Welcome to Art Taos

The intimate activity of seeing and expressing things, also inanimate things, in their transitoriness, barely there as they form and disperse in the reflections and refractions of light, the advancement and recession of planes, coming and going, relating and transforming, everything at a stage of its own growth and also a part of the whole, not constrained by appearances.

HENSLEY GALLERY SOUTHWEST

Jackson M. Hensley, a painter marked in the tradition of the American School of Realism, founded the Hensley Gallery in 1960. The heart and soul of the Hensley Gallery, Jackson currently has forty-five paintings in seventeen national museums throughout the country. The gallery originally carried the works of only three artists, Janus Annus, Vladimir Bachinsky, and Jackson M. Hensley, each of whom continues to show at Hensley Gallery. Currently representing a stable of more than thirty artists, the gallery represents moderately priced young up and coming artisans to contemporary masters. The Hensley Gallery is especially indebted to the masterful print making of Ladislav Hanka, Alan Wolton and his majestically impassioned works, and also to Michael Hensley’s powerful depictions of the human condition. The Hensley Gallery also carries the exceptionally diversified ceramic works of Potsy Old as well as exquisite hand crafted jewelry by Havean Hensley.

Gorman has lived in Taos and owned the Navajo Gallery there since 1968. Though he travels extensively to exhibitions throughout the United States and Europe, he always considers Taos his home.

KATHLEEN GRAY SCHALLOCK

Welcome to my Website.
My truest and strongest voice is in my artwork — the pursuit of beauty. An affirmation of life, I know I am truly present and alive when I’m out on the land painting, playing this duet with nature and God. The wind in my face, bird-songs, frog-songs, flower-fragrances, wind-grass symphonies romancing and caressing me — the essence of being aliveness.
Please call or e-mail if you would like photos of these paintings or would like to see other work.Giclee prints are available of all work.On-going, plein air painting workshops in Santa Fe and in Georgia O’Keefe country. Call for information.

KEITH SANDERS

‘Many people, including art critics, museum directors and gallery personnel, look upon watercolor painting as a secondary medium – a sketch tool. My primary concern for over 45 years has been to show that transparent watercolor is a fine art medium on the same level as oils and acrylics. In fact, watercolors can express certain moments and feelings like no other medium.’
Keith Sanders
Keith Sanders is president of the Taos National Society of Watercolorists and is a signature member of the National Watercolor Society, and Watercolor West.

MANOLO MONDEJAR

Manolo’s most recent works are going more towards painting and are becoming less narrative. Figures, landscapes, and still lifes are created with a highly developed sense of color and structure.

MARLENE HALL

Marlene’s striking impressionistic style and sophisticated use of color suggest many years of artistic development – yet this talented artist has only been painting since 1994.

SAM SCOTT

The famed abstract expressionist shows his large oils along with intimate studio still lifes and watercolor landscapes.

STEPHANIE CLIFTON

‘To be free is at the heart of my creative process, both in my art and in my life. I use art as a way to know myself, to share myself with others, and to heal. Through a process of deep self exploration, I attempt to reflect in my work the awesome metamorphosis being expressed in every moment of our lives, the apparent and unapparent, the seen
and unseen, the pain and the joy, seeking balance through an awareness that opposites are interdependent. My art is my questions, my pictures a form of problem-solving. Deep questioning inspiring images inspiring more questions. I work to come closer to a more refined reflection ofmy process, to remain open and flexible to the everchanging vastness of possibilities. Mine are images seeking truth. To remain challenged I choose to expose myself to different media, working at a given time with what works with me.’

THOMAS HOLZER FINE ART STUDIOS

For Thomas Holzer, one mode of expression is not enough. Glass designer and mosaicist, he settled in Taos to pursue his freest medium yet, mixed medium paintings on prepared surfaces.

WRIGHT FINE ARTS

Doug Wright joined the Taos Art Community in 1986. Entirely self-taught, Doug rapidly gained critical respect for his very personal and distinctive use of a broad range of painting styles. His new works are acrylics on paper and are notable for their rich combination of abstract, spiritual, and representational images.
There is an intellectual and emotional complexity in his work that draws one back, again and again, to each story told.

SAM TAYLOR’S CERRO MOJINO STUDIO

‘Being a Westerner, I have spent most of my life looking at horizons 70 miles distant. Now, I look at what is at my feet. My work is centered on recording the remnants of the Taos Resettlement Area, an area declared uninhabitable in the 1930’s by the U. S. Government. For most, it is still uninhabitable. I find it comforting.’

LENNY FOSTER’S LIVING LIGHT PHOTOGRAPHY GALLERY

Lenny Foster’s photographs honor and reveal the healing power of the spirit.
