Linda Durham Contemporary Art
Santa Fe, NM 87505
For thirty years, this gallery has been devoted to the representation of paintings, sculpture, photography and other art forms created by New Mexico-based artists.
We have worked and played to create a special spirit here, one that speaks to the importance of Art and Community. We are interested in meaningful dialogue, and original ideas. Our mission, (my mission), is the never-ending search for and rescue of Truth and Beauty. It may sound boastful or silly or not germane to the business of running a contemporary art gallery in the 21st century. Still, that's it for me. As part of this ongoing search and rescue (lo these several decades) we have exhibited the art that defines us by participating in more than forty art exhibitions throughout the United States and abroad. We have made friends with curators, museum directors, artists, collectors, gallerists and others who swim, skip or tip toe through the wild and unpredictable thicket that is the Art World. As the world turns and as we all continue to wrestle with problems and situations and conditions that may or may not be within our control, I invite you to contact us and
to consider what is on our walls, in our sculpture "gardens" and on our website. I believe we all have an opportunity to improve our lives and to elevate our spirits through the fascinating activity of looking at (exploring) art, of seeing what is there, and of embracing and choosing what is truly valid to us, what moves us. Neither time, nor money should keep us from finding a personal way of participating in the world of Art. It is important to consider that Art can create bridges of understanding between all sorts of groups, everywhere. It is my abiding belief that real art has within it the power to heal, to inspire, to comfort.
"Linda Durham Contemporary Art has showcased paintings, sculpture, and photography of, primarily, New Mexico-based artists. This community minded gallery has become highly regarded and it's artists highly sought"
