What is Art*o*mat®?

What is Art*o*mat®? Created by Clark Whittington in 1997, Art*o*mat® machines are retired cigarette machines that have been converted to VEND ART! For only $5 you can collect paintings, drawings, sculpture, photography, jewelry, glass, mixed media and more -all the size of a pack of cigarettes. There are over 100 active machines in various locations throughout the country. Victoria Brown (that's me), and El Centro de Santa Fe are proud to host the first machine in New Mexico which debuted in February 2013. There are now machines in the Range Cafe in Bernalillo, the Standard Diner in Albuquerque, in the Meow Wolf Art Complex in Santa Fe, the Inn of the Governors in Santa Fe, and in Caffe Greco on Canyon Road in Santa Fe.

Happy New Year From Your Local Art*o*mat® Host


Dear Fans and Friends,
Wishing you a Happy New Year and a great 2018!
I've taken a few pieces from my latest shipment of Art*o*mat® art from Artists in Cellophane and a few from my permanent collection and arranged them in a 2018 sign on my flagstone porch in the gorgeous New Mexico winter sunshine. What better way to ring in the new year! Thanks to all the artists** who make such wonderful works of pocket-sized art.

I am really looking forward 2018. I've been enjoying success and buzz from my 6 machines in Santa Fe, Bernalillo, and Albuquerque since I began this crazy journey here in 2013 and though I can't reveal any details yet I can say that there are some exciting new developments coming this year on the Art*o*mat® front in New Mexico. Stay tuned for announcements....

Until then: be safe, be happy, and most of all, "Don't Go 'Round Artless!"

-Victoria
