The 16th Annual International Folk Art Market Santa Fe
Featuring Over 150 Master Artists from 50 Countries
July 12, 13 and 14, 2019—Museum Hill in Santa Fe, New Mexico
The opportunity to shop for the world’s finest folk art while experiencing the dynamic diversity of global cultures comes only once a year at the International Folk Art Market Santa Fe, the world’s largest folk art festival. Art and culture lovers will definitely want to be in this acclaimed high-desert arts destination July 12–14 as the Market celebrates the 16th annual gathering of the world’s master folk artists with over 150 artists from 50 countries. This year’s cross-cultural fair features 45 first-time artists, including artists from three countries, never before represented at the Market: Australia, Bulgaria, and Iraq.
Energized by the hands and hearts of these master makers, the 2019 Market promises a must-see, border-blurring explosion of form, texture and design—textiles, jewelry, beadwork, basketry, sculpture, ceramics, rugs, metalwork, clothing, home accessories and more. Juried by two panels of experts, the work represents the highest quality folk art made in the world—and for the world—today. As visitors are immersed in a high-energy ambiance of craft, culture, and creativity, and artists are venerated for their traditional skills and innovation, everyone will contribute to shared ideals of global unity, community sustainability, and economic change.
