Residents and visitors (aka tourists) alike love our state’s many Spanish and Indian Markets, and this weekend, you can enjoy the FREE, juried Bernalillo Spanish Art Market. Whet your appetite (and score some great art!) before the Big Event in Santa Fe later this summer.

Start with a free artist reception tonight (Friday, June 19, 2009) from 5:00 – 8:00pm. Meet special guest Beatrice Maestas Sandoval, a Chimayo weaver, along with the artisans of Los Ranchos de Las Golondrinas.

Continue on Saturday and Sunday, June 20 and 21, from 10:00am Р5:00pm each day, when you can view fantastic art in many media and enjoy demonstrations in Colcha, straw appliqu̩, weaving, and spinning. Plus, since the market is sponsored by the Old Town Shoppes of Bernalillo, we bet you can find great food, drink, and shopping.

Head for the town of Bernalillo, NM, just north of Albuquerque, and we’ll bet you can find Old Town once you get there. Or just ask a passerby. They’re friendly.
