Cardona-Hine Art Gallery opened its doors in May of 1988 in the village of Truchas, NM, one of the most beautiful and special villages on the famous High Road to Taos (State Route 76). Many tourists and art collectors travel this road on their way from Santa Fe to Taos, often for the fabulous views, but also to find the studios and workshops of the artists and artisans who live in the villages along the way. Inevitably, people found us, and gradually the word spread about our gallery and our art. Twenty four years later, it is sometimes hard to believe we are still here and it is still magical!
Over these years, we have learned how art is as important to our patrons as it is to us. Most wonderfully, we discovered the reality of something we had known only intellectually: that when someone falls in love with a work of art, truly, at that moment of acceptance, the creative process finalizes. It is an amazing and magical moment, empowering to both patron and artist.
Art is humanity's greatest gift. It is what lasts after all else is long forgotten. We still read the Iliad, listen to Mozart, are awed by Michelangelo's David. Art touches us, it awakens us whether we make it or receive it. Our purpose is to provide you with our finest art work at reasonable prices.
