The Taos Artist Co-Op is an artist-owned gallery representing many different art disciplines. Our mission is to create art, share it with the public, and build community.

The storefront is ideally located at 226 Paseo del Pueblo Norte, across from the Fechin Museum, next to Brodsky’s Bookstore and 1 block south of Michael’s Kitchen. There are about 12 linear feet of wall per artist and equivalent floor space for 3-D artists. There are also locked showcases for jewelry.

We are forming a dynamic and knowledgeable committee to assist with hanging and showing your work in a professional manner. Individual artist will be specially featured on a rotational basis. Studio space may also be available in the future to conduct workshops.

We hope you will consider becoming part of our artist/owned venture. For additional information, please contact our membership director, Lois Fernandez, at the number below.
