Show Pony Gallery is a highly-curated space that shoulders neutrality and yields itself to another; thereby explicating the adjacencies between identity, practice, and output. Show Pony Gallery is a space that is consensual. It is a space that requires your attention. This is a living, breathing, space that encompasses a true, intimate exchange between artist and audience.

Show Pony is wheelchair accessible .

Show Pony is sober space.

Please Come as Fragrance Free as Possible ( We do share a building with a hair salon and nail salon, however we try our best)

Timothy Jason Reed: Vortexing the Muses

"Vortexting The Muses is the inaugural show of Niomi Fawn’s new brick-and-mortar curation project in Santa Fe, Show Pony Gallery. Drawings and paintings on paper, wood, glass, and brick by artist Timothy Jason Reed fill the gallery space in this solo exhibition. Show Pony is a small space, and it is an achievement that the forty-eight works do not overwhelm the room, a testament to Fawn’s curatorial aesthetic and strength, with a nod to their interior design background. Fawn’s efforts to create an inviting and accessible art experience, which challenge and shift other visible art paradigms in Santa Fe, are successful in this inaugural show: Reed’s work is playful, contemplative, and wandering, and invites the viewer to explore the intricate space and form that his internal process takes when translated into visual works."

Brick-and-Mortar

"As I approached curator Niomi Fawn's new brick-and-mortar space for their gallery Show Pony last weekend, I almost had to rub my eyes in disbelief. There, on the porch, sat Fawn, along with local painters Jared Weiss and Timothy Jason Reed. As far as the Santa Fe arts world goes, these are some of the most exciting curators and creators currently on the scene, and here they sat, eating oranges. A warm breeze blew in lazily, magically.

Weiss, whose work SFR readers may recall as the cover art for last year's Santa Fe Manual, teaches arts classes at the Santa Fe Community College. He had just brought a group of students to visit Show Pony and its inaugural exhibit, Reed's newest series, Vortexing the Muses. The show, colorful acrylics on small glass panels that exist in a vacuum someplace between abstraction and cubism, represents a bit of a departure for Reed. He has been primarily known as a paint-on-canvas artist, but he says it's like the culmination of more than a decade of unconscious thought.

Something I Need You To Know

"Something I Need You To Know debuted on Wednesday, November 9, 2016, the day after the United States presidential election. During the opening reception, visitors staggered through the hallways of Santa Fe Community College in search of the Visual Arts Gallery. Curator Niomi Fawn, of CurateSantaFe, had installed a giant mirror on the wall just outside the space, with the show’s title running across it in black vinyl. This exhibition gestated in the long months of a vicious political campaign, when tweets and three-word chants ruled the discourse. Now was the time for a different type of storytelling—and an unsparing new approach to self-examination. "

Niomi Fawn

"I started Curate Santa Fe five years ago because the art shows I wanted to see weren't happening in town. This is before some of the great galleries and DIY spaces like NO LAND were on the scene. It was a different reality, and everything I was seeing was so bland and heteronormative to me that I just couldn't stomach the idea of going to one more art show that I didn't resonate with and that wasn't inclusive.
I decided I was going to start hanging shows and I left Meow Wolf (an art collective in Santa Fe, New Mexico). I got to a place in that space and time where I realized that if I wanted to keep seeing art by people I cared about who were super marginalized in the art community, then I was just going to have to do it myself. I wanted to show people who I was really excited about, those who I felt were doing phenomenal work but were really outside the machine, because I think the art world is very patriarchal and it's very violent. I mean art is awesome. Can it change the world? Yeah. But it's also been used to subjugate and program and commandeer people's free will. So let's get real here: Art isn't just this thing that's just scot-free; it can be a propaganda machine too."
