Wade Wilson Art Announces New Gallery Opening in Santa Fe, June 29

Wade Wilson Art of Houston announces the opening of its second gallery in Santa Fe, New Mexico this summer. The grand opening will take place on Friday, June 29, 2012 from 5:30 – 8:00 p.m. Now sharing two major art cities, Wade Wilson Art exhibits a roster of 27 extraordinary contemporary artists whose work explores the use of light, color and abstraction. Located in the historic lower Canyon Road arts district at 409 Canyon Road, Wade Wilson Art Santa Fewill feature a full season of exhibitions in addition to shows in Houston.

Wade Wilson Art Santa Fe opens with a group exhibition featuring Tom Berg, Barbara Van Cleve and Peter Sacks, among other artists. Native Santa Fean, Ana Gonzales Biele, will take the helm as Director of the Canyon Road gallery. Wilson will commute between the two great cities of art.

Wade Wilson first came to Santa Fe as a child with his grandparents and began his life-long love affair with this enchanted city. Far beyond his affections, Santa Fe is a city of the arts – visual and performing. Each year, more than a million and a half visitors journey there from all parts of the world to hear world-class opera and chamber music, and to purchase art as they bask in the high desert mountain┬ásun.

“Santa Fe’s season for the art business, while very much year round, hits its zenith in the summer months when Houston goes quiet to escape the Texas heat,” said Wilson. “We are delighted to announce our expansion into the Santa Fe market, one of the most important art markets in the country and a place that I’ve also called home for a very long time.”

Wade Wilson is a graduate of the University of New Mexico and later returned to Santa Fe to work as Artistic Director for the Linda Durham Gallery in 1987. Working with Linda Durham, Wilson learned the nuances of the art business, and at the same time as a published art critic and university art history professor, continued honing his critical and artistic writing skills.

Returning now with several regulars and a few new artists from his highly acclaimed Houston gallery, Wilson plans to make Santa Fe an equally important component to his roster. With galleries in both cities, Wade Wilson Art will offer some of the very best in contemporary art from around the globe, and will now be a destination for art lovers on Canyon Road. Wade Wilson is thrilled to have the opportunity to expand the vision of his gallery to New Mexico.
