The Stables Gallery
OCTOBER 19th, 2018
A fine selection of works by the early modern artist of Taos, the Taos Moderns, some of whom created the original Stables Gallery, as an artist cooperative for the newly created Taos Artist Association in the mid 50s. The Stables Gallery, an actual converted stable, was a bastion and important showcase for modern art in Taos, and had a lasting influence on the art market in here for almost 30 years, finally closing in 1980. Pressed into existence by artists, Emil Bisttram, Cliff and Barbara Harmon, Ted Egri and others, these artists and the works of many Moderns will return to the Stables this summer for a major three day exhibition.
This Stables Gallery Pop-Up exhibition will be a fund raiser for the TCA, to set aside funds to remodel the Stables Gallery. A portion of our sales will go into a special account set aside for that purpose. In addition, Saturday Oct. 20th, at 2 pm, there will be a series of oral histories provided by Cliff & Barbara Harmon, David Witt (author of Modernists in Taos), and others to be announced.
Preview, October 19th, Friday 12:00 AM to 5:00 PM.
Opening Reception: Friday, October 19th, 5:00 PM to 8:00 AM
Exhibition is up for three days only:
Friday, October 19th, from 12:00 AM to 8:00 PM
Saturday, October 20th, from 11:00 AM to 6:00 PM.
Sunday, October 21st, from 11:00 AM to 6:00 PM.

Tom Dixon & Peter Parks
(select image above to view more of the artists' work)
A two person exhibition. Best friends and two of the finest abstract artists in Taos, both Dixon and Parks share the same passion for creating their work. Living for the creation of art without intention or forethought, art that means something, that which evokes an emotion, a thought or reference to the human condition. Art with a quality that is recognizable. Both with similar stories of tirelessly struggling with the resolution of their paintings and finding the strength to continue, knowing they may never realize the true meaning or the intrinsic value of what they create.
They are both true painters painting.
Opening Reception: August 11th, 2018, 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM
Exhibition Dates: August 11th, 2018 - September 3rd
Rhythm & Shape
Rhythm & Shape, a two person exhibition of distinctive paintings and sculpture. Courtney Azzara, an LA based artist, creates her art with canvas, paint and thread. Excited by the way stitching is an unconventional entryway into the act of painting, this gives her work its own breath and unique rhythm. Ron Lopez, a long time Taos artist, creates three dimensional objects from steel and wood, as well as paintings. His work is a raw and brilliant birth of abstract forms and reflect the dynamic juxtaposition of lines and shape.
Opening Reception: July 1st – 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM
Exhibition Dates: July 1st - July 23rd, 2018
Adeïne de La Noë
203 Fine Art is pleased to announce an exhibition of works from the estate of Adeïne de La Noë (1914 – 1987). Born in France and educated at the Beaux Arts in Lille and the Grande Chau-miere in Paris, de La Noë emigrated to the United States in 1956. She studied at the Art Students League, as well as with the well-known Abstract Expressionist Hans Hoffmann for two years, moving to Taos in 1961 for a residency at the Wurlitzer Foundation.
She was a strong and welcome addition to the Taos Moderns, and good friends with Agnes Martin. Adeïne would remain in Taos until the end of her life, becoming an active member of the Taos art colony and one of Taos's most respected artist. The last time her work was exhibited on this scale, with over 25 works represented in oil, watercolor, drawings and prints, was at her memorial 30 year retrospective at the Harwood Museum of Art in 1988. Highly influenced by the Abstract Expressionist movement in New York, she painted non-figurative and landscape work, with her later works being mostly of color fields.
Opening Reception: May 19, Saturday, 4:00 – 8:00 PM
Exhibition Dates: May 19 – June 24th, 2018
