In this airy, museum-like space, you'll find outstanding contemporary jewelry, textiles, and sculptural objects of metal, clay, and wood. With a staff whose courtesy is matched by knowledge of the genre, artists-owners Ivan and Allison Barnett have used their fresh curatorial aesthetic to create a showplace for more than 110 American and European artists they represent—many of whom are in permanent collections of museums such as MoMA.

I have been shopping at Patina for more than 8 years. I can honestly say I love every piece I purchased, be it jewelry or sculpture, as much now as the first day I bought it. Allison and Ivan Barnett have exquisite artistic sense, providing their clients with unparalleled selections from world renowned artists whose medium include jewelry, sculpture and textiles. Their staff is friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Since I live on the east coast,
I cannot always visit Patina in person as much as I would wish. However, their website offers excellent photos of their current inventory and I have also made several successful purchases by phone. For me, every visit to Santa Fe includes time with Allison and Ivan at Patina. So if you appreciate fine hand crafted jewelry and objects of art, a visit to Patina Gallery in Santa Fe is a must.
