There are four art talks. Each fea­tures a panel of artists who talk about their work, but what the au­di­ence — the col­lec­tors — re­ally love is hear­ing about the in­spi­ra­tion and how the artists have cho­sen to make art their ca­reer.

The other lab pro­gram is Art Through the Lens of a

by chil­dren’s book au­thor Kelly Fis­cher. She will have 16 paint­ings on large wooden squares that chil­dren will be able to move around; they can also make their own paint­ings and lis­ten to Fis­cher read­ing from her 2013 book The Most Beau­ti­ful Color of All. This lab, which is spon­sored by the Santa Fe Chil­dren’s Mu­seum, will be held on the Con­ven­tion Cen­ter pa­tio. The Spot­light pro­gram fo­cuses on se­lected artists the jury feels de­serve recog­ni­tion based on their skill and achieve­ments in the arts. The 2016 ASF Spot­light artists are Jef­frey Bi­sail­lon, Holly Grimm, Siri Hol­lan­der, and Mary John­ston. All but Grimm are among 13 artists who are fea­tured in “Meet the Artist” talks and demon­stra­tions on fair days.

The Launch­Pad pro­gram, fea­tur­ing a site-spe­cific ex­hi­bi­tion cre­ated by an emerg­ing, un­rep­re­sented artist, is in­tended to be a reg­u­lar fea­ture at Art Santa Fe, but not this year. “This is the first time we’ve ever done a show in the sum­mer,” Mar­i­ano said. “This fills in our year, and we’re re­ally ex­cited about it, but from a pro­gram­ming per­spec­tive the places we nor­mally go to seek out a Launch­Pad artist are not as avail­able in the sum­mer — for ex­am­ple, univer­sity pro­grams. We start look­ing for next year’s Launch­Pad artist right this minute.” There are also four art talks dur­ing the fair. Each fea­tures a panel of artists who talk about their work, but what the au­di­ence — the col­lec­tors — re­ally love is hear­ing about the in­spi­ra­tion and how the artists have cho­sen to make art their ca­reer. The talks are “Paint­ing With Pas­sion,” pre­sented by Jef­frey Bi­sail­lon, Jorge Luis Ber­nal, and Bette Yozell; “Evolv­ing Into Art” by Teena Robin­son, Mary John­ston, and Grace Berge; “Sculp­ture Di­ver­sity” with An­drea Broyles, Siri Hol­lan­der, and Heidi Loewen; and “Not Just Paint­ing — Mix­ing It Up” with Laura McClana­han and Bette Ridge­way.

Red­wood‘s other five fairs are Spec­trum In­dian Wells (near Palm Springs, Cal­i­for­nia) and Ar­t­expo New York, which are staged in the spring, and Art San Diego,
