State of the Art

Executive summary by darmansjah

Consider the Santa Fe International Folk Art Market, now in its tenth year, an atlas of artisanship. July 12-14, some 190 artists from 60 countries will convene on Museum Hill under open skies with creations including Cuban paintings, Tuareg jewelry, and Malian indigo wares. Amplifying  the New Mexico city’s year round status as a global arts nexus, more than 20,000 shoppers come not only for the gorgeous goods but also to meet the makers, such as an Afghan khamak collective that transformes embroidery traditions into sumptuous wall hangings.
