One of the most beautiful qualities of true relationships is to understand and to be understood.
GF contemporary is dedicated to finding art that is fresh, compelling, meaningful and unique. Owner/Director Deborah Fritz has filled her beautiful adobe art house on Canyon Road with an impressive mix of exciting artists who are serious professionals at creating a presence in the art world. The work at GF Contemporary shares with us a vision which creates a new way of looking and seeing. While GF Contemporary represents artists of a more experimental nature, and the spectrum is broad, what they all seem to have in common is a language that can be understood, and a lean toward the simple yet profound.
For most of us, the purchase of fine art represents a significant financial investment, but one that pays off in the daily joys and pleasures that art affords. Because the field of contemporary art is so complex, it is essential for patrons to find advisors who can accompany them on the search for art that is personally fulfilling. GF Contemporary understands that art acquisition is a passionate process involving the collector, the artist, and the gallery alike. Deborah Fritz concentrates the majority of her energy nurturing this exchange, striving to create an ongoing collaboration between those three forces. The ultimate objective is for the collector to feel engaged in an evolving relationship which ultimately results in a life enriched by fine art and the camaraderie of the collecting process. It doesn’t make sense to them for you to purchase something that doesn’t give you chills. GF Contemporary strives for the praise of the customer, because, as Deborah puts it, “That means we’ve reached him.”
An elegant veteran of the Santa Fe art world, Deborah Fritz is very active in the community, joining the Museum of New Mexico Foundation Business Council in 2007 and serving as vice president of the Santa Fe Art Gallery Association.
Through her galleries (she also owns GiacobbeFritz Fine Art across the street), Fritz has cultivated an international clientele and remains a highly-valued representative of the best of what Santa Fe offers to the world of art. GF Contemporary does not justify rhetoric to differentiate the artists they exhibit. It’s simply about excellent art and relationship building. The impact of the work carried at GF Contemporary speaks for itself, and here the relationships are long term.
