Folk Art Traditions and Beyond, Part 2

By Nancy Walkup, posted on Jul 8, 2010

Last night artist Marion Martinez led our second hands-on session at Ghost Ranch in Santa Fe.

Marion is known for her circuit board art which she makes from recycled parts of computers, phones, and other technological objects (only the safe parts), but using traditional Hispanic imagery. She brought all kinds of materials (many from Los Alamos laboratories) from which our participants could chose to make their own creations. Here you see one of the fantastic results (and her helper and nephew John). This is the third time Marion has presented at our Folk Art seminar and we are always delighted to work with her again.
