Friends of Folk Art present Conversations: Intimate Salons with Folk Art Makers, Collectors & Icons with Christine Mather, Folk Art historian, author, purveyor and educator.

Please join us on Wednesday, December 6, 2023, from 10 a.m. to noon to spend time with art historian and author Christine Mather.  She has lived in Santa Fe since 1975 and her expertise on Spanish Colonial art history and the Southwest as well as her easy and fun writing style have made her books some of the best-selling about Santa Fe and its unique style. The wife of Davis Mather, she has also immersed herself in the folk arts of Mexico, New Mexico, and Native America.  The emphasis of this talk will be on her journey with folk art: from collector, author, purveyor to educator.
