David Richard Gallery opened in Santa Fe's Railyard Art District in 2010. The name is an amalgam of the owners' names: David Eichholtz and Richard Barger. Both are collectors with art backgrounds who wanted their own gallery. The gallery shows post-war abstract and figural art from a variety of art movements including Abstract Expressionism, Color Field, geometric and hard-edge painting, Op Art, Pop Art, Minimalism, Feminism and Conceptualism working in a variety of mediums. Their mission, according to Eichholtz, "is to tell the rich stories of abstract art as it has evolved on both the east and west coasts of the US since the 1950s, featuring both well known artists and their lesser known peers and colleagues." Modern Painters magazine named them one of the 500 Best Galleries Worldwide in be 2013 and again in 2014.

- Contemporary Art Galleries: "While many galleries in Santa Fe only show artists they represent, David Richard Gallery is committed to "scholarship and connoisseurship." In keeping with this, some of their shows such as "1960s Revisited" in 2010 and "Bay Area Abstraction: 1945--1965" in 2011 relied on artists not on their roster."
- Best for Contemporary Art Galleries Because: David Richard Gallery, in the Railyard Art District, is one of the Santa Fe's major contemporary galleries.
