Outstanding service; compelling art
May 2020
When I found a painting online by Antoinette Thompson that I was interested in, Gregory was so very helpful and professional in processing the sale and shipment. Then he also coordinated with the artist for the creation of a companion piece!! Stunning imagery by an up-and-coming Navajo artist. I love her work. Thank-you Gregory for making this all happen.

Awesome Gallery
Feb 2018 • Family
FaraHNHeight has an incredible collection of modern and contemporary Native American artwork. Greg, the owner, is very knowledgeable and is obviously passionate about the art and artists he represents. We love the Craig George painting as well as Ledger Art pieces that we bought from him.

Fresh!
Jun 2017 • Solo
This gallery was like a breath of fresh air after visiting so many others. The art featured was raw and edgy and gave new life to the Native art scene. The fusion of Native, Latino and Southwestern culture is palpable and left me with a better understanding of the area influence. The owner, Greg, was very informative and took great pride in the work he featured and he was nice to look at too! 😉

A must-see in Taos
Jun 2017 • Solo
My favorite gallery in Taos! Filled to the brim with incredible Native American art - much of which was created by artists local to Taos or other parts of New Mexico. Visiting Farahnheight is a total delight to the senses, and it seems every time I stop by there’s new art to check out. Greg the manager is full of fascinating information about the art and local history. Don’t miss this place!

FREE Art history date with the adorable Gregory Farah.
Oct 2016 • Couples
The gallery itself will take you about 30 minutes to tour if you actually "look" at all of the art. It is art that is about region specific native work and showcases from every era including current artists.

It has giant teal front doors that are hiding one of the grandest installations that no one actually sees hanging on the wall. (And this is my inside secret scoop for you) That secret is Gregory himself, a man who is almost woven in to the building itself, (his name is literally on the sign, his last name is the Farah part). If he is not meeting with guests he is usually perched behind a laptop computer that looks like it's been lovingly painted with marker, tapping his life dream out to social media and managing a small business. Yes he is on Instagram.

Art is his calling and Gregory is versed specifically on the details of native art knowledge and in his own style able to share many details with you. He also knows a thing or two about native art investment. If you and your date like to chat and learn new perspectives, make time to be enchanted by the artistic yum-factor of this stop.

When asking him about local art history, you should quote "My reviewer friend Mickey said I should talk to you about the Taos Twelve" and he will unfold some of the influences of artists in Taos that will give you a greater perspective on what the art style IS that you're seeing in all of New Mexico. I am not promising a Marc Simmons experience by any stretch of the imagination, but I am promising a boyish, almost hippie version of something that is quite magnificent -a willing playmate on the current and past heartbeat of art from Taos. Maybe bring him a treat, it looks like he eats lunch at his desk.

Don't miss this GEM!

Run, don't walk to FaraHNHeight Fine Art in Taos, NM. If you are a local and haven't been in yet, finish those enchiladas at Michael's Kitchen (which happens to be practically across the street) and stop in to check out their extensive collection of Contemporary Native Art truly rooted in time and place. If you are visiting from as near as Santa Fe or as far as Germany (where Native Art is extremely popular), this place is a "must." Though relatively new on the scene, this gallery features everything from jewelry and pottery to large scale paintings and sculpture from both established artists and relative newcomers. It is obvious that the gallery director Greg Farah, knows the native art scene backwards and forwards and is approaching this genre in a new and interesting way. He is knowledgeable about not only the art displayed in the gallery, but about its context and place in the art historical canon. I spent a lot of time looking at the featured show in the open, airy, large gallery to the rear of the building. This space mostly features one or more contemporary native artists that really shine in what they do. With a decidedly more "street art" appeal, the art of Jaycee Beyale with its central figures surrounded by brightly colored intersecting rectangles and lines reminded me of Russian Constructivism mixed with the modern portraiture of another featured artist (and mostly muralist) Nani Chacon. One thing about the entire space that really stood out to me was the use of intense and bright colors in much of the contemporary works - it makes for a space that is both intellectually stimulating and visually exciting. The prices listed on all of the items I thought I might like to buy in the gallery were beyond reasonable for the beauty and uniqueness of the art featured there. Ultimately, the gallery director said he would work with me on the prices of the many things I liked. I'll definitely be back in for that Navajo ring and some of the gorgeous original prints I was admiring. And I'll certainly be suggesting FaraHNHeight Fine Art to my friends, family, and anyone that intends to visit Taos, NM, although it is definitely worth a special trip.

Fine art and more!
Jul 2016 • Couples
This place is amazing. My husband and I stumbled upon it while visiting the house recently with our elementary aged children. I was a little nervous bringing my kids in but the proprietor welcomed us with open arms. He was entertaining for the kids and informative for us. The selection was outstanding as was his knowledge of the artists whose art he had on display. We saw everything from fabulous vintage prints, amazing sterling silver jewelry, contemporary paintings and more. There were additional things to be seen as well such as woven rugs/blankets and sculpture. This is definitely a place to come for the experience and leave with the art. When we go back to Taos next year I plan to buy more!

Best Gallery in Taos
Aug 2016 • Solo
Of all the galleries in Taos, this one is by far the best. This gallery is an exceptional example of modern Native American and Taoseño art. If all you do is stop by to see the murals on the side of the building, you will be amazed. Gregory, the gallery owner, is very passionate and knowledgeable.
