ViVO Contemporary shows the work of outstanding Santa Fe artists in an elegant two-level gallery on historic Canyon Road in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Collectors and visitors tell us they especially appreciate the gallery’s adventurousness, high-quality contemporary work, and stylish presentation.
We support our artists in following their creative process where it leads them, and the result is a unique ensemble of work. Mediums range from painting and printmaking to handmade paper sculpture incorporating local found materials; from book arts and kiln glass to collage, assemblage and sculpture.
ViVO also experiments with unusual artistic projects, including an annual collaboration between our artists and an award-winning group of local poets. In Giving Voice to Image, each ViVO artist is paired with a poet, who visits the artist’s studio, gets to know the artist’s work, and writes a poem inspired by that. Every spring, ViVO shows the poems next to the works that inspired the writers, holds several poetry readings, and publishes a book of the poems and corresponding images. Giving Voice to Image inspires the artists and poets involved and brings Santa Fe’s cross-disciplinary creativity to a wider community.
