PAA-KO ART SHOW & STUDIO TOUR

Saturday & Sunday, October 8 & 9, 2016, 11am – 5pm

Paa-Ko Event Center, 232 Paa-Ko Drive, Sandia Park, NM 87047

This year’s event has been expanded beyond the Paa-Ko Event Center in Sandia Park to also include three artist homes and studios plus a wide selection of guest artists from the East Mountains. A total of 16 artists will be displaying and selling their works, which encompass painting, printmaking, pen & ink, jewelry, ceramics, glass, metal, and handmade books. This is a great opportunity to add some inspiration and color to your home, or to pick up a gift for someone special – including yourself!

A percentage of sales will be donated to the New Mexico chapter of The Adoption Exchange, a non-profit organization that serves as the connection between children who wait in foster care and families who adopt.
