To celebrate the inauguration of David Richard Gallery’s new space in Santa Fe amateurs and professionals were invited to photograph the works of art on view. Over 450 creative interpretations were posted on Instagram and a panel of judges will select the best images for a unique exhibition at the gallery.
Museums, galleries and art spaces across the world use Instagram to share their collections with millions. In a pioneering move, a top Santa Fe art gallery will take it to the next level, downloading Instagram photos straight onto its walls. David Richard Gallery is pleased to present “#EmergeSantaFe”, a juried pop-up exhibition of photography from the collaboration with @SimplySantaFeNM Instagram. The opening reception will be Friday, February 5, 2016 from 5:00 to 9:00 PM and the presentation will be on view through February 13. Sales from the exhibition will benefit the participating photographers, along with emerging art group Strangers Collective.
“#EmergeSantaFe” is part of David Richard Gallery’s exhibition program DR Projects, a showcase for up-and-coming contemporary artists. DR Projects and popular Instagram account @SimplySantaFeNM challenged photographers to explore the gallery’s new space on Pacheco Street, in Santa Fe, NM at the #EmergeSantaFe Instameet on January 16th. Participants of all experience levels made over 450 images at the event, and a selection of these will appear in the upcoming show as a limited edition print series.
