There was a time when Art Santa Fe brought its international stable of gallerists, artists, and dealers to town every other year. As the city became a hub for more and more yearly art fairs, Art Santa Fe founder and gallery owner Charlotte Jackson turned it into an annual event. Most of Santa Fe’s summer art fairs and markets are homegrown affairs and Art Santa Fe, now in its 14th season, is no different. Jackson is taking advantage of the city’s international reputation as a destination for art and culture and, as in past years, the roster of more than 30 galleries, museums, and solo artists includes some familiar faces as well as some new ones.

Returning this year are Gallery Edel from Osaka, Japan, local gallery Zane Bennett Contemporary Art, the New Mexico Museum of Art, and photographer Doris Hembrough, sculptor Martin Spei, and others. But there’s a lot that’s new. For the first time, Santa Fe art collective Meow Wolf has an installation, and new galleries from Tokyo, Istanbul, Los Angeles, and other locales have booths. For a second year in a row, artists can represent themselves: Spei, for instance, exhibited last summer, when Jackson introduced a limited number of solo-artist booths to the fair as an alternative to showing works exclusively through established galleries. Other artists with solo booths this year include Gioconda Rojas from San José, Costa Rica, Los Angeles-based photographer Nancy Macko, and local artists John Vokoun and David Gordon. Though Art Santa Fe’s popular “How Things Are Made” series of art demonstrations is excluded this go-round, more solo-artist booths have been added.
