Gallery Info

Eight Modern opened in May 2007 in a historic 1860s farmhouse on Delgado Street. Specializing in modern and contemporary painting, photography, and sculpture, the gallery is committed to premiering works by internationally acclaimed artists, many of whom have never before exhibited in Santa Fe.

In addition to its regular exhibition program, Eight Modern is available to consult in building collections for corporate and private clients.

Offering a confidential alternative to the public marketplace, Eight Modern is also interested in the resale of select works of art from the 20th century.
