History of the Jemez Artisans Co-op Gallery
Jemez Artisans Co-op Gallery is a collective of seven local Jemez Mountains artists. The gallery was the brainchild of Tom & Joann Vandenberg. Tom made wooden birdhouses as a hobby. He showed at several fairs in the valley and finally set up a stand next to the old post office. Tom visited with members of the Jemez Fine Arts Gallery across the street and he and Joann thought it would be a good idea to form a similar co-op with other artisans in the area.
Tom rented the post office building from Emmett Cart in the fall of 2009. He met others who liked the idea and helped work on the building plans and ideas. Renovations were made and the gallery opened on March 17, 2011. There were eight original members of the Jemez Artisans.
Today there are eight members, and the faces
have changed. The current members share the responsibilities of keeping the gallery running.
The items on display include fabric arts, digital paintings, jewelry, ceramics, photography, fine
woodwork, recycled media art, stained glass & fused glass, and local books.
The gallery is located at 17375 Highway 4 in the old post office in the village of Jemez Springs, New Mexico, and is open daily 11-5 in the spring, summer, & fall,
and 11-4 Friday through Monday during the winter.
