Dia de Los Muertos School Project

This Dia de Los Muertos project was done in partnership with New Mexicans to Prevent Gun Violence (NMPGV) and Student Wellness Action Teams (SWAT) from the Santa Fe Public schools as part of the annual Student Pledge Against Gun Violence. NMPGV worked with the students during the month of October. The first class was a conversation about the issue of gun violence in New Mexico. The idea behind the altars was to create a space where we can honor and remember children killed in the past two years in New Mexico. The project offered a positive approach through art to bring attention to an issue that has become divisive in the United States. In addition, it offered the students the opportunity to create an art project that celebrates multiculturalism, diversity, and sociopolitical issues.

For information call Miranda Viscoli at (323) 394-1131.

Ms. Susana Ferguson was the sole female student studying under Frida Kahlo in the all male class group in the mid 1940s "in the house with the blue door" ... "where [we] dug in her garden" and "played with her monkeys." ... "She did love! Diego so. She waited for him each morning to have breakfast together".

We shall install paintings, drawings, letters, photographs by Ms. Susana along with works by other artists in that period. Her daughter Catherine shall create an exhibit of her own work in an adjacent gallery here to coincide.

Ms. Susana lived in Tesuque and painted into her mid 90s with her artist daughter.

We should care to share this intimate parenthesis with you, our community.

Mark Rendleman Artist's Reception

Mark Rendleman grew up in Santa Fe surrounded by art and artists, and where Art and Art History were part of the regular school curriculum. After graduating from NMMI, he went on to get degrees from the University of Washington and an MFA from the University of California at Santa Barbara where he was an art instructor. He later taught at San Diego State University and Middlebury College in Vermont. He received numerous awards and had many exhibits, mostly in New York and California during the 1970's and 80's.

Mark was considered to be one of the early photo realists and was selected by Ivan Karp for shows at OK Harris and La Magna Galleries in Soho, NYC. But Mark's interests were not in the reality of photographs, but were more related to his studies in Perceptual Psychology and how we see and understand what we see. His studies have branched out into Film, Sculpture, Performance, Construction and Religion.

This show is a retrospective of selections from his various series and steps in his investigations in painting.
