Art Magnified

International Folk Art Market

Milner Plaza on Museum Hill

“Between Human and Animal: I Am Not Stupid for Life Protection,” an herbal-dyed cotton-cord appliqué on canvas created by Nigerian artist Chief Zacheus O. Oloruntoba

Folk art has a couple obvious virtues. Given that it's often made by impoverished untrained artisans, it's more accessible than academic art. Plus, although this isn't always the case, folk art also tends to be relatively cheap. Santa Fe will host its first International Folk Art Market this Saturday, July 17, and Sunday, July 18, at the Milner Plaza outside the Museum of International Folk Art. The market presents an ideal opportunity to pick up a South African bottle cap sculpture, a Tibetan Thangka painting or some other nifty artifact from one of 40 countries being represented. $5, free for kids 16 and under. For details, call (505) 476-1203.
