From Virtual to Reality: @SimplySantaFe’s First Instagram Exhibition
With more than 300 million users around the globe, the photo-sharing social network Instagram has secured a place among the world’s most relevant social media channels. Santa Feans are proudly represented on the network, and on Sept. 12, a juried exhibition featuring the very best Instagram images of our beloved city will open at the ART.i.factory gallery inside Art.i.fact consignment boutique.
- Location: Art.i.fact, 930 Baca Street, Suite C
- Opening Reception: 4 – 7 p.m. Saturday,
12, featuring a raffle for prizes, including dinner for two at Luminaria
- Show dates: Sept. 12 – Oct. 31
The show is the brainchild of Caitlin Jenkins and Amy Tischler, curators of @SimplySantaFeNM, who recently achieved a major milestone by reaching 5,000 followers on their photo sharing account. Inspired by their followers, they decided to find a space where Instagram images could be showcased as fine art.
@SimplySantaFeNM was founded by Caitlin and Amy in December 2014 after the two met through Instagram. They bonded instantly over their love for photography, their hometown, and Instagram itself. Santa Fe — with its unique sense of community, local events, businesses, and organizations — is well-represented on Instagram, and Amy and Caitlin saw an opportunity to further connect the community.
