Martha Struever's Art tour recap
11:08 pm mdt
First off I want to take the time to thank Martha Struever for bringing her Summer Art Tour to see me in Santa Fe at the Museum of Spanish Colonial Art on museum hill in Santa Fe, New Mexico. It was a true success.
I met some some American Indian Art Collectors that have now stated their commitment to attend the Traditional Spanish Market
as well as the Indian Market in Santa Fe. I met some true collectors that appreciate my work and my commitment to my craft.
I also want to thank the staff at MOSCA for helping us out. Robin Farwell Gavin, Curator of the museum gave a great talk on the history of Spanish colonial
influences on American Indian jewelry making. Also in attendance was Maggie Magalnick, Director of Spanish Market, who gave
a brief history of Spanish Market in Santa Fe. Donna Pedace, Executive Director, deserves and big hug for allowing us to invade the Museum of Spanish Colonial
Art that Saturday morning. I am so glad, that with the help of one of the nations foremost American Indian Art collectors
and authors, Martha Struever, we are able to educate some interested collectors on the influences of Spanish Colonial Jewelers
on American Indian Art. see you at Spanish Market, July 30-31 on the Plaza.
