Pippin Contemporary, founded May 2011 by Aleta Pippin, is committed to showing artwork that is, at once, fresh and vibrant, as well as collectible. Words most often heard by guests who enter Pippin Contemporary are "I was drawn in by the amazing color" and "it feels so good in here." These feelings are standard, hard to put one's finger on, yet a common thread weaving throughout our guests/collectors experience.
Pippin Contemporary's artists are selected for their energetic and tactile expressions. Each artist celebrates life with colorful and authentic insights, expanding the realm of possibilities in their artwork. Their expressions range from abstraction to colorful landscapes and abstracted figurative paintings, Pop art, glass sculpture, kinetic sculpture, colorful steel and bronze pieces - all exhibiting the passion our artists feel about their artwork. How that passion translates creates an element of surprise, offering the viewer a venue through which to access their emotions, transporting themselves to their inner worlds.
Owned by an artist, we at Pippin Contemporary understand the importance of the artist, gallery, collector relationship. Collecting art is about that relationship as much as it is about the purchase. Oftentimes, our collectors become friends who make it a point to stop in whenever visiting Santa Fe.
