Cardona-Hine Fine Art Gallery

Search by Keyword

The Cardona-Hine Gallery is one of New Mexico's gems, known to astute collectors for over twenty five years. We feature the fine art paintings of internationally known and collected artists, Alvaro Cardona-Hine and Barbara McCauley.

The museum-like space glows with McCauley's bold New Mexico colors and Cardona-Hine's subtle, sometimes whimsical, sometimes powerful, but always patinterly, canvasses. McCauley's work is in collections throughout the United States, Canada, Israel and Europe. Cardona-Hine's paintings grace the walls of collectors on five continents.

We now also represent two sculptors: Marcia McEachron of Minneapolis, whose welded steel pieces are famous in the upper Midwest, with more than thirty public commissions in place. Her work can be seen at www.marciamceachron.com. And the ceramic sculptures of Steve Gootgeld, well-known in Taos where he lives and works, add a graceful and sophisticated element to our space. His work may be seen at www.gootgeld.com.


Having lived and exhibited in Los Angeles and Minneapolis/St. Paul, the artists chose to move, in 1987, to Truchas, NM, an old Hispanic village high in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, in order to have the solitude and quiet in which to pursue and deepen their art.

As part of their creative journey, they decided to abandon the conventional art gallery scene to share and sell their paintings directly to collectors.

Doing so, they discovered that the creative process is not only about making a work of art, but also about its being received, in order for the creative process to be completed. The viewer is therefore the end point of that process. While they had always known this intellectually, it now became a reality they experienced almost daily. This has had a profound effect on their view of their art and on their appreciation for their patrons.

Over the years, both the gallery and the artists have gained a reputation for quality, integrity, honesty and authenticity in both their art and in their dealings with experienced art collectors as well as with newcomers to the world of art and collecting.
