Every fall, as the nights become cooler and the leaves begin to turn, artisans throughout New Mexico open their studios to art lovers and collectors in an event known as the High Road Art Tour.

TQS spent some time during the recent annual event visiting the studios of seven diverse and passionate artists. Join us for the next six weeks as we take you "behind the scenes" to learn what drives some of New Mexico's most creative artisans.
