Muralist Gilberto Guzman has established his deserved place in history with a replica of his "Multicultural" mural on display at Vladem Contemporary, but little is known about his works on canvas which he also painted throughout his life. This month a retrospective of his work can be found on display in three locations throughout the city with an opening reception on September 29 at 5:30 pm at Edition ONE Gallery, and through October 31 at the Santa Fe Community Gallery, and El Museo Cultural.
Guzman's paintings resemble the style of the Mexican Masters and were undoubtedly influenced by the work of Diego Rivera; having lived in San Francisco and LA. His paintings depict the rich multicultural and agricultural experiences of growing up in East LA and his childhood home in Cucamonga, San Bernardino Valley.
Guzman says that his artistic passion was sparked when he was hired to clean a studio and encountered a painting. He was never offered art in school and couldn’t fathom this painting and how it had the ability to depict life as a 3D illusion!
From that time on he was driven to become an artist. He pursued art and after military service took courses and was accepted to the San Francisco Academy of Art.
He settled in Santa Fe in the 70s where he produced notable murals that still exist and worked quietly as an artist. He took dishwasher jobs to pay the bills, and when his work was done, he would build and paint canvases ultimately creating “The Guzman Paintings.”

Come to Edition ONE Gallery for an exclusive fundraising event.
We are supporting the GoFundMe campaign to support the filmmaking work and livelihood of Godfrey Reggio and his wife Marti. Over the last 40 years, Reggio’s films have mirrored the psyche of the modern world while revealing the beauty of the living world - Koyaanisqatsi, 1982, with a score by Philip Glass, exposed in a visceral way the effects of our culture on the world in image and music. The new film Once Within a Time, 2022, captures the current multiple crises in stunning visuals, accessing subconscious knowings. The new film is projected to come out in the Summer of 2023.
During his lifetime, he has focused on his art. His films have all been created within a not-for-profit documentary status. Godfrey has put their art over financial gain.
Godfrey's ongoing creativity rises in public speaking, writing, drawing, and mentoring. Currently, he needs support, especially at age 83, as he is in a somewhat fragile state.
Funds will be used for his daily living expenses to get through this period where there is no current funding.
We will be screening Koyaanisqatsi with an introduction by Godfrey himself. This extraordinary venue has 3100 sq. feet of open space all designed to create an experience that is uniquely Santa Fe to honor this long-time resident.

$10 - $50 Sliding Scale
Through hysterical comedy, storytelling, and original songs, Zappo Diddio reflects on his path to healing through loving kindness and service toward young people in crisis. Forgiveness and reconciliation are recurring themes as he makes efforts to reconnect with his dad and leans into his paternal Jewish ancestry. Exploring how life’s challenges call us into the healing of mind, body, emotion, and spirit, Zappo stumbles through the gauntlet of recovering health and his once joyful life after 12 years of ongoing negotiation with Lymes disease. Like life itself, this performance leads to deep meaning as it moves along a roller coaster of hilarious, heart-opening storytelling.
We've been busy making some big changes at Edition ONE. This year I had the opportunity to move into an extraordinary new gallery space on Canyon Road, across the street from our beloved location at the historic Irene Von Horvath House. That move has afforded the space to expand the gallery's offerings and host some fabulous events.
Please join us to celebrate with Jan Butchofsky, David Michael Kennedy and Kisa Kavass. We'll have appetizers, a bar and DJ Waefunky will be spinning - time to gather together!

Edition ONE Gallery is honored to host Memphis Barbree as an Artist in Residence for the month of January, 2019. Barbree is a landscape and documentary photographer, traveler, and explorer who photographs the interplay of life’s essential elements and natural forces - earth, sky, wind, water, fire, light and time. Memphis’ life experiences have given her a deep sense of unity with these forces. Her landscape images express the power, beauty and mysteries she finds as she journeys in communion with the world around her. Her training as a writer and background as a newspaper reporter draw her to also explore and document places and events of significance in the journey of humanity.
Memphis honed her craft of the fine print by spending over a decade studying under and assisting distinguished photographer George DeWolfe - a student of Ansel Adams and Minor White. Her archival pigment and platinum prints are highly regarded for their clarity and quality and collected privately and publicly.
Help us celebrate 3 years in business! We'll be open for business during the Canyon Road Block Party from 4-7pm and then transform into a Disco Dance Club from 7-9pm. Bust out the satin, spandex, platforms, and legwarmers and boogie!

Edition ONE is delighted to invite our long-time friend, world-class folk-artist and raconteur, Ed Larson, for a one-man show in a gallery with even more history than his former stables up the road.
For two, glorious, probably cold, definitely colorful, months we will be showing Wonderful Ed’s Western Art and Whimsical Sculptures. Come inside to see Ed’s art, share some hot cider or cocoa, sit with Ed by a cracklin’ fire, and hear stories of the fascinating characters that have come through Ed’s 87 years of life - 30 of them spent here in Santa Fe, 20 of those 30 on Canyon Road. As part of the Santa Fe Artists in Residence you can catch Ed working in studio every Thursday, Friday and Saturday evening from 4-7pm.
