Reiche also mentored students in Jake Lovato’s Santa Fe High School welding class in the creation of sculptures that will be for sale during the evening.

Watch four of Santa Fe’s leading artists and two Santa Fe students create art in a Quick Draw and bid on their works:  Alison Keogh (William Siegal Gallery), Fran Larsen (Manitou Galleries and 2009 ARTfeast Honorary Artist), Jami Tobey (Waxlander Gallery), and Roger Williams (Joe Wade Fine Art).

Live and silent auctions include an array of fine art, travel and adventure packages, food and wine excursions, and a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to have dinner with and become a character in Honorary Chair Valerie Plame’s next novel. Also on the block are the winners of the “I Made It!” placemat and plate competition, which this year come in a variety of new sizes.

More details to come!
