Aug. 15--For an eclectic mix of period art and items of contemporary design, visit the fifth annual Objects of Art Santa Fe at El Museo Cultural (555 Camino de la Familia). The fair includes more than 65 international galleries and dealers, with material such as Sumatran ceremonial hangings, hand-carved folk art, woodblock prints by Gustave Baumann (1881-1971), modernist works in oils, and Japanese kimonos. Pieces come from Uzbekistan, India, Ivory Coast, and many other regions of the world.
Objects of Art runs from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday, Aug. 15, through Sunday, Aug. 17, and includes the loan exhibit The Art and Artistry of Margaret Tafoya: Santa Clara Pueblo Potter. Mounted by the Millicent Rogers Museum in Taos and El Museo, the show features selections from the Tafoya collection of Pittburgh's Four Winds Gallery. Considered the matriarch of Santa Clara Pueblo potters and named 1984's Folk Artist of the Year by the National Endowment for the Arts, Margaret Tafoya (1904-2001) was renowned for her stone- and corncob-polished pottery with its intricate intaglio designs.
