Legacy XIV Wrap-up & Legacy XV

 

Well, our Legacy XIV was a success.  We are already working hard on Legacy XV and we hope to make it special because it is an anniversary year.  We will soon announce the featured artist and we have other ideas that we are pursuing for this special event.  Next year's event will be a week earlier than usual.  We have always had some pressure to move the event off Mother's Day weekend and next year, we will do just that.  Hopefully, it will be as successul always or even more so. 

A BIG thank you to everyone who participated in Legacy XIV.  We start off by thanking our generous patrons whose support is especially crucial.  We thank those patrons who traveled to be with us as well as those who are local.  The number in attendance was down a bit from previous years but the amount of buying was way up.  We also thank the 100+ artists and the gallery owners who donated incredible art for the event,  Without them, there is no event! We thank our sponsors who help to underwite this event and we give a special shout to the Pueblo of Sandia who really worked with us this year to keep costs down.

Finally, we thank our celebnties who always make this event special.  Thanks to Tish Hinojsa, Chris Wall, Robert David Hall, David Berman, Mike Moroff, and Jon & Whitney Wellner for their participation and extraordinary energy.  They were wonderful in every way.

Blessings and best wishes to all.
