A letter from Sandy Zane

Creative Santa Fe- Disruptive Futures Dialogue Series- Zane Bennett Contemporary Art- Santa Fe New Mexico

I have been a board member of Creative Santa Fe for several years and I believe passionately in the mission of this organization. I want you to know about some very exciting new projects happening in 2018. In addition to addressing Santa Fe’s urgent affordable housing crisis with the Siler Yard Arts + Creativity Center, a low income, 60 unit, live-work space for artists, we are launching a new initiative called the Disruptive Futures Dialogues Series.

This series will be a year-long community engagement in partnership with organizations throughout the city and the region to envision the future of Santa Fe. We will focus on the key question: What do we want Santa Fe, and the world, to look like for Future Generations, and how do we get there from here?

Each dialogue will address a critical issue our city faces which also reflects global issues, including: affordable housing, job creation, the upcoming mayoral election, the environment, film & technology, nuclear weapons, and cyber connectivity. We recognize that progress can only be made by breaking down silos, bringing diverse voices to the conversation, and finding what connects rather than separates us. It is our goal that at the end of this year of engagements and dialogues that we will have a clear action plan to continue working on key initiatives and building ongoing partnerships to strengthen our economy and help build a sustainable future for our city.

Your interest and support is vital for Creative Santa Fe to become a leader in connecting our community, creating city-wide conversations, and effecting positive change throughout the city. We hope you will support Creative Santa Fe with a year-end gift to help us continue on our path to ensure that Santa Fe is a healthy, vibrant, and thriving city for generations to come.

To donate and/or to be on our mailing list, click here, mail a check to PO Box 2388 Santa Fe, New Mexico, 87504, or call Executive Director, Cyndi Conn at 505-288-3538.

Thank you in advance for your support and belief in Creative Santa Fe.

Wishing you the very best for the holidays and the new year,

Sandy Zane, Owner

Art in Monochrome.


“Black is a property, not a quality,” Richard Serra (b. 1938) said. “A black shape can hold its space and place in relation to a larger volume and alter the mass of that volume readily.” Even in his two-dimensional artworks, Serra wields black forms as though they possess literal mass and volume.

“In terms of weight, black is heavier, creates a larger volume, holds itself in a more compressed field. […] Since black is the densest color material, it absorbs and dissipates light to a maximum and thereby changes the artificial as well as the natural light in a given room.”


Vija Celmins
Spider Web
serigraph
10.88 x 13 in

“I did a whole series of black works—I don’t know now—twenty, thirty works. I thought it was quite difficult to make a black painting work because it has such an incredibly strong silhouette, you know? But it did a series of things. It invited you closer and closer to the work. I don’t know what I think about that yet, but I thought it was sort of an interesting phenomena that happened.”


Martin Puryear
Untitled LP 2
etching
17.87 x 23.75 in

“There is the potential for much more spontaneity with prints than there is with the sculpture, which tends to be very slow, accretive kind of process-labor intensive.”


Armond Lara
Bowl of Cherries
Graphite on paper
40.50 x 55 in

“I look for interesting shapes. I just start putting these things down on a piece of handmade paper, and then it’s a process of elimination to find a focal point for the piece. Then I find other things to add that make the central object out of context. What I want is surprise, surprise and strong composition, and to get that I need tension.”
