Congratulations to the expanding IFAM Community of Artists:
Meet the IFAM 2022 Cohort!

We are so grateful to the artists we serve for sharing with us their wondrous creations that bring color and beauty in to our lives. In that vein, we are thrilled to announce the next cohort of artists selected to exhibit in the 2022 International Folk Art Market in Santa Fe. Each entrant took part in a rigorous, multi-step selection process and 158 artists were chosen from hundreds of applicants. Of those 158, 38 are first-time to Market artists. The 2022 cohort of artists represent 48 countries including two that are new to IFAM: Finland and The Russian Federation. Please join us in celebrating their acceptance. We can’t wait to see you on Museum Hill next summer!
