"Santa Fe is 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 solid stretch of a mile 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 art. Whether you're a collector of abstract, realism, modernism, pop art, you will find something you love in one of our Santa Fe galleries.
Santa Fe is famous for its Friday night art openings, when galleries celebrate the opening of a show by throwing open their doors and inviting the public to meet the artist and enjoy food and drinks. 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."
