September 2016 - The Art World: The 29th Annual Galisteo Studio Tour
Welcome, art, nature, and food lovers to the jewel of New Mexico’s studio tours!
Galisteo is celebrating its 29TH STUDIO TOUR on Saturday and Sunday, October 15 and 16, from 10am to 5pm. A short drive from Santa Fe, the historic village of Galisteo lies in the magnificent Galisteo Basin. Over 20 artists and craftsmen will open their studios to share photography, painting, ceramic art, jewelry, handmade knives, traditional straw inlay, sculpture, and weaving. Some of these artists show nationally and internationally: we also have a recent Governor’s Art Award winner on the tour.
Inspired by the art and artists of Galisteo, visitors can enjoy the beauty and peace of our high desert landscape and the golden cottonwood foliage of our bosque in the Fall.
Culinary delights are part of our tour. For the second year, we shall partner with The Street Food Institute whose mission is to encourage culinary students to develop delicious and healthy food using sustainable business practices: their Mobile Gourmet food truck will serve New Mexican food with a contemporary twist. At Cocina de Mela, a long time tour favorite housed at our community center, Anna Cardenas and her sisters will offer their mother’s traditional New Mexican food. Their family recipes, such as Mela’s Red and Green Chile, have been handed down for generations.
