About the Gallery
Pippin Contemporary, founded in 2011 by abstract painter Aleta Pippin, is located on the 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 our guests’/collectors’ experiences. The richly sensuous visual experience is complemented by the warm, engaging approach of our staff.
Pippin Contemporary’s artists have been creating for a number of years, having honed their craft to a state of excellence. We chose them 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. As Pippin suggests, “their passion creates an element of surprise and beauty, offering you the viewer, an opportunity to reflect, to access emotions, and to explore your thoughts.”
Owned by an artist, we at Pippin Contemporary understand the importance of the artist, gallery, collector relationship. Collecting art is about that relationship as much as it is about the purchase. Oftentimes, our collectors become friends who make it a point to stop in whenever visiting Santa Fe.
