7 July - SOFA West and Madame Butterfly

LAUNCHPROJECTS - Attended the opening preview for SOFA - the International Exposition of Sculpture Objects and Functional Art. Works at the fair ranged from incredible glass pieces Italian artist Silvia Levenson at Bullseye Gallery to Beth Cavener Sticher's goat at Garth Clark Gallery. Having followed Sticher's career for years I regret not buying her work earlier. She is truly a remarkable and luscious talent. (Sticher goat pictured above, along with friends Yon Hudson, New Mexico Museum of Arts Director Mary Kershaw, Ben Lincoln, Alex Hanna, and Mihail Lari).

Following the SOFA reception, we stopped into the Compound Restaurant for a quick bite and then on to the Santa Fe Opera to see Puccini's Madame Butterfly. A stunning performance by soprano Kelly Kaduce.
