Artisan has sponsored and held these gatherings in Santa Fe since 2000. We had 76 booths, 120 workshops, and ongoing Free Demos. It was held at Buffalo Thunder Resort, 10 minutes north of Santa Fe, New Mexico. The 2016 Expo was held concurrently with the 2016 International Balloon Festival in Albuquerque. This allowed 10 days of balloon fiesta enjoyment after the Expo! Below are just a few of the things that made Expo 2016 a great success!
Admission to the Vendor Floor was FREE, and featured 76 booths of manufacturers and distributors of Artists’ Materials. The materials were for sale at greatly discounted prices and the manufacturers’ representatives were on hand to answer all technical questions. There were continuous free demonstrations of technique and materials at the demonstration area during the hours the vendor floor was open.
