COVID Practices: We follow CDC guidelines and Local requirements; New Mexico no longer requires mask wearing in most public spaces, but if you want to wear a mask, that's okay!
The Santa Fe Studio Tour is organized and presented by the Santa Fe Studio Arts Collective, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Local artists engaged in creating fine art in Santa Fe County open their studios annually for the Santa Fe Studio Tour. This free event is a unique opportunity to see the artists' latest work and working environments. Many artists will demonstrate their techniques and all will have art for sale.
Santa Fe Studio Tour officials describe the Tour as a “dynamic, intimate total immersion in art where visitors can go behind the walls to talk with artists, experience their creative spaces and purchase art; all while enjoying the landscape of New Mexico touring from one studio to the next!”
The 2023 Santa Fe Studio will kick off with an opening reception on Friday, October 20th 5 pm - 8 pm at the Santa Fe Woman's Club, 1616 Old Pecos Trail. This is an opportunity for the public to meet artists in one place, browse a sampling of their work and consider which artist studios to visit over the two Tour weekends. Artists will open their studios to the public from 11 am - 5 pm on October 21, 22, 28 and 29.
