Genii Loci. Go ahead, look it up. I did. Victoria Carlson's strange and excellent watercolors are about the impact of a person's vital signature on a particular time and place, and how that signature adds its own flavor to the morphic resonance of a place. Read her fascinating statement here.
Opening reception, Saturday, June 18, 6-8pm

Terri Rolland makes small paintings and collages out of clay and acrylic paint. They have a playful and subtle quality to them, and there is a meditative rigor in the way she lets the medium guide her process.
“I work with elemental and honed images: drawn outlines of squares and blocks sink into the clay and call for more layers until the right final drawing is accepted. The repeated images become a group, or cluster, as the panels are assembled and the painting comes together. These are groups of basic elements and quantities, humble monuments to continuity, standing together resolutely. They have a right to be there, things are fair. What I am looking for is not refinement, but a felt sense of rawness and informality - and sometimes mischief. I want to represent things barely visible or valued, but completely present and essential.” Terri's exhibition will run through June 8.

Micaela Gardner is a dancer and a painter. Her works for Small Used Paintings are an unassuming series of oils on found frames. At once playful and mysterious, these small abstract pieces vibrate curiously with reclaimed and altered memory, while enjoying the plain business of paint texture on glass.
Pop up exhibition:
April 15-27, 2016
Opening reception Friday April 15, 7:30-9:30pm
We have purposely scheduled the opening for later that evening so that those who want to attend Dave Hickey's talk at SITE can do both!

We are excited to participate in Recycle Santa Fe, one of the best recycled art shows out there.

We will be featuring fun stuff by Chris Collins, Yon Hudson, Ann Jag, Bonnie Joseph, Jennifer Joseph, Rick Phelps, Tuscany Wenger, and others. Trash to treasure!
Santa Fe Collective is pleased to present the fun and engaging work of Tom Appelquist. Trained as an architect, Tom makes paintings and collages in the abstract expressionist tradition that are dynamic, rhythmic and colorful.
Here's what he has to say on the subject: "These recent collages are made from what were non-figurative oil paintings on canvas cut into strips and glued to gator board. Somehow the pieces together take on a new life looking like woods or water or some fantasy place."
Please join us for the opening on Saturday, November 7, 6-8pm.

CROSSPOLLINATION is a seminal exchange from one to another. This is a cross-medium, cross-platform, cross-function, cross-section of work. Pollination creates a generational legacy - I am interested in how this relates to form and function."
Please join us for a trunk show of the jewelry of Lori Swartz. Rendered in sterling silver, 22k gold and precious stones, Lori's work has elegant and organic lines, is feminine without being fussy. Her jewelry is alternately delicate and powerful and each piece is unique!
Please join us on June 13th for what promises to be a smoking white hot evening at Santa Fe Collective as we present the fun and evocative social critiques of Michael Namingha and Hannah Hughes.
Newsfeed, Michael's new body of work for SFC, refers to a phrase or topic that sticks with him after his morning routine of reading or listening to the news. The recontextualization of the language highlights the absurdity of the media and its conceits. On view from May 26 through June 20.
For her performance, Beata and Maledetta, Hannah Hughes poses the question, "What happens when trickster twins go shopping?" This interactive piece will engage objects and viewers alike, so expect chaos and order to reshuffled in unexpected ways as normally repressed subversive impulses are allowed to surface. Fun, right? Beata and Maledetta will be performed for one night only!
Santa Fe Collective invites you to a sale of hand made and printed cards by some of our fabulous Santa Fe artists. Featured are Monsterfactory Santa Fe, Edie Tsong, Molly Wagoner, Thais Mather, Julia Fullerton and Jennifer Joseph. Fun, super affordable and collectible!
