ART Santa Fe was founded in 1995 to enhance Santa Fe’s contemporary art market and thereby make an important contribution to Santa Fe’s entire art community. This year, 59 exhibitors from 19 countries are participating. ART Santa Fe also provides Project Spaces for “alternative” work. This year, eight non-profit institutions and galleries host Project Spaces: the Center for Contemporary Arts Santa Fe, Diaz Contemporary, The Frostig Collection, Salon MarGraff, Monroe Gallery of Photography, the New Mexico Museum of Art, the Santa Fe Art Institute, and SITE Santa Fe. This video documents the Vernissage of ART Santa Fe 2008 at El Museo Cultural de Santa Fe in the booming Railyard Art District of Santa Fe, starting with the ribbon cutting with Councilor Rebecca Wurzburger and ART Santa Fe Director Charlotte Jackson. Santa Fe, July 10, 2008.
PS: On Saturday July 12, there’s a lecture (“Clyfford Still and the Impact of American Painting”) by Dean Sobel, Director of the Clyfford Still Museum in Denver, Colorado, at the St. Francis Auditorium of the New Mexico Museum of Art, Santa Fe.
