Esteban opens gallery in Sante Fe

Home Shopping Network personality drawn to American Indian art

“Santa Fe is a great place. There’s just a wonderful artistic vibration in that town.”

So says the city’s newest art gallery owner, classical guitarist and Home Shopping Network personality Esteban, whose Galerie Esteban opened earlier this month near the Canyon Road arts district.

Speaking from a treadmill, Esteban explains that he had always aspired to open an art gallery, but that he was finally inspired to do so by the history of the Southwest, particularly that of the local American Indian tribes.

“A lot of the art in the gallery is American Indian art,” says the Pittsburgh-born musician, explaining that he came to appreciate the culture during the 10 years he spent as a Phoenix entrepreneur working with an all-Navajo staff.

“That was the grassroots of why I did this — to capture the vibrations of the settling of the American West, with the buffalo and the American Indians.”

Esteban says he has a small place in Santa Fe and intends to perform at the gallery once a month with his band (which includes his eldest daughter, Teresa) and, on special occasions, his two younger children as well. Esteban’s entire family will play at the gallery’s grand-opening festivities, scheduled to coincide with Santa Fe’s Traditional Spanish Market celebration on July 28-29.

“We’ll have some fun,” he says. “We’ll be playing some beautiful stuff just to help set the vibration of the gallery.”
