November 27-28, 2015
Traditional and innovative Spanish Colonial art, featuring over 100 artists (adult and youth), music, food and more. Now in its third year in Albuquerque, this two day event allows the public to interact personally with extraordinary artists, view their work and observe demonstrations of 400 years of Hispanic culture. Each piece is hand-made and becomes more meaningful when you get to know the tradition behind it, making it a more special purchase to add to a collection or give as a gift. We hope you will bring family and friends to Market and join us November 27-28 to celebrate the 27th YEAR OF TRADITIONAL WINTER SPANISH MARKET!
This truly special Spanish Colonial Arts Society fundraiser, hosted by Brian Colón on the occasion of his birthday, features Percussive Fingerstyle Guitarist Shaun Hopper
Our Current Exhibits
Our current changing exhibitions continue the theme of the Museum Hill’s Summer of Color with Blue on Blue: Indigo and Cobalt in New Spain, and Tradición, Devoción, y Vida: 80 Years of Black and White Photography in New Mexico and Mexico (through February 2016). Permanent galleries reflect the Museum’s inaugural topic of ‘Conexiones: Connections in Spanish Colonial Art,’ with A World of Art, The Delgado Room, and The Beltrán-Kropp Collection. Each of these mini exhibitions explores the connections between the traditional art of New Mexico and the greater colonial world. The Youth Gallery is an on-going changing exhibition of work by youth artists in Spanish Market. Our next exhibition opening is on Saturday, November 7, for Starry Night, a Nativity tableau of Córdova figurines collected by Glynn Gómez (see ‘Museum Exhibits’).
