DALLAS–Artists from the Santa Fe International Folk Art Market will return to Dallas for the second time June 20-24 as part of the FINDS Dallas Temp Show, which has staggered opening and closing dates. The collection will feature the work of 18 artist groups in its new location, the Hall of Nations in the World Trade Center, first floor.
“The Santa Fe International Folk Art Market Collection is a heartwarming, unique offering of products that we are honored to host in Dallas,” said Cindy Morris, COO, Dallas Market Center. “This past year was a huge success and we are thrilled to welcome the artists back to our marketplace this summer.”
The artists from India, Kyrgzystan, Zambia and other countries will travel to Dallas before heading to Santa Fe, N.M. for the annual International Folk Art Market, the largest international folk art market in the world. The mission of the Santa Fe Market is to foster economic and cultural sustainability for folk artists and folk art worldwide and to create intercultural exchange opportunities that unite the peoples of the world. Each artist is making a difference for their families and communities through the sale of their one-of-a-kind handmade products.
