Taos Center for the Arts

The Taos Center for the Arts (TCA) creates and presents high-quality, professional art experiences for the community of Taos.
TCA presents independent and foreign films, Metropolitan Opera Live in HD, and national dance and music tours such as Arlo Guthrie’s Journey on Tour. The TCA operates and maintains the Taos Community Auditorium, the Encore Gallery and the Stables Gallery in the heart of Taos. We support local visual artists and performing artists offering exhibition space and expertise in technical production and promotion. The TCA also provides educational arts programs for youth and adults.
In September each year, TCA presents Quick Draw. Artists will be creating their work at five different sites in downtown Taos this year. As every year the main site for Quick Draw is in the courtyard of the Stables Gallery. A live auction follows giving visitors a chance to purchase artwork hot off the easel.
