We were there 2x - once on the Loretta van tour. Next we went back ourselves - and we bought a kinetic sculpture at the Wiford Gallery.

Art gallery after art gallery is interesting for a while, but unless you're really looking for something to buy it gets monotonous. Also, there's really no place to park, so it's a long walk.

It was great to stroll up Canyon Road, drop in on various galleries and then have illuminating conversations with gallery staff. As is always the case some art touched my senses more than others, but its always good to be challenged by different art forms.

Canyon Road is not only full of wonderful art galleries, it is an art gallery in and of itself. It is, to me, at its most beautiful in the fall, with the yellow aspen leaves falling and a crisp note in the air. I was pleased to see that there is a new restaurant on Canyon Road, close to Paseo... More

This is a street more or less designed for visitors and art collectors with galleries as the main attraction, but as residents of Santa Fe we can't stay away. My wife and I often walk, run, or bike down Canyon Road, just passing through or stopping at the Tea House. It's a must on a trip to Santa Fe.

We love to go to Santa Fe, and one of the things we enjoy is walking and browsing art galleries. There are many excellent galleries right in the heart of town, but just a short walk behind the St. Frances cathedral, lies Canyon Road, with dozens of galleries, from the very odd to the very fine and everything in between....

We have all heard that the art here is expensive. But I believe that the entire mile is a bargain for all the senses. There are so many genres of art, photography, sculpture, painting, landscape art, building design and architecture, jewelry, knit goods, leathercraft and Navajo rugs. In between the galleries are shops with lovely souvenirs, cards, stuffed animals, games,... More

So much to see and great place to get ideas. Wide range of prices. And several great options for food and drink. Lovely way to spend a day.

There are a few very interesting galleries that deserve a look. Overall, Canyon road is a bit touristy for my taste.
