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.
