,Verde started as a gallery that only featured local artists. Over the years it expanded to featuring artists near and far.
While I too am an artist I have a deep appreciation for the work of others. In fact I didn't show my own work for the first two years of the gallery.
The space was very popular and eventually I was asked to include other types of events. These included musical performances, dance events, and presentations related to the University of Illinois.
Fortunately as time went by I was able to include Hispanic artists from the US. They too were successful with my clientele. The mutual appreciation was evident! We ended up creating the first Day of the Dead event and gallery show in Champaign.
My visits to New Mexico eventually led to me moving to Santa Fe. Yep, I was bitten by the Santa Fe bug.
As I became acquainted with Santa Fe and and other areas of New Mexico it was clear that creativity was flowing like a river throughout the state.
While I no longer own a gallery, I do promote and assist artists with marketing and publicity and also feature artists I work with here on this website. I have expanded the scope to include artists from around the world.
