If you're looking for something fun to do this weekend in Santa Fe, other than trying yet another fabulous Santa Fe restaurant during Restaurant Week, here's your answer: The ARTsmart Art of Homes Tour, hosted and underwritten by Keller Williams. From noon to four on Saturday and Sunday, you can tour 15 high end Santa Fe homes, each paired with art from a local gallery. The tour is absolutely free and benefits ARTsmart, a local nonprofit dedicated to keeping art in public schools in northern New Mexico.
As the third largest art market in the United States, Santa Fe offers a plethora of galleries and art dealers. Here's a great way to acquaint yourself with some of their offerings while viewing beautiful Keller Williams listings.
Here's one of the homes that will be on the tour.
After I sold a home to ARTsmart's president, Connie Axton, she and another board member approached me three years ago and asked if I would consider organizing this event for Keller Williams. As a new broker in Santa Fe, I immediately said yes. I was ready to get involved and give back to a very worthy organization. Little did I know what a huge event this is, and how I would grow to love the organization and this event in particular.
Find the map of homes here, in this week's edition of Santa Fe Now: https://issuu.com/santafean/docs/santa_fean_now_fe... Should you see a piece of sculpture or artwork in one of the houses that you just can't pass up, buy it! A portion of all the proceeds from art purchases goes to ARTsmart's kids.
