The beauty of the natural world lies in the details
When Canyon Road emerged as Santa Fe’s gallery district in the 1960s and 1970s, many of galleries promoted the innovative work of a new generation of artists who saw their surroundings in fresh, new ways and expressed their vision with new aesthetic ideas and techniques. Today, Canyon Road galleries represent nearly every facet of the art scene in America, and Giacobbe-Fritz Fine Art exhibits eclectic, warm, fresh artists, often with a folky sensibility, particularly embracing color and texture. They delight in portraying the world we share.
This late-1890s adobe building houses a truly diverse collection of paintings, drawings, and sculpture, much of it with a regional and traditional approach, including impressionist New Mexico landscapes, a variety of paintings, sculpture and graphics, and whimsical bronze sculptures of burros, bats, and other animals by outstanding emerging and established artists.
Art star Nocoma Burgess is here, obviously loving colorful contrast and historical imagery. His statement is bold, proud, and direct. Craig Blietz’ representational reflections of his rural environment and all the things within this that intrigue him are here a Giacobbe-Fritz Fine Art. His portraits of cattle are classically obvious and beyond beautiful – indeed, they are soulful. You will never look at them the same way. Copper Tritscheller is focused on the “misunderstood animal,” (rats! bats!) and her bronze sculptures open windows in the mind and calm neurosis.
Giacobbe-Fritz Fine Art is classical by nature, but edgy by design. What results is a paradoxical reverence for art with playful earthiness, and sometimes acidic commentary. No stranger to the art life, owner/director Deborah Fritz also boasts GF Contemporary across the street, where she focuses more on modern and abstract works.

No, not that kind of “fetish.” In the Zuni Native American culture, this means a found rock or pebble that resembles an animal, carved to enhance the image and imbued with a spiritual power or “medicine.” These talismans have been a part of Pueblo culture for more than a thousand years and serve as empowering reminders of the human connection to nature and to the qualities the animal reflects, such as agility, perseverance, independence and survival. For instance, mountain lion medicine reminds us to establish healthy boundaries and to be a good example to others. A bear – a sacred fetish for the Zuni tribe – represents healing, protection, strength and mothering.
Keshi (pronounced kay-SHE) is the traditional greeting of the Zuni. Keshi, The Zuni Connection hosts the largest selection of authentic Zuni fetishes in the world, as well as a stunning inventory of a variety of art, pottery and jewelry. This fair trade outlet, originally established as a co-op in 1981, proudly represents the work of more than 1000 Native American artists, 95 percent of whom are Zuni.
The Zuni Tribe is distinct in many ways. The Zuni Pueblo is the largest in New Mexico, yet its people’s native tongue is unique among the languages of the world. Despite the challenges of wars, invasions and outside religious influences, the Zuni have remained undaunted in their devotion to their cultural and religious traditions. Of all the Native American tribes, the Zuni are the most widely known for their outstanding quality and craftsmanship of fetish art. Though some fetishes may be as small as a dime, they are beautifully crafted from rocks and gems, many intricately inlaid with delicate designs. Whether large or small, each carries with it a special meaning, which makes them a genuine artifact of your New Mexico journey and an ideal gift. “Petit point” jewelry is another renowned Zuni art and Keshi offers an exquisite assortment for collectors.
For fans of famed comedian and comic strip artist Ricardo Lee Cate of the Kewa tribe who is well known for his cartoon comic strip in the Santa Fe New Mexican, “Without Reservations,” Keshi showcases an assortment of original paintings. Cate’s humor is slightly twisted yet thought-provoking, always g-rated and always makes you laugh out loud with his reflections of Indian life in the modern world.
Keshi originated in 1981 with the collaboration of Robin Dunlap, then a school teacher on the Zuni Pueblo, and a small group of Zuni artists and other teachers to showcase outside the reservation the esteemed work of Zuni artists. Robin’s daughter, Bronwyn Fox-Bern, maintaining the bridge between the Zuni Tribe and the rest of the world. She attended the Zuni school where her mother taught, later completed her degree in American Cultural Studies and is now managing director at Keshi. The 800-square-foot store stands on Don Gaspar Street, in the heart of historic Santa Fe, just two blocks from the plaza. The extensive displays, coupled with the knowledgeable, friendly staff, make Keshi a place that offers you a sense of authentic connection and closeness to a deeply rooted spiritual culture and artistic heritage. Keshi, the Zuni Connection, is a must for those hoping to take home a piece of the true soul of the Southwest.
Keshi, The Zuni Connection, is open 7 days a week, Monday to Saturday 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. and Sunday 11a.m. – 5p.m. at 227 Don Gaspar. For more information and on-line shopping, visit their website. Call Keshi at (505) 989 8728. Elah-kwa (thank you).

H12 is a global collection of art and lifestyle hotels, that was created with the idea of putting “a bed into an art gallery”. H12 works with a concept story of 12 local and international artists for each of its iconic properties to create a “Glocal” atmosphere and a stimulating experience. The number 12 also represents the hours of the day and night, months in the year and the eastern and western zodiac signs. The “H” in H12 stands for the passionate heart of the hosts who make friends out of guests. We create happy, humble, hugging, healthy, humorous, homemade and hip experiences.
Walter Junger is the creator and CEO of this global Austrian hotel brand, and started the company in 2012 with the H12original on top of the Alps in the southern Austrian Province of Carinthia.
In 2014, the Chinese hotel group, Plateno Group, was looking to gain a foothold in the international arena. Alex Zheng, the co-chairman and founder of 7 Days Inn and Plateno was looking for visionary hotel projects. He came across the art and lifestyle hotel concept by Walter Junger and felt an instant affinity, following a joint venture between Walter Junger, Alex Zheng and Plateno Group was formed on 12.12.2014.
The joint venture company, H12 (HK) Ltd. was established, and its headquarter was set-up in Hong Kong. At the same time, regional offices were opened in Guangzhou, Shanghai, Berlin, Salzburg and Nairobi. Since then, nine management contracts and investment partnerships have been signed across four continents.
H12 stands for new luxury. No pompous marble lobbies and no crystal chandeliers unless hanging from a tree for a romantic dinner for two. The locations are remote and spectacular or urban and iconic. Walter’s motto says it all: “Put service first and success will follow”. The naked truth or more commonly known the company vision is for H12 to grow its portfolio to 30 unique art and lifestyle hotels. Iconic places, stimulating art and warm, relaxed yet efficient service making friends out of H12 guests. Offering locally grown tasty food, the brand’s own wines and cool music, creates a synergic mix of East and West.
H12 – Sleeping in an art gallery:
Picasso says: “There is the artist that makes a yellow spot out of the sun, but there is also the artist that creates the sun out of a yellow spot”.
H12 is an artistic hub that always features 12 main artists. Every hotel doubles as an art gallery, featuring various global and local artists. H12 also runs an “Artist in Residence” program. The guests have the opportunity to directly watch, communicate, and sometimes participate in the creative process. Discovering H12 leaves you speechless and then turns you into a storyteller.
Opened in 2012, H12original is located in Carinthia, Austria at 1750 meters above sea level, directly next to 63 kilometers of powdery ski slopes. From a Mountain Inn to a modern Work of Art:
... at the 12th road turning

The concept of WOCA is to create a space that goes beyond the commercial aspect of a traditional gallery. “My goal is to break with the traditional gallery model, by integrating institutional and educational components, as well as the publishing and archiving of items within the gallery. As part of its educational agenda, the gallery will host art lectures by specialists in painting, photography and conceptual art; in addition to producing catalogues written by renowned local and international critics. “Furthermore, we want to develop alliances and partnerships with schools and art institutions, encouraging and motivating the next generation of local artists. My goal is that the gallery will become a facilitator for young artists into the international market, as well as to keep developing my roster of established ones.” said Walter Otero. WOCA will continue positioning its artists in the international market by participating in art fairs and special projects.

Olu Amoda is an internationally celebrated Nigerian sculptor, muralist, furniture designer, and multi-media artist whose iconic work using repurposed materials and metal expresses the very best of modern African sensibility. Amoda was born in Warri in the Niger Delta in 1959 to his father, a goldsmith, with whom there seems to be evidence of some subtle interdependence of a ‘flaming’ strength drawn from the sole element of consanguinity apparent in the art of both father and son.
He graduated in sculpture from Auchi Polytechnic in 1983, and was awarded a Masters of Fine Arts from Georgia Southern University in the United States in 2009. He has worked as an Artist-in-Residence in Villa Arson in Nice, France (2000), the Bag Factory in Johannesburg, South Africa (2003), at the Appalachian Statue University, in Boone, North Carolina (2006) and at the New York Design Museum (2010).
His work is housed in local and international collections including with the New Ark Museum in New Jersey, USA.. He has exhibited around the world, including at the Skoto Gallery and at the Museum of Art & Design in New York, at the Georgia Southern University in the United States, at the Didi Museum, Alliance Francaise, Goethe Institute & the Nimbus Art Centre in Nigeria, at the 6th Biennale de L’Art African Contemporain in Dakar, Senegal, at The World Intellectual Property Organization [WIPO] Headquarters, in Geneva, Switzerland, and with the current touring exhibition of “out of the ordinary” organized by the Victoria and Albert Museum in the United Kingdom. He is Founder and Chief Executive of Riverside Art and Design Studios in Yaba, Lagos, and has taught Sculpture and Drawing at the School of Art, Design and Printing at Yaba College of Technology in Lagos since 1987.
