Innovations Within Tradition

A new Category, Innovations Within Tradition allows the artist to “push the envelope” of the artistic traditions and iconography inherent to the cultural heritage of New Mexico. This new category speaks to what is happening today while taking pride in the rich traditions that have been passed down for over 400 years. This new category opens avenues for Market artists who have been participating for two or more years to create and sell hand-made works of art that remain grounded in the artistic expressions of the past, yet are updated and reinterpreted for modern sensibilities.

Come and enjoy our living heritage and experience what’s new at the Market in 2011!
