Opening Reception: Friday, January 11, 2019 | 4 - 7pm
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 728 Canyon Road (behind Geronimo)
Admission ( to benefit the film's Oscar campaign) pay what you wish.
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.
Please join us Tuesday, September 25th 6:00- 7:30pm for a fascinating discussion on the evolution of style, presented by ASMP NM professional photographer, Mark Berndt. Mark will talk about the stages of development in a photographer’s style using examples from his work in commercial documentary photography. He will speak simultaneously to the importance of creative development and imprinting commercial work with your own personal vision.
Mark Berndt is a self-taught photographer, film director and digital printmaker whose work celebrates people and the circumstance of life. His communication skills, acquired from 40+ years in film, photography and advertising, inform and infuse his photography.
Primarily a portraitist, Mark’s work celebrates people where they live and work, and his documentary-style narrative images capture life in the moment – the instance and the substance of human interaction.
A former faculty member at Art Center College of Design (Pasadena, CA), the Kansas City Art Institute and the Julia Dean Photo Workshops (Los Angeles), he currently teaches photography and digital imaging in private workshops and one-on-one consultation.
Mark’s professional affiliations include having served on the Board of Directors of ASMP‘s (American Society of Media Professionals) Los Angeles chapter, as a board member and President of ASMP’s KC-Midwest Chapter, and on the board of KC Society for Contemporary Photography. He has been a director member of the DGA (Director’s Guild of America) since 1987.
We are thrilled to be working with Annie O'Carroll Interior Design to showcase 7 photographers in The Parade of Homes. Above is Patti Bose's 'Rodeo No. 11'. Join the fun starting this Friday, August 11th. (P.S.) If you love this print - it's 30' x 45" mounted on aluminum Dibond in an edition of 10 - and can tell us in which house it's located, we will give you 10% off the print price.

For more than 40 years, Susan Ressler has been photographing affluence in America -- in particular, the power relations that inhere in corporate and consumer culture. In Executive Order (Daylight, April 2018), Ressler invites us to examine the executive boardrooms, private offices, and lobbies of businesses that became especially prominent during the 1970s in downtown Los Angeles and other urban environments in the Mountain West. Ressler's images provide a fascinating critique of corporate America during this period of explosive growth when profits were increasingly preempting people. Her work, which has an undercurrent of cool detachment coupled with a dose of irony, combines images devoid of people allowing us to see the hollowness of these modern work spaces, with portraits of employees playing the typical roles assigned to them in the new American economy.
The images in Executive Order preceded and were then a part of a ground-breaking 1979-80 National Endowment for the Arts sponsored survey entitled the Los Angeles Documentary Project, intended to document life in Los Angeles during its Bicentennial. Ressler was among eight noted photographers chosen to participate, and her contribution is now recognized as an epochal and historically important record of the growth of corporate America which still resonates today. The middle section of Executive Order presents twelve images from the NEA project (from a portfolio of fifteen) which Ressler describes as among the most sterile and isolating pictures in the series.
Unlike many of the other photographers of the 1970s who primarily photographed outdoors, Ressler brought the "New Topographics" aesthetic inside these soulless, claustrophobic business suites. There, she found signifiers of the new American economy at every turn - symbols of class, gender and racial hierarchies. Her 35mm camera zeroes in on the wall hangings, furniture styles and various totems of success that surround the rich and powerful. -Daylight Books
Lucky us! In December of 2017 we moved and became caretakers of the beautiful and historic Irene von Horvath home in the Heart of Canyon Road. We are collaborating with Teresa Neptune of Neptune Studio and The Old Santa Fe Association (OSFA) to share the space through art exhibitions and small events. The 200+ year old house is worth a visit in itself! Double adobe brick walls, original wood floors and vigas, hand hewn doors and fixtures, and the secret (largest) garden on Canyon Road make it a very special experience of 'the old days' in Santa Fe.
We officially re-open on April 6th but you are welcome to call us at 505 570-5385 to make an appointment to stop by. We are currently showing a selection of works from exhibitions Disappearing World and Hail, Hail Rock-n-Roll and Teresa Neptune.
A BENEFIT sale FOR HUICHOL ARTIST
Modesto Rivera Lemus is an indigenous Huichol of Nayarit. A painter and Huichol artist for 30 years, he has shared in a very special way the stories and history of his culture through paintings made of yarn and bee’s wax. In order to create his paintings, Mr. Modesto Rivera begins with a rigid wooden board made of pine. First, he spreads the bee’s wax and pine resin to cover the wood. Then he draws his designs. Lastly, he fills his detailed design by applying colored yarn.
In the Huichol Culture, everything has meaning, from the creatures that live on Earth to their colors; every piece of art tells a story through the ancient language of symbols. It is through their art and stories that the Huichol give guidance and strength to the Huichol Nation. Modesto has been recognized in his community for the preservation and study of their traditions and cultural heritage. Modesto Rivera Lemus follows the ways of Huichol tradition through the Yw’rata community, located near Tepic, Nayarit, where his father, the Mara’akame (shaman), Eustolio Rivera de la Cruz, lives, hunting and cultivating the land.
