Stop At: Nedra Matteucci Galleries, Santa Fe, New Mexico

We'll kick off our immersive tour at Nedra Matteucci Galleries, a landmark Santa Fe art gallery. Housed in a beautiful, sprawling historic adobe building, Nedra Matteucci Galleries specializes in work with a Southwestern flair by modern and contemporary New Mexico artists. There, you'll discover artwork by notable local artists, delve into the work on view through a fun and insightful technique for art interpretation, and visit a gorgeous sculpture garden.

Stop At: Peters Projects, Santa Fe, New Mexico

Next door, in an impressive and airy gallery space, Peters Projects features a range of fascinating artwork by local and international cutting-edge contemporary artists. We'll take a closer look at the methods and media these artists use and the concepts that inspire them.

Pass By: Canyon Road, Santa Fe, New Mexico

After exploring the current exhibitions at Peters Projects, we'll head to Canyon Road, Santa Fe's historic arts district and home to over 80 galleries. Take in the unique ambiance of this art district as we stroll to our next gallery.

Stop At: Pippin Contemporary

Our final gallery stop is Pippin Contemporary, a cozy gallery on Canyon Road that celebrates color. Through fun prompts and conversation, we’ll explore messages and meaning in the artwork on view, pinpoint what we personally connect with, and uncover what we value about art.

To conclude the tour, we’ll visit Kakawa Chocolate House and indulge in tantalizing chocolate elixirs that stimulate the senses with unique combinations of herbs, spices, and fine drinking chocolate.

Worth the visit

Not your average chocolate shop. The art tour is nice, the art is nice, the sweets are a real treat. Free samples and the story behind each chocolate makes for a great diversion when visiting Santa Fe!
