Come celebrate the 30th Annual El Rito Studio Tour. Hidden in plain sight is a small community embraced by the foothills of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains where residents have lived quietly for generations cultivating lives that foster independence and creativity. Fifty miles north of Santa Fe, just 12 miles off Hwy 84, El Rito is brimming with talent in both traditional and contemporary media including weaving, welding, tin and iron work, retablos, sculpture, pottery, paintings, drawings, printmaking, photography and collage, jewelry, handmade books and note cards, furniture and carvings, and musical instruments.

Seventeen stops, including one on the New Mexico Fiber Arts Trail and one on the New Mexico Potter’s Trail, will display the work of over 40 artisans in the setting in which it was created. There will be a Mercado at the Community Center this year, featuring the art and crafts of artists from nearby communities. Visitors to the tour will be delighted by the variety of art, from local village arts to contemporary artwork. Artists we are celebrating on this anniversary year have been part of the tour since the beginning and are still showing and living in El Rito: Barbara Campbell, Emmy Cheney, Viki Edwards, Nicholas Herrera, Jane Kramer, Kathleen and Terry Vanderbrook, and Julie Wagner.

Visit our website  www.elritostudiotour.org to explore the each artist’s web page with photos, biography, artist statement, and contact information.

The El Rito Library will host its scrumptious “Death by Chocolate” fundraiser. The El Rito Quilters Guild will be selling quilts, pillows, art dolls, and draw string bags. Local musicians will be entertaining at the library as well as at the studios.

Be sure to wear comfortable walking shoes to enjoy a stroll in the crisp fall weather and work up an appetite. In the village, El Farolito will be cooking their famous chile, enchiladas, burritos, tamales, rellenos, and frito pies.

The tour is small enough that visitors can see each studio with ease and varied enough that there is something for everyone to enjoy. Autumn–with golden cottonwoods, clear blue skies, warm days, and cool nights–is a particularly beautiful time to visit.

The El Rito Studio Tour is fiscally sponsored by Luciente, Inc., a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation and partially funded by the Rio Arriba County Lodgers’ Tax Fund.
