When Gus came to stay

Pasatiempo - - ON THE COVER -

2018 marks 100 years since one of New Mex­ico’s most prom­i­nent 20th-cen­tury artists, Gus­tave Bau­mann (1881-1971), first ar­rived in Santa Fe. On Fri­day, Sept. 28, and Satur­day, Sept. 29, the New Mex­ico Mu­seum of Art and the New Mex­ico His­tory Mu­seum present “A Gath­er­ing for Gus,” a symposium on mul­ti­ple as­pects of the renowned print­maker’s life and works. The event in­cludes dis­cus­sions of Bau­mann’s prints, his paint­ings, and the con­ser­va­tion of his hand-carved mar­i­onettes, as well as the repli­ca­tion of Bau­mann’s stu­dio — now on view at the Palace of the Gov­er­nors’ Palace Press — and tours of his his­toric home on Camino de las An­i­mas. In this is­sue, we de­tail three ar­eas of Bau­mann’s lo­cal legacy: his whim­si­cal house, his in­deli­ble works, and his mem­o­rable mar­i­onettes. Meet Gus, the con­sum­mate crafts­man, whose art con­tin­ues to en­chant au­di­ences of all ages. On the cover is Bau­mann’s print Morn­ing Sun, 1938, wood­block print, cour­tesy Ger­ald Peters Gallery.
