OCTOBER 2019 | Featured Artist
Please join us in congratulating our very own Spanish Market artist Nicolas Otero! Nick is a recipient of the 2019 Governor's Awards for Excellence in the Arts! A true honor, the awards are given to living artists and arts supporters who have demonstrated lifetime achievement in their art form and have made significant contributions to the arts in New Mexico.
Nicolas Otero began practicing the tradition of Santo making at just 16 years old by apprenticing with master artists. Otero produces retablos, bultos, altars, gesso reliefs, hide paintings and ramilletes (paper flower adornments). He continues to use traditional methods in his work such as the production of natural pigments and hand carved panels.
We are so proud of you Nicolas and honored to have you as a Spanish Market artist! Congratulations on this recognition!
