We are passionate about our art and our gallery. We first opened our doors in 2008 in Truchas, but as soon as this lovely old adobe became available in Peñasco we moved in!
It has been a labour of love on many fronts: the old building was neglected and beginning to melt back into the soil it was built from. Walls needed to be repaired and plastered (thanks to Michael Vigil), the beautiful wood floor had to be restored after years of abuse, and the roof was replaced. New wiring and a water supply were installed, and during Covid shutdown, we took the opportunity to install a new hanging system - no more filling holes in the walls!
The back gallery room is now the home of Gaucho Fibres - dedicated to showing local fibre artists, and of course - Lise's work.
We also meant from the very beginning to provide a place where some of the outstanding local artists could show and sell their work - that has been a great success.
Gaucho Blue has been likened to 'New York on the High Road' by so many visitors, that it's tempting to rename it, but our name is now too widely recognised!
Come visit us and be surprised by the ever-changing and stimulating work on show.
