Art galleries and artwalks are part of the Santa Fe Culture. Casa Escondida B&B is a Santa Fe area bed and breakfast that is located in historic Chimayo, NM (only 35 minutes north of Santa Fe). So touring the art galleries of Santa Fe is a frequent and favorite attraction for many of our guests. Do you fancy contemporary art? Then the “Last Friday Artwalk” is for you! The Railyard Arts District hosts an artwalk on the last Friday of each month from 5 PM – 7 PM. These galleries present exciting, world-class contemporary art that is internationally known. The West Palace Arts District is in the heart of Santa Fe. They offer-up a visual treat for art-loving visitors by hosting their “First Friday Artwalk” from 5 PM – 7:30 PM. The Canyon Road art district is said to be “the art and soul of Santa Fe”. The Canyon Road district is a short walk from the historic Santa Fe plaza. The Canyon Road art district is home to more than 100 art galleries and specialty shops. They host their artwalk on the 4th Friday of each month. Santa Fe is said to be the 3rd largest art market in the United States! In total, Santa Fe has over 250 art galleries to explore. So whether you are a serious art collector or someone that simply loves strolling the gallery-lined streets of Santa Fe and looking at fun and interesting art, there is something for everyone. Would you like to meet some of the artists? If so, then Santa Fe’s famous, Friday evening gallery openings offer you that opportunity. The gallery openings take place year-round but they are more frequent during the summer months. At that time of year, it is common to have multiple gallery openings to choose from on a single Friday evening. In addition, the New Mexico Museum of Art offers FREE admission for everyone on Fridays from 5 PM- 8 PM. So when you wonder what there is to do in Santa Fe, put the art galleries at the top of your list. Casa Escondida Bed & Breakfast has wonderful rooms available throughout the season. We are happy to provide you with a gallery guide and a Santa Fe walking map to assist you in planning your personal art-outing.
