Intro
To celebrate 20 years of soul-stirring works, Allison and Ivan Barnett journey to Europe for the first time in more than a decade to build a vision for the future. Patina Gallery, known as an international destination for studio craft jewelry and fine art, located in the historic museum district of Santa Fe, NM, celebrates its 20th anniversary this year. As part of the commemorative experience, Patina’s curators and co-owners, Allison and Ivan Barnett, are traveling to Germany to join Munich’s annual Jewelry Week.

 
We are looking for great talent to present to our patrons, says Ivan Barnett, who is Patina’s co-director.

The Barnetts will host a reception to connect with artists.
Join them on Sunday, March
17th 2019, 11am-4pm at the Munich Fair Grounds, at
Hall B1, 1st floor, Room B112.

The visit to Europe will be the first time since 2005 that Patina has been a part of Munich’s celebration in jewelry. The couple says in their continued pursuit to support the growth of contemporary craft and handmade works, they are enthusiastic to meet new artists and welcome emerging talent to the Patina family.

Since the gallery’s founding in 1999, Allison and Ivan have remained passionate about presenting only the finest and most beautiful in handcrafted works, deemed what they call, soul-stirring works. Patina makes a promise – curator to the collector; for every handmade piece that’s staged in the gallery, it must pass a rigorous test… Does it have a soul? Is it great work? Do the gallery curators love it? This is a commitment they have kept for two decades. 

Patina artists include the master talent of Augsberg’s Erich Zimmermann, whose exquisite cocoon pods are created from an anticlastic technique to create work that is unique and extraordinary. Patina also features Konstanz’s Peter Schmid of Atelier Zobel who harnesses the knowledge of alchemy with unparalleled brilliance in design and technique. Spanish artist, Enric Majoral, is another remarkable Patina metalsmith. Other great works by European Patina artists include that of Claude Chavent, Hilde Leiss, Thomas and Andreas Hochstrasser, Jackie Ryan and Doerthe Fuchs, among others. 

With ongoing gallery exhibitions, an elevated online presence (patina-gallery.com), virtual exhibitions, diligent marketing & publicity coordination, beautiful works and above all – the integrity Allison and Ivan hold for their artists, being makers themselves – Patina Gallery is looking to expand their soul-stirring vision for the next 20 years.
