"A Different Kind of Art Gallery
in Las Cruces, NM"
El Jardin de Las Cruces
As you step into El Jardin de Las Cruces you notice that it's a different kind of art gallery. Not your usual paintings lined up on plain walls, but a mixture of color and local flavor; hand-painted retablos on interesting pieces of wood, unique hand-formed crosses utilizing a mixture of medias, colorful oil paintings, lovely watercolors, photographic works, stained glass pieces and so much more.
The owner/santero artist of El Jardin de Las Cruces, David Jaquez, is passionate about art and it shows. He has chosen the most talented local artists in the area to display their creations in El Jardin de Las Cruces.
David also displays a wide variety of his own creations, specializing in Santos, Bultos, Retablos, Metal Creations and Crosses. All of his artwork is very special, as the media he uses isn't just simply a nice piece of wood, but each piece is lovingly handcrafted from materials that come from old world southwest churches and missions in CA, NM, AZ and TX; which have been witness to hundreds of years of sacred events such as baptisms, marriages, funerals, fiestas and communal sipiritual life.
