We will state “Taos is art” until we’re blue in the face. Being an artist community, however, Taos isn’t just painters. It’s also furniture makers, santos and bultos creators (carvings in general are a very specialized art form that has been passed down for generations), retablo makers, printmakers, yarn spinners, handmade knife and Native drum makers, and peace pipe creators … this is home to many unique and gifted minds whose hands follow their every vision. You can see the talent in galleries and shops predominately from Taos Plaza down Kit Carson Road and really, all over town.
