It was so nice to walk up (actually down) Canyon road. We started at the Tea House on top and walked all the way down to Loretto Chapel in downtown. The galleries had a variety of art with contemporary paintings to really cool wind sculptures. I couldn't afford any of it, but it sure was fun to look at!

Walking up Canyon Road and enjoying all the wonderful artwork was a highlight of my Santa Fe trip. Since we were there in April, we were able to enjoy a beautiful spring day with flowering trees and plants. The artwork is amazing here; I especially liked the sculptures and studio with all the "whirligigs." It is really like visiting a... More

Loved visiting the galleries which showcased the abundant talent represented. I would need to buy a much bigger house to house all that I would want. Oh, and a very strong bank account.

One can spent a couple of hours walking Canyon Road. There are numerous artists work on display. You will a variety of painting techniques, metal work, sculpture, weaving, jewelry and glass. In addition to visiting the galleries , it's excellent exercise! Parking is limited and a portion of the road is one way. Worth a visit

Happened to be in town during the 1st Friday gallery walk. What a treat! Met with artists and was allowed to bring the well behaved standard poodle into the galleries and shops, while sipping white wine. Absolutely no way we were able to hit even15% of the galleries because we didn't arrive until 5pm.

Overpriced art everywhere! Very small/narrow street. It was interesting, but I didn't really enjoy it I suppose. If I were to go back, I'd pass. There was an interesting looking restraurant on Canyon Road, El Farol. I would have like to have tried it.

I've been to Canyon Road several times during trips to Santa Fe, McLarry Fine Art and McLarry Modern are always first on my list of galleries to visit. The paintings and sculptures at McLarry are great representations of what is so special about Canyon Road.

As an artist who lived in Philadelphia for years, I have little patience for touristy art areas. I expected lots of pretty bad stuff but was very pleasantly surprised by Canyon Road. You could hang out at the bottom of the road and see some very nice work within an hour. If you have more time, just walk all the... More

Canyon Road is an amazing venue for some of the best art in the US, with every medium and style imaginable. Gallery opening nights are especially fun. Don't miss The Tea House at the east end for a great cup of tea or lunch.
