‘Tis the Season for Studio Tours

Posted September 1, 2017, BeyondTaos staff

Nine Northern New Mexico communities, and two Taos art districts,  host annual self-guided tours of the studios and work spaces of artists who are, most of the year, quite private. Visitors have the opportunity to watch the artists at work, ask questions and buy direct from the source. Most of these tours are on the weekends during September, October and November from 10:00am to 5:00pm, but check each website for particulars.

Here’s the full schedule with lists of artists for the next three tours. Stand by for more about the later tours – the plans are still forming!
