elZocalo - A Cooperative Gallery of Local Artists

As my regular readers know, The Husband and I have spent a lot of time in New Mexico this summer.

During our last trip to Las Vegas, NM, we visited elZocalo - a cooperative gallery of local artists. The gallery is located on The Historic Plaza.

We purchased this wall pocket:
It was created by artist Diana Whitten, who lives in New Mexico. It is made of copper, with lovely, attached beads and a beautiful, blue glass cylinder to hold flowers. This is a great piece of art that we were happy to bring home to Oklahoma.

The best thing about this piece of art? It only cost $48.

The lesson here is, look for local artists that are creating items that "speak" to you and then purchase those items.

You will never regret it!
