I don’t recall how or where I first met Erin Currier, but I’ve been looking at her work since her first show in Taos at the old South Side Bean. Erin Currier’s critically acclaimed traveling show, La Frontera opens at the Harwood Museum of Art on February 10th, in conjunction with Work by Women.
The Harwood Museum show, Work by Women, would not be complete without the inclusion of one Taosena in particular. Graphite drawings so classical and intricate, it was hard to believe they were made by a modern hand. Learn about the highly accomplished Taos artist; Maye Torres, and why locals call her a “national treasure”.

From studio skills to out door in the moment shots, Zimmerman captivates her audience with her photos. Her singular vision spots things that most miss, creating spectacular art.
