publisher’s note


It’s studio tour season—yet another wonderful Santa Fe-area opportunity to visit artists in their actual studios. Over the next several weeks and well into October, you’ll be able to step into the realms of several hundred artists and feel what their working spaces are like. The organization (or lack thereof ) of art supplies gives us insight into that artist’s creative process. We might even begin to feel what they feel in this environment. We get to look through the windows that are often the artists’ inspiration. What a treat it is to feel the inspiring energy emitted from these studios! A tour like this is not unlike going to a foreign country; the most fascinating aspect of the trip is seeing how real people live their lives. It’s a marvelous thing to see where creative people work their magic and where their genius takes hold, as beautiful art begins to emerge. The spilled paint droplets, unfinished canvasses, and even the messy workspaces are all casualties of this creative process; this is what we don’t see when the finished work is displayed in one of Santa Fe’s fine galleries. It’s where the blood, sweat, and possibly the tears all occur in the creation of great art. On this journey, you will also have an opportunity to see areas around Santa Fe that you might not be aware of. This weekend alone features both the Pecos Studio Tour and the High Road Art Tour (the road to Taos). Half the fun here is exploring these areas and seeing where painters, metalsmiths and sculptors have settled. As we explore the human condition through the arts, feeling other people’s existence and experiencing their sense of place is where artistic enlightenment communicates itself. Like the light celebrated by countless Santa Fe artists, let it shine.

All Trails Lead to Santa Fe Conference

All Trails Lead to Santa Fe Conference, September 17–20, costs vary, Santa Fe Community Convention Center, 201 W Marcy,

La Tania performs with Entreflamenco as a special guest artist

christine fu

On the heels of the arrival at the Santa Fe Plaza of a team of riders from the Backcountry Horsemen of America (who just finished a 1,200-mile ride along the Old Spanish Trail trading route from Cajon Pass, California), the All Trails Lead to Santa Fe conference begins today. The conference offers an exploration of the environmental, sociological, and historical aspects of El Camino Real de Tierra Adentro, the Santa Fe Trail, and the Old Spanish Trail. Spanning thousands of miles and linking Mexico to Missouri in the east and to California in the west, the three trails formed a pivotal network for trade and communication during the past centuries. With four days of lectures by authors, historians, and archaeologists, and guided tours of the trails, the conference appeals to scholars and the general public alike. A musical theater performance on Friday evening brings pivotal moments on the trails to life, and the conference culminates with a children’s musical performance and a banquet on Saturday. —Cristina Olds

Generaciones Flamencas Produced by Entreflamenco and presented by Spanish DanzArt Society, Generaciones Flamencas spotlights renowned guest artist La Tania for the new fall season. Born in France and raised in Andalucia, Spain, the internationally acclaimed flamenco dancer and choreographer La Tania performs with Entreflamenco’s co-director Estefania Ramirez and an accompanying cast of dancers and musicians. Over the years, La Tania has been awarded fellowships from the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts, and twice has won the Isadora Duncan Dance Award for Artistic Excellence in the category of Individual Performance. She is the director and founder of the Bay Area–based La Tania Baile Flamenco Company and School. The multimedia Generaciones Flamencas show, featuring original costumes and lighting in a venue designed specifically for flamenco performances, promises a “feminine interpretation of flamenco dance choreography through the various generations of dancers exhibited.” The performance is directed by Entreflamenco’s co-artistic director Antonio Granjero. —Cristina Olds Generaciones Flamencas, 8 pm, Wednesday–Saturday, September 16–October 10, $25–$45, Maria Benitez Cabaret, The Lodge at Santa Fe, 750 N St. Francis, September 17, 2015 NOW 1

Almost Adults

Fresh, hot sopapillas with local honey are a specialty at Rancho de Chimayó Restaurante

courtesy rancho de chimayÓ restaurante

This Saturday, September 19, Rancho de Chimayó Restaurante celebrates its 50th anniversary, with Mariachi Buenaventura; local bands Los Primos and Perfección; artisans displaying local crafts; and of course, the famous stuffed sopapillas, fresh salsa, mounds of guacamole, and bracing tequila concoctions that have made the restaurant famous. As she is most days, owner Florence Jaramillo will be there to greet guests and ensure each meal is perfection. Jaramillo’s awards list is long and well deserved: In 1987, she was named New Mexico’s restaurateur of the year; Nation’s Restaurant News put the restaurant in its Hall of Fame in 1988; Hispanic magazine chose it as one of the top 50 Hispanic restaurants in the country in 1999, 2000 and 2001; and in 2005, Jaramillo and Rancho de Chimayó Restaurante were given a lifetime achievement award from the National Restaurant Association. At some point during all these awards and honors, Florence was named a New Mexico Culinary Treasure. It could be because she, her husband, Arturo, and the restaurant are credited with bringing authentic New Mexican cuisine – rich with chiles and whole pinto beans, farm produce and family recipes—into the national consciousness. Florence and Arturo started the restaurant in the family home in 1965 and, with the exception of a 14-month closure to repair fire damage in 2008, the food and hospitality have been drawing eager diners ever since.—Carolyn Patten

On September 18, playwright Aaron Leventman brings his poignant portrayal of vulnerability to Warehouse 21 in Santa Fe’s Railyard District. First performed in New York City, Almost Adults is a program of five one-act plays with universal themes of identity, familial conflict, sex, security, and love. What’s most appealing about Leventman’s amalgam of theater is when he uses a stereotypical situation, turns it on its head, and takes the audience along for the ride, as he does in Second Year Itch. Actor David Daniel plays easygoing Jamie in the comedic Itch, a metaphorical farce about gay couple longevity. Transitions from one play to the next are well choreographed by stage manager Leslie Reeves; it’s intriguing when David Daniel reappears in the second play as an almostthreatening letch in Under Age alongside a nuanced performance by Gabel Rak. In early rehearsals, the night’s most emotional drama and strongest performances come from Michael Guajardo and Danette Sills in Confessions of a Character Actor, a story of courage and longing that transcends plot and stereotypes. It’s rare for a writer to show such personal vulnerability. Leventman took a risk

with Confessions, and it pays off in this outstanding production. Almost Adults’ universal themes are represented in the revolving, minimalist stage sets, which add a dynamic layer to the program. Director Alaina Warren Zachary’s considerable Broadway talents are reflected in the character casting, actor coaching, and codirector mentoring. Appropriate for ages 14 and up, Almost Adults is a good piece of theater. Leventman’s intention is to give Santa Fe actors and crew the opportunity “to do original work and add diversity to the performing arts community.” A special reception and performance on September 18 will feature food, live music, an art show, and a proclamation to be read by Mayor Javier Gonzales declaring September 18, 2015 “Almost Adults LGBTQ Theater Day.”—Joanna Smith Almost Adults, September 17-27, 7:30 pm Thursdays–Saturdays and 2 pm Sundays, $6-$20; reception and performance September 18, 6:30 pm, $40, Warehouse 21, Santa Fe Railyard, https://

Santa Fe Thunder More than 300 runners are expected to compete in Santa Fe Thunder

A half marathon is 13.1 miles—the same distance from Fort Marcy Recreation Center to Buffalo Thunder Resort and Casino. On September 20, more than 300 runners will attempt to conquer that expanse on foot during the fifth annual Santa Fe Thunder Half Marathon. “They will join a world class field racing down the Old Taos Highway from Fort Marcy, past the Santa Fe Opera, through Tesuque Village and Tesuque Pueblo, past Camel Rock, down to the finish at Buffalo Thunder,” explains race director Joseph Karnes, noting that the course drops 1,000 feet along the way. “We will all run together in this beautiful place early Sunday morning during a magical time of year.” Those wanting a shorter distance can sign up for the Lightning 5K, which starts and finishes near Buffalo Thunder. “All participants will receive a Dri-FIT T-shirt featuring a design by Jemez Pueblo artist Bernice Gachupin, and all finishers will receive a finisher’s medal with her design,” Karnes says. “One hundred and eighty medals created by Pueblo artists will be awarded to the top three finishers in fourteen age groups in both the half marathon and 5K.” Karnes also stresses that the race is about much more than finishers’ awards, or even getting from Point A to Point B. Santa Fe Thunder is a celebration of wellness and culture. Tarahumara Indians (of Born to Run fame) and elite African athletes will be among the runners competing, and visitors will include a delegation of senior Kenyan government officials, including the Minster of Sport and Culture, the Minister of Tourism, and several governors. “They will help celebrate our guest of honor and Santa Fe resident Caroline Rotich,” Karnes says. Rotich, who won the 2015 Boston Marathon in April, is from Nyahururu, Kenya. After the race, ticket holders may attend the inaugural Harrambee (Swahili for “we all pull together”) Gala at La Mesita Ranch. Guests will enjoy performances by Pojoaque Pueblo Youth 14

a scenic (mostly) downhill half marathon from Fort Marcy to Buffalo Thunder Resort

Medals with designs created by Pueblo artists will be awarded to all finishers.

Hoop Dancers, live African music, and a silent auction that will include 50–yard–line Denver Bronco football tickets; art from Kenya, Copper Canyon, Mexico, and the Southwest; and a meal for 10 prepared in the purchaser’s home by Jambo Café owner Ahmed Obo. Racers and guests will also be treated to cocktails and dinner, which— after running 13.1 miles—might be the best perk of all. Santa Fe Thunder Half Marathon and Lightning 5K, September 20, 8 am, $15–$75, Fort Marcy, 490 Bishops Lodge; Harrambee Gala, September 20, 5:30 pm, $125, La Mesita Ranch, 96 NM 503,

Tasting, tasting, and more tasting—it just brings a smile to everyone’s face.

Wine & Chile Fiesta 25 years of delicious wine, food, and cheer Toasting its silver anniversary this year, the Santa Fe Wine & Chile Fiesta remains a celebration of local restaurants. “Our identity hasn’t changed,” says executive director Greg O’Byrne, of the event that will include Eric DiStefano of Coyote Café; Louis Moskow of 315 Restaurant and Wine Bar; Charles Dale of Bouche Bistro; James Campbell Caruso of La Boca; and Martin Rios of Restaurant Martín, among others. O’Byrne was at the event’s start 25 years ago, when attendees paid $10 for 10 chits redeemable for nibbles from 20 area restaurants. Since then, the fiesta has grown to span five days—September 23 to 27 this year— encompass more than 30 events, and feature 75 Santa Fe restaurants and 100 world-class wineries. “We’ve really been embraced by national wineries; that becomes a win-win for the attendees,” O’Byrne says. The fiesta includes six guest chef winery luncheons, eight wine seminars by master sommeliers, forty nightly wine dinners at area restaurants, plus tours, cooking demonstrations, and tasting events. Guest chefs such as Matthew Accarrino of the Michelin one-star restaurant SPQR in San Francisco and Stephan Pyles of Stephan Pyles Restaurant in Dallas will host luncheons and cooking demos. The fiesta culminates in the Grand Tasting on Saturday, September 26, on the grounds of Santa Fe Opera. Although a new tradition, O’Byrne says the second annual Gran Fondo Bike Ride will be one of the most entertaining events of the week—as well as one that may still have tickets available for latecomers to the always-soldout Fiesta. Cyclists will balance a healthy 65- or 50-mile ride from the Four Seasons Resort Rancho Encantado Santa Fe with delectable food stops

More than 30 events beckon wine collectors and foodies. Celebrating its 25th year, the Santa Fe Wine & Chile Fiesta is larger than ever.

from chefs Matthew Accarrino, Andrew Cooper, and others. The ride concludes with tacos from Mark Kiffin’s Zacatecas restaurant and sips of Champagne Ruinart. To mark its 25th year, the fiesta will also honor its volunteer board, which includes Al Lucero, one of the founders of the homegrown event a quarter century ago.

turkey leg, m’lady? Take a weekend of time travel at the Santa Fe Renaissance Fair, back to the days when lords and ladies ruled and turkey legs were a popular fast food treat. The tranquil grounds at El Rancho de las Golondrinas living history museum will become a hub of activity as actors portraying King Ferdinand, Queen Isabella, and their royal court wander the 200-acre property. Strait-laced, textbookish history it isn’t: Eight members of Order of Epona, a five–year–old group of Renaissance and medieval festival entertainers from Fort Collins, Colorado, bring to the museum four of their horses to demonstrate sword and ax fighting, and will present a jousting event. “We’ve prepared a 40–minute show that we’ll do twice a day,” says jouster Jeremy Johnson. “We use lances that are made out of wood and swords made out of steel. Our fights are fast and intense. There’s definitely danger involved, and occasionally we suffer minor injuries.” Kids’ activities, such as frog catapulting games, are an integral part of the weekend. Everyone can enjoy the talents of local belly dancers appearing on 16

Paper Dosa Santa Fe diners hit the culinary jackpot once again with the addition of Paper Dosa to the city’s list of unique and delicious restaurants. Chef Paulraj Karuppasamy and his wife and business partner Nellie Tischler opened the South Indian restaurant next door to Maria’s on Cordova in spring, and business has been brisk ever since. Based on the popular street food called “Chicken 65” from Chennai, the capital city of the Indian state of Tamil Nadu, the Chennai Chicken appetizer seen here is marinated eight hours in yogurt, ginger, garlic paste, and spices including mint, coriander, cumin, and red chili powder. It’s then fried in rice bran oil, garnished with curry leaves, and served with a side of cooling raitha made of yogurt, cucumber, carrots, cilantro, cumin, and salt.—Cristina Olds

Douglas Fryer, Callander, Scotland on the Eas Gobhain, oil on panel, 20 x 30”

Born and educated in Utah, artist Douglas Fryer has lived in many different places in the United States, including rural Vermont, Connecticut, and New York City, where he taught fine art and illustration at the Fashion Institute of Technology. A classically representational artist who works mostly in oils, Fryer also creates work in watercolor, is a printmaker, and works in digital media. Moody, representational landscapes of quiet countrysides figure prominently in his work, though he also paints still lifes. In his artist statement, he writes, “I create images that become material records of places, things and people that have been significant to me. Often, as I paint them they become significant to me in a different way: aesthetically, conceptually, and spiritually. There is a state of existence that lies between one’s physical and spiritual state, the present and the past, the reality and the symbol or impression. It is while I am in this frame of mind that life and the world seem the most clear and meaningful. It is to this state that I desire to return, and painting is one of the avenues through which I can regain and expand those feelings.”—Carolyn Patten Douglas Fryer, Meyer Gallery, 225 Canyon,, September 11-18 September 17, 2015 NOW 21

Santa Fe-born sculptor/ceramicist Jarrett West scored his first fine art recognition with a leaded glass piece that was accepted into the Santa Fe Festival of the Arts when he was just fourteen. After graduating from high school in Boise, Idaho, he spent time in apprenticeships with Santa Fe potters Mary Ann Gerber, Robert Brodsky, and Peter Dougan, and soon began showing his highfired, functional ceramics and small sculptures at the Santa Fe gallery La Mesa. Throughout his career he has worked as a builder, designing and building homes and studios of adobe, straw-bale and stone, and has used the knowledge to “combine architectural scale with ceramic skills and experience.” Some of his most recent sculptures are as tall as 10 feet, using as much as 1,000 pounds of clay. In his artist’s statement, West says, “This stage is all physical; no assistants, no machines, just bare feet and a good breakfast. … From a 10-foot outdoor sculpture to a functional teapot, the ceramic process involves a spirit of care tempered with strength.”— CP

"My forms are inspired by the observation and appreciation of the indigenous stone hammers found throughout the American Southwest. Simplicity of shape with a slight suggestion of the human touch resonate within my work."


Jarrett West

“… just bare feet and a good breakfast.”

"The abstract minimal high fired ceramic sculptures that I am currently producing are all constructed from a locally blended stoneware clay body capable of withstanding the various requirements of exterior installations. Because of a process called quartz inversion, the sculptures will endure the effects of snow, freeze/thaw, wind, hail, rain, and extreme sunlight UV exposure."






Ventana Fine Art Sun l i t Sple n d or s howca se s a love of t h e count r ys ide from two ma ste r painte r s

Artists Mary Silverwood (1932-2011) and Barry McCuan shared a deep connection to the earth and a passion to express their most profound feelings through their paintings. Ventana Fine Art’s show Sunlit Splendor, highlights landscapes created by these two masterful painters. Favorite scenes in England and France are part of the mostly plein air body of work exhibited by McCuan, who has called northern New Mexico home for decades. He frequently spends months at a time in Europe, visiting the places closest to his heart and finding new spots to treasure. The show includes McCuan’s impressions of areas in England around Yorkshire, Kent, and Lincolnshire, and the Provence region of France; as well as works inspired by the Rio Chama and Abiquiu. “My style of painting comes out of the act of doing it,” he explains. “I modify my palette for different parts of the world.” Also on display are the last seven paintings in Silverwood’s Chaco Canyon series and seven of her landscapes that have never previously been exhibited.

A resident of Northern California for many years, Silverwood began photographing New Mexico in 1980, using the images to serve as the starting point for pastel paintings she completed in her Sonoma studio. In 2000 she moved to the Land of Enchantment and continued to paint the places she loved best until her death in 2011. “Her field of luscious color, compositions pared to essence, and deep feeling for subject and medium have made every Silverwood painting a visual and emotional experience to treasure,” says Ventana Fine Art’s consultant Wolfgang Mabry.

Jim Alford


working fast to catch the sky “My primary goal as an artist is to create something no one has ever seen before,” says artist Jim Alford. “I don’t always achieve that, but it remains a goal.” Working with airbrush as his primary medium, Alford also creates works in watercolor, photography, collage, and video from his home studio outside of Santa Fe. After living in Oakland, California, he sought a place that offered country life with a quality art scene, discovered Santa Fe in 1989, and has remained here ever since. Capturing artistic representations of the iconic New Mexico sky during this turbulent monsoon season is a particularly pressing pastime for Alford. “This time of the year I think of myself as The Catcher in Sky,” Alford says. “I feel responsible to catch every meaningful sky that goes over my head.” He says he designs his images on the computer using Photoshop, and then physically paints the scene. Alford’s work is part of public and private art collections across the United States, and locally he is represented by Patricia Carlisle Fine Art. —Cristina Olds

Alford is a member of the NASA Art Team and two of his paintings are part of their permanent collection. “I learned from Franz Kline to favor compositions of equal positive shape and negative space,” Alford says.


“My whole house is my studio,” says Alford. “I paint in one of the bedrooms.”



T Barny and Peter Burega, Hunter Kirkland Contemporary PREVIEWS 200-B Canyon, September 18–October 12, Reception, September 18, 5–7 pm California-based T Barny uses power tools, stone and bronze to create sleek, geometrically precise sculptures ranging in size from exquisite foot-high pieces to majestic 12-foot sculptures that demand outside light and space. His sculptures use bronze, wood, steel, stone, and even water, and are collected in 80 countries. In describing the process he has honed over more than 35 years, Barny writes, “I import personally selected marble from quarries all over the world. Then I attain an affinity with the blocks by listening to their rhythms rather than imposing my own. I carve out the flaws of geological tension to release a sound–free form inherent in that specific stone.” Peter Burega’s airy, ethereal abstracts depict landscapes infused with saturated color and wispy motion, yielding a sophisticated take on the life of clouds, mesas and wildscapes. Burega’s technique, developed after considerable experimentation and refinement, employs trowels, palette knives, and scrapers to build multiple layers, giving each painting a soft, burnished effect and allowing him to build dimension. A former attorney, the self-taught Burega has studios in Rancho Mirage and Santa Fe.—Carolyn Patten

Contemporary Book Arts Exhibit State Capitol Rotunda Gallery, 490 Old Santa Fe Trl,, Through December 11, Reception September 18, 4–6 pm A band of local book lovers and artists founded the Santa Fe Book Arts Group 15 years ago and have since dedicated themselves to promoting the fine art of making beautiful and unusual books. September kicks off the annual Santa Fe Book Art Celebration, three months of workshops, lectures, tours, demonstrations, sales, and exhibitions. At the center of the celebration is a collection of contemporary book art by 65 artist members of the BAG, on display at the Capitol Rotunda Gallery. Using multiple media, designs, and techniques, the artists’ work ranges from the spare and minimal to the highly decorative and sculptural. Dr. Cynthia Sanchez, executive director of the Capitol Art Foundation, was the curator and juror for the exhibition.—CP

Evelyne Boren, New Mexico Morada, oil on canvas, 16 x 20"

Evelyne Boren: Shadows in the Sun Acosta-Strong Fine Art, 640 Canyon,, reception September 18, 5–7 pm Working in a fresh, loose, impressionistic style, Boren begins with a watercolor en plein air, returns to the studio to make sketches and choose a limited color scheme, then takes out her palette knives and begins laying down oil in pure colors, building layers as she goes. The process is somewhat the same with her watercolors, and lately she has switched out brushes for palette knives in that medium as well. Describing her evolution as an artist in both mediums, she writes, “Over the years my watercolor paintings have become stronger, and my oil paintings have become looser—an exhilarating feeling!” Born in Germany, Boren went to school in Switzerland and England before moving to the United States and embarking on a successful career as a movie stuntwoman. She began painting while on location in the Bahamas and has since built an international reputation and following.—CP September 17, 2015 NOW 25

A new troupe of 12 dancers will bring Twyla Tharpe's newly choreographed works to life at The Lensic Performing Arts Center on September 22

ruven afanador


“Her imagination is limitless,” says dancer Nick Coppula of iconic American choreographer Twyla Tharp, whose 50th anniversary tour comes to the The Lensic Performing Arts Center on September 22. The 10-week anniversary tour features a new troupe of 12 dancers—among them real-life couple Nick Coppula and Eva Trapp, former corps de ballet and soloist, respectively, of the Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre. “Classical ballet training gives you a strong technical basis—and she demands a high technical level—but there are no rules when it comes to her choreography. You have to be ready to go and to handle all she throws at you,” Coppula says of the award-winning choreographer. Tharp has choreographed more than 160 works, 129 dances, 12 television specials, 6 Hollywood movies, 4 full-length ballets (including Deuce Coupe, set to The Beach Boys music and performed by the Joffrey Ballet—considered the first crossover ballet), and 4 Broadway shows, including Movin’ Out. She has received one Tony Award, two Emmy Awards, and a National Medal of the Arts; and was a 2008 Kennedy Center honoree. Trapp observes that when Tharp began her career, founding Twyla Tharp Dance in 1965, the choreographer worked exclusively with women. Tharp continues to prescribe strong movement for the female dancers. “Her work makes me feel free. To be able to dance with power and strength, while still being a woman, it’s freeing. It’s my favorite work of my entire career,” Trapp says. A font of creativity, Tharp brings newly choreographed pieces to this anniversary tour, including Yowzie, featuring music by Henry Butler and Steve Bernstein. The dancers contrast this piece with another on the tour, Preludes and Fugues, a previously performed work set to music by J.S. Bach. “In Preludes and Fugues, the sections are like building blocks. It’s precise, but as a dancer you can get into a groove—like a machine,” Coppula observes. “In Yowzie there’s a controlled chaos and you can really let go. …Twyla says Yowzie is the way the world is and Preludes and Fugues is the way the world ought to be.” 26

Rio Bravo Trading Company [on the market]

1145 South Summit Ridge Vintage oak hardwood floors add warmth and elegance to this four-bedroom, five-bathroom, energy-efficient luxury home. Built by Bob Di Janni Custom Homes in 2012, the home earned a gold rating from Build Green Santa Fe. It has a stellar view of the city and surrounding mountains and is just a few minutes’ drive from downtown. Cooking and entertaining in the gourmet kitchen, which has top-of-the-line appliances including a Thermador range, oven, refrigerator, and dishwasher, is pure pleasure around the large central island. Enjoy a glass of wine on the covered portal, which overlooks a beautifully manicured lawn with mature trees and flowering plants. The property has an 8,000-gallon storm water harvesting system and a six-zone irrigation system.

“I’m too lazy to work and too honest to steal, so this is what I do,” says Randy Rodriguez, owner of Rio Bravo Trading Company for the past 29 years. Specializing in all things “cowboys and Indians,” Rodriguez’s shop carries spurs, saddles, chaps, textiles, pottery, and more. “I have a weakness for New Mexico furniture,” he adds. Raised in the Santa Fe area on a ranch, Rodriguez said he loves the relationships he has with buyers, sellers, and especially with the Native American artists. “Santa Fe is the bull’s eye for Native American art,” he says. “If you can’t find it in Santa Fe, they never made it.” Rodriguez found the painted metal Indian chief sign with light bulbs adorning the headdress (below, right) in Texas. “It may be going to live in Los Angeles—a fellow just looked at it yesterday,” he says. His authentic “character hats” (below) that “look like the cowboy just walked off the trail” have been purchased for movies including The Ridiculous Six, which was recently filming in Santa Fe. “If I can’t buy the hat already beat up and looking bad,” he says, “I have the potion to make that look.” He currently owns an 80-acre ranch with three horses, one longhorn named Fernando, and several dogs and cats. —Cristina Olds

Americana. “I couldn’t understand how or why such beautiful items could be discarded like that,” he says. As a freshman at Santa Cruz High School, Martinez took a shop class that set him on his woodworking path. He went on to study fine arts at Eastern New Mexico University and spent his summers helping his brother make cabinets. Later, as a machinist and designer in weapons and laser research at Los Alamos National Laboratory, he “acquired a huge knowledge of technology which I also applied to art and woodworking.” Since first entering Spanish Market in 1992, Martinez has collected several awards and followed other artistic pursuits, including photography, sculpture, and music. But recreating the old Spanish Colonial art pieces remains his primary passion. “I’m a one-man show,” Martinez says. “I’ve never mass produced. Each piece is unique. And I do it all, from selecting the wood to the final staining and finishing. It is very time-consuming, but like all art, the reward of knowing that you’ve finally accomplished what you want makes it worthwhile.”—Ben Ikenson



So authentic are Anthony Martinez’s Spanish Colonial furniture reproductions that the woodworker stamps dates on them so they’re not confused with the real thing. His skills and keen eye for detail are evident in the chests, trasteros, and bancos that grace his Santa Fe gallery, next door to his Piñon Street studio. “I’ve spent a great deal of time studying original period pieces in museums and I’ve come up with a technique that really gets that antiquated look down,” he says. Martinez’s passion for Spanish Colonial furniture began in his 1950s Northern New Mexico childhood. He remembers being awestruck by the antique furnishings in his grandfather’s house, and that his neighbors chopped similar items into firewood or tossed them by the side of the road in favor of the “chrome, plastic, and vinyl” furnishings associated with Route 66

Show Time! Santa Feans love our horses and our horse shows; and in the past few years, we’ve missed the equestrian scene, which sported some of the world’s best hunter/jumper contests. In late summer of this year, however, the nonprofit Grand Prix de Santa Fe partnered with Hípico to put on the first season of the Santa Fe Summer Series—three weeks of A-rated action— at a newly renovated equestrian center just south of town. Admission to all events was free and spectators had their choice of dining in luxury in the Hípico Lounge or choosing a vantage point from the grass and picking up food and drink from the elegant beer garden. Plans for the winter months include more renovations, new arenas and—stay tuned—perhaps more special events in the indoor arena.­—Carolyn Patten
