Cheryl Price
Concrete Sculpture

Since she was ten years old, Cheryl wanted to be an artist, and nature has always been her source of inspiration. Currently she is working in oil using watercolor techniques to achieve a tonalist quality to her landscapes. For more than 35 years Cheryl has been painting and exhibiting in both regional and national shows. She is a signature member of the American Women Artists. Cheryl also has a passion for creating concrete sculpture influenced by both nature and the Southwest native american culture.

Jackson Ballard Gallery

native of Oklahoma and long time resident of Taos and now Santa Fe, Jackson finds his inspiration in Hispanic and Pueblo cultures of New Mexico. His paintings often capture stories of the past and present in their unique brushstrokes and blend of color schemes.

About the Taos Arts Council

What the Arts Council Does

The Taos Arts Council was founded in 2012 with the vision to create a central hub in support of the Arts and Artists Community in Taos, Taos County and Northern New Mexico.

Towards that longstanding goal, the TAC has been actively working towards defining its positioning in relation with the other entities and initiatives currently in Taos — such as the Town of Taos, The Taos Business Consortium, Art Space, Mainstreet, Strong at Heart and similar such government or grassroots organizations.

The stated approach for the Taos Arts Council is to support all constructive dialogue and action between organizations and individuals that is mutually beneficial to all involved.

Activities and Goals Include:

  • Need to Work with Local Government(s)
  • Need for Information Sharing
  • Need for Public Art & Spaces
  • Identifying Cooperative Efforts
  • Coordinated Activities Between Arts Related Organizations
  • Acting as Public Voice for Local Arts Community
