For 33 straight years, a juried Fine Arts Show was a Fall feature in Historic Old San Ysidro Church. Some of New Mexico’s finest artists showcased their creations, nestled within the warmth of the adobe walls, for nine days in early October as overhead colorful balloons filled the skies. This year’s show will be held October 2nd-10th.
A win all around
Artists need venues to strut their stuff. When they sell a piece at this show, 25 percent of their sales are donated toward the preservation and maintenance of the Old Church so that this 150-year-old historic structure will be around for centuries to come. As an art enthusiast you get zoom-in viewing and enjoyment of exceptional art, plus knowing your purchase helps both the artist and Old Church as it brings years of visual pleasure in your special space.
