Located on Gallery Row in the central historical district, Greg Moon Art prides itself in continuing the fine art traditions of Taos. We specialize in contemporary works ranging from oils to assemblage...genres of work include realism, outsider art, and pop-surrealism. Our annual national juried show endeavors to provide a showcase for up and coming talents to gain exposure in the New Mexico art market while helping to provide visibility for the overall profile of the arts in Taos. Our invitational shows are geared towards exhibiting artists and genres that are under-represented in the New Mexico region.

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

“As far as I am concerned, the explaining artist puts himself or herself in front of the work for the purpose of destroying the mystery of how it came into being… I think we need to have faith that the art experience can take place between the viewer and the work itself.”
