Private tours of Taos Art Museum and Couse-Sharp Historic Site will provide inspiration from two notable Impressionist art properties.

“We are delighted to partner with Rob Wilder Nightingale at Wilder Nightingale Fine Art to present our annual Small Works exhibition of 170 paintings. A special Paint Out will feature over 30 artists who will be painting in and around Taos from May 10-May 14. Their paintings will be on sale for one day only on May 14 so we highly encourage visitors to look for the artists as they capture the essence of Taos” noted Liz Ahrens, AIS Executive Director. “Each year we select two different locations to host our annual exhibitions and the last time AIS was in Taos was 2005” continued Ahrens.

Rob Nightingale states, “I’m excited to hold this exhibition and sale.   Check out the online catalog and you will see an exceptional group[ of artists and works from around the country.

Artists will be painting about town and enjoying the Art Colony of Taos”
