Patina Gallery is thrilled to present
Barnett’s series of images chronicle his journey through Patina’s hometown, the City of Santa Fe, captured on camera from late 2020 into early 2021. Through his eyes, Barnett reflects on his Santa Fe during a pivotal year of difference.
A portion of the proceeds from Seeing the City Different will go to support Patina’s beloved custodians at the living history museum, El Rancho de las Golondrinas.
Award-winning, historical author and journalist, Carmella Padilla opens the exhibition with a foreword, featuring her thoughtful take on Barnett’s Santa Fe of then and now.
“Difference… In Santa Fe, difference is an ideal, a pride of place, a lens through which the city sees itself. It is historic, generational, and utterly individual. Each of us adds a new layer to the legacy of ancestral Oga Po’geh and modern Santa Fe. The gift of our difference is that none of us experiences the city the same way... In Seeing the City Different, Barnett finds grace amid the pandemic. For him, these images are a celebration and a thanksgiving. For us, they are a reawakening, a quiet reminder that, even in the tumult of history, Santa Fe endures.”
From the Words of our Founder: Ivan Barnett shares his autobiographical story behind Seeing the City Different.
