Art Santa Fe
JULY 18-21, 2019
Artists are encouraged to apply early to be part of our 2019 booth
Have your work exhibited at one of the country’s premier art shows, Art Santa Fe. Join us for the festivitIes if you like, where there is an exciting opening reception/VIP party that brings out Santa Fe’s collector crowd, and let us do all the work selling your work for you.
These are all pictures from our booth at Art Santa Fe 2018, and we will have the same booth this year, 408. A 20 foot x 20 foot booth located in the best area of the fair, Center Court, where the bar and reception festivities happen all weekend. We sold numerous works last year, from artists Jenny Phillips, Carol Dalton, Julie Brookman (who started out in our artist collective) and a large painting from a collective artist to collectors from Denver.
“Jen and her team are fantastic. Very responsive. I have exhibited in her gallery and with OPUS Artists Collective at Art Santa Fe. Jen is smart, and given her background, knows how to construct a narrative and mount a show. Her booth / space at Santa Fe was stunning. It had a gallery feel, curated, which I liked and appreciated. I believe that 2018 has been a difficult year for art sales in general. Both galleries in the Midwest that represent me have mentioned that it has been a tough year, including the one that also exhibits at the big fairs. While I did not sell my work, Jen provided meaningful feedback, I made good connections with other artists, my website saw a decent spike in traffic, and a good handful joined my email list. That being said, I would trust Jen and make the investment.” —Tom
“I am so grateful you brought us all together, but more importantly, thank you for leading by example, sharing yourself and all that you do, solidifying the importance of relationships, and your steadfast ethics... honoured to be included, appreciate all the great tips from everyone” —Janette
“Being involved with the Opus Art Collective at Art Santa Fe 2018 was a wonderful experience! Jen’s booth was the best & I received a lot of great interest, feedback & the best of all, I sold my work! What’s not to like?” —Dan
Our artists also won awards, including best of show, selected by Santa Fe art dealers, interior designers and art consultants. Being part of our collective at Art Santa Fe, as opposed to showing on your own, offers many benefits, including a large, centrally located booth in the gallery section of the fair. And because we are a preferred exhibitor, our artists benefit with additional PR opportunities and exposure.
Talking with Jen about the artists was so interesting that I submitted my work. I was honored to be accepted and sent two pieces with Jen Tough to Santa Fe. The team at Opus was professional, responsive and fun to work with. My art was beautifully displayed and professionally lit and well received. I hope to be part of Opus again and would recommend (and have done so) the collective to emerging modern artists. Great experience, great community and the feedback and response continues long after the show. — Sheila
Jen Tough’s collective made my first fair experience a pleasant one. Her team provided beautiful curation and staffing and allowed me time to connect with other artists at the fair and engage with the crowd in ways that would not have been possible if I was manning my own booth and concentrating on sales. Overall it was a positive experience that provided a lot of exposure for my work and even though my work did not sell at the fair, I still consider the experience a success for my long term goals. —Amanda
"Thank you for everything. I’m so glad I participated and glad I came to the fair. Great experience!" —Judy
