Painting of Ray by Allen Polt

Ray Vinella’s fine art career in Taos spans almost 50 years and includes being a founder in the mid-’70s of The Taos Six (which included Taos artists Ron Barsano, Robert Daughters, Rod Goebel, Walt Gonske and Julian Robles) as well as being an educator of dozens of Taos painters such as Miguel Martinez, Alyce Frank, Barbara Zaring, Francis Donald and Judy Gentry, to name just a few – many who owe aspects of their unique styles to the discerning eye of their Taos instructor, Ray Vinella.

Considering that Vinella is a venerable institution of the Taos art scene, respected for his paintings, his years of dedication to teaching, loved by so many for his generosity and a bonafide bright and shining star of Taos arts for the past 48 years, the Taos Center for the Arts is hosting an artist reception next Thursday (Aug. 31) from 4 to 6 p.m. at TCA’s Encore Gallery, located at 145 Paseo del Pueblo Norte.

Vinella's art book, “Vinella – One Man’s Journey In The World Of Art” (L Harper Publishing; 2006) will also be for sale at the reception, along with four different prints being exhibited. He will sign and do a quick sketch in each book that is sold that night. Normally priced at $125, the Taos locals’ price for the book is $95 – a nice package to walk away with -- the book plus an original ink drawing by Ray Vinella.

These events are planned for TCA’s various venues: the auditorium, Encore Gallery, and Stables Gallery. Most events, but not all, are sponsored by TCA. Submit your TCA event here.
