So glad that this new year has started out on a positive track, the covid-19 vaccine is now available and hopeful that more art shows will be opening up. I am very thankful to @nmartisanmarket for the pop-up shows they have provided to NM artisans at the Sawmill Market located at 1909 Bellamah Ave. NW | Albuquerque, NM 87104 | (505) 563-4473. They follow all covid-19 safe guidelines and I was fortunate to do 3 weekends last fall. They thankfully are continuing this spring. all weekends through June 27.

I did a show in February and am scheduled for four more through June. My schedule is:
(next weekend) March 19 – 21, April 23-25, May 28-30, and June 25-27. The times each weekend are: Friday from 11am – 8 pm, Saturday from 10am – 8 pm, and Sunday from 10am – 5pm.


The historic lumberyard building is underwent a dramatic transformation into a new 34,000-square-foot central marketplace, food hall, and outdoor gathering space. This building that was once home to over 800 sawmill employees will now serve as a community gathering hall for Albuquerque showcasing the beauty of New Mexico through food, diversity, and art.

An industrial-yet-modern design will incorporate regional design elements with a nod towards conveying the sawmill roots of the area. Floor-to-ceiling steel frame windows highlight an open and airy space filled with natural light. Garage doors leading to patios and plentiful outdoor space set the atmosphere for enjoying pristine New Mexico weather in the warmer months. PiƱon wood-burning fireplaces and fire pits create a warm and comforting ambiance in the cooler months.

Please come by and see my vintage metal paintings and as our future world opens up more and more. Great food, drink and art!
