Join Us For Taos Artists in Action!

Painting, sculpture, jewelry, and fashion in the making. Experience the art and meet the artists at the Taos Center for the Art’s Fifteenth Annual Quick Draw and Auction Event on Saturday September 26th. From high noon to 3pm northern New Mexico’s most talented artists join together in this open-air, free event that is located in the Stables Gallery Courtyard. Artists create two and three-dimensional art in a variety of mediums including: oil, watercolors, acrylics, drawings, mixed media,wood, glass, metal and fibre in a three-hour period. To watch, learn, and appreciate art in the making during Quick Draw is not unlike a private studio visit with acclaimed artists. And once you have identified your favorite work of art you will have the opportunity to purchasd during Quick Draw's live auction event in the Encore gallery beginning at 5pm. This is a unique and fun experience for art lovers and collectors.

The event coinsides with Taos Fall Arts and Paseo, which will add to the energy, excitement and celebration of art that exudes from the artist’s studio to the streets and galleries of the Town.

Proceeds from the auction benefit both the artists and the TCA. Thus your art purchase helps one of the oldest non-profit organizations in New Mexico provide facilities, programming and education in the visual, performing and media arts in our community.
