Since 1982, the Santa Fe Gallery Association has been a highly-respected, professional organization representing galleries, dealers and museums active in the art community. Collectively, these entities form a vital contributing part of the social and economic life of Santa Fe. Members actively promote this diverse community and advance the business, artistic and educational interests of its members.

More than 200 art galleries and the talented artists they represent have helped to define Santa Fe as the nation’s second most famous art scene.

The Santa Fe Gallery Association is proud to represent nearly half of these galleries, galleries we feel stand above all others. With strong operational ethics, eyes for excellence and a deep love for their community, these galleries merit a visit.
