Brant Mackley Gallery and Obscura Gallery announce a joint Grande Opening Reception of their newly renovated shared gallery space at 1405 Paseo de Peralta in Santa Fe, New Mexico on Friday, June 22, 2018 from 4-7pm. Located in the Santa Fe downtown historic district two blocks east of the revitalized Railyard district in a renovated historic building, the two business entities will co-occupy the 3,000 square-foot location. Obscura Gallery represents fine art photography with a special interest in contemporary approaches to the medium and vintage 19th-20th Century works. Brant Mackley Gallery specializes in exceptional antique North America Indian, Oceanic, Asian, and African art. The Grande Opening Exhibition will include a curated selection of each Gallery’s inventory.

The historically renovated building space shared by both galleries was built in 1932, and was home to the community grocery store called the Ortiz Food Store in the 1940’s. The second story addition of the building hosted the Mayor’s office during the Frank Ortiz mayoral term 1948-1952 while the grocery store continued below. The building also housed the Madayln photo studio in the 1970’s and most recently the Gold Leaf Framemakers in the 1990’s. Today the building was renovated as a commercial/residential occupancy and includes an interior redesign while still keeping with the tradition of the adobe elements and historical qualities of the region.
