Studio Stories | Tom Dixon

Tom Dixon is one of Taos’ best kept secrets, but not for much longer. An incredibly disciplined painter, totally committed to his process as an artist. After studying at the Art Institute in Chicago he came here and began to work. He has lived and worked in the same place now for three decades, and when Larry Bell was asked to recommend artists whose studios we should visit and cover for this year’s edition of the Gallery Guide, Tom Dixon was at the top of his list.
Born in Albuquerque and raised in Peñasco, Juniper Manley has lived in Taos for the past 19 years.  She is currently the acting steward of the Harwood Museum.

Five Museums

To some it may seem inexplicable why Taos--a tiny town nestled in New Mexico’s high mountain desert--became the vortex for an American art movement of such national and international significance over the course of a century.  But to Davison Koenig, the Couse-Sharp Historic Site executive director and curator, it’s perfectly understandable.

A Room of One’s Own

There are dozens of art galleries in Taos, but women-owned galleries are still rare. Maye Torres and Georgia Gersh are two women who grew up in Taos art circles, one the daughter of a gallery owner and the other the daughter of a famous artist. Both are artists themselves, and both now have galleries that have become essential resources for the Taos arts community.

Studio Stories | Larry Bell

Larry Bell is a renowned contemporary American artist, best known for his glass cubes and large-scale sculpture. Born in Chicago in 1959 he mostly grew up in Los Angeles, where he studied at the Chouinard Art Institute (now part of CalArts), with the intention of becoming a Disney animator. It was at Chouinard where Bell was introduced to abstract art.

Studio Stories | Two women claim their space, Part Two: Theresa Gray

Izumi Yokoyama and Theresa Gray belong to the continuum of artists who have followed the call to come to the High Desert since Bert Phillips and Ernest Blumenschein’s wagon wheel broke, stranding the two young East Coast artists in Taos. That was a century ago, and the stream of artists that arrive in Taos and stay, remains steady.

Artist of Taos: Leigh Gusterson

"I’ve always loved painting outdoors, but in Taos I learned to paint outside in a very energetic, efficient and fast way, so I could pack up and get to the school in time to pick up my two daughters.”

The Birth Project

Judy Chicago believed there to be an absence of iconography that explored birthing in American and Western art. The work explores motherhood, the spiritual as well as emotional experience of giving birth and feminine politics.
