Nestled on the Pajarito Plateau, at the foot of the Jemez Mountains in Northern New Mexico lies the once secret city of Los Alamos. Now known worldwide as the top-secret scientific base of the Manhattan Project during WWII, it is home to the Los Alamos National Laboratory and the city of Los Alamos. Creativity extends beyond this community’s scientific background into the arts, dance, and music. We invite you to experience the culturally-creative side of our unique community.

The Karen Wray Gallery in historic Los Alamos, New Mexico is a local independent art gallery that represents professional and emerging artists of Los Alamos and our close neighbors. We also provide painting classes taught by local, professional artists right in our gallery space.

Stop by and visit us! We are located at 1247 Central Avenue, Suite D-2; an easy walk from the Bradbury Science Museum. 

We are open Monday-Friday 11am-4pm and Saturday 10am-4pm. Taking a Sunday tour of Los Alamos? Just call 505-660-6382 to schedule a visit.




Featured Artist
Sheridan Brown

I paint large and I paint small. I paint representationally and abstractly, and my paintings range in size from 3.5 feet to 1.5 inches.

I have a passion for beautiful paper and vintage items and with these I create my one of a kind “Art Cards” and framed collages.

Color, pattern, detail and embellishment are important aspects I strive for in my work. I enjoy painting but if didn’t paint I’d want to be a glass blower!
