Established in 1982, the Santa Fe Gallery Association is one of the largest such organizations in the United States. Santa Fe is home to roughly 200 galleries, museums, and private art dealers. Our members offer a breadth of traditional and contemporary art by established and emerging artists working in New Mexico, across the country, and around the world. The individuals who run them are known for their strong operational ethics, eyes for excellence, and deep love for their community.
Our Code of Ethics:
Conduct business with professionalism, scholarship and integrity.
Stand behind the integrity of the artists and the provenance of the artwork you exhibit and sell.
Maintain a Santa Fe Business License.
Collect and remit applicable sales taxes (Gross Receipts Tax). Operate with a spirit of cooperation and community enrichment
SFGA is a 501c6 nonprofit business-and-professional organization primarily for owners and managers of art galleries and art museums. It is funded by its dues-paying members. The association fosters professional networking, supports professional standards, publicizes Santa Fe as a tourist destination for art collectors, and advocates on behalf of the art economy in government and the community.
For many years, SFGA has published the ArtMap, a guide to all member galleries and museums. For 2022, the association brought back a larger map along with an enhanced online gallery district experience; it’s sure to become a collectors’ favorite guide to the #1 city for visiting galleries in the world.
SFGA is governed by an five-member volunteer board of directors. Click to see board member and staff biographies.
