Chroma FEST 2012!

We had such a super great time at our 1st annual Chroma FEST! I have a few photos to share from both nights. If you missed it this year, no need to fret, next year will be even BETTER! 🙂 Friday night was our Art show/open studios event and Saturday was the Music festival. We are considering combining the two into one BIG event for next year. All the art and music was amazing! Albuquerque has quite an awesome scene and Chroma Studios is overflowing with talented artists and musicians! Enjoy the photos (both days mixed in together) and we hope to see you next year!
