BOX Gallery in Santa Fe To Close
Wow. More serious news from the gallery closing world. BOX Gallery, at 1611 Paseo de Peralta, owned by Michelle Ouellette since 2000, and home to an emerging/contemporary program as well as hosting shows by some of New Mexico’s established contemporary artist-leaders, will close at the end of February, AdobeAirstream has learned. This follows news that Dwight Hackett Projects will cease holding exhibitions, and last year’s contemporary gallery closings by Linda Durham and LAUNCH Projects in Santa Fe.
Artists who have exhibited at BOX include Kathleen Morris (featured image; Flight/2007); Joanne Lefrak, Tom Miller; Kate Carr; Alice Leora Briggs, David Nakabayashi; Angela Berkson and more.

BOX opened in the Baca Street district in 2000 and moved to the Railyards in 2006.
