Price Dewey Galleries
On the second floor of the historic Catron Building in Santa Fe is the spacious and beautifully lit Price Dewey Galleries. When Victoria Price bought the Dewey Gallery in 2003 and rechristened it, she also expanded the original gallery’s emphasis on Native American textiles, pottery, jewelry and artifacts. Now on display as well are contemporary art and design like the totemic painted folk sculptures carved from fenceposts by the Navajo artist Charlie Willeto; tweaked traditional pottery (think purgatory depicted as a hot tub) by Marie Romero Cash; early New Mexican tin retablos; mid-century furniture from Scandinavia; and highly original found-metal pieces like the Carrier 3 bench by Tom Emerson.

Like many dealers of American Indian, or "First American," art, Mac Grimmer, of the appointment-only Grimmer Roche, started out as a collector. After moving to Santa Fe from LA, Grimmer renovated a historic building on Canyon Road and opened the Morning Star Gallery in 1982. Twelve years later, as the ﬁnest First American art became rarer and rarer, he sold the gallery and began to deal privately. Earlier this year, Grimmer invited David Roche, then director of Indian art at Sotheby’s in New York, to become his partner. Grimmer Roche’s aesthetic approach is encyclopedic connoisseurship (the average sale is $25,000). They deal in what they describe as "the top 15 percent" of American tribal art, which includes Plains Indians war shirts, Northwest masks and rattles, classic Navajo blankets, and pottery and baskets. The partners plan to open a small by-appointment space downtown this fall, "a beautiful white-wall gallery," as Roche describes it, that will continue to "take First American work out of the trading-post mentality, so people can see it as the art that it is."
