We have been looking forward to The 99th Santa Fe Indian Market that transforms the City of Santa Fe, with nearly 900 of the continent’s finest Native American artists showing their work in booths filling the Santa Fe Plaza and surrounding streets. The Indian Market is the largest and most prestigious Native American fine art show in the world.

Spectrums Within Under Our Skin-Detail-Holly Wilson-2m

Rural | Urban Invitational Art Exhibit II, The Volland Store

“Rural” and “Urban” are defined by the current address of each artist, but the artist’s current address does not necessarily indicate their origins. Once the artists are selected, the discovery begins:  where did they grow up?  what were the influences that led them to become artists?  how are their early experiences revealed in their work today?  or are they?  This is the fun of the exhibition.  Join us in the journey, and learn each artist’s story.

Throughout the exhibit, we will look at the lives of these artists, their life’s work today, and the ways in which Rural and Urban are alike, unique, and significant.

 

Closing Reception | March 1, 2020

Artist Panel at 2 pm

Spectrums Within Under Our Skin-Holly Wilson-2m
Spectrums Within Under Our Skin

Spectrums Within Under Our Skin is 144 girls made from Crayola Crayon. There are 12 different girls, each girl is made from the 12 colors I see when I look at the color spectrum. I wish we could see the light within us all and the variations that make each of us that light passing through a prism showing the many spectrums within us all. We are more than a classification in terms of a position between two extremes, we are all the colors and an untold number of possibilities.
