SHIDONI
HEART OF SHIDONI

To our Artists and Patrons:

We have rather sad news to share. After 46 years of helping many talented artists create their works in bronze, we have made the difficult decision to close the foundry operations at Shidoni. We want to thank those of you who took advantage of our combined foundry/gallery operations to witness how many of the bronzes you’ve seen at Shidoni were actually made, then to appreciate them even more in their finished state in the Galleries and Sculpture gardens.

The good news is that our beautiful Gardens and Galleries will remain open and overflowing with amazing artistic works. We’d love to see you and your guests come and enjoy the ever changing new works at the Gallery.

We want to thank our tireless foundry employees from over the years who have made these 46 years the absolute best run ever! They helped make the name “SHIDONI” synonymous with the absolute finest craftsmanship. We hope to soon announce a new foundry that will be opened by our former employees. Stay tuned here or call for information about their exciting new business.

Finally, Tommy and Scott, and the whole Hicks family want to thank our foundry and gallery workers, and the many artists we represent for making Shidoni such a magical place.

We hope to see you in Tesuque enjoying the gardens and galleries soon!

"Tommy"

Born in Amarillo, TX in 1927, Tommy graduated from West Texas State University in 1952, and had private studies under Dord Fitz. When he was 45 years old, he and his family moved to northern New Mexico where he started Shidoni Foundry along the Rio Tesuque on a former apple orchard. This 14,000 square-foot facility, over the next 35 years, would grow into two Shidoni Galleries, two Sculpture Gardens, and one of the largest art foundries in the United States. Tommy has had a considerable amount of work shown across the country, and is part of many private and corporate art collections including the Amarillo Museum of Fine Arts in Amarillo, Texas; San Francisco Museum of Contemporary Art in San Francisco, California; New Mexico Museum of Fine Arts in Santa Fe, New Mexico; Denver Art Museum in Denver, Colorado; and the Contemporary Art Museum in Houston, Texas.

Monika Kaden

An internationally known artist who received her MFA at NYSCC at Alfred University, New York with post graduate degrees from Gerrit Rietfield Academy of Art and Design, Amsterdam, The Netherlands and University of Art and Design, Halle, Germany. She feels her life and art operate as one, with each being the inspiration for the other, with the ultimate goal of her art is that it becomes a work of many disciplines (Gesamtkunstwerk). Having been educated in the Bauhaus tradition with its extreme rules, she has discovered her own need to express the freedom of living and working in different cultures, which continues to be an ongoing adventure of discovery. Her art is a journal of this journey which combines her cultural background with themes of restriction and liberation, where she can explore new materials and techniques to express the experience of being a free person in the western world. This freedom is mirrored through her art by utilizing an unlimited combination of materials in the same way our lives are a combination of different influences. In addition she incorporates writing, music, movement and light within the work as essential ingredients necessary to complete her expression.

J.F. Ybarra

Mentored by his mother, Linda Ybarra, a print and quilting artist at the age of eight, at the age of 14 after visiting the Shidoni foundry on a family trip from San Diego in 1986 he was profoundly moved by the experience and knew then that Santa Fe was to be his future home and sculpting his next medium. He called Santa Fe home in 2001, where he worked at Santa Fe Bronze and Weston art foundry as well as Tesuque Glass where he learned the intense art of glass blowing and glass casting. With an art style described as surreal and dreamlike, enriched by his diverse ancestry which includes Native American, Mexican Indian, German, French, Eastern European and Spanish Basque, he states, “It is my goal and intention to continue to inspire and be inspired by the beauty of this land and all its creatures.”

Joe R Sisneros

Born and raised in Tesuque, New Mexico, he is a self-taught artist who currently lives and works in Tesuque. After high school he first began his career at the Art Foundry in Santa Fe, working there for 4 years starting from the bottom and working his way up. The next 13 years were spent working for the Allan Houser Foundry, where it was here that he actively started producing his animal sculptures. The name Sisneros is of Spanish descent and literally translated means “Keeper of the Swans”. It is fitting to him as Sisneros began his love for animals and art as a young man in elementary school. His inspiration comes from all around him, as he has developed a large visual diary that he draws from when sculpting his animals. A majority of his works begin in wax, others have started in clay, but the end result is always a beautiful hand patina bronze. His wall pieces have been a little more abstracted, “Monica’s Harvest” for example, was a work piecemealed from other divested works he composed and welded into its final form.
