Legends Santa Fe Makes Move to New Gallery Space Just in Time For Art Buying Season

"Intertribal Texting LMAO" by Frank Buffalo Hyde

Legends Santa Fe, a gallery whose mission is to positively develop Native American artists, is hosting a Grand Reopening party this Friday, April 1 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. to celebrate its move to a new, larger space located at 125 Lincoln Avenue.   The move comes just before the start of the spring/summer art buying season.  The new location is just one-half block from the historic Santa Fe Plaza, and is situated on the east side of the street next to the New Mexico History Museum.

In addition to refreshments, the evening will feature works of art by its resident artists Nocona Burgess, Carol Hagan, Jody Naranjo, Ryan Singer, Frank Buffalo Hyde, Stephen Wood, Adrian Wall and more.

Legends' Gallery Director and business partner Leslie May said “While we loved our previous space, we felt we could not pass up this opportunity to provide a better showcase for our artists in this dynamic location. Since we have made the transition to the new space, everyone has been incredibly supportive. We could not be happier.”

The new Legends Santa Fe 2,700 square-foot space is housed on one level, providing visitors a more comprehensive view of its collection of artwork by some of the Native American art world’s finest contemporary artists. With the new open and expansive street frontage location, the gallery can benefit from the foot traffic on Lincoln Avenue and visitors will have immediate access to all works of art by the gallery’s artist roster. The new Legends Santa Fe also has ample space and a flow that is perfect for events and openings.

So, if you're in Santa Fe on Friday (and who wouldn't want to be in Santa Fe?), stop by the gallery to check out the new space and the cool art.  If you can't make it out, the gallery’s regular operating hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. For more information, visit
