Artist in Residence: Hollis Chitto
January 4 @ 4:00 pm - February 17 @ 7:00 pm
Hollis Chitto’s grandmother was a beadworker, but unfortunately she died when he was very young and he never met her. Many people have told him that her talent in beadwork was passed down to Hollis. The designs he come up with are contemporary and bold, and he uses only high quality materials. he says, “I never think of beadwork or quillwork as craft, but as fine art.”
Joining with Santa Fe’s new Artists in Residence program, La Fonda will be offering a weekend art experience from November through February that will connect a variety of different New Mexico artists, including many whose work graces our walls, with our guests and visitors right here in the lobby of the hotel. From jewelry-making to basket-weaving to beadwork to painting, come experience the magic of art and interact with the artists as they create their masterpieces and experience first-hand their creative process.
