Zane Bennett Contemporary Art, opened on Canyon Road in 2005, moved to its current 10,000 square foot Guadalupe Street location in 2008. The contemporary interior boasts a two story atrium with a glass staircase, cat walks and skylights. Owner and former artist turned collector, Sandy Zane, who wanted to support artist friends and colleagues while continuing to collect, calls the work they show "abstract and non-representational." Zane feels that "the viewer must be involved in finding the 'story' through his or her experiences and aesthetics." The gallery shows a variety of mediums and styles including film, video and new media. Besides cutting-edge contemporary art, they also offer hand-pulled prints and works on paper from noted "blue chip" artists such as Helen Frankenthaler, Roy Lichtenstein, Robert Motherwell and Robert Rauschenberg. The gallery holds periodic educational events such as panel discussions, demonstrations and artist talks that are open to the public.
- Contemporary Art Galleries: "The gallery shows work from the USA and around the world including Japan, Singapore, London, France, Switzerland and Cuba. Zane and her husband Ned Bennett attend art fairs around the world to discover new artists to show and represent."
- Best for Contemporary Art Galleries Because: Zane Bennett is one of the most cutting-edge contemporary galleries in Santa Fe. They mix "blue chip" with mid-century modernists.
