Tathagata Coffee --  55 Canada del Rancho -- is located in a quieter part of Santa Fe, on the "other side of the Interstate" from the Plaza and most of the activity.  However, it is near the Santa Fe Community College and the Institute of American Indian Art:

I'm also looking forward to getting a Conrad E9 press to bring in before the exhibition is over.  

Currently Robert Williams, founder of Juxtapoz Magazine, is also showing in Santa Fe, at CCA (until November 27th):

I also have another print show going on concurrently in November.  Mexican pop-surreal serigraphs at ACE Barbershop in downtown Albuquerque (109 4th St SW).

This serigraph by Smithe 
Smithe is featured in this month's issue of 
Hi-Fructose (Volume 41, November 2016)


Also we moved our Portland print show from Tucson to El Paso.  The mostly serigraph prints hanging are made by artists from Flight 64.
