“Some repetitive art, but some very unique galleries”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013 via mobile

Nice walk with lots of galleries. Much to see, friendly gallery owners, limited bathrooms. Most pieces were nature or Native American in origin, so the sights got a bit redundant after awhile, but the unique pieces really stood out in the mix.

Purchased a great piece at Canyon Road Contemporary Art, Inc. Visit Nancy and her pup Maggie there ... super sweet!

“Great collection of art galleries”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

This is a great place to go to get a taste of a huge variety of art. Each gallery offers unique pieces. Try to go to the exhibit openings on Friday nights, it is interesting to talk with the artists themselves and makes for a fun atmosphere. It can be hot during the afternoon heat, and not all galleries are air conditioned, so I recommend Friday early evening.

The art is always changing and the people are very informative and friendly. There are great places to enjoy a lunch outside and people watch.

“Shop the Canyon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

Canyon road is one of the highlights of Santa Fe. Dancing Girls was a favorite boutique that transformed textiles from around the world into beautiful one-of-a-kind outfits.Creative designs had unusual jewelry and "world" clothing.Tresa Vorenberg Goldsmiths and Silver Sun were favorite jewelry stores. Amazing galleries of fine art and pottery shouldn't be missed.
