Are Men Strong Enough to Compete with Women in Hollywood?

Lucky attendees enjoyed a fascinating evening hearing prominent locals in the film community engage in a provocative exchange of ideas concerning the status of women in the film and television industry. The topic of the lack of gender equity in film and and television is timely given current discussions in the media about gender disparity in both opportunity and pay.

Eric Witt, Executive Director of the Santa Fe Film Office, introduced our panel of local luminaries: Janet Davidson, Director and Panel Moderator; Lisa Lucas, Producer; Kirk Ellis, Writer; and Debrianna Mansini, Actor and Writer. Many thanks to each of our speakers and to NMC supporters who attended.

"Last night's topic was engaging and enlightening. Thank you for hosting such a professional panel in a timely, fact-filled event." Judy C.

An Artful Afternoon with Women Curators on Museum Hill

A small group of lucky NMC members enjoyed three very special curator-led tours of two exhibitions at the Museum of International Folk Art -- one that has been launched, and the other that is in process -- plus a special curator-led “behind the scenes” visit to the Museum’s collections storage area.

Three incredibly knowledgeable and interesting curators -- Felicia Katz-Harris (shown at right), Laura Addison, and Carrie Hertz -- shared their experiences and challenges in bringing these exhibits to life and allowed us a peek behind the scenes into the Museum's textile vaults. Our thanks to the Museum of International Folk Art and to these three women for such a wonderful afternoon!

"Really enjoyed this. Getting the history and thinking behind how the show is hung is so important towards understanding the art." Rita M.

"The Museum event was fabulous! It was such fun to have three completely different presentations--an existing exhibit, an exhibit in the staging process, and a collection. Thank you to you and your colleagues for providing such an educational experience." Edelma H.

An Artful Afternoon with Sheryl Zacharia

Tansey Contemporary's solo exhibitor Sheryl Zacharia treated us to an absolutely delightful recounting of her background in NYC, how she became an artist, and how the "joy of the process" shines through in every one of her amazing ceramic pieces. As Sheryl talked about her aesthetic, we were able to see each piece "up close" and appreciate anew the wonder and color we saw. It was a lovely, intimate setting. Many thanks to Tansey Contemporary Gallery for hosting us!

An Artful Outing to Taos

A merry band of art lovers caravanned up to Taos on a gorgeous afternoon! Our private tour of Mabel Dodge Luhan & Company: American Moderns and the West was guided by Dr. Lois Rudnick, co-curator and historian for the exhibit. Lois treated us to a lively and engaging "insider's view" of all things Mabel Dodge -- her travels, her lovers, her unique role as a "cultural entrepreneur." We also learned fascinating behind-the-scenes details about how the exhibit came to be, which was clearly a decades-long labor of love for Lois and her co-curator, MaLin Wilson-Powell. After the tour, we feasted on a delicious lunch at Lambert's of Taos. Truly a memorable "artful outing"!

"Absolutely DAZZLING day (and a date with my wife to boot!). Thanks so much for putting together such a terrific event!" David L.
