high road artisans website - maintain website for all artists involved in this organization
Even as a very small organization, High Road Artisans has helped over 150 artists in Northern New Mexico to create, adapt, display, and sell their arts and crafts. For over 12 years, the High Road Art Tour has brought customers directly to the doors of artists' studios. For over 9 years, the High Road MarketPlace has provided a year-round opportunity for artists to sell their work to tourists and local customers. I am grateful for the founders of the organization and all those who have come after to maintain and strengthen High Road Artisans.
