativity. The landscape and relative seclusion of the area allow the artist [to be isolated] and concentrate on the work.” Schuler is inviting studio tour participants into her home where two other artists (Cindy Harris, glass jewelry, and Ginger Legato, sculpture and prints) will also show their work. Just south of Santa Fe, in the village of Galisteo, more than two dozen artists will open their studios October 17–18, showing off drawings, paintings, prints, photography, ceramics, sculpture, jewelry, mixed media, hand-crafted local folk art, and fiber art. This is the 28th year for the Galisteo tour, much of which can be done on foot, close to the ancient cottonwoods that line the Galisteo River. All events are free, with studio, gallery, and food stops listed on maps available on the organizations’ websites and at each stop.

The Bonsai Asian Tacos Chef Juan Carlos Ruvalcaba, who earned his chops working in fine dining at both Bouche French Bistro and Terra at Four Seasons Resort Rancho Encantado Santa Fe, has found a niche with the unique Asian-fusion street food he’s now offering from his food truck, The Bonsai Asian Tacos. “When I had a chance to get my food truck [in December 2014], I wanted to do something different from the rest of the Mexican food trucks,” Ruvalcaba says. He and his wife Carmen, who run the business together, were inspired by the popular California spicy Korean and sweet Chinese foods that Carmen’s sister introduced them to some years ago. The Extreme Tacos seen here are made with pork belly, green onion, cabbage, cucumbers, carrots, and peppers on soft corn tortillas. The menu changes with the seasons to include fresh and available ingredients, the chef says, but there are always vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, and dairy-free options. The truck will be moving from Cerrillos Road to West Alameda by the end of October to be closer to the Plaza.—Cristina Olds The Bonsai Asian Tacos, 3668 Cerrillos, 505-316-9418

D. ARTHUR WILSON’S sweeping pastel renderings of exotic wildlife are his hallmark, exploring animal forms in bold lines and eye-catching color. Wilson’s style, which he dubs “Wild Expressionism,” emphasizes unique shapes and stylish, bold lines while maintaining a high level of realistic detail. Rhupert the Ostrich is a recurring presence in Wilson’s oeuvre, described by the artist as representing “the whimsical and rather amusing lengths mankind goes to disguise his peculiar inward self.” The character appears in original works, including Wilson’s book Little Red Rhupert; as well

Mary Ray Cate

Artist and family-medicine doctor Mary Ray Cate designs nonreligious advent calendars featuring a variety of original watercolor paintings and inspirational and educational quotations and discussion questions. “Families can answer introspective questions together, from ‘what’s your favorite season’ to ‘what are your core values and how have you had to defend them,’” Cate says. The popular calendars can be found locally at The Shop: A Christmas Store; Susan’s Christmas Shop; and the Wheelwright Museum of the American Indian; as well as online on Cate’s website. Profits from the sale of her calendars, cards, and prints fund causes near to Cate’s heart, including the environment, people in need, and international peace. The artist has walked hundreds of miles in France and Japan, painting daily with a miniature watercolor kit. She compiled the artwork and haiku poems from her Japan journals into a 140-page book, Seeing in Detail.—Cristina Olds Mary Ray Cate, sunlit-art.com

Different Strokes at Gallery 901 by Emily Va n Cle ve GALLERY 901’S NEW EXHIBITION Different Strokes showcases artist Deborah Gold, who expresses her feelings and emotions through thick oil impasto work created with brush strokes and palette knives; and photographer Bobbie Goodrich, who uses innovative techniques in software programs to communicate her interpretations and perspectives. “My goal is the nourishment of the emotional self through sheer beauty and the appeal of nature,” says Gold. “My art is an art of sensitivity to light rendered in freely applied paint to create poetic imagery suggesting the joyous release I feel when observing nature. I see myself as a poet capturing the glory of nature.” Different Strokes features Gold’s richly colored local scenes of aspen trees, sunsets, and sweeping landscapes, as well as still lifes and café scenes.

The focus of Goodrich’s work is animals, including African wildlife and Icelandic horses photographed at a centuries-old annual roundup in the northern reaches of Iceland. Since 2008, she has been traveling annually to Africa, where she observes everything from herds of elephants to prides of lions. Goodrich is also fascinated by the white horses that are indigenous to the Camargue region of France. “The creativity really begins after I have my subject,” she explains. “I use five different software programs that are plug-ins to Photoshop in order to create photos from raw images. I know the software backwards and forwards. I know exactly what helps me achieve the mood I’m looking for.” Goodrich, who spent many years as a representational oil painter, enjoys the freedom she experiences through photography and adds, “I’m always looking for new methods that help me realize what I want to create.” Different Strokes: Deborah Gold and Bobbie Goodrich, through October 27, reception October 9, 5–7 pm, Gallery 901, 708 Canyon, gallery901.org

Christina Dallorso Kortz

bringing dance to drawing and drawing to dance

A freelance illustrator and artist, Christina Dallorso Kortz is also owner, creative director, and dance instructor at The Studio in Santa Fe. She began drawing when she was 9 years old, living in New York City as part of a large Italian family. She says that drawing was a way to “save her sanity,” and she has never stopped, adding to her formal training at City University of New York, Hunter College in New York, and Sonoma University in California. Kortz also studied dance with Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater in New York, The San Francisco Dance Company, and Ed Mock Dance in San Francisco. Comparing dance to drawing, she writes, “Having a strong foundation in the principles and disciplines of each, one can then express and create freely.” Her fine-lined pen-and-ink drawings don’t allow for revision or erasure, giving each piece a loose, free style. “I have been told that my images are distorted and a bit off reality. I take that as a compliment,” she writes. She has recently begun using digital techniques to add color to her original black-and-white drawings, creating illustrations that take on additional meaning and look radically different from the originals. —CP "My sanity was to spend hours drawing Tarzan and Jane comic strips ....You might say I had a 'rescue me' complex."

Brian Coffin

by Ashle y M. Big ge rs

pai nt ings t hat r e f le c t t he f or c e s of nat u re FOLK ARTIST AND SCULPTOR Brian Coffin’s journey to become a painter began in 2001. His father, artist Doug Coffin, told him to draw a circle on each of three canvases and see what came up. Brian’s path emerged one evening when a vision for a painting appeared to him. “My eyes welled up with tears of gratitude, and I thanked the universe for that gift. It was up to me to accept it,” he says. He feverishly painted to solidify the vision on canvas, creating In the Beginning, the study for the massive Journey to the Soul’s Reflection—which is also the title of his first solo show at Winterowd Fine Art. The finished 5-by-14-foot piece has become the centerpiece of this exhibit, opening at Winterowd on October 9. Coffin created the piece over the course of three years, working more than 5,000 hours. “The technique he’s been using is phenomenally incredible,” gallery owner Karla Winterowd says. “Texture is only one aspect of his work; it’s also how he layers the paint.” When she discovered the many works in Coffin’s studio, she immediately knew that he merited a solo show, and planned to mount one as soon as he produced a larger body of work from his labor-intensive process. The self-taught artist draws inspiration from nature for his color palette and for the structure of each piece. As though building a topographic map, he begins with texture and contrast, increasing both as he applies successive layers. Occasionally he incorporates textural lines, in a sense embossing Mother Earth’s fingerprint on the surface. Just as light shifts across a landscape during the day, so does it shift across the surface of Coffin’s paintings. “The paintings are going to change all day long, and in the evening, just like a landscape is never the same,” he says. This creates dynamic tension. It’s especially true of the show’s centerpiece, in which waves of lines converge and dissipate, creating contact and release, and emanating energy.

Merete Larsen and Liam Flynn: Turning Colors, Patina Gallery 131 W Palace, patina-gallery.com Through October 25 This show brings together two master European woodworkers, Merete Larsen and Liam Flynn, as part of Patina Gallery’s Year of Color series of exhibitions. Each artist is represented in museum collections across the globe, including the Danish Royal Collection and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. Danish artist Merete Larsen began working with wood as a cabinetmaker and restorer of antiques, and is now creating turned and colored vessels—most often crafted from ash or beech—that are so refined and thin they are translucent. Self-taught Irish artist Liam Flynn works mostly with oak, lathe-turning his vessels while the wood is still green, then ebonizing each piece with iron pigment— a process which brings out the natural grain and texture of the wood.—CP

Mary Long works in encaustic and mixed media, creating her often large-scale works by building on a specific color scheme and using encaustic—along with marks made with oil stick—and decorative papers. Acrylic artist Daniel Phill has had close to 100 solo and group exhibitions, beginning in 1976. His current work is an observation of nature, using flower forms and a variety of techniques—pouring, brushing, and scraping—to spontaneously apply color.—Carolyn Patten 26

An American Modernism New Mexico Museum of Art 107 W Palace, nmartmuseum.org Through February 21, 2016 In the modernist movement, early20th–century artists sought to express a new artistic vernacular—and many did so in the fertile creative grounds of New Mexico or via direct communication with those working here. The New Mexico Museum of Art’s latest exhibition, An American Modernism, explores modernism’s emergence through the works of some 50 paintings, drawings, prints, and photographs by Andrew Dasburg, Marsden Hartley, Edward Weston, and others. “This was one of the most dynamic periods in American art,” exhibition curator Katherine Ware says in a statement. “The world was changing rapidly, and many felt it was the dawning of a new age in which this country had an important leadership role. Artists took their contributions to that movement very seriously, and the exhibition articulates some of their efforts to find new subjects and forge a new language for modern times.” The show runs consecutively with O’Keeffe in Process, an exhibit spotlighting that artist’s role in the modernist movement. —Ashley M.

One of only a handful of luthiers (those who make and repair stringed instruments) in New Mexico, Donald Percious spent the majority of his professional life in the engineering field. With former careers as a groundwater hydrologist with the University of Arizona and a geologist with the U.S. Geological Survey, he now contracts with UTD, Inc., in Virginia as a geological consultant. A multitalented individual, he also studied Russian dialects at the Defense Language Institute. Before he retired in 2000, he was already working on his next career, taking five years to attend violinmaking school at the University of New Hampshire and work with individual violin makers in the Washington, D.C., area. In 2005, not long after he moved to Santa Fe, he made the transition from avocation to vocation and opened Adobe Strings, a small, one-man workshop where he makes specialty violins, violas, ukuleles, and jazz guitars. He recently relocated to a live-work space at Second Street Studios. “It allows me to separate my luthier activities from my living area,” he says. “I can go down to my studio at any time and dive in when the spirit moves me.”—Carolyn Patten

New Mexico Gunfighters Association a rip-roaring visit to the Old West Lest we forget that we live in the wild, wild, West—a place once teeming with cowboys, saloon girls, and shoot-outs—the New Mexico Gunfighters Association (NMGA) is here to remind us. The group performs regularly at El Rancho de las Golondrinas, but also travels the state for festivals and private events. This summer they’ve performed in Tucumcari, Cimarron, Santa Rosa, Estancia, Galisteo, and Belen, and have even had shoot-outs in Tombstone, Arizona. “The shoot-outs are the crowd favorites,” says James Blackburn, NMGA president. “We get a lot of laughs at our shows, but the audience is waiting for the shoot-out—it’s exciting, with lots of banging and gunsmoke flying about.” The players blast away with .22-, 44-, and .45-caliber handguns, plus rifles and a doublebarreled shotgun—all loaded with blanks. When fired, blanks expel gas and a plug that can bruise or even kill at close range, so the players present a gun safety skit at the beginning of each show. Because they dress in period-accurate wardrobe and are experienced with gun safety, many members of the group have been hired in New Mexico to work as extras in movies and television, including in the miniseries Into the West and a 2016 remake of the film The Magnificent Seven. The actors perform around 25 different original shows, and Blackburn and other members are writing new dramas for 2016. “Our gunfighters love history, and we look at the shows as education through entertainment,” says Blackburn, who is also a photographer, a filmmaker, and a composer. “All [shows have] Old West themes, many loosely based on real events, and are lighthearted comedies.” Historical characters the actors portray include Billy the Kid, Pat Garrett (who shot Billy the Kid), Doc Holliday, Wyatt Earp, “Wild Bill” Hickok, and Frank and Jesse James. The troupe of 10–15 Western reenactors, about half of whom are professional actors, performs free action-packed skits at Albuquerque’s Old Town Plaza every second and fourth Sunday through October. Since they started in 1979, the gunfighters have had more than 140 members and performed more than 1,000 shows.—Cristina Olds newmexicogunfighters.com

The Night Market The Lost Horizon Night Market, an intentionally ephemeral art project staged in roving, rented moving trucks, appeared for one night this past August on a street near the Meow Wolf complex in the Siler Road area. Those who attended were just happening by or had heard of it through word of mouth. Mark Krawczuk, a Bay–Area-based “creative instigator,” founded the Lost Horizon Night Market in 2009 with Kevin Balktick, a cultural events producer. They set the time and place for each event, and there are no admission fees. According to Krawczuk’s website, “Part of the fun of this is chasing us down. The people who want to do this will find us. Nothing is for sale, and very little trace can be found of it afterward.” Santa Fe’s Night Market was part of an August blitz where 12 teams of artists—six starting from New York and six starting from San Francisco—traveled to a new city each weekend.—Carolyn Patten
