The artists in The Harwood Collection: Work by Women are pioneers. They are stewards of the living

Work by women zoe zimmermanlegacy of Taos arts, described by Harwood Museum director Richard Tobin as “a complex narrative shaped over centuries by the confluence of Native American, Hispano and Anglo cultures against the towering landscape of Taos.”

Artwork by over 80 women, many rarely shown, celebrate all women who share a maverick desire to express their personal visions in Taos. While Taos offers the freedom for women artists to mind their own spaces, their journey has too often been clouded by cultural, economic and social encumbrances. The Museum’s goal with this exhibition is to spark dialogue and renewed appreciation for working women artists – from Catharine Critcher, the only female to be invited into Taos Society of Artists, to Erin Currier, social commentator in the #MeToo era.
