Many of us love visiting art museums and galleries, but how often do we get the opportunity to slow down, take a closer look, and really engage with what we’re seeing? This immersive tour is designed to get us to do just that, all while enjoying the atmosphere of three very different Santa Fe art galleries. We’ll conclude at Kakawa Chocolate House and continue the conversation over tantalizing chocolate elixirs.
We’ll kick off the tour at Nedra Matteucci Galleries, a landmark Santa Fe art gallery. Housed in a sprawling historic adobe, Nedra Matteucci Galleries specializes in work with a Southwestern flair by modern and contemporary New Mexico artists. There, we’ll delve into an artwork on view through a handy method for art criticism. Next door, Peters Projects shows a range of fascinating artwork by local and international cutting-edge contemporary artists.
After exploring the current exhibitions at Peters Projects, we’ll head to Pippin Contemporary, a cozy gallery on Canyon Road that celebrates color. Through close-looking prompts and conversation, we’ll probe what makes art “good,” pinpoint what we personally respond to, and uncover what we value about art.
