ARTeNews – July 2017

Ron’s Palette

Gives “Shopping Cart” a ‘Whole’ New Meaning

I just read that Amazon has bought Whole Foods in order to make a dent in Walmart.

I can’t quite figure out that logic, but I’m sure it has to do with the new trend of buying your groceries online. Walmart then announced it bought Bonobos as its latest online company purchase in their strategy against Amazon. Amazon has already destroyed Borders and many other brick and mortar stores so why not go after Walmart. Walmart has also destroyed a lot of other retailers when they open up in small towns. I hate being negative but this trend of getting everything from Amazon and Walmart is a bit scary. I guess I am still one of those old fashioned type of shoppers that like to go into a store and see things and then support the retailer who has them and showed them to me.

As Amazon grows in power, it will continue to dictate what products succeed and which fall by the way side. They cherry-pick the most popular items from a manufacturer’s product line, sell them cheap and in great volume, and the rest of the product offering falls away and then is discontinued or unavailable.

I hope the new generation has the consciousness to realize that if you don’t support local business…it goes away. When it goes away, so does a lot of the tax base for cities to offer programs for youth, art installations, and many of the other “fluff” programs we all benefit from. Our society continues to head in the direction of “fast and cheap” without thinking that this has a price to pay as well.

On the positive side…Amazon has bigger brothers in India and China that are probably figuring out ways to put dents in Amazon…so Amazon is opening up some brick and mortar stores…go figure?

Namaste, Ron

Artist of the Month

Glenn Strock

“This month we visited Glen at the site of his latest project, and spoke to him about the challenges he faced in the creation of this wonderful piece of artwork. Be sure to take a drive to see the artwork in person, on the Santa Fe County Human Resources Office at the Solana Center on West Alameda.”  ~ Ron

ABOUT

Glen Strock is an artist living in New Mexico.

THE WORK

(from an article in the Santa Fe New Mexican)

WATCH VIDEO
Artist Glen Strock wanted to show how New Mexico’s cultures can come together in a spirit of compassion. But some people saw just the opposite. Strock, 69, signed on to paint a mural this fall in conjunction with Santa Fe County Teen Court, a remediation program for juvenile offenders. The mural has been vandalized and criticized. As a result, changes are being made.

It is the latest front in an ongoing local battle over how to acceptably depict Colonial New Mexico, a time of conflict between the Spanish and Native Americans, in public art. The mural, black on the white-and-beige exterior of the Santa Fe County Human Resources Office on West Alameda Street, shows a Spaniard on horseback. A Native boy sits before the horse, a cross of reeds in one hand. The Spaniard’s unsheathed sword looms above him. The sword since has been whited out. The mural’s overseers decided to change course last week, bowing to the public backlash that spanned a spectrum of displeasure, said Jennifer Romero, manager of the Teen Court, which is responsible for the commission and creation of the mural.

WorrellPad_1Bill Worrell Pad: $15

Bill Worrell has been an inspiration to me ever since he walked through the doors of our Canyon Road store over 25 years ago. His creativity is endless. He expresses himself in everything he does, from small ceramic bowls to monumental bronzes. He is constantly writing…books, songs, poems or just creative ideas. He encouraged me to keep a journal years ago, and it has changed my life (or at least documented it). I hope this journal propagates the magic, mystery and music hidden in your soul, and may your journey be well recorded. Namaste, Ron. You can purchase the pad HERE.
