The journey through the Pojoaque Valley's inspired ambiance can be navigated in a single day. As they follow the tour, art-watchers will be rewarded with a wide array of paint and print styles and media, including contemporary and traditional oil and acrylic paintings, mixed media, assemblage, monotypes, Sumi-e, watercolor, gouache and pastel.
Artists and artisans will also unveil original work in photography, jewelry, sculpture, fiber, weaving and ceramics. Some will be involved in works-in-progress and provide demonstrations. The Tour includes 17 stops with twenty-eight artists and artisans.
Than Povi at Cottonwood Trading Post, the new Native American art gallery at San Ildefonso Pueblo, is the first stop and hosts the Tour's Opening Reception on Friday, September 16th from 5:00 to 7:00 pm, as well as the Silent Auction on Friday evening and all day Saturday.
A downloadable tour map is available here, and printed maps are available at Than Povi (Stop #1), various Santa Fe hotels and B & B's, through links in Friday's (September 16th) Pasatiempo, as well as ads in other papers. One can also follow the yellow and black highway signs with the familiar crow logo, off 502 and obtain maps at individual artist's studios during the tour.
