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, selected for their energetic and tactile expressions, present a range of personal perspectives emerging from a passion for depth, feeling, and beauty expressed in their art. Those expressions range from original paintings in vibrant colors to sculpture in stone, metal and glass, bronze, and kinetic. As Pippin suggests, “that passion creates an element of surprise, offering you, the viewer, a venue through which to access your emotions and transport you to 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.
