Thanks for the positive review. We always enjoy hearing from our customers. We're glad you liked the store. We hope to see you again.
Typical Old Town shop with lots of different art pieces from a wide range of local artists. Their prices are very reasonable for mid-art range pieces. Worth stopping in for a few minutes as you walk around Old Town.

Thanks for visiting Genuine Southwest and for the review. We're glad you enjoyed the store and all our art work. If you come back to Albuquerque stop in to see us!
A beautiful variety of items to choose from. All items are made by local artists. They carry a little of everything. Glassware. Household items. You will find something for those back home. The owners were very friendly and offered great advice for places to eat.

I came upon this beautiful little co-op art gallery from the backside while cutting into the Plaza from the Art Museum. It is tucked away and a little hidden, but was the best spot for down-to-Earth genuine NN art in Old Town.
