Chimayo is pleased to join the huge list of “Things to Do” for art lovers in Bucks County. It has made displaying the work of Bucks County artists its chief undertaking, although the gallery also exhibits the work of artists from across the country. After being bowled over by the charm of Bucks County, Priscilla Gray-Stoll and Alix Stoll, the co-owners of Chimayo, opened the gallery in January of 2014, a year and a half after moving here from New York.
Priscilla and Alix are truly enjoying the kick-off of their new venture representing some of the finest artists in our region. Upon entering the gallery, guests are ushered into a vivid realm of beauty and inventiveness. Since its opening, Chimayo has received a steady flow of artists and art admirers who continue to converge at the gallery.
The aim of Chimayo has been to respect the ongoing aesthetic imagination of this area, offering superior and unusual work from recognized as well as emerging artists. Chimayo’s offerings include scenic landscapes, abstract art, graffiti art, photography, and plein aire, all of which honor the creative legacy that reflects the diversity of Bucks County and continues to inspire the work of artists around the world.
The owners of Chimayo Gallery have confidence that the hours that members of the community devote to enjoying and participating in group events is time well invested. That’s why Chimayo opens its space to inspire connection by providing a meeting place for fine art, education, recreation, and locally based human services of all kinds.
That’s just a small sampling of what Chimayo has to offer. After visiting the gallery, you’re in the just the right place for a splendid lunch or supper.
