Meanwhile, in Taos, Michael McCormick and Sons Gallery will be celebrating Taos’s all-time most flamboyant and prolific Indian artist, RC Gorman (1931- 2005) on August 22. Gorman had a gallery on Ledoux Street in Taos for more than thirty years and always hosted a grand reception there on the Thursday before Indian Market in Santa Fe. Celebrities from near and far came to Taos that evening each year and the gallery scene prospered.
