As part of the Artist in Residence Program, painter Sandy Vaillancourt will be featured over Thanksgiving weekend, Nov. 23-25, from 11AM to 7PM in the lobby Cantinita and again December 21-23rd. Please stop by to see her latest creations in watercolor and oils, small works, holiday cards, and more.
Sandy’s paintings reflect on people, places and scenes from everyday life, particularly in Santa Fe and the surrounding area. Detours, La Fonda’s gift shop, has been carrying Sandy Vaillancourt’s work for years. Over the past several years, Sandy has been holding her holiday art shows at La Fonda and will continue to do so this year.
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.
