Victor Archuleta
Woodcarving Demonstration
Victor is a Spanish Market Artist known for his traditional, classic furniture design.

Felicia Trujillo
Willow Basket Workshop

Felicia is a celebrated willow basket weaver whose work can be as simple as a holiday tree ornament or small basket and as complicated as a hand-woven cover for the bed of a pickup. Primarily self-taught, Felicia is eager to share her techniques and materials with the public and offer the simple joy of creating something with your own hands.

Robb Rael
Painting Demonstration
Robb is a celebrated local painter whose work can be found in private collections both locally and nationally. Among his most-viewed works are his 2009 Zozobra poster image as well as the mural capping the bar at the Plaza Restaurant on Santa Fe’s south side. Inspired by illustration, graffiti and the local environment, Robb’s work is a staple for any local collector. Come meet Robb and watch his imagination at work.
