Hecho Gallery focuses on art at the intersection of innovation and tradition. We work primarily with artists based in New Mexico and Oaxaca. Hecho’s goal is to create deep roots of support for artists and exhibit art that is both accessible and genre-defying. Our historic building at 129 W Palace Ave has been home to Santa Fe stars such as Leonora Curtin’s Native Market in the early 1930’s and The Elaine Horwich Gallery in the 80’s and 90’s.
Our sister gallery, Hecho a Mano, works with printmakers, ceramicists and jewelers from New Mexico and Mexico showcasing affordable art at 830 Canyon Road.
Hecho Gallery comes to you from O’gaPogeh Owingeh / White Shell Water Place / Santa Fe, NM on unceded lands that are the traditional territories of Tewa people who continue to maintain connections to this place.
Theft of Indigenous culture has been and continues to be a core component of colonization. As an art gallery, we acknowledge the extractive and appropriative practices that galleries and arts organizations have operated on, and affirm our commitment to holding space for Indigenous artists, and all the artists shown here, to speak in their own voice. Our existence as an art gallery is dependent upon artists. Our aim is to discard the colonial power dynamics involved in the relationship between art institutions and artists and instead operate from a place of mutual support.
