How to Become a Volunteer:

We invite the participation of others interested in sharing their interests in historic preservation, arts programming, fundraising, publicity, graphic design, community development, etc. Your interests may be seasonal or related to individual events. We welcome you to contact Ed Epping,, for more information.

How to Offer a Pop-Up of your work:

The Galisteo Arts Center hosts nine weekend pop-up opportunities during the 2020 season. Our 2019 season pop-ups were successful in generating revenue for the seven participating artists and craftspersons.


We invite NM artists + craftspersons to contact us regarding their interest, selected images of the type work that would be included and possible dates of interest.


The allocated space is approximately 150sq ft floor space and 24 feet of wall space. Terms of Use:

• We are offering this space without a rental fee in exchange for 20% of the sales

• Each pop-up would ideally occur in one weekend and not continue for more than two consecutive weekends

• You would be responsible for operating the open hours of your pop up and La Sala Arts Center (11-5, Saturday + Sunday)

• You would be responsible for managing your transactions and advertising.

La Sala provides the space, road-side signage, announcement of your POP-UP on our La Sala website, bi-monthly newsletter, and Facebook pages, some display pedestals, electricity, trash/recycling and a porta-potty.

Please NOTE: any sales you tendered during your Pop Up from the La Sala exhibition, CLIMA, would result in a 10% commission for you.
