Selby Fleetwood opened in a historic 18th century adobe on Santa Fe's Canyon Road in 2004. Fleetwood, who'd worked as a gallery director, wanted a gallery that reflected her own vision. The gallery roster is made up of artists who "have a unique vision or style or love of materials or process." Mediums here are oil paintings and bronze, stainless steel, aluminum and wood sculptures. Clientele is a mix that runs from neophytes to sophisticated collectors. All the artists on their roster (about 25% from New Mexico and the rest from around the USA) are represented in both national and international collections. Rather than being show-oriented (they only mount a few a year), their model is to fearure work from all their artists on the walls and in their lush garden every day.
- Contemporary Art Galleries: "When visiting the gallery, ask about the old cistern from when this 18th century property was a private residence. Located under a trapdoor in the oldest part of the building, it supplied the house's water prior to modern plumbing."
- Best for Contemporary Art Galleries Because: Selby Fleetwood is considered to be one of the leading contemporary galleries in Santa Fe.
