SANTA FE, N.M. [December 10, 2012] – We are pleased to announce that 2013 marks the 20 year anniversary for Blue Rain Gallery—an accomplishment not shared by many other locally-owned galleries in New Mexico. Blue Rain Gallery, a premier Contemporary Native American art gallery, has earned a reputation on a national scale as a leading source for contemporary and regional fine art. In honor of this prestigious milestone, we have planned a series of special shows and events for the entire year, to be celebrated in our flagship gallery in Santa Fe, New Mexico, as well as, our satellite gallery in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Superior art is vital to our existence, and for 20 years Blue Rain Gallery has steadily plotted a path of excellence. Entrepreneur, Leroy Garcia (a Taos, NM native), founded the gallery with a passion and dedication to growing the business while simultaneously spurring the careers of many talented artists. Blue Rain Gallery has enjoyed a culture of contagious enthusiasm which is embraced by our artists, our staff, and our loyal collectors.

Please, do not miss an opportunity to share in this joyous year for Blue Rain Gallery, as we will recount our blessings from the last twenty years and put forth an exciting program of events for 2013. Most importantly, we invite you to participate in our next 20 years of business!
