Santa Fe, New Mexico (PRWEB) February 07, 2012
Seven Directions Tours announces a new one-of-a kind tour for the summer of 2012 to explore Santa Fe Spanish Market. Among the many festivals that dot the exciting Santa Fe summers, the Spanish Market is particularly distinct in that it takes back to the European rooted traditions of craftsmanship, music, and food. More than 300 traditional and avant-garde artists of Spanish descent show their art and craft that still mirror their ancient traditions. Live music and dance, art demonstrations and regional foods round out this exceptional experience.
The Spanish Market is held in late July on the 400 year old Santa Fe central Plaza. In 2012 the dates are 28 and 29.
Among the most typical art forms are santos (carved images of saints), small retablos (a creative folk art form of devotional paintings), elaborate furniture and textile, delicately engraved tin works, silver jewelry and objects, and unique straw inlay. Many established artists went beyond the traditional expressions to create whimsical and satirical folk figures that have become collectable art form.

They survived incredible hardships along the way and, later, on the land they came to settle on and plow. Not surprisingly, they brought along their native traditional objects that, due to the isolation and poverty of New Spain, adopted a charm of their own, where straw replaced the shining gold! Today their culture is very alive and present in the Spanish Colonial style of many buildings in Northern New Mexico as well as in the Southern part of the state. Their native language is spoken with its lively nuances, the acequias, the irrigation system that allows a conservative use of the water in this high-desert land, is at the core of the agricultural economy, and their strong Catholic belief is at the base of the biggest procession to the Santuario de Chimay
