Yesenia Yadira Salgado Téllez | Mexico | Jewelry 2018 Sponsored Artist

Last year, artists who participated at the International Folk Art Market Santa Fe earned an average over $20,000 taking home 90% of their sales. Artists report that with the earnings from the International Folk Art Market Santa Fe they have been able to purchase land, build new studios, run health clinics, hire teachers and start schools, pay for school fees and books, and buy farm animals that bring additional wealth.

Your support will value the humanity of the handmade, honor timeless traditions, and embrace the vision of dignified livelihoods for these first-time Market artists coming to Santa Fe. With your help, the International Folk Art Market will be able to provide direct financial support for first-time Market artists who would not be able to attend the the 15th Anniversary International Folk Art Market Santa Fe otherwise.

Gifts of every size make a difference! For gifts $100 and above you will receive special benefits and tickets to the International Folk Art Market | Santa Fe. For gifts of $1,000 and above your name will be listed in the artist’s booth of your choice.

Partner with us to make a positive global impact on the lives of these artists through folk art!
