Visiting Santa Fe

Native American

Santa Fe offers a visual feast for art lovers of all sorts, whether you're a serious collector or a fan who finds joy in just viewing the work.

With more than 250 galleries to explore, you'll be astonished by the city's array of art, including traditional and contemporary painting, photography, pottery, sculpture, textiles and more.

Get a chance to meet some of the artists at Santa Fe's famous Friday evening gallery openings, which take place year-round but with more frequency during the summer months.

As you walk the city discovering one gallery after another along the legendary Canyon Road, around the Plaza and downtown, and in the developing historic Railyard District, you'll agree: art lies at the heart of Santa Fe.
