On the Town: August 8, 2014
— Santa Fe & Taos

August 9, 2014


Last night we went out on a lovely Friday evening in Santa Fe. There were lots of people enjoying gorgeous weather and many wonderful events. We walked down Palace Avenue, then to the Railyard Art District, and finally to Canyon Road. See the photos we took and read about the places we visited.

Sorrel Sky Gallery

A new addition to the downtown Santa Fe art scene, Sorrel Sky Gallery sure knows how to make a fantastic impression. Representing an incredible collection of artists including Ben Nighthorse Campbell, Star Liana York, and Billy Schenck, Sorrel Sky Gallery is a "can't miss" stop for amazing jewelry, sculptures, and paintings.

Sugarman-Peterson Gallery

We were drawn into Sugarman-Peterson Gallery by the gorgeous and vivid paintings by David Foley, which stood in contrast to the other featured painter, Neil Philpott, whose works are subdued and slightly mysterious - like the landscapes of the Northwest from which Neil draws his inspiration.

Art Gone Wild Gallery

Art Gone Wild Gallery had a live art demonstration featuring painter Ben Wright, who was working on a large canvas. Ben has been an artist since 1980, and his skill was on full display as he painstakingly worked on his painting.

Peyton Wright Gallery

There is a retrospective of Vivian Springford at Peyton Wright Gallery that opened last night, and despite the age of the works (the paintings featured are from 1959-1984), they feel alive and vibrant as if they just came from the artist's studio.

TAI modern

One of our favorite galleries, we visited to see the opening of the Monique van Genderen show, featuring a collection of stunning works. Ceramic and glaze paintings using bold colors and powerful compositions, they are perfectly featured in this elegant space. See the Vine video: http://bit.ly/X9verO

McLarry Fine Art

McLarry Fine Art had a wonderful reception last night to showcase new works by painter Peter Hagen, an incredibly talented artist who has lived in the Southwest for 40 years. Peter journeys around New Mexico looking for exceptional landscapes and vistas to paint "en plein air".

Karan Ruhlen Gallery

Karan Ruhlen Gallery held an opening last night, "Quiet Beauty", featuring Jinni Thomas and Pauline Ziegen, two amazing artists whose works are subtle and sophisticated. The staff and artists at Karan Ruhlen Gallery are so kind and generous with their time, and we always enjoy visiting this Canyon Road highlight.
