CELEBRATING 33 YEARS ON CANYON ROAD!
Waxlander Gallery started with a dream: Phyllis Kapp wanted to sell her artwork along Santa Fe's Canyon Road. In December 1985, only days before her 55th birthday, she left Chicago with the goal of doing just that. She arrived on a snowy evening and rented a room for a studio.

Since its founding, Waxlander Gallery has grown to encompass a vibrant collection of works from a stable of both prominent and emerging contemporary artists, each one selected by Phyllis herself for the joyful nature their work conveys. Visitors today can still expect to see the exuberant watercolors by Kapp at the heart of the gallery, and in addition they can also experience the colorful oil landscapes of Marshall Noice, the lively acrylic Southwestern scenes of Andree Hudson, radiant oil landscapes by Matthew Higginbotham, expressive oil abstracts by Javier Lopez Barbosa, the carved Plexiglass works of Christopher Owen Nelson, and many more works from the more than 30 artists whose art is included.
Finally, for a truly southwestern experience, we recommend out of town guests book a stay in a unique Santa fe residence through Phyllis’s daughter, Wendy Kapp’s, ‘Two Casitas Vacation Rentals.’
