It’s housed in the home of one of the founders of the Taos art community . The adobe house contains furniture built by the artist as well as his art and other Taos artists. The proverbial gift shop

Great collection of paintings in a historic house. The hand carved doors, window treatments and furniture alone are worth the price of admission. Also a nice garden area and gift shop. We had an enjoyable conversation with the docent (curator?) - provided a lot of...More
