Tour - Los Ranchos de Albuquerque Art Foundry

6897 4th St. NW

IFMA NM will be hosting a tour of the 2 year old Los Ranchos de Albuquerque Art Foundry. The Foundry sprang out of the former Shidoni Foundry in Tesuque and is carrying on  Shidoni’s tradition of making “grand scale” casts, such as a huge bucking bronco, with a rider, that will be finished in Albuquerque and then shipped out of state.. The group also recently finished a live size sculpture of Saint Juan Diego for the Mission San Juan Diego in Meadow Lake, NM.
DuWayne Blankley, Josh Ybarra and David Miles and Alex Johnson-Donnatelli are continuing Shidoni’s 40 year plus history as a bronze-pouring foundry and sculpture gallery and will be doing a bronze pour during the tour.
Shidoni was a well-known mainstay in Santa Fe, as both a tourist attraction, with its sculpture garden and public pourings, and as a functioning foundry that produced pieces for the likes of Allan Houser and Glenna Goodacre.


Please join us for a great experience and see a pour first hand of a sculpture in the making.  These beautiful pieces are located throughout New Mexico and other locations.  Please make sure to wear closed toe shoes during this tour.


Social - Join IFMA NM after the tour with a Happy Hour at Jon Young’s ABQ BBQ for drinks and appetizers
