Form and Function
SOFA WEST tempts with eye candy
By Summer Olsson
Not only is it a squishy place to watch TV from, not to mention a place for your too-drunk friends to crash, it’s also a huge art and design festival in Santa Fe. The third annual SOFA (Sculpture Objects and Functional Art Fair) WEST runs Thursday through Sunday, Aug. 4 through 7. Exhibitors include galleries and artists from all over the states and as far away as Argentina. You can buy and/or ogle artwork, furniture, jewelry and even things that are fascinating but hard to identify.

The Santa Fe International Folk Art Market
Changing the world, one artist at a time
By Summer Olsson
Some of the guests at the Santa Fe International Folk Art Market are unknowns from rural areas who will board planes for the very first time to reach New Mexico. Others are world-renowned rockstars in their field. The majority of these artisans come from developing countries, and their crafts are the only source of income for themselves and their families.

New store continues where Panda Robot left off

The Octopus and the Fox is the brainchild of four women who wanted a place for Albuquerque shoppers to be able to buy handmade goods.

Artiquerque Crafters Craft Carnival
By Edith P. Giblets [ Fri Mar 5 2010 2:00 PM ]
From the event title (Artiquerque Crafters Craft Carnival), three things are guaranteed: artsyness, craftiness and carnies. Only two of those, however, have an 80% chance of giving you a communicable disease.
Who cares? Grab your penicillin and head over to Studio Broadway (1810 Broadway SE) tomorrow (Saturday) from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Oh-so-many vendors will display a world of wares until 5 p.m., and the afterparty (with music and maybe some sort of carnie feats of strength) will go from 5 to 8 p.m. This is a thing you will like! Kids distractions will be there, too! And so will I, playing a game called Is This a Corn Dog? (Or just buying some legwarmers, but whatever.)
