The exhibition “Mirror, Mirror… Photographs of Frida Kahlo” traces the artist’s life in more than 50 images by outstanding photographers including Lola and Manuel Alvarez Bravo, Imogen Cunningham, Carl Van Vechten, and Nickolas Muray. Visitors will follow Frida from a self-possessed adolescent to a passionate wife and lover, an independent artist, fashion icon and object of cult-like reverence.

The photography exhibition originated at Throckmorton Fine Art, New York. For the Santa Fe venue the Museum of Spanish Colonial Art has added a selection of large scale photographs by William Frej conveying the ambiance of the Casa Azul, the Kahlo family home and now the Frida Kahlo Museum in Mexico City, and a group of works created in homage to Frida by innovative artists from Santa Fe’s Spanish Market.

July 29-30, 2017 at Historic Santa Fe Plaza

The Spanish Colonial Arts Society is proud to announce the 66th Annual Traditional Spanish Market on the historic Santa Fe Plaza on July 29-30, 2017.

Approximately 250 Spanish Colonial Artists from New Mexico and Southern Colorado will take part in this enchanting event, bringing to downtown Santa Fe a critical mass of exponents of woodcarving, tinwork, colcha, hide painting, retablos, straw appliqué, furniture and furnishings, weaving, jewelry, filigree, pottery and ironwork.

The Spanish Colonial Art of New Mexico features authentic artistic traditions which can be traced directly back over 400 years. Skilled artists and craftspeople create these breathtaking expressions of a living tradition, and many of them count their art as their only source of income. Styles and quality are very different and far more exacting in terms of traditional accuracy and finish than tourist pieces commonly sold elsewhere. All Adult Market artists are juried into the Market and the youth are mentored by current Market artists in their categories.
