Art Santa Fe Day One

Arrived a couple of days ago in New Mexico for Art Santa Fe art fair, where we'll be peddling artwork at the fair, being held this year from July 10-13, 2008 at El Museo Cultural de Santa Fe and right across the street from Site Santa Fe.

When we arrived at Albuquerque on Tuesday afternoon, we spent most of the day exploring the old city.

On Wednesday we checked into the fair spaces. The whole area around it is a whirlwind of construction as new art sites, art buildings, etc. continue to populate this area of the city.

All the crates were waiting for us at booth 52, and right away I realized that (as usual) I had shipped way too much work. Everything was unpacked and then we had the crates removed.

Because the storage area at the fair didn't open till much later, it was an interesting chess game moving around all the extra work while isolating what work to hang for the opening tonight.

The press preview is at 3:30PM, and then the opening an hour later.

If you're in that amazing little city full of art galleries (nearly 300 of them) during this time, come by booth 52 and say hola!

Lots more later as I tell you how the opening gala went!
