Just a few minutes south of the historic city of Santa Fe is the village of Galisteo. Centered in the magnificent Galisteo basin, this all adobe village of some 250 residents boasts of an incredibly diverse artist population.
These artists, drawn by the natural beauty of our high desert surroundings and breathtaking sunsets, have made Galisteo their home.
For the past 17 years, these artist residents have participated in one of New Mexico’s premier studio tours. This annual event is virtually the only time the public is invited to tour the private studios and meet the artists that call this classic New Mexican Village home.
Much of the tour can be done on foot. The ancient cottonwoods that line the Galisteo River give portions of the tour a special ambiance found nowhere else in New Mexico. As you wind your way through the many studios of Galisteo, you’ll see photography, paintings, pottery and ceramic art, retablos, jewelry, bronze sculpture, weavings, many hand crafted local arts as well as tasty local fare.
