Mixed Me­dia Re­cy­cle Santa Fe Art Fes­ti­val

Pasatiempo - - CONTENTS -

The funky, the eclec­tic, and the vin­tage are for sale at the 17th an­nual Re­cy­cle Santa Fe Art Fes­ti­val, held the week­end be­fore Thanks­giv­ing as a kick-off to the hol­i­day shop­ping sea­son. Be­fore — or in­stead of — head­ing to the mall, you can se­lect one-of-a-kind items from over 80 lo­cal and na­tional artists who work with re­cy­cled ma­te­ri­als to cre­ate ev­ery­thing from quilts and jew­elry to purses and lamps. All goods must con­sist of at least 75 per­cent re­cy­cled ma­te­rial, and the fair in­cludes both crafts and fine art. Artists re­pur­pose sil­ver­ware and safety pins, tin cans and old pic­ture frames, but­tons and teacups, bro­ken glass plates and rusty chil­dren’s toys. The fair is like a cross be­tween an an­tiques show and a thrift store, with a wide range of prices, so it’s pos­si­ble to find gifts for hard-to-please peo­ple who al­ready have ev­ery­thing. The pop­u­lar Trash Fash­ion Show and Cos­tume Con­test, on Fri­day, Nov. 20, at 7 p.m., fea­tures wear­able looks as well as way-out cou­ture creations made from ma­te­ri­als as di­verse as bi­cy­cle parts, dis­carded um­brel­las, and plas­tic forks. Re­cy­cle Santa Fe Art Fes­ti­val is at the Santa Fe Com­mu­nity Con­ven­tion Cen­ter (201 W. Marcy St.), on Nov. 20, from 5 to 9 p.m., Satur­day, Nov. 21, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sun­day, Nov. 22, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Fri­day night’s fair ad­mis­sion is $5; ad­mis­sion to the Fri­day-night Trash Fash­ion Show is $15 to $20 and in­cludes ad­mis­sion to the fair. Ad­mis­sion is free on Satur­day and Sun­day. For in­for­ma­tion visit www.re­cy­cle­santafe.org. — Jen­nifer Levin
