When you get back from Santa Fe, anyone who knows the town will ask if you've been down Canyon Road--this is where all the artist galleries used to be. I say used to be because apparently many of the better galleries are moving out, especially to the Railyard area of Santa Fe. A lot of kitsch is on display for... More

All of Canyon Road is a delight. Known for its interesting variety, art collectors from all over the world come here to browse and see what is going on in the newest art scene. You can easily walk from gallery to gallery, have a bite to eat in one of the restaurants, and spend a happy day doing so.

Ok, say you are like me and are not going to buy a $50k (or even $5k) work of art. So what! Enjoy the scene. It is fun to see what artists are doing and what will be available when the 99% finally revolt. There are high quality works of art by terrific artists. There is also a lot of... More

Probably 60% abstract or expressionism, 30% impressionism and 10% cowboys artwork. We found it very pricey.

A great way to spend a half day or more. Walk up/down the street and see all the art. Not for kids, not if you only want to buy touristy knickknacks. There are a few small cafes for food/drink.

Canyon Road is worth a walk thru if you wanting to visit the art for the rich and famous. Extraordinary art and wonderful galleries- very little for the small time collector. Important to remember that Santa Fe is the second largest art dealer location in the United States

Most of what passes for art in Santa Fe is highly overpriced, derivative kitsch. Save your money for the food and the better indian tourist items.

Start at the top of a mildly inclined road, and browse your way through dozens and dozens of galleries. There are also places you can enjoy a cup of tea or spot of lunch. Gallery owners are open and friendly; no pressure to buy. If you like a specific artist, they're happy to provide you with more details and a... More

Don't miss the art galleries along Canyon Road when you visit Santa Fe. The variety is tremendous and the prices a little better than around the square. Only her will you find the Wilford Gallery of wind art. It was truly amazing.
