The Winter Season aqui en Taos has officially begun!
Snow or not, ready or not, Christmas is almost here, with all of its joy and good cheer!
December 1st, Taos Historic Museums present the last big show of the year, and the first in their New Masters Of Taos Art series; Oil and Water, new works by Christie Bundy at the Blumenschein House and Museum on Ledoux Street.
Margo Beutler-Gins,(the President of the Board of Directors at Taos Historic Museums), who is not only an incredibly talented artist herself (her Great grandfather was Taos Society of Artists Founder, Bert Phillips), but is seriously committed to keeping Art front and center, here in Taos, told me that she has several reasons for implementing this series.
“I researched for nearly a year and created this project for several reasons,” she said. “First and foremost to promote and present some very talented but underrepresented professional artists who live and work in Taos.”
“We have other shows planned throughout 2018, which I am hoping will bring relevant (Art) collectors back to Taos and get the attention of the Western Art market in general.” She continues.
“I think this will ultimately stimulate business growth and higher wage jobs for the Town of Taos and all who reside here.” She continued. “These (upcoming) events, along with the fully implemented plan (in the works), will once again, make Taos a viable art collectors destination for many years to come.”
Christie Bundy’s love of the unique light here in the Land of Enchantment infuse her paintings with both warmth and depth. Shadow play along with the organic shapes and curves of ancient adobes, feed her imagination and inform her work.
Christie has studied with many artists in the United States and in the U.K. She spent one summer attending the Royal College of Art in London, England, where she focused on life drawing and painting.
There will be a reception for the artist from 5-7pm, with food and refreshments served.
Although the Blumenschein Museum will not be open on Saturday night during the Lighting of Ledoux, they will have a bonfire and cider in their courtyard.
