“If you like Art....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

This is the best place to see a lot of styles, price ranges, and levels of talent. Be prepared to walk. Note- lots of people saunter in the middle of the street, so feel free. Apparently it's acceptable ;-)

“Eight blocks of art and craft for sale!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

Although there is a lot to look at, a lot of this art is quite commercial and pricey. If you are looking for something on the more Avant-garde side, then you need to head towards the Railyard district. That said there are some very interesting sculpture galleries, as well as a few places that sell pottery, woven baskets, and jewellery. The galleries mainly sell fine art for your walls. Plan on walking, as it can be difficult to find parking.

“Spectacular”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

What can you say about an art market that has 200+ galleries? This place has few rivals in the diversity of the galleries. Laguna Beach, maybe? It took us two trips to Santa Fe to get through the majority of the galleries, and frankly, we still missed a large percentage of them. It might reasonably take 3-4 days to see everything. You will find a public parking lot in the middle of Canyon Road, but we started on one end, and walked it to the other end. You will find some nice restaurants and a tea room along the way.

“Eye Candy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

There is so much to see here of all types of art, its impossible to take it all in almost. So, take your time and enjoy the beauty all around. Parking can be a little tricky, use the public pay lot or maybe the public transiet.
