The Old Church Fine Arts Show is a juried exhibition that coincides with the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta each October. We expect many local and out of town visitors looking for art and entertainment after the mass ascension each morning.
This year the Corrales Historical Society will be joined by the Corrales Society of Artists to produce this beautiful event and help maintain our historical treasure the adobe San Ysidro Church.
