2017 Sight Unseen

2017 Sight Unseen
March 12, 2017 4:00 PM
Location: Taos Community Auditorium Encore Gallery

By popular request the Taos Center for the Arts is hosting its fifth annual Sight Unseen on Sunday March 12th. Sight Unseen is a fun fundraiser shrouded in mystery. This year approximately 100 6” x 8” works of art created by recognized and beloved Taos artists will be for sale for $135 each. The mystery is no one will know who created the work of art until the piece is purchased. All works are signed on the back thus “Sight Unseen”.

Each year Sight Unseen artists pour their heart, soul, and creative talents in creating little gems. Many play with new ideas, media, and techniques, thus works may or may not be easily recognizable. Collectors choose with their heart as they see the piece that captures their eye. Whether chosen for the story the piece tells, for the craftsmanship, for pure aesthetics, or all such reasons; one thing is for sure, this is a rare opportunity to own a Taos original.

The art will be exhibited in the Stables Gallery, but not seen until the designated hour of 5pm when doors will open for viewing and purchase. Organizers take many measures to keep the work unseen including papering the windows of the Stables so no one can peak inside prior to the event. Entrance to the Stables will be by a numbered pass, which is available during the preceding reception that begins at 4pm in the Encore Gallery. It is recommended to come early to not only secure your pass, but to also enjoy a pre-event reception and cash bar.
