Map of Santa Fe’s Canyon Road Art Galleries
Zoom in and click on any pin to see the name of the gallery, phone number, and web address. This route is meant to be walked. You can park nearer the Plaza; We recommend one of the larger paid parking lots because the city aggressively tickets expired parking meters. Or, park at Gerald Peters Gallery (for free) near Paseo De Peralta and lower Canyon Road. You can also park further up Canyon Road near Camino Del Monte Sol. Plan on at least 3-6 hours. Stop for coffee and/or lunch at either Manolla Cafe or Caffe Greco on lower Canyon Road. And don’t forget to visit Meow Wolf (near Jackalope) just off Cerrillos Rd.
Taos, New Mexico
Taos has an exciting and vibrant art scene. What’s more, the drive North from Santa Fe to Taos is a work of art in itself. You travel close to the Rio Grande as it cuts a path through tall volcanic cliffs along Route 68 until you climb a short rise outside Pilar to a rest stop at the top featuring majestic views of Wheeler Peak and the Rio Grande Gorge below. Stop at Taos Drums a short distance away. Then, in Ranchos de Taos (just outside Taos proper) visit the iconic Saint Francis Church. The back of the church, which is the visible side from the road, has been photographed and painted repeatedly by artists ranging from Ansel Adams to Georgia O’Keefe.
Here is a list of Taos art galleries we feel are the best in the area. The majority are concentrated in the downtown / plaza area which is small enough to walk comfortably.
