galleryFRITZ, a dynamic new
contemporary art space, opens in
Santa Fe, New Mexico.
Promising to focus less
on the object and more on the happening, galleryFRITZ endeavors to inspire and
educate with compelling exhibits, site-specific installations,
multimedia presentations, video projection displays, and traditional art
programming. galleryFRITZ's working model of engaging a roster of rotating
curators ensures a fresh, current, and energetic experience.
Under the keen direction of
owner Deborah Fritz, this nearly 5,000 square foot “white box” interior boasts an
outdoor expanse overlooking Santa Fe’s new Railyard commons. This new space
represents Fritz’s third successful venture in the Santa Fe arts. Inspired by
an earnest dedication and passion for art, her galleries consistently exhibit,
with brilliant focus, a high standard of contemporary art. Her newest concept
promises to stir up the conventional gallery continuum in the country’s third
largest art market. Founded in 2018, galleryFRITZ is committed to presenting
emerging, mid-career, and established artists from the world over. Each artist
represented by the gallery shares in Fritz's bold and innovative vision of art
and equals her excellence in execution.
Owner Deborah Fritz is a University of New Mexico graduate who grew up just north of Santa Fe, in nearby Los Alamos. galleryFRITZ represents her third successful
Santa Fe venture in contemporary art since 2001.
A committed leader and volunteer, Fritz has served various non-profits, including: ARTsmart, as a
member of the board; SITE Santa Fe in the capacity of project collaborator;
Museum of New Mexico Foundation, Business Council member; and Vice President of
the Santa Fe Gallery Association.
