The spirit of this show is plein air! Because of the intimate space of the Fechin Studio and the limited artificial lighting used in the evenings, each artist is invited to hang one painting that was painted primarily en plein air. Of course, if a painting sells you will be welcome to replace it during the run of the exhibition. We need to limit the image size of the plein air paintings to the neighborhood of about 16”x20”, and all paintings must be framed or gallery-wrapped and wired for museum hanging. We will need your painting (or any replacements due to sales) through the entire run of the exhibition.


Pieces can be hand delivered or shipped directly to the museum to arrive by Friday, January 31, 2020 at:

Taos Art Museum at Fechin House

227 Paseo del Pueblo Norte

Taos, NM 87571

Please select to download the Shipping Label and  the Back of Art Label for shipping your artwork and for attaching to the back of your piece (respectively).

The museum has a vault where the paintings can be stored until the show is hung, but they need to be able to identify it as part of our show.

They can accept hand delivered paintings by drop-off between 11:00 AM-4:00 PM, January 30-31, 2020.  If you need to deliver a piece outside of those hours, please call Christy Coleman at 575-758-2690 to arrange it.  Those of you who are not able to hand-deliver your painting, will be required to cover the cost of shipping to and from the Museum.


Please email a Digital JPG Image of your artwork (at least 1200 pixels on the longest side) and the Artist Information Sheet (including the artwork information) to Barbara Coleman  at 

or email the artwork image and mail the sheet to:

Barbara Coleman

1620 San Cristobal Rd.

Albuquerque, NM 87104

We will use it for the wall nameplates and for promotion of the show. I already have digital images of your show piece from some of you, but still need your complete Artist Information.


There will be an Opening Artist’s Reception on Sat., February 8, 2020 from 2:00 PM-4:00 PM. Please plan to attend if you can and invite your friends, family, collectors, etc. to see what promises to be a very nice show. Any promotion of the show that each of you can do is greatly appreciated! I will send out a digital postcard that can easily be sent out by email or put onto social media, etc.


We will contact you should your art sell during the show. Due to the length of the show and visitor origin, those purchasing artwork will be allowed to take it with them or have it shipped. You will be given the opportunity to replace your “empty spot” with another piece of art. (Commission Split: 50% Artist, 40% Taos Art Museum, 10% PAPNM)


Unsold artwork will need to be picked up by Tues or Wed March 17-18, 2020 11:00 AM-4:00 PM.  If you need to make other arrangements, please call Christy Coleman at 575-758-2690.  Those of you who shipped artwork will be notified of return shipping arrangements.
