ASF18 Spotlight – Pippin Contemporary
IN THE SPOTLIGHT AT ART SANTA FE 2018
Each year, the curators of Art Santa Fe select several cutting-edge galleries and artists for the Spotlight Program that are recognized for their skill and achievement in the visual arts. One of this year’s recipients of the honor is Pippin Contemporary.
Pippin Contemporary, founded in 2011 by abstract painter Aleta Pippin, is located on Santa Fe’s historic Canyon Road and is an uplifting world of vibrant color as expressed in contemporary art. “I was drawn in by the amazing color” and “it feels so welcoming in here.” These feelings, hard to put one’s finger on, yet are a common thread weaving throughout Pippin Contemporary’s guests’/collectors’ experiences. The richly sensuous visual experience is complemented by the warm, engaging approach of the staff.
Pippin Contemporary’s artists have been creating for a number of years, having honed their craft to a state of excellence. They are selected for their energetic and tactile expressions represented in their art – ranging from original paintings in vibrant colors to sculpture in stone, metal, glass, bronze, and kinetic.
Owned by an artist, Pippin Contemporary understands the importance of the artist, gallery, collector relationship. Collecting art is about that relationship as much as it is about the purchase. Often times, Pippin Contemporary’s collectors become friends who make it a point to stop in whenever visiting Santa Fe.
At Art Santa Fe 2018, you’ll see Pippin Contemporary featuring a collection from artists Rebecca Haines, Elizabeth Hahn, Phyllis Knapp, and, of course, Aleta Pippin.
