NEWER KIDS ON THE BLOCK: CON­TEM­PO­RARY HIS­PANIC MAR­KET

Pasatiempo - - MIXED MEDIA -

Whether it’s the re­al­ist wa­ter­color paint­ings of Mar­lene Bachicha-Roberts, the Día de Los Muer­tos themed il­lus­tra­tions of John Sanchez, or the re­li­gious icons made of com­puter cir­cuit boards by Mar­ion Martinez, the an­nual Con­tem­po­rary His­panic Mar­ket, now in its 29th year, brings an eclec­tic mix of works to down­town Santa Fe. The Con­tem­po­rary Mar­ket runs con­cur­rently with the Tra­di­tional Span­ish Mar­ket on Satur­day, July 25, and Sun­day, July 26. New Mexico artists at more than 130 booths show­case con­tem­po­rary pho­tog­ra­phy, paint­ings, prints, sculp­ture, ce­ram­ics, jew­elry, and many other medi­ums. The Con­tem­po­rary Mar­ket takes place on Lin­coln Av­enue ad­ja­cent to the Santa Fe Plaza from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m both days. At­ten­dance is free.

A free preview takes place at the Santa Fe Com­mu­nity Con­ven­tion Cen­ter (201 W. Marcy St.) on Fri­day, July 24, at 5:30 p.m. There, visi­tors can see award­win­ning works from this year’s fair.
