Now in its 27th year, the Contemporary Hispanic Market has grown in both prestige and numbers. Artists new to the show must be selected by a jury of their peers, and established artists’ work is reviewed by a jury periodically, thereby ensuring “the high quality of the art presented [at market] each year,” said Ramona Vigil-Eastwood, chair of Contemporary Hispanic Market. “Getting selected to the market one year does not guarantee showing for life.”

Matthew Gonzales, Contemporary Hispanic Market public relations and advertising chair, noted that of the 135 artists in this year’s show, 23 are new to the market, chosen from 71 applicants for the open spaces. The newcomers were selected by an independent, three-member panel in a ‘blind judging’ of their work. “We had a lot of great work coming in this year,” Gonzales enthused. “I’ve been involved with the Contemporary Hispanic Market for 10 years, as both an artist and administrative volunteer, and the artwork just keeps getting better and better over the years.”
