Art House, the public exhibition venue of the digital art collection of the Carl & Marilynn Thoma Art Foundation, has been chosen by the staff of the Santa Fe Reporter as the second best gallery on Santa Fe’s art-packed Canyon Road.

From the Santa Fe Reporter:
“Carl and Marilynn Thoma (of the Carl and Marilynn Thoma Art Foundation, natch) have collected art since the 1970s, and with Art House—technically just off Canyon on Delgado Street—they provide a space to showcase pieces from their digital collection. We were beyond blown-away by last year’s Digital Artifacts, a small but powerful group showing at the intersection of digital creativity, found and reconstructed media and computer programming. The most recent exhibit, People on the Fly by artists Christa Sommerer and Laurent Mignonneau, makes jaw-dropping use of a proprietary algorithm that may help researchers discover new worlds within particle physics. In other words: This is the next level, and the next level is good.” – Alex De Vore, Culture Editor.
