Santa Fe Art Week is slated for July 10-19
As the world awaits the end of the coronavirus pandemic, many people are creating their summer must-see lists. Art and food lovers should add the second annual Santa Fe Art Week to their summer plans.
The event was designed to celebrate Santa Fe’s visual arts and its status as a thriving center for art and culture. It was met with praise in its first year for its eclectic mix of both local and international artists.
The 2020 Art Week event has been christened “The City Different.” Planned for July 10-19, it’s a nine-day celebration of art and culture that will feature more than 100 different exhibits and events. Below are just a few of the experiences we recommend you check out.
Canyon Road Art and Wine Stroll
What could be better than a leisurely walk between some of the world’s finest galleries with a glass of wine or cocktail in hand? Slated for July 15th from 4-7 pm, the Canyon Road Art and Wine Stroll takes attendees through a portion of Santa Fe’s famed Canyon Road. In just half a mile, Canyon Road boasts more than 100 of the world’s most remarkable galleries and boutiques.
There is truly something for every preference on the art walk. Galleries feature a variety of artistic styles, including contemporary, modern, digital, traditional, expressionistic, Native American, and more. During the event, the road is closed to traffic, and many of the Canyon Road galleries stay open late.
Art Santa Fe
Art Santa Fe, the primary event sponsor for Art Week, is one of the most prestigious art fairs in the United States. During the 2020 event, Art Santa Fe will showcase upscale art from more than 50 international galleries. Collectors and enthusiasts can peruse works from well-known masters and emerging artists and view installations specially designed for Art Santa Fe and the Santa Fe Art Week audience.
Its sprawling displays inside the Santa Fe Convention Center will hold a treasure trove of artworks from international galleries and designers. The Art Santa Fe Pavilion will offer attendees access to thousands of paintings, mixed media pieces, glassworks, and more.
The [SOLO] Project Pavilion will feature works from emerging artists, photographers, and designers. Admission to Art Santa Fe offers access to both pavilions.
Santa Fe Cuisine
Santa Fe is known for its diverse cuisine as much as its art scene. Visitors to Art Week will find delectable food and drinks at every turn. From Canyon Road’s famed Teahouse, with its carefully-curated menu of international teas, to the fusion of art and food at Cafe Des Artistes, attendees will get their fill of Santa Fe’s culinary delights.
Event organizers continuously add new exhibits, showcases, and demonstrations to the festival’s wonderfully diverse agenda. Check the website for the latest additions and event updates.
