We love supporting local artists and are excited to offer a revolving presentation of work. We offer a zero-commission space where locals have the opportunity to show and sell their work. All pieces displayed at Rio Grande Body Works are available for purchase. If you’d like to be considered as a future featured artist, then please email us at Info@riograndebodyworks.com, and be sure to include website and/or gallery links, or images for us to review.

Upcoming Featured Artist: Than Tsideh

Our currently featured artist is:

Hans Christian Freni

Born in Austria and raised in Holland, Hans is a self-taught oil painter.
He moved to Tijeras, NM after running a gallery/studio for 10 years in Holland.

“I only paints with oils, as the material feels nice and familiar to me. I work mainly wet in wet, which means I don’t let paintings dry and then add more layers, instead finishing with the paint still wet. I get inspired by subjects out of daily life. Rather than copy photographically I like to create a certain mood or feeling so that you can see the subject in a new light."

Hans’ work will be on display through until Sunday, March 24th, and is 20% off until then.
