Join Us For Taos Artists in Action!

Easels will be loaded, paint brushes pointed, and canvases at the ready for the Taos Center for the Art’s Fourteenth Annual Quick Draw and Auction Event on Saturday September 27th. From high noon to 3pm northern New Mexico’s most talented artists join together in this open-air, free event that is located in three different locations in Historic Downtown Taos. Artists create two and three-dimensional art in a variety of mediums including: oil paintings, watercolors, acrylics, drawings, mixed media, sculpture, and jewelry 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. This is a unique experience for art lovers and collectors.

Quick Draw artists will be located at the Taos Center for the Arts Stables courtyard, John Dunn Shops and the Blumenschein courtyard, all within walking distance of one another and all signed with festive balloons. 2014 artists to date are: Nora Anthony, Olga Teresa Baigas, Laurie Balliet, Barbara Barrett, Chuck Centers, George Chacon, Michelle Chrisman, Conrad Cooper, Jim Cox, Carol Demarinis, Lenny Foster, Katie George, Sally Giglio, Valerie Graves, Jon Greeley, Leigh Gusterson, Mary Beth Hill, Ann Huston, Elizabeth Jose, Jan Klassen, Geraldine Liermann, Anne MacNaughton, Clarence Medina, Mercedes Montoya, Dodie Nelson, Marcia Oliver, JoAnne Paulk, Paul Pascarella, Laurie Hill Phelps, Margery Reading, Sam Richardson, Sally Russell, Ed Sandovol, Charlotte Shroyer, Ron Stock, Robbie Steinback, John Sauzo, Lina Thewlis, Enrico Truijillo, Delinda Vannebrightyn, Logan Wannemaker, Thom Wheeler, Suzanne Wiggin, Barbara Zaring, and Zoe Zimmerman.

From 12 to 2pm KATAOS will broadcast live from the Stables courtyard adding to the fun and excitement of the day.

Works of art created during Quick Draw will be available for purchase at a lively and spirited auction at the Taos Community Auditorium at 5pm. Proceeds from the auction benefit both the artists and the Taos Center for the Arts. This year there will be special $25 pre-auction reception from 4 – 5pm that will include food, wine, a private preview of artwork, and reserved seating for the auction. This is a unique opportunity to begin or add to one’s art collection with work from renowned Taos artists.

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.

The Quick Draw and the Quick Draw Auction are free to the public. For more information, call Deborah McLean at 575-758-2052
