The Turquoise Trail Studio Tour extends from Santa Fe to Cedar Crest, New Mexico, traveling through the colorful towns of Cerrillos, Madrid, Sandia Park, and Cedar Crest.
The Tour winds through several mountain ranges, originally Native pueblo lands, and home to early mining efforts dating back to the 1800s. Today’s artists continue to honor the area's long history of creativity and appreciation for the land. As visitors wander from studio to studio, they will encounter stunning skies and vistas, and a deep sense of place through time.
Early fall is considered New Mexico’s best: warm days, cool nights, and stunning sunrises and sunsets. Santa Fe is known as the third largest art market in the U.S. and the open studios tour offers an intimate view into the creative process.
This is an exclusive opportunity for visitors to meet many gifted creators in their professional studios, and purchase artwork directly from them.
Many artists will be offering demonstrations and hands-on activities for the guests.
Observe painting, sculpture, drawing, photography, jewelry and more, including very large scale outdoor art.
A map will be available at participating studios and on the official website that enables visitors to easily navigate among the thirty-eight locations. Click link for more information.
