Abiquiu Studio Tour

The Abiquiu Studio Tour is so much more than an event - It's a living, breathing tribute to the thriving art scene and vibrant colors of Abiquiu, New Mexico! This beloved tradition traces its roots back to the late '90s when a small group of local artists decided to open their studio doors and share their passion with the world.

Over the years, this humble gathering has blossomed into an institution showcasing proud local artists' diverse talents from this unique corner of the American Southwest. It's a three-day immersion into the heart and soul of Abiquiu's artistic spirit, and Santa Fe is the perfect place to base yourself to include a road-trip adventure! Our Santa Fe vacation rentals await you! You can find more details about this exciting weekend event, and donate directly to the organizers and artists at the Official Abiquiu Studio Tour Website.

During the Abiquiu Studio Tour, you'll explore the charming streets of Abiquiu, where hidden gems await at every stop. Artists from various disciplines – painters, sculptors, ceramicists, and silver artisans like A Vacation Different’s very own Ursula Luchetti-Jordan – will open their studios to the public, inviting you to witness their one-of-a-kind creative processes.

Prepare to be amazed by a breathtaking array of art, each piece drawing inspiration from the unique landscapes, scents, and colors of the artist’s beloved Abiquiu. Every work of art tells a story, offering a peak into the heart and soul of the region we are so proud to call home!

Experience A Vacation Different!

Make an adventure out of it

Abiquiu is a place where nature's beauty and artistic creativity intertwine. Nestled amidst the rugged terrain of northern New Mexico, it offers a tranquil escape from the chaos of busy city life. The iconic red rock formations, expansive blue skies, and the tranquil Chama River create a postcard-worthy backdrop to a vibrant artistic community.

Getting to Abiquiu from Santa Fe is an easy, picturesque drive of about 1.5 hours. As you wind through the stunning landscapes of New Mexico, every twist and turn of the road reveals a new layer of Abiquiu's natural beauty.
