Adapting to a new digital world, Patina creates a new live video series on handmade jewelry, hosted and curated by the gallery’s co-founder & proprietor of sales, Allison Barnett. Each Friday, Allison shares a Patina artist's story, their relationship with the gallery, and then explores individual, handcrafted jewelry works. In creating this virtual experience, the gallery has found a creative solution to intimately connect with collectors in this world of the "new, remote normal".
Patina Gallery, located in the historic arts district of Santa Fe, NM has for the moment, like many other businesses around the world, adjusted to a fully remote workplace.
In early 2020, Patina introduced the Digital First campaign; propelling the gallery’s soul-stirring values in handcrafted jewelry and objects of fine art to their virtual frontier, presented in online exhibitions and exclusive collection releases on 
Building upon the Digital First approach and facilitating consumer needs in this given time, the gallery has released a brand new, live video series, Mindful Meditations. The video series is hosted live by gallery co-founder & proprietor of sales, Allison Barnett, and featured right from her and her husband’s (Ivan Barnett, Gallery Director) studio home.
Every Friday, Allison takes viewers on a journey into the world of a Patina maker. Profiling a different artist each week, she explores their handmade jewelry works and delves into intention, understanding how and why pieces are made.

When you meditate you release love and ‘feel-good’ hormones, and who doesn’t need a dose of that right now? For me, jewelry is part of my daily meditation and I’m excited to share this with the Patina community in my live videos.” - Allison Barnett  
Join Patina on Facebook as Allison goes live each Friday at 10 am MST. For regular updates as new episodes go live, the gallery invites all interested to follow and like Patina on Facebook. If viewers are unable to attend the live viewing, all episodes are archived at the end of each week on Patina’s website
