Also very notable was the gift shop - it was filled with beautiful items from local artists and other items carefully chosen. Really gorgeous stuff! This... More

Everyone was so nice and helpful. The exhibit was wonderful but Fechin's home and wood carvings was the star attraction. The museum shop was just as lovely and had high quality items. Great local jewelry and art. A surprising treat for us all.

If you do one thing in Taos, you must do this museum. The rotating art exhibits are always wonderful and the woodwork and art by Nicolai Fechin is just unbelievable! You also get to see his studio which has more of his woodwork and hand-made furniture. The gift shop has been revamped and has exquisite works - most of it... More

As always, the Taos Art Museum offers engaging rotating exhibitions. I come to Taos at least once a year and always come to the Museum. This year I happily found the gift shop re-designed. It is beautifully done and enticing. A much needed improvement from some time ago.

This historic house and studio designed, built and carved by the Russian artist Nicolai Fechin is a beautiful piece of art in and of itself. This month the art museum featured one room dedicated to Fechin's work and ran a video history, a special photography exhibit by the talented contemporary Taos artist Lenny Foster on its second floor, and works...

I'm not a fan of Fechin's paintings, so I did not find this museum worthwhile. That said, his woodcarving in the house is stunning, the moreso because he did it in addition to his painting; I don't know when the man found time to sleep. If you're not familiar with Fechin's paintings, do some research and see what you think.... More
