What draws artists to this part of the country?

Northern New Mexico offers a huge variety of scenery, from mountaintop lakes to river gorges, vast mesa views, wildflowers and wildlife. Culture draws us here too, where the presence of earlier peoples is still felt. With the UNESCO World Heritage site of Taos Pueblo to the south, the Rio Grande del Norte National Monument to the west, The Carson National Forest to the east, and Latir Lakes overlooking it all; northern Taos County is a unique place.

We hope you will join us next year for the return of the annual Questa Studio Art Tour, for the first of the season’s studio tours in an area known for its art tours.

Meanwhile, explore the artists on this site to learn more about our dynamic artists in New Mexico, a state full of creativity!

Images below are from our Questa area artists that have an artist profile page or who were in the QSAT in 2019.
