Art Brokerage: Phyllis Kapp American Artist: Phyllis Kapp has been many things: mother, gallerist, mentor but throughout it all she has also been an artist, devoted to expressing her understanding of the world through color and form. Her exuberant works have chronicled her life, and have found homes in the hearts and homes of collectors from across the planet. Kapp’s passion for creation led her to start anew at 55, leaving her hometown of Chicago for Santa Fe. She had a dream to sell her art from her own studio along Canyon Road. She arrived on a snowy December evening in 1985, rented a room for her studio and dedicated herself to turning her goal into reality. Through the gallery she was able to mentor other creators, and encouraged all artists to follow their own paths. In 2017, with a legacy that reaches far beyond the dream that brought her to Santa Fe, Kapp made the difficult decision to close the gallery that has been an integral part of her life for the past three decades.
