Patina Gallery

Patina Gallery

Patina's intention is to sustain the souls and lives of its artists, patrons, founders, and colleagues through authentic, caring, loving and compassionate attention, given in an environment that stimulates all the senses.

Operating as usual

Patina features the Flared Sketch Earrings by Daphne Krinos -
Inspired by London's urban landscape, she evolves visions of skyscrapers, fences and scaffoldings into wearable works of art.
Two quartz stones float in space, against an intricate web of tourmaline across a crystalline domain. Long, silvery spires at the head of each earring form a tangled labyrinth where tiny white diamonds perch on the surface.
In the ecstasy of fine design, art jewelry is born of sheer, playful dynamism.

Introducing Triptych Series II, The Seasons of Jacona:

Admiring the pastoral landscape outside her rural home, Claire observes the seasons change. Distinct light, color and textures arise with the continual turns of the year. In her wearable works of art, Claire captures these natural nuances as she leads the eye on a journey of space and time. Through this triptych, she communicates the frozen winter glister, the sodden energies of spring & summer, and the ember glows of fall.

Meet Triptych Series III, Spectrum:

Dynamic, complementary value becomes a playful exercise of pattern and hue across this triptych series. Purple and yellow, red and green, blue and orange. Contrasts in three transfix themselves into our fascination. Behold her newest collection as Claire unveils a blissful medley of quiet and bright, invigorating and soothing to the soul.

The Triptych Series consists of nine pieces, divided into three collections of three works- Peacock, Spectrum and Seasons of Jacona. The jewelry may be worn together or apart, and all communicate a larger, comprehensive whole, made in the image of a traditional triptych.

Allison’s Newest Curation: The Suzy Wahl Collection -

The work across Allison’s curation divulges in the inner passions of its maker. The artist’s fascination arises in the rich complexities of her painterly printed surfaces, and in the fluid spontaneity from its organic process when texture and color combine. Through Patina, Wahl reveals her abstract treasures of enticing and uninhibited caprice.

Hanging in the balance: Ivan Barnett’s mobile sculptures

#TBT To Ivan Barnett's opening of Abstraction in 2003.

Thank you Pasatiempo for your ongoing support all these soul-stirring years ❤️ Think of mobiles as sculptures in the round. The weighted components, hung from rods in perfect equilibrium, are often flat, but mobiles are kinetic, offering different views as they slowly

Q&A with Allison Barnett and Peter Schmid

Luna Park Necklace

"My father grew up in Queens, NY and spent time as a child at Luna Park, the original name for the amusement park at Coney Island. My necklace and bracelet, called Luna Park, are inspired by the idea of Coney Island, seen at a distance, at night. The moon is represented by bands of pavé diamonds set in white gold." - Claire Kahn

Amongst a peaceful, dark night, Claire Kahn observes and marvels at a spectrum of flickering and glowing color in the distance, as seen from the twinkling lights of Luna Park. A kaleidoscope of color in warm shades of red, orange and yellow gently subside into the cooler shades of blue as they dance with the deep, black backdrop in Claire's progression. In her discerning use of pattern, the eye enjoys the subtle energy of the work, as it reminisces on the joyous, yet mysterious mood of the moment. Against this visual confection, the maker imbues her work with two rings in white gold, embellished with a span of pavé diamonds. As if the moon is overlooking this fanciful scene, delighting in the gaiety of the carnival below. Quite an intoxicating work to entertain and tempt the soul.

Our 2020 Virtual Festival is Here! Then, Now & Always, 20 Years of Patina & Atelier Zobel

Join us as Patina’s co-founder, Allison Barnett introduces the Zobel 2020 Jewelry Collection

Our 2020 Virtual Festival, Begins Tomorrow August 14th! Then, Now & Always, 20 Years of Patina & Atelier Zobel -

This week, Patina highlights Ulla & Martin Kaufmann’s Golden Bangle Bracelets. Precious and agile works of art become a natural extension of the human form. -
"Bangles that are reduced to their utmost become so opulent, and exhale their own magnificence. When worn, they lead lives of their own. They lose their stiff look and begin to play against the wearer’s body." - Ulla & Martin Kaufmann

Claire Kahn's Moon River series includes beaded necklaces and bracelets that parallel the brilliance of the moon while its reflection sails the tides of water.

Pattern and progression follow a muse of ripples and reflected undulation, as moon glow bounces amongst the mysterious scene of night.

Luminescence reverberates in rings of white gold, illuminated by the effervescent sparkle of pavé diamonds as they lay upon tones of black, white and gold. Shades of white, gray, and blue cover beaded cords that are embellished with moonstone and topaz to communicate a Super Moon, Blue Moon, or the simple waves and vivid echo of a full, vibrant celestial body over a pastoral landscape.

On the surface, in movement and in architectural grace, the Kaufmanns enrapture the spirit with infinite possibility, yielding masterful works of art. Always evolving, on the move, they touch the heart with a collection to stir the soul.

Coming Soon! Our 2020 Virtual Festival: Then, Now & Always, 20 Years of Patina & Atelier Zobel

Allison & Ivan, founders of Patina Gallery, in collaboration with Peter & Sue Schmid of Atelier Zobel excitedly present our first-ever, multi-day virtual event.

Then, Now & Always explores the story of Atelier Zobel as an innovative revelation in art jewelry, the beginnings of Patina’s relationship with Peter Schmid, to where we are now, two decades later.

Today, on August 6th, Patina Celebrates a New Year of Soul-Stirring Works! In honor of this day, we share a note from our director and co-founder, Ivan Barnett:

On the morning of August 6th of '99, after 5 months of planning and planning, Allison and I finally removed the craft paper from Patina's front windows that face West Palace Ave.

We had spent the past 8 weeks, day in and day out “building out” every inch of our space. We were still awaiting some of our cabinetry, but we knew "it was time". From that point on there was no looking back and Patina took its place in the history of Santa Fe as one of the most prestigious art galleries of its kind.

We still believe that beauty heals, and that soul-stirring works make our lives richer.

Thank you to the Patina staff and all of the many patrons and friends who believe and have believed in us for more than 21 years.

Ivan Barnett/Creative Director

This week, Patina highlights sculpture, HooDoo Yellow Tower by Michael Bauermeister. -
A vast work of extraordinary size becomes an exceptional statement to behold. Bauermeister unearths a striking composition that delightfully balances grand presence with humble, soft artistry. Infused with an indelible grace that continually satiates the soul.


For over a century, artists have found their way to New Mexico, as we did, drawn by the poetic light, organic tones of the landscape and indigenous cultures. During the past decade or more, Santa Fe has become an important international arts destination and attracts visitors from around the globe. This allows Patina to present very sophisticated works against a unique historic and cultural backdrop. We have a formula that we feel describes the quality we seek in the works that we exhibit, "Patina = Beauty over Time." This might apply to Santa Fe as much as to the works we select and love.

Established in 1999, Patina exhibits soul-stirring clay, wood, sculpture, fiber and other mixed media objects. Our gallery holds a unique position in the field because we also show studio jewelry in the same gallery space with larger works. We stage them in a manner that allows 'aesthetic discussions' to take place, a kind of dialogue between the jewelry and different objects. We have always felt that great design should inhabit all the works that we show, regardless of scale. We look for quality of techniques, design and character.

With close to 100 featured artists online and in the gallery, and with many exhibitions featured in the gallery of all inspirational ranges, per year, Patina represents a forward thinking gallery located in a central and cultural hub of Santa Fe.
