Taos, New Mexico continues as an art colony with a legacy spanning three centuries, and origins tracing back to 1898. The picturesque mountain setting, historic Taos Pueblo, and tri-cultural community all created rich subject matter for the artists.
Organization of Taos Society of Artists in 1915 provided touring and marketing opportunities for the artists living and working in the remote Northern New Mexico community, and helped make Taos an internationally known art center.
Phoenix Art Museum has a strong collection of Taos art, and we’ll look at some of these images along with works from other collections.
Marcia Ruddock will be presenting. She is a Master Docent at Phoenix Art Museum, and has enjoyed many visits to Taos.
