Aug 3 – 6, 2008. Silk Painters International Festival (SPIN)
SPIN 2008 International Festival will take place August 3 through August 10 in Santa Fe – a city that is soaked in art. Along with the chance to take workshops from incredible teachers, there will be opportunities to hear wonderful speakers on art, history of silk, fashion, silk and dye chemistry, framing, lighting, preserving, and selling fine silk art. We will have talks from gallery owners, from museum textile curators, from successful artists, from suppliers and from teachers of silk painting. In addition, there will be the Members’ Art Exhibit, the Members’ Fashion Show, and a banquet, all against a backdrop of the beautiful high altitude New Mexican yellow desert.
