In the first light of the Patina Gallery's 20th anniversary, Patina’s co-owners and curators, Allison and Ivan Barnett, traveled to Europe for the first time in over a decade to Munich’s annual Jewellery Week. Fueled by the ambition to discover new artists for Patina, the Barnetts were astounded by what they found. With an initial goal of finding 3-5 new artists for the gallery, the couple returned to Santa Fe announcing at least 10 new artists.
