Ricky Allen & Associates Top Picks for the Week:

Friday, October 4

William Metcalf: Transparency opens at Charlotte Jackson

William Metcalf: Transparency
Oct 4 – Nov 2, 2019
Reception with the artist, Friday Oct 4, 5-7 PM
Approaching from an extreme angle, near to the wall of the gallery, it can look as if there is almost nothing there at all. The thin, shaped Alupanel pieces are only 3mm thick – near to seamlessly merging with the walls. Walk round and face them front on, however, and a world of color, shape, and depth unfold before you: impossible, tantalizing, enthralling.

Location: Charlotte Jackson
554 S. Guadalupe St.

39 Yana Drive Open House

Only 8 minutes from the Plaza there’s a magnificent European-inspired hilltop estate with exquisite views of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains and the surrounding foothills that is truly one-of-a-kind. This exclusive property features a stunning main house, a guest house, bedroom and bath, a separate artist studio and 7.7 acres–all in desirable Tesuque. The 4 bedrooms/ 3 full bathroom main house has bespoke decor imported from Europe including hand painted, antique French ceiling beams; arched stone columns; beautiful mixture of wood and stone floors; antique doors and shutters; stained glass and built-in cabinets. The spacious master suite possesses a separate office area and a hand-painted claw foot soaking tub. On the other side of the home’s gracious living room, a room currently used as an office could easily serve as the home’s third ensuite bedroom. A separate mother-in-law/caretaker apartment is located on the home’s garden level complete with covered parking, kitchenette, bathroom, bedroom and a generous living area. A separate artist studio with bathroom is located a few hundred feet from the main house. The newly renovated guest house/casita is complete with a kitchenette, living area, bedroom and bath. The front porch is the perfect place to sit and enjoy the mountain views. Outdoor living at 39 Yana Drive is both private and accessible with an oversized, shaded deck displaying stunning mountain views, several outdoor patio areas and a rose garden.
