A Celebration Of The Saints Litany: An Exhibition Of Retablos

Adding our own European touch to this weekend’s Santa Fe Spanish Market, Bon Marché is thrilled to be hosting its very own fringe event.Special guest, Anne Devine, a Scottish classically trained artist, will be exhibiting a collection of her works for this Saturday’s outdoor patio event.

Classic European painting meets 19th century folk tradition with Anne’s retablo painting as she has added her own iconography into her various works. With a focus on the 19th century Mexican Folk art painted saints on tin and wood, Anne has added a visible depth of emotion into her own painting technique.


Drawn to the devotional imagery and tender renditions of the portraiture of the Saints, Anne has made this body of work her own spiritual journey during her time here in Santa Fe.


A Glasgow School of Art graduate, Anne’s inspiration for her saints’ project comes from a collection of postcolonial paintings at the Peyton Wright Gallery. Devotional sacred art has been a recurring theme in many of Anne’s recent pieces over the years, and she has been fortunate to have the opportunity to have works displayed in the interior of numerous churches in Scotland. Anne is continually draw to the devotion and emotion of the original painters of Saints from hundreds of years ago and has found solace in their symbols and imagery during her time here in Santa Fe.


Bon Marché is so thrilled to have the opportunity to display this award-winning artist’s works. With national and international exhibitions, this is certainly an exhibit worth attending. Join us this Saturday, July 28th, at our shop from 9AM to 4PM for this special event during Spanish Market weekend and be inspired by these classic icons.


All works have been created in St. Margret’s Workshop and are dedicated to the creation of Sacred Art for churches, public places and private collections. For more information, call our shop on 505.699.3032.

A bientôt, Alex
