NM Visions by Kathryn A. Hayden

Kathryn describes her style as photo artistry. She builds dramatic and thoughtful scenes by combining her images with layered textured backgrounds to evoke emotional connection and response. Currently she is one of the featured fine art photographers at Amore Gallery. Her studio on Kit Carson is also open to the public. Kathryn’s images have been shown in both juried and non-juried shows including: Taos Art Museum at the Fechin; New Mexico Art League; Harwood Museum; Millicent Rogers Museum; Wilder Nightingale Fine Art; Taos Fall Arts Festival; Taos Studio Tour; Taos Ski Valley Arts Festival; Alumbra de Questa.

Simone Wimett Jaramillo

We all strive to feel grounded in this world, to feel and be loved, to be inspired by those around us. In her art, she is driven to translate details of the human experience as interpreted in her mind into color-driven, vivacious, alluring imagery. Whether Simone's art leads its viewers down a path of simple engagement, intellectual thought, or a session of visual stimulation, she experiences such happiness in sharing her work.

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
