Shidoni Bronze Gallery and Sculpture Gardens
Located at the entrance to the 14,000 square foot complex in what was
the original foundry office. The Gallery officially opened in 1975, a year
which also marked the First Annual Outdoor Sculpture Show. It is the
oldest galley in the Santa Fe area under the same ownership. With its large
wooden beam construction and brick floors, visitors are invited to browse
among the largest selection of contemporary sculpture to be found in the
Southwest. The variety of styles is unequaled, encompassing abstract,
non-objective, realism, functional, kinetic, found object and fountains. Its
warm and friendly atmosphere encourages guests to relax, ask questions
and enjoy the beautiful surroundings. Works in bronze, stainless steel,
copper, iron, and mixed media representing over 100 local and nationally
known artists, are available for purchase and priced for every budget. In
addition, original designs in sculpture, tools, clay, wax, armatures and art
books are available for sale.
A beautiful enclosed patio area and covered portal are adjacent to the
gallery and offer the viewer the extraordinary experience of seeing works
of art bathed in the famous light of northern New Mexico. Sounds of
bubbling fountains and the gentle breezes of cool mountain air delight the
senses. We cordially invite you come and see for yourself the truly unique
and special place that is Shidoni Gallery.
Shidoni Arts Gallery
Shidoni Arts is an incomparable indoor and outdoor gallery devoted primarily
to fine American crafts.
SHIDONI ARTS is a gallery of textures and colors: wood, metal, clay, glass,
stone, paint, canvas, paper, resin and fiber. These and other materials are
carved, turned, bent, painted, fired, hammered, thrown or waxed into
wonderful objects that challenge the eye and dazzle the imagination. The
mix is rich, eclectic, joyful and profound.
Visiting our spacious premises is a sensory experience: a blacksmiths
gate, or a woodworkers cabinet interacts with an exquisite blown glass
vase, or a photographers digital print. Set amidst apple orchards and
towering cottonwoods, guests are invited to take a stroll through the
sculpture garden where one can truly appreciate the magic of Northern
New Mexico. Shidoni Arts is a unique environment equally suited to the
seasoned or the novice collector.
We look forward to meeting with you on your next visit to Santa Fe.
