The Pecos Studio Tour is made up of a loosely knit group of artists living in and around the village of Pecos in northeastern New Mexico. Located 20 minutes from Santa Fe (I-25 North), our small community hosts a blend of unique people. Besides artists in all media, many residents have long historic and cultural ties to the area.
Situated on the east side of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, Pecos enjoys four beautiful seasons. With clean air and wonderful light, it’s the perfect atmosphere for creating inventive art. Our mountains also offer great outdoor recreation.
In the midst of piñon, juniper, and ponderosa pine woodlands in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains not far from Santa Fe, the remains of an Indian pueblo stand as a meaningful reminder of a people who once prevailed here. Today a national historical park demonstrates to modern visitors the cultural exchange and geographic facets central to the rich history of the Pecos Valley. www.nps.gov/peco/index.htm
