HISTORY

Sketch by Clavio Designs and Planning, 2016

Obscura Gallery, LLC is pleased to announce our new gallery based in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Obscura Gallery, named after the original Camera Obscura, is founded on our passion for photography which is deeply rooted in the history of the medium. Obscura Gallery encourages the ways in which contemporary artists are using photography to create unique additions to the history of photography which began nearly 200 years ago.

The gallery was conceived by Owner and Director Jennifer Schlesinger. A photography dealer and artist herself, Jennifer brings to Obscura Gallery the experience of being the Director of VERVE Gallery of Photography in Santa Fe, New Mexico for eleven years. Jennifer’s career experience has led to developing long term relationships with artists, clients, and collectors as well as the local, national and international photographic community.

In addition to offering for sale the artwork by Obscura Gallery’s roster of artists and gallery inventory, we also offer collection building, consulting and advising, and can assist in many facets of photographic collection, de-accession, and research.

Located in the Santa Fe downtown historic district two blocks east of the revitalized Railyard district, Obscura Gallery’s renovated historic building will be open to the public soon. Obscura Gallery will share the newly renovated space with Brant Mackley Gallery which specializes in exceptional antique American Indian and tribal art and the two offer their audience a unique Santa Fe experience. In the interim, Obscura Gallery is open by appointment.

Obscura Gallery was honored a membership to the Association of International Photography Art Dealers (AIPAD) in December 2016.
