Show on NM Santeros

January 25, 2011

Here’s a great little half hour show produced for KNME public television on New Mexican Santeros.  It follows some of the artists into the studio and it is filmed beautifully.  It has many oral excerpts of personal letters from the pioneer period that get you into the mindset of the settler artisan.

It features artists Jose Benjamin Lopez, Marie Romero Cash, Felix Lopez and Cruz Lopez.

My How-To Retablo Ornament Video To Air!

November 28, 2010

Image from the videoMy father and I created a how-to video to illustrate my new “Paint-Your-Own Retablo Ornament Kit.”  The video entitled “Stamped Retablo Ornament” will be aired on Channel 26 Arts and Entertainment Public Television!  I’m so excited to share the video.  I will post the airing time as soon as I know.

overhead camera viewWe worked hard to balance the practical issues of technique with the fundamental issues of approach.  It is my first video, so there is much to learn. But it was so enjoyable and rewarding and it made me feel I really do have something important to offer.  My Dad chose to keep many of the bloopers, which gives it a warm quality I like. He went through a lot of extra effort to capture overhead views to allow the viewer to easily follow along.

sgraffito detailAt first, I was concerned about filling a half hour show with my tiny ornaments. But, once I was engaged in the process, I realized I had a lot to say (which my Dad knew all along).  If you get a chance to catch it, please send me some feedback.  If you miss it, you can purchase a copy of the complete 45 minute DVD or the kit here:  Delgado Arts Shop
