Invitational exhibition to honor our Signature and Master Signature members of Plein Air Painters of New Mexico! We are teaming up with the Taos Art Museum at Fechin House to host this show in the Fechin Studio
We are sure that most of you are already familiar with the home and studio of Nicolai Fechin. If you are not, this beautiful property in Taos, NM is now home to the Taos Art Museum and its incredible permanent collection of the Taos Society of Artists, their contemporaries, and of course the work of Nicolai Fechin.

Up Next in the Fechin Studio: the Plein Air Painters of New Mexico Master and Signature Member Exhibition
Plein Air Painting (in the open air) has strong historical roots in the Taos area through the Taos Society of Artists and their contemporaries. The Plein Air Painters of New Mexico (PAPNM) are dedicated to practicing, preserving, and promoting that tradition. This exhibition will showcase magnificent works by their prestigious Master and Signature members. Signature members must go through a rigorous process to earn the honor, including a blind jurying process and attaining specific professional and artistic excellence markers. Master membership is only awarded by invitation.
Join us in celebrating these talented artists at the exhibition opening reception on Saturday, April 9, 1-3 pm.
The show will be on view in the Fechin Studio from April 5- May 15, 2022.
