Sev­eral Santa Fe gal­leries have had long re­la­tion­ships with artists Don­ald and Era Farnsworth, even if the art­work they were show­ing didn’t al­ways bear their names. Mag­no­lia Edi­tions, the Oak­land-based print stu­dio founded by the Farn­worths, has pro­duced works in col­lab­o­ra­tion with dozens of es­tab­lished artists. Now the Farnsworths get their own solo show at Peters Projects with I For­get I’m Hu­man. The show in­cludes mixed-me­dia works done on hand­made pa­pers as well as a tex­tile from their tapestry pro­gram, a ma­jor com­po­nent of Mag­no­lia Edi­tions that at­tracts artists from far and wide, in­clud­ing Kiki Smith, Hung Liu, and Chuck Close. On the cover is the Farnsworths’ 2017 Para­sol Falls, a mixed-me­dia col­lage made with an­tique Ja­panese pa­pers on Arches rag, acrylic paints, and wa­ter­color.
