ART SANTA FE 2022 HIGHLIGHTS
Art Santa Fe celebrated 22 years in July and a successful comeback after a three year hiatus. Running July 15–17 at the beautiful Santa Fe Convention Center, Art Santa Fe featured extraordinary artwork from local, national, and international galleries, as well as extraordinary show programming, live entertainment, and other exclusive events.
Attendees strolled the aisles of cutting-edge works, sipping a glass of Pommery Champagne, deciding which artwork to add to their collection. With 65+ innovative international and national galleries, art publishers, and artists, showcasing original work of literally hundreds of artists, the fair floor was buzzing every day — not to mention sales and commissions!
ATTENTION GRABBING PROGRAMMING
Aimed not to disappoint, Art Santa Fe’s programming caught the attention of fair goers. The Spotlight Program, a focused look at several cutting-edge exhibitors selected by the Redwood Art Group curatorial committee, engaged attendees alongside Art Labs, a series of outstanding projects by leading galleries and art collectives within the fair. There were Meet the Artists and Live Demonstrations sessions daily, presenting an interactive experience—allowing attendees to get up-close-and-personal with the artists.
The Spotlight Program provided collectors with a focused look at four featured artists and galleries who created a site-specific exhibition. Spotlight Program recipients for 2022 included:
- Ray Tigerman, Robert Tigerman Studios
- William Havu, William Havu Gallery
- Edward Martin, Edward Martin Glass
- Linda Guenste & Jonathan Hertzel, Guenste / Hertzel Art Studio
