Taos Art Insurgency : The New Protagonists
April 21- May 12th
Reception, Saturday, April 21.
Taos Art Insurgency: The New Protagonistsis a show that poses the questions: Who will be the artists that lead the way for the new millennium? What will be the movements and issues they champion? Taos is a major artist's colony that has been at the forefront of all of the modern art movements initiated within the last 120 years. Throughout history various seminal art movements have been concentrated in this sleepy, little, mountain village. Taos has been a major seat of Modernism, Abstract-Expressionism, and Minimalism. David Anthony Fine Art, Wilder Nightingale Fine Art, and Greg Moon Art of Taos host this national show in conjunction with the Taos Spring Arts Festival. The show will run April 21st – May 12th with an opening reception on April 21st.
