Taos Gallery Association Cradled on the edge of where the soaring Sangre de Cristo Mountains of northern New Mexico fan out westward toward the sage brushed mesas and plains, Taos has been a magnet for artists for over 100 years. Rooted with the now legendary “broken wheel” of Blumenschein and Sharp in the 1890’s, to the formation of the “Taos Society of Artists” in the early 20th century, Taos’ storied history as an artists’ community is as colorful and vibrant as the arts and crafts emanating from its adobe and hollyhock-lined streets. Touchstone is a member of the Taos Gallery Association.
