The gallery is inviting and warm purposely furnished and designed to give anyone walking through the door a sense of home, says John Strong who has had the gallery with partner Carlos Acosta for five years. "We wanted people to feel that they stepped into someones home and could feel how the art would work in their own spaces."

There are comfortable sitting areas, vintage rugs, handsome early New Mexico furnishings - all exuding a warm, earthy patina.
Archways lead you from room to room..
And the pottery and paintings are mingled throughout the gallery each complimenting the other. "When Lyn joined the gallery people started seeing and relating to the paintings differently," says Linda Nader, a fine art restorer and conservator. And her background as a restorer allows her to talk in depth about the pottery - Lyn Fox lives in Florida and is only in the gallery when he is doing a special show - as well as the paintings.
"The gallery is music for the eyes," says Nader. We let everyone meander through the gallery on their own. And if they show an interest in a particular painting or have a question, we're right there to help them.
