My recent trip to Santa Fe was full of great food, museums and galleries tours, and even a visit to the Santa Fe Botanical Garden.
Galleries buzzed with anticipation as owners prepared for the upcoming crowd’s from Indian Market. Here’s are a couple of pieces, which stuck out to me as I walked along Canyon Road.
Painting by Eric Zener
At Turner Carroll Gallery, the gold leaf Eric Zener used in this painting captured my attention. I remember seeing his work in April at The Dallas Art Fair. His process and use of materials: photography, resin, and paint create depth, create a fascinating composition.
Tropical Depression by Theresa Girard
36" x 36" acrylic on canvas
I was also drawn to the colors and composition in Theresa Girard work at the William & Joseph Gallery.
The food was amazing… One restaurant in particular, Vinaigrette, is an excellent lunch destination. Owner, Erin Wade has truly redefined the salad in the most organic and creative way. Pairing ingredients to create a healthy and delicious lunch as most of the produce is grown at her 10-acre farm in Nambe. Here is a shot of the Santa Fe location.
And finally the Georgia O’Keeffe museum. Ah... We listened to a maybe the BEST docent speak of O’Keeffe’s work and life. She truly understood her deeply. Seen here, materials from O’Keeffe’s studio at the Ghost Ranch in Abique. On my next visit, I hope to visit Ghost Ranch.
