The inaugural exhibition features new & recent works by Chris Martin that honor New Mexico’s landscape and its cultural heritage. The collection pays homage to the golden tones, the blue sky and the reddish tones of the land. Also on view organic sculptures by Michael Enn Sirvet.
Opening the gallery in Santa Fe, a global art destination, is a dream come true. The city is the only UNESCO's Creative City in the United States and the second art market in the country.
Nestled into the foothills of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, Canyon Road is a magical halfmile in the Historic District of Santa Fe. We have been working around the clock to open in time for the Holidays. We are happy to be a part of the city's art landscape and deeply humbled to open in such a special destination.
For the inaugural exhibition Prelude, Executive Director Antonio Cortez teamed up with Dallas Gallery Director Natalie Crosby to curate new and recent works that relate to and honor New Mexico’s landscape and its cultural heritage. The collection of works pays homage to the golden tones, the blue sky and the reddish tones of the land. Some paintings featuring sand dunes tones and soft metallic undertones reminiscent of the snowed river water beds. On display would be Chris’ mastery of his signature reverse painting technique done on acrylic and the newly explored honed acrylic; limited edition aluminum transfers and metallic prints.
The Santa Fe Gallery will develop a rotating program for artist working in sculpture. We proudly start with the work of Michael Enn Sirvet, whose abstract sculptures arise from organic influences. The aesthetics and clean lines in the works blend exquisitely with Martin’s precision and mastery displayed in his works.
