New Mexico: BEST OF THE WEST


Schneider, Wolf, Southwest Art


The Town Turns Out

TAOS.... The arts have been part of the allure of this New Mexico mountain town for more than a thousand years, from the artisans of Taos Pueblo to the Hispanic santeros of the last 500 years to the Taos Society of Artists and Taos Moderns. This month the community celebrates with the festive Taos Spring Arts Celebration, now in its 23rd year. Throughout May, art galleries are hosting such special events as Spring Arts poster artist Ken Daggett's artworks at Act I Gallery; Stephen Datz's opening show reception at Act I Gallery on May 27; and Wilder Nightingale Fine Art's first sculpture show on May 27. Brazos Fine Art holds a Spring Arts in Taos group show with a reception on May 27, while that same day Walden Fine Art opens its show of Marie Massey's artworks. Grimshaw Fine Art presents an exhibit of Diane Ainsworth's watercolors with an opening reception on May 12. Weaving Southwest opens a group show for 20 tapestry artists on May 19, and Cichon Fine Art Gallery debuts Globe Trekking, a multi-artist exhibit of photographs and three-dimensional art, on May 13. The Taos Gallery Association is offering maps to many art receptions and openings. Numerous special events are also planned at local museums and other arts organizations.
