Art in Santa Fe

Santa Fe New Mexico and it's surrounding area is the home to many, many artists making the city a hot bed of wonderful artworks and galleries.  Above is a photo of the courtyard of one gallery filled with sculptures that fit right into that southwestern decor.

You can of course find many beautiful Allan Houser sculptures like this one called "Singing Heart".

Inside the Museum of Contemporary Native Arts, you can find a variety of wonderful works from pottery, to sculpture and paintings like this one to the right by Star Wallowing Bull called "Chief Cadillac"

Inside the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum you can see many of her wonderful paintings as well as a few by her contemporaries.  Here we see a young artist learning from the master.

Just walking along the street you can see beautiful sculptures outside of galleries.

This whimsical rabbit was outside the Sorrel Sky Gallery.

This family of burros was outside another gallery.

Even inside my hotel room was this wonderful painting by Dorothy Dunn called "The Studio School".

Up on Museum Hill this extra large sculpture by Craig Goseyun called "Apache Mountain Spirit Dancer" dominated the beautiful  courtyard of the museums.

Also in the courtyard of the museums that comprise Museum Hill was this wonderful statue by Estella Loretto called "Peaceful Warrior".

Art can be found everywhere you look in Santa Fe.  That's one of many things that makes this city so special.

My goodness, what an impressive array of photographs! You could do some promotional work for Santa Fe. I guess I'm gonna have to put this place on my bucket list, too!

"Chief Cadillac" is so much fun. One can give more than one interpretation when looking at it!
And I would defninitively spend a lot of time in the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum.
So much to see in Santa Fe, it's endless.
Great pictures all along this post.
