Innovations within the Tradition

In 2011, the Society introduced an “Innovations within the Tradition” subcategory that allowed artists to employ more creativity in their artwork and revitalize Spanish Market in its larger contemporary setting of the arts in Santa Fe. The innovations can be in subject, form, materials, tools, and/or techniques while still working within the traditional format.
