Spanish Markets

How to Become a Spanish Market Artist

Traditional Spanish Market is the largest and oldest juried Hispanic art show and sale in the country. It was established in 1926 to promote the traditional arts of the New Mexico and southern Colorado region which began during Spanish Colonial times. Currently, there are approximately 200 adult artists who have successfully juried into any of the eighteen traditional art categories and thirty youth artists who are mentored in the traditional arts by current Spanish Market adult artists.


Methods for becoming a Spanish Market artist differ depending upon your age before any annual Traditional Spanish Market at the end of July. Adult artists must be at least eighteen years old and youth artists must be between seven and eighteen years old.

For additional requirements that need to be met before applying to jury into Spanish Markets, please contact Yvonne Gillespie at 505-982-2226 or
