Looking forward in 2015, the fifth annual Alameda Studio Tour is coming in mid-September.  In 2014, 42 professional artists in the Alameda area shared their works and studios Now one of the bigger tours in the Albuquerque area, this tour is full of variety and wonderful quality. You can visit the studios to see blown and stained glass, painting in many mediums, jewelry, recycled art, photography, furniture, mosaics, printmaking, mixed media, and pottery, as well as visiting a alpaca farm, where wool is spun and woven into wearable art.

Our community has a history that many local residents aren't aware of. In the 1700s, Alameda was a farming and ranching community that engaged in trade with local pueblo Indians. The Plaza de Alameda was the original center, and consisted of a few adobes residences and a private chapel, La Nuestra Senora de la Conception, built by Juan Gonzales-Bas in 1712. Through the ensuing two centuries the settlers endured floods but continue to enrich the area. Today the Alameda area remains a splendid pastoral green belt between Albuquerque's bustling east and west sides.

We hope you will make plans to tour the studios and enjoy the personal and inspiring experience of art and craft studios, purchase something to remember your journey by, and enjoy the beauty of New Mexico in September, with the aroma of green chile roasting, hot air balloons above and the Rio Grande's cottonwoods below.
