The spirit of this show is plein air! Because of the intimate space of the Fechin Studio and the limited artificial lighting used in the evenings, each artist is invited to hang one painting that was painted primarily en plein air. Of course, if a painting sells you will be welcome to replace it during the run of the exhibition. We need to limit the image size of the plein air paintings to the neighborhood of about 20”x24”, and all paintings must be framed or gallery-wrapped and wired for museum hanging. We will need your painting (or any replacements due to sales) through the entire run of the exhibition.


Pieces can be hand delivered or shipped directly to the museum now, but must arrive by Sat., Nov. 3, 2108 at:

Taos Art Museum at Fechin House

227 Paseo del Pueblo Norte

Taos, NM 87571

Please use the Shipping Label and attach the Back of Art Label to your piece (see links above). The museum has a vault where the paintings can be stored until the show is hung, but they need to be able to identify it as part of our show.

They can accept hand delivered paintings by drop-off during regular museum hours (10:00 AM-4:00 PM) Tues. thru Sun., until Nov 3rd.  If you need to deliver a piece outside of those hours, please call Cindy Atkins at 210-288-9336 to arrange it.  Those of you who are not able to hand-deliver your painting, will be required to cover the cost of shipping to and from the Museum.

We will use it for the wall nameplates and for promotion of the show. I already have digital images of your show piece from some of you, but still need your complete Artist Information.


There will be an Opening Artist’s Receptionon Sat., Nov. 10, 2018 from 3:00 PM-5:00 PM. Please plan to attend if you can and invite your friends, family, collectors, etc. to see what promises to be a very nice show. Any promotion of the show that each of you can do is greatly appreciated! I will send out a digital postcard that can easily be sent out by email or put onto social media, etc.


We will contact you should your art sell during the show. Due to the length of the show and visitor origin, those purchasing artwork will be allowed to take it with them or have it shipped. You will be given the opportunity to replace your “empty spot” with another piece of art. (Commission Split: 50% Artist, 40% Taos Art Museum, 10% PAPNM)


Unsold artwork will need to be picked up by Sun., Apr. 7, 2019. during regular museum hours (10:00 AM-4:00 PM) Tues. thru Sun.  If you need to make other arrangements, please call Cindy Atkins at 210-288-9336.  Those of you who shipped artwork will be notified of return shipping arrangements.
