The 16th annual ARTfeast benefiting art programs for young people in Santa Fe happens Feb. 22-24 in Santa Fe. One of its programs is the Art of Home Tour, featuring eight properties now on the market, with art furnished by nine Santa Fe galleries. On the tour are the award-winning Sundial House by Paul Stephenson Oles, a charming Craftsman-style home in the South Capitol district, and an Eastside house designed by artist and preservationist Frank Applegate and once owned by Fred Harvey.
Artwork showcased at the homes during this event are available for purchase. Gallery owners, artists, and/or staff will be on hand to tell you about the artwork, and a portion of the proceeds from sales of art in the homes will be donated to ARTfeast, whose mission is to ensure that Santa Fe and New Mexico youth have the opportunity to explore, experience and engage in the visual arts.
“The feedback we’ve received from this event over the past few years has been tremendous,” said Candy Brenton, marketing director of Santa Fe Properties, which produces the Art of Home Tour. “Last year, nearly 500 people toured the homes over the two days. Many of the attendees mentioned to our brokers how wonderful it was that they had the opportunity to view such a wide variety of architectural styles represented in the homes and, at the same time, enjoy an impressive array of artwork.”
