publisher’s note

2015 |

Finally, the breeze is cooler, the sky just a bit bluer, and the sunsets over our lovely city more spectacular than ever. We can even smell it in the air. It is officially fall on the calendar, and in the look and feel of Santa Fe. We tend to dress a little better as we break into our cool-weather wardrobe, and our demeanor changes along with the jackets. Even the local activities have become a bit more refined. This sense of elegance fits well at the Santa Fe Wine and Chile Festival, where activities all weekend give us ample opportunity to sample fine wines that complement the outstanding cuisine only Santa Fe can offer. Special dinners and tastings are happening all weekend.   Attending the Santa Fe Wine and Chile Festival is not the only chic thing to do in town over the next few days. A growing influence on the national classic car scene, the Santa Fe Concorso—a juried gathering of historic and restored vehicles—presents several local events. Many of them are open to the public, and some offer free admission. All through the Concorso, we have the opportunity to see some stunning automobiles, each of which is a piece of art—well, especially to us “car guys.” Fall is Santa Fe at its most refined, and we have the joy of being here. That’s a good reason to celebrate.

Assistance Dogs of the West

Assistance Dogs of the West Graduation Ceremony, September 24, 6 pm, free, James A. Little Theater, New Mexico School for the Deaf, 1060 Cerrillos, assistancedogsofthewest.org

“Tannhäuser and the Road to Redemption: Wagner Decoded” Composers often use opera to explore existential questions, and it is the conflict between erotic and spiritual love that is at the heart of Richard Wagner’s Tannhäuser. So says Performance Santa Fe’s general director, Joe Illick, who will be illuminating that and other themes via discussion and musical excerpts at “Tannhäuser and the Road to Redemption: Wagner Decoded.” Illick promises “a very accessible talk” that familiarizes attendees with “Wagner the man and Wagner the composer.” Based on a real-life 14th century German minnesinger (a troubadour who chronicles courtly love) and the myth of Venus, the 1845 opera typifies Wagner’s approach to narrative. He frequently looked to the past “to keep people from getting hung up about what they know about current events,” Illick says. “He saw that history was still very much alive.” In addition to providing piano accompaniment to select pieces performed by tenor Nicholas Simpson, Illick will also lead an audience singalong. Yes, really. “Opera may seem inaccessible and off-putting,” he says, “but it’s not. Wagner is a controversial figure, yet the genius in him is seeing the depths of human nature and creating some of the most beautiful music ever”—music that, in the case of Tannhäuser, “seamlessly blends the sensual and the spiritual.”—Eve Tolpa “Tannhäuser and the Road to Redemption: Wagner Decoded,” September 24, 7:30 pm, $25, United Church of Santa Fe, 1804 Arroyo Chamiso, performancesantafe.org.

Over the past 20 years, Assistance Dogs of the West has placed more than 300 canines with human clients who need help with physical, psychological, and developmental disabilities. The organization is marking its second decade with a heartwarming graduation on September 24, when volunteers pass service animals to the canines’ new partners. The organization has found great success with founder Jill Felice’s original vision—to foster the healing human–canine bond—and it continues to grow. ADW is the first service dog agency in the U.S. to work with the Veterans’ Court Program, providing emotional support for veterans in the judicial system. It also works with the national Warrior Canine Connection at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, in a partnership that provides service dogs to physically injured veterans. In a parallel program, returning veterans volunteer to train the service dogs, and the benefits of this volunteer work are significant. According to ADW executive Director Linda Milanesi, “In our 20year history of engaging students of all abilities in the training of service dogs, we have seen the profound benefits that this process can bring to participants: the warmth of connection that promotes trust; the physical and mental engagement that improves focus, memory, speech, and coordination; and an enormous sense of accomplishment.” —Ashley M. Biggers

Santa Fe Concorso

With more than 110 captivating cars, motorcycles, and bicycles, nonprofit Santa Fe Concorso is at it again. From September 25–27, this sixth annual event celebrates the beauty of mechanical motion via seminars, a judged exhibition of “rolling works of art,” and more. A daytime presentation by Luigi Chinetti Jr. and an evening showcase of vintage World War II Warbirds and other speed displays will kick off opening day at the Santa Fe Municipal Airport. The following day, entrants showcase their vehicles in a Mountain Tour caravan that proceeds from the Santa Fe Plaza to the town of Cerrillos. The stunning Club at Las Campanas hosts the main event on Sunday, September 27. Displayed on the ninth fairway and surrounded by mountain views, glistening classic cars and motorcycles will be judged based on elegance, authenticity, provenance, and craftsmanship. A silent auction not only allows attendees to take home artwork and other items, but it also funds various charities. Concessions and popular Concorso merchandise will be available. Standout vehicles at this year’s Concorso include an assortment of Ferraris, an homage to GM designer Harley Earl’s 1938 Buick Y-Job, Bill Mitchell’s 1959 Cadillac Cyclone, and a display of three exceptional 1930s Willys–Knight plaidsides.—Elizabeth Sanchez Santa Fe Concorso, September 25–27, various times and locations, and prices, santafeconcorso.com September 24, 2015 NOW 3


Connoisseurship and Good Pie: Ted Coe and Collecting Native Art A series of "curatorial conversations" is intended to accompany and expand upon the Ralph T. Coe Foundation for the Arts exhibition, now at the Wheelwright Museum. Each of the events includes a guided tour of Connoisseurship and Good Pie: Ted Coe and Collecting Native Art. On September 29, the subject is Problems in Curation, a freewheeling conversation among Bruce Berstein, foundation curator and executive director; Jonathan Batkin, director of the Wheelwright Museum; and Henrietta Lidchi, keeper of the Department of World Art in the National Museums of Scotland in Edinburgh. This program is free with museum admission. On October 24, artist Dyani White Hawk joins Bruce Bernstein for a conversation, guided tour of the museum, catered lunch/ reception, and behind–the–scenes access to the Coe Foundation collection. This particular conversation, according to the foundation, “will propose a new perspective on curation that includes the voice of the artist as curator, as well as that of curator as a creative actor.­— CP

Carlos Henriquez

Bassist Carlos Henriquez is the group’s “go–to” expert on Latin music.

Carlos Henriquez, bassist for the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, first met internationally renowned trumpeter Wynton Marsalis, the orchestra’s managing and artistic director, when he attended New York’s Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts in the mid–‘90s. Marsalis lived just a block from the school, and a mutual acquaintance made the introduction, but the friendship between the two musicians solidified on the basketball court behind the school, where Marsalis liked to shoot hoops. “I started hanging out with him a lot,” Henriquez recalls. “Sometimes I would cut a class, go to his house to play (basketball) with him, and then go back to school.” Immediately after he graduated from high school, Henriquez was offered a one-year contract to play bass with the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra while another musician was on sabbatical, and in 2002 became a permanent member of the ensemble. Henriquez, who is the son of Puerto Rican natives, has a solid background in Latin music. While he was in high school, he worked professionally in the Latin music market as a backup musician. Through the years he has become a driving force to integrate Latin and Afro-Cuban music into the ensemble’s repertoire. “I’m the orchestra’s go-to expert on Latin music,” he says, “but it took years for trust to develop to the point where I was allowed to direct and arrange the music.” Henriquez had his chance to shine when he became the musical director for Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra’s 2010 concerts in Cuba, which resulted in the two-disc Live in Cuba album. He also put together a group of musicians for Blue Engine Records’ latest release The Bronx Pyramid. Released on September 18, that album features big band arrangements of music from jazz and Latin traditions. Henriquez, Marsalis, and the 14 other members of the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra present the many manifestations of jazz in a sold-out concert at The Lensic Performing Arts Center on September 29. The evening will include tunes by legendary musicians Charles Mingus, Duke Ellington, Dizzy Gillespie, and Dave Brubeck, along with Latin music from several recent albums recorded on Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Blue Engine Records label. “Wynton understands leadership and knows that things work best when all of us are actively contributing to the group,” Henriquez says. “We’re really a bunch of soloists who play together.” Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, September 29 at the Lensic Performing Arts Center, sold out

The historic Frank Applegate Estate is getting a “Lux New Mex” makeover for ShowHouse Santa Fe 2015.

Lux New Mex by An n e Mac lac hla n

turning a historic Eastside home into the 2015 ShowHouse Santa Fe Twenty-nine top Santa Fe interior designers have come together to create the highly anticipated ShowHouse Santa Fe, making an extraordinary collaborative donation of their talents and resources as they update a historic Eastside estate in creative New Mexico styles. Individuals and teams have each redesigned an indoor or an outdoor space in the gorgeous Frank Applegate Estate, a late-18thcentury adobe presented by the real estate team of Bodelson Spier. This year’s home “is not [simply] Santa Fe ‘style,’” says designer Jennifer Ashton of Jennifer Ashton Interiors about the ShowHouse choice for 2015. “With its history—so authentic to our region—it’s a Santa Fe original. We hadn’t yet done a project with such old bones.” Noting the world-famous “Santa Fe appeal,” she adds that the focus this year is to honor that concept without being cliché. The Frank Applegate Estate was perfect for this concept. With a fascinating history that includes its origins as a Spanish fortress, the six-bedroom home’s new look for 2015 will reflect this year’s theme of Lux New Mex by incorporating classic elements into new approaches. Ashton, who will be designing the living room along with her ShowHouse event cofounder David Naylor, explains the influence of fashion on this year’s design

New approaches to classic elements characterize the transformation.

theme. “Last year it was metallic; this year it’s a return to leather, denim and suede,” she says, “and the challenge for the designers will be how to reinvent it.” The results of the transformations will be revealed on Friday, October 2, at a gala event (tickets for both the gala and the public tours are available online at ShowHousesantafe.com). The public may view the designers’ creations on Saturday, October 3, and Saturday, October 10, from 11 am to 6 pm; as well as Sunday, October 4, and Sunday, October 11, from 11 am to 4 pm. ShowHouse Santa Fe doubles as a fundraiser that transforms not only living spaces but lives, as proceeds will once again benefit Dollars4Schools.org. Last year, more than 20 classroom projects were funded in literature, mathematics, special education, science, and the arts; and 50 children were assisted with warm winter clothing and other basic needs—all by monies raised from ShowHouse tickets and donations. All in all, approximately 2,000 schoolchildren were affected through improvements in school programs or other donations. ShowHouse Santa Fe 2015 anticipates having an even larger impact on these programs, and being able to affect the lives of many more area schoolchildren. ShowHouse Santa Fe, Saturday, October 3, and Saturday, October 10, 11 am—6 pm; Sunday, October 4, and Sunday, October 11, 11 am—4 pm; $25.

shop with the chef Il Piatto’s Matt Yohalem is a regular at the Santa Fe Farmers Market Il Piatto markets itself as an Italian farmhouse kitchen, and for Executive Chef Matt Yohalem, a big part of maintaining that image is constantly sourcing food from local farmers markets. “In the early part of the season, I go to all of the [area] markets, as the choices are less predictable,” he says. “During the prime season, many of the farmers come to me, so it is more of a scouting and social trip to the market. I also have farmers and foragers from all over the state supply me throughout the year.”

“This is my favorite time of the year,” Yohalem says. “Due to the extreme highs and lows of Santa Fe’s high dessert climate, farmers are able to harvest both autumn and summer produce simultaneously. Squash blossoms are available next to the pumpkins. Cherry tomatoes and basil sit next to celery root and leeks.”

Matt Romero (Right, plaid shirt) is one of Yohalem’s premier suppliers—and a close friend. “We do promotions and donations together; we hunt and fish together,” Yohalem says. “Each year, Matt and I team up for Wild Game or Farm Dinners to be donated at auction to likeminded organizations such as the Farmer’s Market Institute, Slow Food, Farm to Table, and Earthcare.”

Yohalem purchases goat from the Santa Fe Farmers Market or from specialty wholesalers. “I try to buy local,” he says. “In the past when we’ve raised goats we would celebrate by having a staff party goat roast.”

goat loin chops When selecting produce, Yohalem looks for flavor first. “Just because it’s local or seasonal does not mean it tastes great,” he explains. “There are many intangible elements, so I taste everything I buy.” And when it comes to cooking outside the restaurant, Yohalem is his own supplier. “We have land with chickens, turkeys, herb gardens, vegetable gardens, dogs, and a beautiful open kitchen,” he says. “We get fresh eggs daily.” Turning such food into a meal is a “great joy” and “personally fulfilling” for Yohalem. “Whether at the restaurant or at home, my first rule of cooking is to have fun,” he explains. “I apprenticed with an old French master chef who believed in ‘a little wine for the sauce and a little wine for the chef,’ so I usually enjoy some good wine while I’m cooking—makes it easy to smile.”

Yohalem purchases goat from the Santa Fe Farmers Market or from specialty wholesalers. These pan-roasted loin chops are served with celery root puree, roasted beets, green onions, and a rosemary squash-blossom pesto. “Other parts of the goat need slow roasting or braising, but the loin is tender enough for the pan,” Yohalem says. “I seared the chops in a hot pan with olive oil and herbs and finished them in the oven, served medium rare.” Editor’s note: Stay up to date with what’s available each month with the Santa Fe Farmers’ Market’s online produce calendar, farmersmarketinstitute.org/wpcontent/uploads/Monthly-Market-ProductList-by-Class.htm September 24, 2015 NOW 17

For the past year, artist Tom Blazier has been working hard to capture the magnificent New Mexico skies as they change, especially during monsoon season. The results are displayed in nine extraordinary skyscapes inspired by moving clouds, light, and shadow patterns across the landscape of the state. About his work, Blazier writes, “Whatever words are used to describe my paintings, it is the sheer beauty of the Southwest landscape that inspires my creativity, and it is dramatic lighting and atmosphere that are identifiable features of my work.”—CP

Roland van Loon “We’re bombarded by so much bad news,” says van Loon. “I feel responsible to present the other side and to capture the joy in life.”

splashing joy on canvas Most Santa Feans have seen artist Roland van Loon’s exuberant paintings over the last decade and a half, even if they have never visited his studio and gallery at 612 Agua Fria. About 15 years ago, Canyon Road restaurant El Farol commissioned van Loon to paint a mural depicting flamenco dancers and musicians; and this year, his painting of lively dancing cows was printed as the menu cover at Cowgirl restaurant in Santa Fe. Two of his paintings will be included in the upcoming International Folk Art Museum’s yearlong exhibit The Spirit of Flamenco. “The dynamic between the audience, the dancers, and the musicians evokes a passion in me that I then paint,” van Loon says. “I see the different cultures here in Santa Fe—the Indians, the Mexicans, the Spanish—and I connect the dots to represent how these cultures interact.” Living permanently in Santa Fe for the past 15 years, van Loon travels often to his other home in Hawaii, where his work is inspired by sea scenes.—Cristina Olds rolandvanloon.net

Sometimes van Loon sketches first and sometimes he paints directly on canvas without sketches.

“Everyone has a different level of tolerance for sensuality,” Fiedler says of the mixed reactions to her work. “It just makes me all the more compelled to explore my fascination with the human form.”

Love Me For All That I Am (oil, 66 x 36") incorporates a vintage slip from World War II that belonged to Fiedler’s mother-in-law. “The label proudly reads ‘Dupont Nylon,’ producer of lingerie and hosiery for women,” Fiedler explains. “Nylon was invented as a replacement when silk was needed for the war effort.”

“My paintings are unapologetically sensuous,” says figurative artist Pamela Frankel Fiedler. “Strong hands and feet are my vehicle to express the qualities of wisdom, courage and intelligence. That, in my opinion, is true beauty.” Fiedler began studying the human figure during college in California. Using “natural, everyday models,” she creates her softly focused, highly detailed works in a variety of media, including oil on canvas and linen; oil on gold, silver, or copper leaf; and oil on abstract acrylic backgrounds. Fiedler moved to Santa Fe 20 years ago and currently works several days a week on smaller paintings at Intrigue Gallery, where her show A Mild Case of Madness will open on September 25. “Otherwise I’m happily working on larger pieces in my in-home studio off Rodeo Road,” she says. “I love Santa Fe for its rich and nurturing support of the arts and artists.”—Whitney Spivey intriguegallery.com

Aleta Pippin

For experimental artist Aleta Pippin, the old is new—but even better. Her upcoming show, Back to the Future, The Art of Exploration (opening on September 25 at her Canyon Road gallery, Pippin Contemporary), marks a return to the oils and acrylics she first painted with more than 20 years ago. “I did ‘new and different’ last year with the LED lights,” Pippin says, referring to her works on acrylic panels that allowed light to glow from within the artwork. “I went back to painting with oils and I still use acrylics and resin, but it feels like I’m getting better.” Pippin has lived in Santa Fe since 1991 and has been painting since 1992. She has continued to evolve as a fine artist over the past two decades, but remains enamored with color and the feelings it evokes in her abstract art. She and the artists represented by her gallery are experts in sending viewers on a sensory journey inspired by vibrant color. “Color, like music, touches people on an emotional and spiritual level that physically heightens us,” Pippin says. “Color can be uplifting, and by painting nonobjective images, a viewer gets inside themselves and . . . walks away with their own interpretation.” Keeping contemporary in her artwork seems to align with her changing styles, and even with the return to oil and acrylic on canvas, she notes she will continue to explore. As an example, Pippin cites her use of aluminum or resin panels as a substrate that allows her paintings to appear as if they float on the wall. “Experimenting with materials and technology [lets me] make something that has that traditional craftsmanship, but with a more contemporary feeling,” she explains. Becoming a full-time artist and gallery owner hasn’t been Pippin’s only career—she was a successful entrepreneur decades ago in Texas after first raising a family. She opened a gallery in Santa Fe with artist Barbara Meikle in 2006 and founded Pippin Contemporary in 2011. How does a busy gallery owner manage to create a body of work for a new show every year or more? Pippin spends afternoons at her studio where she disappears into her “little private world.” Although she enjoys the interaction with visitors to the gallery and other artists, she relishes the alone time and the quiet energy of her studio. “As artists, we’re just putting our art out there,” she adds. “The journey I want the viewer to walk with me is that of discovering there’s beauty and a reason to be joyful. That to me is what art is all about.”—Cristina Olds pippincontemporary.com

In his artist statement, Hamilton writes, “Using mirrors, steel, and magnets to explore the intersection of invisible force with tangible material, I will investigate the confusion which arises from a mind that believes itself separate from experiential phenomena.” The mixed media pieces are a departure from his previous large-scale sculptures, seeking to “distill large-scale concepts into small-scale sculpture.”—CP September 24, 2015 NOW 25

Natalie Featherston: The Art of Deception Meyer East Gallery, 225 Canyon meyereastgallery.com, reception September 25, 5–7 pm Natalie Featherston is a modern-day trompe l’oeil master, creating paintings that each tell a story through stunningly realistic brushwork and sophisticated humor. The Chicago Sun-Times describes her paintings as “artful beyond just illusion and trickery; they are truly masterful still lifes made with both craft and wit.” Featherston began her artistic career when she left North Carolina and moved to New York City to pursue a master’s degree in music. Formerly a professional cellist, she has performed at Carnegie Hall and throughout Europe as a soloist and as part of a chamber music ensemble. In New York, she enrolled in drawing classes at the Art Student’s League of New York “and I was hooked.” Following more study at the National Academy of Design, the School of Visual Arts, and the Drawing Academy of the Atlantic, she spent six years as an apprentice with Michael Aviano. “What inspires me most is the creative voice, whimsy and humor trompe l’oeil allows the artist to express,” Featherston writes in her artist statement. “Unlike portraits or landscapes, still life doesn’t simply exist around us. You have to build the stage for the painting, selecting the subjects, colors, and textures. … I’ve always found trompe l’oeil to be quite a challenge for these reasons, and although it may qualify me for the ‘one-trick-pony’ category, I can’t imagine painting anything else.”—CP Natalie Featherston, Hot Stuff, oil on panel, 18 x 13"

Multimedia and ceramic artist Laura Walkingstick believes that art can heal, finding that peace can be attained through creating artwork. For Laura, this happens when she’s making her one-of-a-kind ceramic toys and cloth dolls while exploring childhood memories— her own and those of her mother. Walkingstick was inspired by stories that her mother, a member of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians in North Carolina, shared about her childhood struggles. “I’ve wanted to understand the pain my mother carried with her that she didn’t talk about, from growing up poor and from her time at Indian boarding school,” Walkingstick says. “When I started making dolls, that triggered my thinking about my own parallel experiences.” After earning an associate degree from the Institute of American Indian Arts in 2003, Walkingstick returned to North Carolina, where she worked at the Museum of the Cherokee Indian. She observed that museum visitors bought dolls, and, already determined not to be a “starving artist,” she started making and selling her own Cherokee versions. Her work is now available at the Museum of Contemporary Native Arts, where she works part-time. Back at IAIA in 2010, Walkingstick studied ceramics and was reminded of her mother’s collection of porcelain dolls. “I researched the materials and toys of her time period growing up, and I wanted to honor her by making pretty Native dolls,” Walkingstick says. “My work is toys and their stories.” A small painting of a doll was recently selected for Imago Mundi, a collection commissioned by Luciano Benetton, and in 2013 she was chosen as a SITE Santa Fe Scholar. While working in a Santa Fe preschool, Walkingstick noticed that the art activities she led in class helped to calm the children who had anger issues. Realizing the emotional benefits of making and sharing her art, she’s now working on a master’s degree in art therapy from Southwestern College (She recently graduated from IAIA with a BFA in ceramics). “With my artwork, I want to bring attention to how fragile we are as children,” Walkingstick explains, “just like clay that can be strong but still break, and that we can fix, but the cracks will always show.”—Cristina Olds

Intern on set! Garson Studios and Santa Fe Studios turn students into film professionals

nort h ern new m e x i c o ’ s f inest dinin g e x perien c es

At the Santa Fe University of Art & Design, (SFUAD), there was once a division between the film school and the working Garson Studios, located on campus, but director Paula Amanda made the decision to bring student interns and studio professionals together. “We created this community between the students and the professional world,” she said in a recent interview.“[I] imagined what it would look like to come in the door and see eight guys dressed as bikers, or five guys dressed as Wild Bill Hickock.” Across town, the internship program for Santa Fe Studios (SFS) has become a point of pride for studio president Jason Hool, a sixthgeneration filmmaker. Hool points out that “with a multi-generational perspective, we know that you have to look to the future…so training the workforce of tomorrow is very important.” The internship programs at both studios are working well. After the SFUAD business hub was established, recent graduate Taylor Hilburn got work on The Homesman with award-winning cinematographer Rodrigo Prieto. As part of the SFS internship program, Santa Fe Community College intern Emmanuelle John was hired as Neil deGrasse Tyson’s assistant/driver for his Cosmos TV series. While Emmanuelle drove Tyson to and from the set, he explained to her “how a star is born in our universe and how a microwave works.” On the working professional level, the local studio production schedules are bursting. Within the last year, Garson Studios completed season four of Netflix’s Longmire and season two of SWGN’s Manhattan. Tina Fey’s Fun House turned the school library into a U.S. embassy; a faculty member had a speaking part, plus thirty-two background actors performed in front of the camera. Behind the scenes, at least fifteen students worked as shadow interns along with over 175 filmmakers. Recently, Santa Fe Studios completed Adam Sandler’s Ridiculous 6, Shane Black’s Edge, a House of Cards episode and Antoine Fuqua’s The Magnificent Seven. Jason Hool plans to bring multi-million-dollar symphonic sound scoring to his studio, noting the importance of mobile technology. “Cosmos was [doing some] editing real-time on site,” he says. “The producers were walking around the sound stages looking at their iPads at what the editors had done on our Wi-Fi.” The Santa Fe University of Art & Staying competitive with Los Angeles and other cities is a Design brings students and studio professionals together. crucial part of growth plans for both Garson Studios and Santa Fe Studios, and interns are helping to make that happen. Postproduction—“post-pro,” as it’s known—is the arrangement of editing, sound design and special effects. Still in its infancy in Santa Fe, this aspect of professional film production will eventually catch up with the West Coast. The SFUAD film school has editing bays and teaches sound design, and when Longmire is in production, they hire an intern to transmit dailies to L.A. —Joanna Smith 28
