This month’s art project will be lead by Martha Vároz Ewing who uses wheat, oats & barley straw in her work, which she gathers from her brother’s wheat fields in Southern Colorado.  The straw is known as Poor Man’s Gold and the tin is “Poor Man’s Silver.  She combines the two mediums as she feels they complement each other.  Martha notes that her art takes on a form of prayer which is offered to the Trinity and is symbolic in her designs as noted in patterns of three.  She was mentored by the late Paula Rodriguez who was responsible, along with her husband Eliseo,  for the revival of this dying art form in the 1930’s during the WPA project.

Martha is a native of Santa Fé and has been a participant in the traditional Spanish Market since 2004. She is an award winning artist and was awarded the top five awards at the traditional Spanish Market in Santa Fe in 2005.

This is a great morning of art-making for children of all ages and families of all sizes!
