July 9, Wednesday 3pm: Exhibition and talk with Edric Ong, artist, architect, and Consultant to UNESCO on Heritage, Architectural Conservation and Crafts. He is curating a show, expressly for Santa Fe Weaving Gallery, of his own shibori natural dye textiles wood-block printed silks, kalamkari Tree of Life shawls and scarves, and Thai/Indonesian textiles, not available at the Market. The talk will take place at Collected Works Bookstore, courtesy of Dorothy Massey and Mary Wolf. Then, we will join Edric at Santa Fe Weaving Gallery, around the corner, to see his show, which will open July 8th.

July 10, 9:15am Thursday, morning talk at Collected Works Bookstore with Vichai and Lee Chinalai, and Somporn Intaraprayong, Thailand. Lee will be presenting her acclaimed talk on Li people (Meifu Li) head cloths of China. We will then go around the corner to Santa Fe Weaving Gallery for a preview of Somporn’s indigo pieces.

The Chinalais will tell us about their adoption of a school in Thailand. A portion of their sales goes toward their work with the children.

11:15 am, back at Collected Works: We will have a presentation by Taos artist, Deborah Rael-Buckley. Deborah is a ceramic and mixed media “narrative” sculptor from Taos, whose work is a “balanced combination of architecturally-informed shapes, layered archetypal imagery, and detailed graphic surfaces rich in color and texture. Her work seeks to tell a story of contained memory through a series of figure and chair-based forms layered with what she terms ‘the taxonomy of memory’: the layering of personal, cultural, historical and biological imagery.” Museums and private collectors, all over the US, have collected her work.

July 11, Friday- Gallery “Walk-About”; the following galleries have agreed to showcase special collections and give 30 minute talks for our group and the public to “walk about” and hear.
