FLY SANTA FE
Fly Santa Fe is an organization to support economic development in northern New
Mexico by promoting the Santa Fe Regional
Airport. Long one of America’s foremost art colonies, nearby Taos is also home to a world-class ski resort; Taos Pueblo—a World Heritage Site; one of the most photographed and iconic churches—San Francisco de Asis; and a majestic landscape encompassing the Rocky Mountains and the Rio Grande Gorge. With its clean air and mythical light, visitors come to New Mexico’s Soul of the Southwest to experience rich spiritual traditions, fine art, distinctive cuisine, a thriving music scene and, of course, the raw, natural beauty of the landscape.
Santa Fe itself is a magical, exuberant, colorful journey at any time of year. Its legendary history and culture will fascinate and inspire visitors. Art galleries and diverse visual arts span ancient traditional art to the most contemporary, making it one of the largest and most important art markets in the country. Visitors can settle into world-class accommodations, partake in sumptuous world renowned cuisine, treat themselves to colorful markets and experience why Santa Fe has been considered a legendary trading center for hundreds of years.
Gail Powell has loved art and artists since her first grade art teacher introduced her class to the wonders of art through images from the National Gallery of Art. She received her degree in art education from Edinboro University in Pennsylvania. Since then, she has taught in public schools, given private art lessons and participated in many art shows and festivals around the country.
She recently moved to Santa Fe, inspired by the skies and mountains of the Southwest, and she says, “I enjoy painting in solitude. Each work presents a unique challenge to be true to myself and create images that represent the beauty I see in the world. I strive to explore harmony, light, color and the inter-connection of inward life and outward nature.”
The Santa Fe Regional Airport is within driving distance of Taos.
Fly Santa Fe supports the economic development of northern New Mexico.
