Love this gallery! The staff were very knowledgeable and welcoming. All too often the pretentious staff at most Santa Fe galleries won't give you the time of day but Manitou Gallery staff are very open to questions and make you feel at home. The gallery is not only beautiful but houses one of the best collections of contemporary art in the city. Be sure to drop by!

We've been collecting art for quite a long time, but we always treasure our visits to Manitou Galleries. The artists that are exhibited in the gallery are usually exceptionally good and tend to be in our "wheelhouse" as top Southwest artists. Whether your taste runs toward painting, sculpture, or jewelry, Manitou Galleries is absolutely amazing. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable, and though the art tends to be pricy, they're willing to make some amazing deals on occasion (we were there on Black Friday and got a painting by a top artist at 15% off).

If you're into Southwestern art was much as we are and want to go to the best galleries, start at Manitou.

There's lots of beautiful jewelry in Santa Fe. Unfortunately, it all begins to look the same. However, when you enter Manitou Galleries and see the pieces from Palace Jewelry, you realize the paintings and the sculptures are not the only art in the building.

There are some pieces that are typical designs seen at other places - they want to cater to all tastes - but many of the pieces are one of a kind, very unusual works of art.

Make sure you ask for Susan to help you. She will not blow smoke up your dress by telling you something looks good just to sell it. She's honest, has wonderful taste and simply wants to make sure you buy something you love and that suits you. She's obviously not looking for a one-time sale.

We will certainly be back!
