Received our first copy just yesterday. Santa Fean has always been a favorite of ours and the new vibe is terrific! Among others, we enjoyed the feature on Percy Stith's hats, as well as Mix Master, Flavor of the Town and Pet Corner (especially). A thought: virtually every woman featured in the entire magazine has a "Georgia O'Keefe brunette "look (tall, willowy with beautiful shoulder length hair & ready for a modeling shoot), Gee, are those the only women fit to represent Santa Fe? It seems as if every Southwest publication features this "preferred"feminine look. How about some variety of race, build, hair color, curves height, etc.?
Re: Santa Fe Meets Modern: why is it that modern western designers are so colorphobic? I get that traditional Santa Fe/Southwestern style has been overdone, but the recent embrace of "beige tastefully contrasted with hints of ecru and taupe" exudes the ambience of a well appointed optometrist's waiting room.
Debra and Paul have every right to be thrilled with their remodel- but PLEASE let's not embrace this as a huge new trend. We'll all freeze to death.
Still, we very much like the new look of Santa Fean.

If we had a subscription to the Santa Fean previously that was never completed. Are we gonna have to get a brand new? Or be notified by snail mail ,should we want to continue to receive it.
when is a new issue if any , coming out.🙂
I subscribed in August, 2019...it is now January 31, 2020...I still have not received a single issue of Santa Fean Magazine....
Does anyone know anything about this piece of Artwork by J Sandoval 1985 ?
Will we be getting our money back issues that we paid for & never received?
Thank you!
Jon Stewart has gone vegan and this film will wake you up too. If you can't attend the local screening of The Game Changers​ (see events), then you have two other options, watch it on NETFLIX or on another platform through GameChangersMovie.Com.
If you missed the theater screening of "The Game Changers" here in Santa Fe, you still have an opportunity to see it!
A must see documentary! Over 200 saw it in Santa Fe at the theater.

ENJOY A LITTLE ART WITH DINNER
Santa Fe Restaurants Boast Murals by Luminaries
By Emily Van Cleve


Tomasita’s, a restaurant in the Santa Fe Railyard that serves popular Northern New Mexican dishes, has been a mainstay in town since its founding by Georgia Maryol in 1974. Locals and out-of-town visitors who stop by for a burrito or enchilada can’t help but notice colorful murals in the restaurant’s lobby and dining room. Art and dinner go hand in hand at this well-known lunch and dinner eatery.
A surprising number of murals can be found in restaurants throughout town. The stories of how two restaurants, Tomasita’s and El Farol, came by theirs are as fascinating as the artworks themselves.
Santa Fe painter William Vincent (1939-2004) created the murals at Tomasita’s. Born in Florida, he studied art with Alfred Morang (1901-1958) after he moved to Santa Fe in the 1950s. He loved painting landscapes, as is evident from viewing the murals in the restaurant.
“He was my mom’s boyfriend,” explains George Gundrey, Georgia Maryol’s son and the current owner of Tomasita’s. “They were together for twelve years. I doubt he was paid anything to create the murals. I think he just did them.”
Two smaller landscape murals by Vincent also can be seen at El Farol, a Canyon Road restaurant that has been serving traditional Spanish tapas since 1835. They adorn the restaurant’s tapas room. Restaurant manager Monica Walsh says Vincent painted a number of murals in El Farol, adding, “I think he did the murals in the tapas room as a tribute to his teacher [Alfred Morang].”
Morang, who was born in Maine and moved to New Mexico in 1938, was a well-respected American painter, author and art critic who co-founded the Transcendental Painting Group with several notable artists of his day. His studio, which burned down in 1958 with him in it, was on Canyon Road, close to El Farol.
“The story is that Morang painted the murals in El Farol to pay his bar tabs,” says Walsh. “The other murals in the restaurant have been done by artists paying homage to him.”
The most noticeable mural in El Farol — a very large work of flamenco dancers and musicians — was created on a wall in the flamenco room by Santa Fe artist Sergio Moyano. Born in Argentina in 1934, Moyano initially studied art there but later traveled around world to live and continue his studies.
Other murals at El Farol were done by Stan Natchez (Shoshone/Paiute), who is known for paintings inspired by Andy Warhol, Jasper Johns and other pop artists. El Farol’s walls also feature work by Roland van Loon who, according to the artist’s website, first experienced live flamenco when he attended a performance at El Farol. His paintings capture the excitement and intensity of the dance through his use of vivid colors.
While diners El Farol will see murals by a number of artists, the lunch and dinner guests at Plaza Cafe Southside, which is in San Isidro Plaza on the southside of town, will see work by only one artist, Robb Rael.
Rael, who works as a picture framer as well as a fine artist, was asked to paint a large mural above the restaurant’s bar area in 2009 when the eatery opened its southside location. “The owner [Leonardo Razatos] saw my work in a display at the Albuquerque Sunport and called me to see if I could create a mural for his new restaurant in a week and a half,” says Rael. “I was doing picture framing full-time, so I had to come to the restaurant at five p.m. and work there until two a.m. for six nights straight to get it done.”
Rael was given free rein when it came to what he painted. He made some sketches of scenes of New Mexico’s four seasons and thought he would use them as the basis for the mural, but when he started painting, the images in the sketches just didn’t seem right. “They didn’t speak to me, so I picked up my brush and just started painting whatever came into my mind,” says Rael. “Mr. Razatos often sat at a table quietly and watched me work.”
Two years later, Razatos asked Real to paint two additional murals above the bar. These painting sessions took place while customers were eating dinner. All of the murals feature images of Santa Fe churches, people, cacti, mountains and more. Some may wonder if Real was thinking of the Day of the Dead when he painted faces that look like those of skeletons, but it’s just Rael’s style.
“Having these big murals in Plaza Cafe Southside is like having my own museum at a restaurant,” Real says.

People, Places, Things > FILL ’ER UP—WITH NEW OCCUPANTS!

Long-Ago Filling Stations Get New Leases on Life

If you’ve ever wondered about the curious architecture of some present-day downtown establishments, it may well be because they were once “filling stations.” If you were around in the 1940s or ’50s, you probably remember trips to the filling station and hearing the familiar ding-ding when the tires rolled over the black rubber hose that signaled a customer’s arrival. Friendly attendants appeared instantly to greet you. While one attendant filled the car, another cleaned the windshield, checked the oil level with the dipstick and measured the air pressure in each tire. They looked smart in their caps and uniforms, which had the oil company logo and their first name stitched in cursive on the top left side of their shirt front.

Until these full-service gas stations began to disappear in the 1970s, such stations abounded in downtown Santa Fe. All things change, including the occupants and uses of those long-ago stations, all situated on what have become prime locations.

We are working on this story for you.

Below: One once-gas-station-now-restaurants-or-bars include Del Charro Saloon, whose entrance is set on the diagonal at the corner of W. Alameda at Don Gaspar.
