Well-known for the arts, the Placitas Holiday Sale will be celebrating 36 years as one of the most entertaining arts & crafts fairs in New Mexico. Some of the finest Artists and Artisans come from all over the state to show their art at the Holiday Sale, held every year on the weekend before Thanksgiving in the historic Village of Placitas. On November 18-19, the art show will be from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm on Saturday and 10:00 am to 4:30 pm on Sunday.
The Placitas Holiday Sale will be spotlighting Nancy Wood Taber as the 2017 Featured Artist of the show. Taber expresses her passion for nature and animals through her detailed and thought provoking colored pencil drawings that captures the unique spirit of animals. She continues to expand her creativity as she has now added jewelry alongside her colored pencil drawings. Spiritually inspired pendants, her totem animal jewelry come in the many shapes of a wolf, raven, cougar, bear, horse, owl and rabbits.
Special this year, the Holiday Sale will highlight the work of Jim Fish, owner of Anasazi Fields Winery, who suddenly passed away earlier in the year. He was a master of seeing the beauty in nature in wood and transforming them even further into unique wooden sculptures and walking sticks.
The many artists, painters, printmakers, ceramic and glass artists, woodworkers, silk painters, photographers, gourd artists, jewelers, metal artists will bring their handmade work to sell. Homemade clothing, leather goods, painted drums, hand-carved furniture, and much more art will be on display at the three central locations. Site #1, Anasazi Fields Winery; Site #2, The Big Tent, next to the Presbyterian Church and Site #3 the Placitas Elementary School.
