Pasatiempo - - PASA WEEK -

El Zaguán, 545 Canyon Road, 505-983-2567 In 1928, while en route to Cal­i­for­nia, Wil­lard Clark (1910-1992) stopped in Santa Fe and made the city his per­ma­nent home. His com­mer­cial print shop on Sena Plaza in the 1940s, of­ten re­ferred to as Santa Fe’s first art gallery, sold his paint­ings and the wood­cuts for which he is known, which capture the en­chanted feel of New Mex­ico’s adobe homes and land­scapes. The His­toric Santa Fe Foundation presents Orig­i­nal Wood­cuts by Wil­lard Clark, open­ing Fri­day, Aug. 5, with a 4 p.m. re­cep­tion. A mem­bers-only lec­ture on Clark’s work by Dr. Robert Bell takes place on Aug. 16 at 3 p.m.
