Meet the Artists
The following six artists will feature their work at the reception, showcasing a variety of mediums, such as mix media, steel sculpture, oil painting, and more.
Five of these artists are members of the Santa Fe Society of Artists (SFSA), which was founded in 1981 and has remained the premier juried fine art group in Santa Fe. A vital part of the festivity and creativity that draws visitors to Santa Fe, the SFSA hosts a weekly outdoor fine art show near the historic Santa Fe Plaza from spring through fall. SFSA provides a vehicle for Santa Fe artists to self-promote and exhibit independently. The original 23 founding artists agreed that the best stimulus for artistic and professional growth was exhibiting their own artwork in a public setting. This principle remains true today.
