Canyon Road Arts District

Canyon Road Arts District


Is the walk going on this year and if so, when? Thanks.
What were the beginnings of Canyon Road? How did it become what it eventually became??
Is there anyone here who could help my wife and I with finding a place to sell some of the art she inherited when her father passed. It is mostly western and Indian art. The biggest amount of paintings is by Charles Damrow. Please and thank you.
Our most popular exhibit of the year opens next Friday at ViVO Contemporary
Thank you Trend Magazine.
Aleta Pippin, Pippin Contemporary starting on page 116. New paintings by Phyllis Kapp on pages 26-27. Congratulations Cynthia on an elegant 2018 Trend Summer Lookbook.
Pat Matthews painting in front of Pippin Contemporary during 10th Annual Paint/Sculpt Out. Join us today and speak with artists on Canyon Road and Delgado. A fun way to interact.

This page describes the arts District of Canyon Road in Santa Fe New Mexico, including galleries restaurants and boutiques.

Operating as usual

Alexandra Stevens Gallery

We show a lot of our miniatures but many people have large spaces that need the perfect, show stopping piece that brings the whole room together! James Roybal loves to work big, whether your tastes call for sunsets, forest scenes with gurgling streams, or powerful horses commanding attention. This oil masterpiece, "Andalusian", stands 60" tall by 40" wide and is one of many pieces by Roybal available at!

Visit our online Gallery and enjoy Sara Shawger paintings

Painter Sara Shawger found her passion for the skies and storms of the Southwest while living in Santa Fe. Focusing on low horizons and monumental stacks of clouds she brings out the vibrancy and power of the skies with unique brushstrokes. We're happy to include her in our online gallery! Visit to see more and call or message us to have your favorite piece shipped for Christmas!

Ever wonder how artists come up with titles?

"I had the sculpture up on a hydraulic table so I could work on her without bending over. I was struggling to fit her purse in her hands and was a bit frustrated. I looked up at her and said, “You are a complicated woman!” The name fit her to a tee and the description fits all women." ~Jeannine Young

See Jeannine Young's collection at and call or email us for more info. We'll ship for Christmas!

Alexandra Stevens Gallery

George E. Griffith continues to be inspired by the world around him and proves that you don't have to travel far from home to find beauty!
"'Where Is He' is painted from photos taken in Cypress, Texas where I live. New developments in Houston and surrounding areas are now required to have retention ponds, because of bad flooding from constant hurricanes. The retention ponds in Cypress are created as small lakes with green spaces planted around them. These small lakes attract all kinds of water fowl, so you pairs of birds around the lakes and flying over your house all the time." ~George E. Griffith
Visit to find more work by Griffith, call or message us for availability!

Alexandra Stevens Gallery

I can't help but be excited about aspens and how beautiful they are in the fall when contrasted with the blue sky and orange and yellow leaves, accented by the starch white trunks. Many artists try to capture the colors and the depth of a forest deep with trees, but none so well as James Roybal. In "Fall's Evening Glow" (24" x 24", oil on canvas) Roybal pulls out all the colors drawn out of the last light of day making the landscape shimmer to life.
Visit to see more of Roybal's expressionistic oils and call or message us for availability and shipping!

[10/29/20]   To avoid unintentional gathering and for the safety of our community’s young witches and ghouls, Canyon Road will not be hosting Halloween Trick-or-treating this year.

We're excited that Jeannine Young will be joining us in our virtual gallery. She has been experimenting and exploring her mediums with exciting results!

"The last several years I have longed to incorporate bright colors into my sculpture. I have also wanted to transition into one of a kind sculptures as well as broaden my subject matter. I have learned new techniques and am experimenting with different materials and having a lot of fun with the results.

'Blue Cat on a New Moon' is stained glass over a bronze casting of a playfully stylized cat. The base is black granite disc which symbolizes a new moon. The blue cat is always changing as the pieces of glass reflect the light differently throughout the day." ~ Jeannine Young

(11" tall on 4 inch granite disc, stained glass over bronze casting, unique)

"Letting Go" by Jeannine Young is the perfect companion for our big announcement...

Those of you who know me have heard me say for decades that I might retire soon. Perhaps this is the time to “Let Go” of a physical location and transition fully into an electronic presence. I have enjoyed the art business since 1979. I have met and become friends with some amazing people, including you. Thank you for being a part of my world.

My artists and collectors are my family. The works my artists create come from their soul, and pass through me, to be appreciated by the part of my “greater family” of collectors.

In the “Modern World” many if not most sales are done remotely. After many years of establishing a reputation, a fair percentage of my gallery sales have been loyal collectors via internet and phone. I will continue to have an online presence and represent many of my wonderful artists.

The artists have agreed to “LET GO” of the beautiful works in my gallery at substantial savings to you. We will offer paintings and sculpture currently in the gallery at special pricing through September 15, 2020.

If you have been considering work by one of my artists, act quickly. Credit card fees and shipping would be at actual additional cost. Visit our website to see all available works:

Alexandra Stevens Gallery

With a little more time on our hands we have a chance to focus on nature and the world around us. Jody Rigsby spends a lot of time exploring outdoors and was rewarded with the beautiful colors and wildlife of the desert which inspired her latest piece, "Springtime Foxtrot" (10" x 22", oil).
"Springtime in the Southwest is so magical. This year I was able to see the short blooming season where thousands of tiny yellow flowers cover large sections of the desert."
See more works by Jody Rigsby at!

Alexandra Stevens Gallery

Museums might not be open right now, but galleries are! Be sure to spend some time on Canyon Road this season to see all the latest work by our wonderful artists! If you're not planning a trip anytime soon you can peruse our website at and we'll ship your favorite piece right to your doorstep!

George E. Griffith has been especially busy while being safe at home, here is a description of his latest work in progress:
"'Casa Loma Summer' is painted from Casa Loma Castle's gardens in Toronto, Canada. It was one of the first buildings to have an elevator and the stables are lined with tile and copper. The castle is a popular film location and was used in Harry Potter And The Deadly Hallows."

A great activity for the weekend that everyone can do safely is go for a drive! Take those roads you usually pass up or head for a mountain town that you've always wanted to visit. Pack a lunch and picnic by a trickling stream under the trees! And stop by Canyon Road of course, for a different kind of feast for the eyes. Art and nature are good for the soul!

Ventana Fine Art and it’s talented artist, Margaret Nes, use the power of art to find a critical rescue effort. Bravo!

Remember earlier this year we had a special sale of Margaret Nes pastels and a portion of the proceeds went to the Navajo nation Covid relief fund? Well, recently, Ventana was able to donate $10,465 to this fund. Thanks for supporting us in making a difference.

Exciting news from George E Griffith! This year is the bicentennial of the birth of Florence Nightingale, founder of modern nursing and the first nursing college. Today, the legacy of Florence Nightingale continues. "When Will You Be Home" has been donated for auction in New York to Nurse's Heroes Contest in the Nurse Heroes gallery! All money goes to nurses, and nurse training, which starts this July.
George is such a giving and passionate artist, thank you for donating to a great cause!

Visit Sara's web site.. Many of you will remember her as she did live here.

Coming out from behind the keyboard...I help Alexandra with her social media and was asked to post some of my own work! I've always been inspired by the sky and clouds and horizon lines. Something about the zen and calm I feel watching from a distance along with a constant desire to see what's over that next horizon.
You can contact me directly at [email protected] and see more at! Thank you Alexandra!
