Spanish Market Artists' Reception - Santa Fe Hispanic Chamber - Santa Fe

Elks Lodge

1615 Old Pecos Trail
Santa Fe, NM 87505

The Santa Fe Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (SFHCC) is delighted to hold their most popular event of the year on Wednesday, July 26, 2017. Just prior to Santa Fe's world-renowned Spanish Market, SFHCC will host 25 traditional Spanish Colonial Artists at the Elks Lodge at 1615 Old Pecos Trail for their Annual Spanish Market Artists’ Reception. 

For the community, this yearly event serves as an intimate opportunity to mingle with the artists, while for the artists it’s a time to relax and take a deep breath before the intense schedule of the Spanish Market. For the Hispanic Chamber, highlighting Hispanic arts and culture is one of their priorities. Honoring the artists of the Spanish Market, many of whom are second or third generation participants, is one way that they accomplish this goal.

While approximately 250 artists participate in the Spanish Market each year, only 25 will be honored at the Artists' Reception. One piece of art from each artist will be featured at the event, some of which will be available for sale. In past years, reception attendees have taken this opportunity to purchase unique art before it becomes available to the Spanish Market crowds!

Attendees at the Spanish Market Artists Reception and honored artists will sample hors d'oeuvres while sipping fine wines or enjoying drinks from the cash bar. Entertainment will be provided by Flamenco guitarist Isaiah Martinez and Mariachi Encantado.

Tickets for the Spanish Market Artists’ Reception may be purchased on SFHCC’s website at www.sfhccnm.org or at Alphagraphics, 2002 Cerrillos Rd. Tickets may also be purchased by calling 505-473-0348 or at the Santa Fe Hispanic Chamber’s monthly Business After Hours events. Tickets are $25, which includes a glass of wine, refreshments, and entertainment.

The stunning art for this year's poster is titled El Sagrado Corazon by Martha Varoz Ewing. She is a multiple award-winning Traditional Spanish Colonial Artist in straw appliqué and tin art and her work is in many public and private collections. El Sagrado Corazon was graciously donated to the Santa Fe Hispanic Chamber’s cause via photograph from a private collection. Photo by LeRoy N. Sanchez.

Local and visiting art lovers will not want to miss this chance to recognize and mingle with an impressive array of talented Spanish Colonial creatives - it’s a uniquely Santa Fe experience!
