Santa Fe ranks as the third largest art market in the country, with hundreds of local art galleries offering contemporary and classic paintings, sculptures, photographs and more. Canyon Road alone is a mile-long swath of culture, lined with galleries showcasing artists from around the world as well as from the Southwest. The Santa Fe Plaza and the Railyard District also are filled with inspiring works of both contemporary and historical art. Whether you’re a collector of abstract, realism, modernism, pop art, you will find something you love in Santa Fe’s galleries. The city is famous for its Friday-night art openings, when galleries celebrate new exhibitions by uncorking some wine and throwing open their doors for the public to view art and meet the artists. Each February, Santa Fe galleries pair up with local chefs for the annual Edible Art Tour to serve artful food in a gallery setting. Other annual events include the Santa Fe Indian Market, International Folk Art Market, and the Spanish Market, which draw a combination of locals and visitors in the summer months. There’s always something happening in this cosmopolitan city’s art scene to spotlight the impressive creativity of gifted artists.
