SPANISH MARKET: July 24 & 25, 2010

We'll take a brief break from photography to highlight one of Santa Fe's premiere summer events: The Annual Traditional Spanish Market, this year, it will be celebrating its 59th anniversary, Saturday and Sunday, July 24 & 25, 2010 on the Santa Fe Plaza. A popular event for residents and visitors alike, Spanish Market features handmade traditional arts by over 200 local Hispanic artists as well as continuous live music and dance, art demonstrations and regional foods. A separate youth exhibition area also features the work of some 100 emerging artists. The Market provides a unique opportunity for visitors to enjoy a taste of New Mexico’s vibrant Spanish culture, both past and present. Admission is free. More information is here.

Of course, you can take a break from the Market and pop into Monroe Gallery of Photography for a look at the current Bill Eppridge: An American Treasure exhibition, along with some of the best photography the 20th and 21st century have to offer.
