Patina =

Beauty / Time.


For over a century, artists have found their way to New Mexico, as we did, drawn by the poetic light, organic tones of the landscape and indigenous cultures. During the past decade or more, Santa Fe has become an important international arts destination and attracts visitors from around the globe. This allows Patina to present very sophisticated works against a unique historic and cultural backdrop. We have a formula that we feel describes the quality we seek in the works that we exhibit, "Patina = Beauty over Time." This might apply to Santa Fe as much as to the works we select and love.
Established in 1999, Patina exhibits soul-stirring clay, wood, sculpture, fiber and other mixed media objects. Our gallery holds a unique position in the field because we also show studio jewelry in the same gallery space with larger works. We stage them in a manner that allows 'aesthetic discussions' to take place, a kind of dialogue between the jewelry and different objects. We have always felt that great design should inhabit all the works that we show, regardless of scale. We look for quality of techniques, design and character.
