Many participating artists are returning to the Las Cruces Arts Fair while others are new on the southern New Mexico arts scene. The chairs of this year’s fair are Sally and Glenn Cutter and Diane and Robin Fovargue. “With such outstanding artists from all over the country, the Las Cruces Arts Fair has become a signature fine arts event in the Southwest. The artists love the fine reception and support that they receive in Las Cruces. They are as excited about the event as we are.” Proceeds from the Las Cruces Arts Fair benefit the Dona Ana Arts Council, the Rio Grande Theatre, and support numerous community programs.
