New Mexico

What draws artists to this part of the country?

Northern New Mexico offers a huge variety of scenery, from mountaintop lakes to river gorges, vast mesa views, wildflowers and wildlife. Culture draws us here too, where the presence of earlier peoples is still felt. With the UNESCO World Heritage site of Taos Pueblo to the south, the Rio Grande del Norte National Monument to the west, The Carson National Forest to the east, and Latir Lakes overlooking it all; northern Taos County is a unique place.

We hope you will join us August 14-15, 2021 for the  Questa Studio Art Tour.
