Sorrel Sky Gallery is one of Santa Fe’s most prestigious and respected galleries. It is located in the heart of Santa Fe about a block from the historic plaza and represents the work of many well known traditional, contemporary and western artists. Sorrel Sky Gallery was founded in 2002 and has two locations, the original in Durango, Colorado, and the newest location in Santa Fe, NM.




Note that participants may paint anywhere within a 75 mile radius of Santa Fe but these are the scheduled, hosted locations.

Members and the public are invited to paint alongside or watch the participants at the hosted paint outs. Please be mindful that the participants are involved in a competition and are focused on their work. Some are able to be more social than others while painting, so please respect their time and space.
