DESCRIPTION

A temporary exhibition that presents a window into the emergence of Santa Fe as a contemporary art center during the 1970s, as seen through a core group of artists whose work was shown at Hillʼs Gallery from 1970 to 1981. 

Now legendary, Hillʼs Gallery changed exhibitions monthly from 1970 until its closure in 1981. It was the first gallery to put Santa Fe on the map as a contemporary art center. What began as a homespun gallery of arts and crafts grew into a leading venue and focal point for a generation of experimental artists who chose to live and make their work in New Mexico. More than 170 artists in multiple media exhibited over the life of the gallery; first, at 121 Lincoln Avenue, and - from 1974 onward - in a grand and beautiful space at 110 San Francisco, which was deemed by Art in America (Summer, 1980) as “...the best place to see a broad sampling of good contemporary New Mexicowork.”
