Ne­dra Mat­teucci Gal­leries is one of Santa

Fe’s largest and most es­tab­lished fine art gal­leries, of­fer­ing an un­par­al­leled col­lec­tion of 19th and 20th cen­tury Amer­i­can art for more than 40 years. Housed in a me­an­der­ing 200-year-old adobe, the gallery fea­tures his­tor­i­cal South­west­ern art by artists from the early Taos and Santa Fe art colonies, and the col­lec­tion is con­tin­u­ally re­fined and ex­panded to in­clude Amer­i­can Im­pres­sion­ism and modernism. The gallery also proudly rep­re­sents a se­lect group of con­tem­po­rary pain­ters and sculp­tors of the Amer­i­can West. The beau­ti­ful grounds are an ex­tra­or­di­nary blend of art and na­ture; an invit­ing, one acre sculp­ture garden is a har­mo­nious bal­ance of bronze and stone sculp­ture, punc­tu­ated by a menagerie of tur­tles, koi and ducks. With an am­biance that’s both wel­com­ing and ex­cep­tional,

Ne­dra Mat­teucci Gal­leries of­fers a his­tor­i­cal ex­pe­ri­ence of Santa Fe and the greater South­west that cel­e­brates the ar­chi­tec­ture, cul­ture and its re­mark­able legacy of art.

The Santa Fe Botan­i­cal Garden at Mu­seum Hill will fea­ture Gar­dens Gone Wild!, an exhibition of bronze an­i­mals by award-win­ning sculp­tor Dan Oster­miller, which opens on May 26. The Art of Walt Gonske: A Ret­ro­spec­tive opens with an artist re­cep­tion Satur­day, June 23; the work will re­main on dis­play through July 21.

This fall, Ne­dra Mat­teucci Gal­leries will fea­ture a unique exhibition of work by Alice Schille, the renowned 20th-cen­tury Amer­i­can water­color artist.
