Founded by the Spanish more than 400 years ago, the high-altitude desert city of Santa Fe has a certain aura that draws artists—especially this July. The International Folk Art Market, in its 11th year, has grown to include representatives from 60 countries offering fine handmade crafts (ceramics to textiles, jewelry to basketry) in an open-air bazaar. Shoppers meet these artisans in an exchange that supports and helps preserve their work and is also a whole lot of fun. There’s more: SITE Santa Fe, the established and admired art biennial, has newly imagined its exhibition program, which it inaugurates this July as SITElines, with a focus on contemporary art of the Americas. And there is still more: Art Santa Fe, the international art fair in downtown, showcases emerging and big-name artists represented by leading galleries in Europe, the Americas, and Asia, as well as Santa Fe’s own prominent gallery scene.
