Weems International Artfest 2014


  • Expo, New Mexico - Manuel Lujan Building Albuquerque, New Mexico

Albuquerque, New Mexico

What began as a local small arts and crafts fair 30 years ago has blossomed in to New Mexico’s most prestigious and exciting international event featuring over 279 artisans. Weems Artfest has become a nationally recognized juried art event for the knowledgeable art collector.  The art novice who has a thirst and desire to begin their art collection will also find Artfest a haven because of its wide range of prices and variety, as well as an emphasis on high quality.  The festival’s commitment is to exhibit new talent along with showcasing the country’s finest in a very relaxed and non-intimidating arena.  Artfest offers educational activities for children and adults through Children’s ArtSMart, artist’s demonstrations, Student Art Booths, and the inclusion of Albuquerque museums and various state and city philanthropic organizations.  Weems Artfest is truly a New Mexico Tradition.
