Artists’ Materials Expo: Creative Spirit will offer 72 booths of art material manufacturers demonstrating and selling their materials at super savings and more than 90 instructional workshops taught by 60 regional and national artists. This year the Expo is being held at Buffalo Thunder Resort and, by working with the Poeh Cultural Center at the Pueblo of Pojoaque, many fine Native American artists have been added to the roster to share their knowledge and creative expertise. George Rivera, the governor of the Pueblo of Pojoaque and world-renowned sculptor, is excited to be bringing this art event to his native pueblo.

The workshop fees are only $75 for a 3-hour workshop and $140 for a 6-hour workshop that require pre-registration. They offer participants great value in experimentation, inspiration and creative expression. The vendor floor portion of the Expo is free to enter. Here you can talk with knowledgeable art supply experts and catch free round-the-clock demonstrations on-stage. There will also be the Artist Direct art gallery displaying art works for sale made by workshop instructors and participants.

The Hilton Hotel at Buffalo Thunder Resort is a spectacular venue for the Expo located just 15 minutes north of Santa Fe, surrounded by the majestic Sangre de Cristo and Jemez Mountains. This first class resort provides attendees the opportunity to also enjoy gaming, fine dining, golfing and more while at the Expo.
