Wonderful art from the Taos Art Society painters. All paintings were well presented and easy to view. Definitely worth a visit when in Taos.

My friend and I were genuinely smitten with the Harwood. Although the collection is small, it is diverse and carefully curated. We were delighted at the juxtaposition of classic and modern exhibits. Housed in a sprawling Adobe hacienda, the museum welcomes you to wander from...More
