ARTsmart New Mexico is pleased to announce its new year-round schedule for ARTfeast Santa Fe. “We are taking advantage of Santa Fe’s fantastic seasons and spreading our events throughout the year,” said ARTsmart President Connie Axton, adding, “this is also in keeping with ARTsmart’s educational art programs that also take place throughout the year.”

A nonprofit organization that raises money for art programs, workshops, materials, and scholarships for the youth of Santa Fe and northern New Mexico, ARTsmart is maintaining its traditional winter ARTfeast dates but adding fall events and moving events to the summer.

“The biggest change,” says Axton, “is hosting the popular Edible Art Tour (EAT) in June and making it two days, which allows us to accommodate more galleries in the Railyard and Downtown, as well as Canyon Road. The new EAT gallery artwalk with fabulous art, food, and drink, will take advantage of the city’s summer evenings and sunsets.”

New to the schedule are two October 2014 events designed to introduce participants to ARTsmart’s programs and facilities and to simply have fun. “We don’t call it a FUNdraiser for nothing,” says Axton. Other additions include a winter kick-off party called It’s Five-O’Clock Somewhere and a summer pledge walk called Tempo. “Lastly, we’ve combined the best parts of ARTfeast’s past brunch and gourmet dinner into a lavish Saturday night event in the Santa Fe Convention Center called Step Up to the Plate. Sumptuous food and drink, great art and experience packages, and the perennial favorite “I Made It!” plates will be available in both live and silent auctions.”

The 18th Annual ARTfeast schedule is as follows. Please visit the ARTsmart website,, for ticket prices and additional details or call 505.992.2787
