GREAT shop with friendly, knowledgeable associates who treat customers with respect. Great assortment of art and dodads!
Beautiful art and I really enjoyed being able to watch the artist at work.
What a pleasant environment. The sales girl was very helpful and the art was top notch. I highly recommend visiting them.
I bought a Kuba cloth from this shop two years ago and so went back this visit for a larger one. I spoke with Natalie and asked for something about six feet long, but she only had items at least twice as long. After I had no interest in those, she bailed, wasnt interested in pulling other cloths and saw no interest in working with me to get something that worked. She disappeared and glommed onto another couple. So, I went to Pandora, a shop with extraordinary textiles, and asked the shop owner is she had any Kuba cloth and she went in the back and brought out everything she had. What a very different experience! So accommodating and I found exactly what I wanted. Beautiful merchandise and wonderful experience at Pandora. Will go there directly when I return and skip Casa Nova.
An extraordinary gallery because it is so diverse, and yet consistent in a way. A way of quality and just an amazing eye for what's equally interesting about a 5th century Mayan metate and a 1920s traffic sign, 1850 Native American pot, and a 1950 chair by Nakashima. I've passed their stairs more than once (next to Santa Fe Dry Goods), and finally climbed them (a whole flight!?), and would recommend it to everyone. (Even better if you're a serious collector. Jed knows how to fill out a collection.)
I love going into your store. It's like a visit to 100 foreign lands with a cheerful tour guide. I appreciate the knowledge and helpfulness of the staff as they tell me about the history of the interesting artifacts and art in the shop. Carol
Ernesto Mayans Gallery is one of the finer galleries in Santa Fe, and specializes in approachable, affordable art of unusually fine quality and value. Gallerist Ernest Mayans is courtly, affable, knowledgeable and most friendly and best of all, does not have an ax to grind or a quota to meet. He will spend as much time with you as needed to make sure you understand and appreciate the art, and when you leave you will have the feeling of having made a friend. I f you are lucky he might even read some Pablo Neruda poetry in Spanish, while sitting with you under the apricot tree he planted 30 years ago.
