MONROE GALLERY AT ART SANTA FE JULY 15 - 18


Monroe Gallery of Photography is pleased to exhibit at the 2010 edition of Art Santa Fe July 15 - 18. We are located in Booth #25. This year we will be exhibiting new photographs by Eric Smith from his series "The Ruins of Detroit"; new work from Stephen Wilkes' "Day Into Night" collection; a very rare large format print of Ernst Haas' iconic "Albuquerque (Route 66), 1969", and several other special selections.



This year Art Santa Fe celebrates its ten-year anniversary. Art Santa Fe is pleased to once again present this well-established event to the international contemporary art community as well as Santa Fe’s own art world, now the second largest art market in the country. As in the past, we expect exhibitors and visitors from across the U.S. and around the world. Adding to the excitement of commemorating ten years, ART Santa Fe will hold the 2010 fair in the new Convention Center in the heart of downtown Santa Fe. This new facility boasts 72,000 square feet including 40,000 square feet of state-of-the-art event space. Courtyards and plazas add to the Santa Fe charm of this new “green” conference center.


Inside Art Santa Fe, viewers explore the best of the art world, with participating galleries from across the United States, China, Japan, Europe, and Latin America. Art Santa Fe’s style offers a perfect balance of breadth and intimacy, allowing visitors to speak to dealers and artists while experiencing a full range of art in a comprehensible context.


The experience doesn’t stop outside the doors. A series of events takes place in conjunction with ART Santa Fe, including our gala opening night Vernissage, and the prestigious Art Santa Fe Presents lecture that features an eminent keynote speaker from the art world: Roberta Smith,  Senior Art Critic for The New York Times. (Saturday, July 17, 6:30 pm, New Mexico History Museum 113 Lincoln Ave., Santa Fe)

Art Santa Fe 2010 offers exhibitors and visitors the opportunity to enjoy the most beautiful time of year in this unique and interesting city, a city that Conde Nast Traveler magazine’s 2009 Reader’s Choice Awards named as the third best U.S. city to visit. Santa Fe’s rich cultural mix includes performances at the award-winning open-air theater of the world renowned Santa Fe Opera, with sunset and stars forming part of the backdrop; and the Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival. Numerous outdoor activities take advantage of our ideal climate and allow visitors to enjoy the famed beauty of the New Mexico landscape
