“We’re thrilled that the 99th Indian Market is happening this year. This is easily the most exciting time of the year for us at Sorrel Sky Santa Fe. Our artists, guest artists, collaborators, and art advisors are eager to welcome visitors and collectors into the gallery, establishing new connections and strengthening existing relationships.”— Shanan Campbell
