A FALL TRADITION
The 36th annual DIXON STUDIO TOUR
Saturday Nov. 4 and Sunday Nov. 5 from 9am to 5pm
The group show “Collected Works” will open on Friday Nov 3, from 5:30 PM to 7:30 PM in Dixon, NM.
The Dixon Studio Tour is the oldest continuously running studio tour in the state. The Tour encompasses the adjacent villages of Dixon, Embudo, Rinconada, Canoncito, and Apodaca. Nestled in the Embudo Valley where the Rio Embudo flows into the Rio Grande, it is 50 miles north of Santa Fe and 25 miles south of Taos at the junctions of NM 68 and 75. The Tour owes its longevity and popularity to many factors, including the local community and the proximity to the active cultural scenes of Santa Fe, Taos, Taos Pueblo, Ohkay Owingeh Pueblo, and Picuris Pueblo. Only a few miles from the Embudo Valley is the newly documented Mesa Prieta petroglyph and rock art site with over 60,000 images.
Long known for its rich Hispanic heritage, productive farm lands, and pastoral beauty, in the last 30 plus years the area has attracted many artists. People love to come to Dixon and the surrounding villages to wander among the orchards and visit the open studios featuring a wide spectrum of contemporary and traditional fine art and crafts.
The local community is included with the Mercado at the local school and the Mercadito at the Mission building. Both venues feature many homegrown and homemade local products as well as traditional New Mexican lunches. www.dixonarts.org
