The Contemporary Estate Collection
November 22, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Patina Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of The Contemporary Estate Collection, dedicated to the rare, second market works of handmade jewelry & objects of fine art from collectors and retired, legendary artists across the United States and Europe. For the first time in the gallery’s 20-year history, collectors will be able to explore the entirety of our estate holdings seamlessly in one place.
The exhibition opens Friday, November 22nd, 2019 with a gallery reception from 5-7 pm MST at 131 W Palace Avenue in Downtown Santa Fe.
Due to the nature of the estate works, they are a piece of time in which they were conceived. Characteristics such as style, material, and techniques used, allow the works to charter a particular time in the life of its artist. The market these pieces thrive in and the pieces themselves tell stories that live past the complex making process. The longevity of the work’s significance and its lasting beauty impart this to Patina’s Contemporary Estate Collection: There isn’t a shelf life to great art.
“Patina has been entrusted with personal and very astute collections. These pieces have given joy and pleasure to their collectors and they now go back into the world as rarified and coveted treasures with their own unique history.” – Patina’s director, Ivan Barnett
