Tenth Annual Historic Canyon Road Paint & Sculpt Out

Saturday, October 21, 2017

Artists working in every imaginable genre and media will fill the historic Canyon Road Arts District during the tenth annual Paint & Sculpt Out. The public is invited to stroll the historic road and interact with working artists as they showcase their skills.

Collectors have opportunities to acquire new works of art at Silent Auctions and through private commissions. It's all here - contemporary, abstract, modern, expressionistic, figurative, photorealistic, traditional, western and Native American.

The Paint & Sculpt Out celebrates the generations of artists who have been creating paintings, pottery, jewelry and sculpture beneath the magical light, magnificent skies, and natural beauty of the high-desert mountains.

A festival parade with marching bands takes place at noon and students from the Santa Fe Public Schools Music Education Program will perform in the early afternoon. Music, food, art shows, and refreshments will be offered at locations all along Canyon Road. All events are free and open to the public.

Friday, October 20th will mark the beginning of the festivities with artist receptions, new exhibitions, food, and musical events at many of the road’s historic galleries, restaurants and shops. Gallery openings, artist demonstrations, exhibitions, late night entertainment and opportunities to sample culinary delights are abundant.
