Bash at the Blake Art Auction Preview



Stop by the museum (conference room off the parking area) to see an incredible selection of contemporary art and Pueblo pottery donated by collectors, foundations and artists to benefit the museum's programs and operations. The works are available in a silent auction and a live auction to be held at the Blake hotel in Taos Ski Valley on June 24. Buy-it-now pricing available on all silent auction items.

Larry Bell, Ken Price, Ronald Davis, and Dean Stockwell are four ex-pat L.A. artists whose work will be featured in "Bash at The Blake" gala and art auction on June 24, 2017 that will benefit the Harwood Museum of Art in Taos. In addition to works by these Cool School era L.A. artists, the Bash will auction a rare group of San Ildefonso Pueblo black-on-black pots by internationally renowned potter Maria Martinez. Exquisite pottery pieces from Acoma, Taos, and Santo Domingo Pueblos and a 5-foot panoramic photograph by Gus Foster of sunset on Highline Ridge in Taos Ski Valley are included in the auction list of 45 art objects.
