4th Annual Alameda Studio Tour


  • Alameda Village 1019 Guadalupe Court Northwest Albuquerque, NM, 87114 United States

Start Time:  10am

The Fourth Annual Alameda Studio Tour will be held Saturday, September 13 and Sunday, September 14, 2014 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days at artists’ studios located throughout the Village of Alameda, New Mexico. Alameda is home to many established and emerging fine artists and skilled craftspeople.  The 40+ artists will open their studios and display their art work for sale during the two days of the tour throughout the scenic Alameda valley area, just north of Albuquerque. The wide range of art for sale includes paintings, pottery, jewelry, recycled art, fused glass, mixed media, folk art dolls, and much more.


The Village of Alameda

Nestled in Albuquerque’s north valley is the historic village of Alameda.  This area was the center of the Alameda Land Grant in the 17th century.  Originally a farming community of handcrafted adobe homes surrounded by irrigated fields, Alameda retains much of its original character today.  On the side streets, like Guadalupe Trail, you’ll often find yourself on narrow dirt and gravel roads which lead to rustic adobe homes, horse and cattle pastures, apple orchards and brilliant green alfalfa fields.  Hidden in the rural beauty are many artisans eager to share their creativity.

Alameda is bordered on the east by the railroad tracks that originally helped to bring New Mexico into the modern age.  To the north lies Sandia Pueblo.  The famous Rio Grande, New Mexico’s life blood, forms the western border of Alameda, and the historic village of Los Ranchos roughly forms Alameda’s southern boundary.

In 2011, a group of Alameda artists got together and formed the first annual Alameda Studio Tour with twenty-five artists opening their studios to the public, inspiring, educating, and offering their work for sale. The event was a great success, and as a result is now in its fourth year.

The Alameda artists will donate a portion of their proceeds to Art in the School, a non-profit art education organization which benefits children.
