TAOS ABSTRACT ARTIST COLLECTIVE LAUNCHES INAUGURAL EXHIBITION TO SHOWCASE TALENT IN NORTHERN NEW MEXICO
TAOS ABSTRACT ARTIST COLLECTIVE (TAAC) will launch its inaugural art exhibition from September 2–10th, 2022 at the Stables Gallery at the Taos Center for the Arts (133 Paseo Del Pueblo Norte, Taos, NM, 87571). The opening reception will be held on Friday, September 2 from 4-8pm MST and the exhibition will close with a reception on Saturday, September 10th from 4-8pm MST. The exhibition will display diverse work by abstract artists across a wide variety of media. Gallery hours will be held throughout the week. The event is free and open to the public.
TAAC promotes abstract artists working in or near Taos, New Mexico, toward the exchange of ideas, new aesthetics and creative concepts. Taos is synonymous with abstract thinking, with origins in indigenous geometries, transcendental and modernist movements, and conceptual and land art installation. Once the nexus for westward bound artists, Taos unleashes expansive, abstract thinkers. It’s from this landscape that TAAC is pleased to present its inaugural exhibition featuring more than 50 artworks in painting, drawing, fiber arts, sculpture, digital art, conceptual installation and printmaking. Represented amongst the artist group are established, mid-career and emerging artists who show in Taos or Northern New Mexico, nationally and internationally.
Conceptualized in 2020 by painters Kari Bell, Lauren Dana Smith and Aleya Hoerlein, the Taos Abstract Artist Collective will offer curated and juried exhibitions, artist talks, studio visits and collaborative community concepts. www.taosabstractartistcollective.com
TAAC is an inclusive group that amplifies self-identifying abstract artists living and working in Northern New Mexico, honoring our intersecting identities across race, national origin, ethnicity, culture, size, gender identity and expression, disability, sexuality, age, socioeconomic status, neurotype, religion and/or spiritual practice. All abstract artists are welcome in their pursuit of provocative expression.
