This summer marks a special occasion for one of GF Contemporary’s most celebrated and collected artists, Pascal Pierme. Twenty years ago, the French sculptor found himself in Santa Fe and made it his new home. After starting his artistic career in his native France, Pierme chose Santa Fe over New York or Los Angeles
not just for its thriving art economy, but also for its unique magic.
“Santa Fe is like a grandmother with a teenage heart who helped me to find my path. There is
so much history here; it definitely feels like beautiful grandmother. But even though it’s old,
it has this energy and sparkle you may not see right away—but you can feel it,” says Pierme of
his adopted home.
To celebrate, GF Contemporary is hosting a special artist reception on August
12th from 5 to 7 p.m., and will feature Pierme’s signature work in wood, as well
as a rare selection of large-scale steel sculptures. Don’t miss this opportunity to
view the breadth of Pierme’s work and to celebrate with the artist himself. DJ
Sol will be spinning and drinks provided by The Liquid Company
