From the Permanent Collection: Taos Society of Artists
On view through January 9, 2022 in the Fechin House
The Taos Society of Artists (TSA) was an organization of artists founded in Taos, New Mexico, in 1915 by Joseph Henry Sharp, E. Irving Couse, Oscar E. Berninghaus, W. Herbert Dunton, Ernest Blumenschein, and Bert Phillips. The group sent traveling exhibits of their work across the United States, exposing audiences to new cultures, new visions, and a new landscape. These marketing efforts put Taos "on the map" for art and tourism, making it one of America's most important art colonies.
Select paintings from Taos Art Museum's permanent collection by members of the Taos Society of Artists are featured in the study on the first floor of the Fechin House and the master bedroom on the second floor. To learn more about the Taos Society of Artists, please visit this web page.
