The air is crisp, the evenings are chilly, and art is everywhere on display. Ah, Santa Fe in the wintertime! In celebration of the winter season and the upcoming Winter Solstice, Canyon Road Contemporary Art will be showcasing artwork inspired by the season on Friday, December 2, 2022, from 4 – 6 p.m. The event is part of the annual Canyon Road Fireside Chat Artist Series, a free multi-venue experience sponsored by the Canyon Road Merchants Association that ushers in the holidays with farolitos, bonfires, live music, seasonal refreshments, and, of course, an incredible selection of art.

This year, as part of the series, Canyon Road Contemporary Art is hosting live music by the bonfire, with special guest Ed Sandoval, who will talk about his life in Northern New Mexico and his lifelong pursuit of cultural identity. A renowned artist, Sandoval’s family history – encompassing hundreds of years in the region – informs his narrative as he depicts the authentic and nostalgic life of the inhabitants of this beautiful country with impressionistic flair. Winner of the Governor’s Award for Excellence in 2012, Sandoval is a well-known and treasured part of Northern New Mexican culture.

Located on Canyon Road in Santa Fe, Canyon Road Contemporary Art has enjoyed over 35 years serving art collectors. A historic building, the Rios family home, and the former Waxlander gallery, is the setting for artworks by over 30 artists, in a spacious setting of 3,000 square feet of exhibition space and a beautiful garden for its artworks. The gallery offers art enthusiasts an eclectic mix of contemporary art in gemstones, pastel, oil, watercolor, acrylic, mixed media, fused glass, ceramic and bronze sculpture.

Now in its second year, the Canyon Road Fireside Chat Artist Series showcases the historic art district’s diverse gallery scene, with art that celebrates the magic of the season. Take a leisurely stroll along the 600 – 700 block of Canyon Road and get a preview of the upcoming Canyon Road Farolito Walk, which delights many on Christmas eve. Music will fill the air, libations will warm the cockles, and some of the best art in the country will fill the soul. The six galleries participating include Canyon Road Contemporary Art, Ventana Fine Art, Kay Contemporary, Winterowd Gallery, GF Contemporary and Giacobbe Fritz Fine Art. All events take place from 4 – 7 p.m.
