Carolene Herbel
Southwest Fine Art

Carolene Herbel is a Taos, New Mexico artist and painter who works with acrylics and oils in her paintings of the southwest. Inspired by the northern New Mexico colors and culture, she paints the local scenery, landscapes, architecture, lifestyles, plants and animals around her. Her use of vibrant colors and strokes reflect the changing light and textures found across the high desert of northern New Mexico.

Sundara Heart

Figurative or landscape, my voice informs the work. Oil and acrylic are my primary mediums, but I also work in clay and enjoy photography, and installation and public art projects. My paintings are currently on show at the 'Taos Artist Collective'. I am originally from the North of England but reside here in the magical town of Taos.

Stephen Vaughn

I derive inspiration from the textile art of indigenous cultures around the globe to make visible the currents of energy that exist beneath the surface of our reality, and underpin the very fabric of being.

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
