We bought this print by Sergio Santamari,
which was produced in Santa Fe
in the Palace of the Governors
(the oldest building in the US)

We also bought his book

Previously (Oct 15) Sergio Santamaria was at Margolis and Moss for an open house in Santa Fe.

There is also a "Taller de Grafica Popular" Mexican print exhibit in the same building, the New Mexico Museum of History in Santa Fe -- Oct 6, 2017 -  Feb 18, 2018.
