Exploring New Mexico is great! Wednesday morning, my fiance, his family, and I went to the local art market to look around…needless to say there were a ton of great art and goods to buy! I’m pretty sure I would have gone broke if I would have walked out of there with everything I wanted to buy. Thankfully I was able to pick up a few beautiful items, and if I have the time, I’ll have to stop by again to see if anything new comes up. ♥
Visiting the Art Fair
After we visited the art fair on Wednesday, we stopped in at the Museum of Nature and Science as well as the Museum of Art. Unfortunately I was unable to take pictures of the current exhibit at the Museum of Art, but I was able to take pictures at the Museum of Nature and Science! :)

We also had the pleasure of attending a local wine tasting event at the winery located up the road. The winery that we visited was Amaro Winery, a small winery with delicious wines! I’m pretty sure that my favorite wine is the Chenin Blanc, a very subtle wine that has flavor of apple, pear, and melon with a hint of honey.
This part of the trip I think was my favorite. I purchased a bone hair accessory from one of local artists who carved into the bone and strung beads to it. The charm on the end of the beads is a sleeping kitty, which I couldn’t resist! My fiance and I also picked up cellphone charms: his has a Pikachu and mine has a Fuu-dog Hello Kitty. Love! I also had the chance to speak with a local artists and exchange business cards – his work was amazing and I hope to see it again someday.
I hope to become more involved in the art scene in Cincinnati. Hopefully by the end of summer I will have something to enter into art shows. ♥
