Dark Bird Palace: Shed of Folk Art

Kelly moved the Dark Bird Palace into Santa Fe a couple of years ago. It's on Canyon Road, but it didn't become one of those fancy-schmancy galleries. It's more wonderfully unique than ever.

Dark Bird Palace: Shed of Folk Art

Weird art in a weird setting. The Santa Fe flea markets are more artisan galleries these days and this one is well worth a stop. Lots of folk art and beads that you see in the usual tourist shops overseas, and an impressive variety of local art.

At the center is the Dark Bird Palace. He is a friendly fellow, so do stop and feed the artist.

Dark Bird Palace is my painting shed at the Tesuque Pueblo Flea Market. It's got years of my art and other crappola all over it.

There's crap, and then there's crappola. Two thumbs up for crappola.
