Prepare For A New Artesanos!


Artesanos Cultural Center, located next to the Questa post office, is a not-for-profit organization supporting artists from the greater northeastern New Mexico area. You will find the work of painters and blacksmiths, potters and woodworkers, and more.


Part of this old adobe building houses a large thrift store, Twice is Nice, and proceeds help to keep the center open and available for artists to show their work. Thanks to generous Questeños, the donations are overflowing!


Several volunteers are working diligently to showcase artists’ work and organize donations for an easier shopping experience. Please stop by this Questa landmark and find just the right item your home may need, whether it’s a new painting or a gently used coffeepot.


Please be patient while we work together to bring Artesanos Cultural Center back to its glory, and shop, shop, shop!
