4th Annual ShowHouse 2016
A Celebration of Color & Culture
The 4th Annual Show House Santa Fe celebrates Old Mex & New Mex, a blend of regional and Old Mexico designs. The chosen historic east side home was part of the estate of the famous White Sisters in the 1920’s and 1930’s, daughters of a wealthy New York newspaperman.
This year's Show House is located near El Delirio, the famous home of Martha Root White and Amelia Elizabeth White. This neighborhood was the heart of the Santa Fe artists' and writers' colonies during the first half of the last century. Renowned artist Raymond Jonson was one of the original art trailblazers who lived and worked inside the adobe walls of this amazing estate. He was part of The Transcendental Painting Group (1938-1942) co-founded along with Taos Painter Emil Bistram. Other noteworthy residents included German woodcut artist Gustave Baumann and poet Witter Bynner. The area includes the Amelia E. White Park, with a romantic arbor and roses, that Amelia White deeded to the city in 1966.
