I highly recommend Art Obscura to anyone passing through or living in Las Cruces. Every time I visit there's some new antique or collectable with an interesting back story to ogle in this sparkling clean store. Make conversation with Deret, the owner, and he just might have something not on display you might like more. Better yet, he'll keep an... More

Each visit to Art Obscura I notice something I missed the last time: from electric landscape paintings to cheeky buttons and magnets, this store is FUN! The best part is the way the old and new are paired side by side: carefully curated collectibles from years past right next to the freshest, never-before-seen art made by emerging professional artists.

Off the beaten path but so worth the trip. Lots of cool art. And very neat antiques. Deret ( owner) is very personable and creative. This place is a very good addition to the art scene in Las Cruces New Mexico.

This is a great gallery with constantly rotating local art. There are many artists and galleries in the area, but Art Obscure has a great mix of traditional and funky type pieces. It reminds of galleries in Portland,OR.

Perfect place to go to if you want to look at some affordable local art! So easy to find a gift for a friend or loved one too, there's jewelry, magnets, and beautiful wall hangings! It's also fun to just go with a friend if you have some time to kill. There's always new things every time I go in,... More
