Peggy Trigg
Southwest Landscapes

Peggy Trigg is a southwest landscape painter who mostly paints on location. She uses a palette of colors that are striking in their originality and strength. The fluid brush strokes add a subtle texture and energy to the surface. The rendering is somewhat impressionistic and often inspired by the subject matter. The artist is able to use her technical mastery to produce work that makes a strong first impression yet gradually reveals the depth of her love for the landscape she inhibits.

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
