The Chuck Jones Gallery–Santa Fe has moved to a new location, 126 W. Water St. at the corner of Ortiz. Our new gallery location is in a beautiful adobe building; the interior has an intimate and welcoming feeling to it with nooks and crannies to explore. We believe you’ll find it the perfect place to visit when you’re in Santa Fe to view all of the latest offerings from Chuck Jones, Dr. Seuss, Charles Schulz, Fabio Napoleoni, Mike Kungl, and many others.
Pow! Bam! Kaplooey!
What a night! The Chuck Jones Gallery hosted a reception for the super hero creator, author, artist and all around bon vivant, Stan Lee, and his protege and collaborator, Anthony Winn last night that was attended by hundreds (seemed like thousands!) of collectors and fans from around the globe. Thank you all for coming by the gallery and making the event such a big success!
Stan Lee, ever the gentleman, graciously took a few minutes to address the crowd at the gallery.
They quickly settled into a rhythm of signing & dedicating artwork purchased at the show.

In 1989, Chuck Jones' autobiography Chuck Amuck was released with much fanfare and critical acclaim. In a series of appearances at art galleries around the nation that launched the release, Jones was overwhelmed with the outpouring of love and admiration from his legion of collectors, fans and admirers.
One aspect of book publishing is the all important cover art, and in the case of Chuck Amuck there was no doubt who would be providing said art. Chuck Jones created this image of Bugs Bunny seated at an animator's desk, quickly animating Daffy Duck with the sign "Rabbit Season"; it is, in essence, a flurry of drawings as they fly off his drawing surface.
Released at the same time as his autobiography, Bugs Director: Chuck Amuck is a 16 field (13.5" x 16.5") hand-painted cel art edition. The line for the edition was created by Mr. Jones in graphite and then beautifully inked (with a brush) by him, it was then transferred to acetate sheets, painted and Mr. Jones then hand-signed each example in the edition. It is the perfect centerpiece to any collection of Chuck Jones art. Learn more about it here.
